WSU contacted by HBO for Hard Knocks style show
PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University has been contacted by HBO to be featured in a Hard Knocks type show that would air later in the college football season. That’s according to a source close to the WSU football program, who made it clear nothing has been signed yet.
Devilsdigest.com, an Arizona State University athletics fan site, tweeted that there are four college football programs expected to be featured by HBO: ASU, WSU, Penn State University and the University of Alabama.
HBO has chosen four college programs to run a Hard Knocks like show later in the season. ASU will be featured during the week of home game versus Washington State who was also chosen for the show along with Penn State and Alabama.

Hard Knocks is a reality sports documentary television series produced by NFL Films and HBO. It’s not clear what the college football show would be named or what kind of access the universities would provide.
An HBO show would provide tremendous exposure for WSU and its football program. Head coach Mike Leach, known for his colorful quotes, is surely a major factor in HBO’s interest in WSU.
