Anyone ever see this show? It's been airing on ESPN2 a lot lately.

Summer House is a reality series that airs on ESPNU (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESPNU) and is hosted by Chris Spielman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Spielman). The show takes six of the nation's top college football (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_football) incoming freshman and put them in a house in Chicago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago) for one week. Summer House gives viewers an inside look at the future college football stars. The players compete against each other to be named The King of the House. The competitors earn points for each challenge they compete in, leading up to the final day and the crowning of The King of the House. Between competitions and their day-to-day interactions with each other and sports celebrities, the players learn what it takes to succeed on the field and off the field. It's main sponsors are Under Armor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_Armor), Direct TV (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_TV) and Dick's Sporting Goods (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick%27s_Sporting_Goods).

This year's players include...

DE Richetti Jones (Oklahoma State)
HB Danny Collins (Towson)
HB Brian Maddox (South Carolina)
WR Greg Little (North Carolina)
DB Taylor Skaufel (Stanford)
LB Chris Gallipo (USC)

It's pretty entertaining...I was just flipping through the channels and saw my boy Brian Maddox carrying a fire hose around...so, i started to watch. ha. Pretty good show, anyone watch?

Oh I know...I just copied and pasted the description. I know a great deal about these guys outside of Collins who i havent heard much about before this show. The description says "top recruits" but, when you have a kid from Towson on there...that's not the case. No offense to Towson and their recruits.

I have a friend who plays for Towson.

Anyway, yeah I'm watching right now. They all went up to Philly and had competitions involving jump roping, sit ups, and push ups...old school...good stuff. Then Little won another challenge when they raced up and down the Philly museum of art steps (Rocky's steps). After that they went to a Philadelphia Soul game and Little's little reward was he got sit and chat it up w/ Jaws. I really like this show and Spielman was always one of my fav LB's...also, Brian Maddox is on it so, that's a plus too. good stuff...yes sir. :)

Little is a stud...4 star recruit...I was hoping he would give SC some consideration but, he wasnt interested. Little wont start anytime soon... Nicks(SO.), Foster(JR.), and Tate(JR.) all have a fews years of eligibility left. Nicks is having another great year. I think Little may have seen the field at receiver in the opener but, I dont think he figures much into the plans much this year...he has seen a little action as a kick returner, though. He's gonna be a good one down the road. You gotta love what Davis has done there w/ their recruiting...they arent too great right now but, he is building something at NC that could be real special.

Came down to the wire. Given ND's current situation...he probably made the right choice.

On a different note...I wonder what's gonna happen down the line w/ Yates/Paulus at QB. Yates has looked great up until the USF beat down.

That was an ugly beatdown. I just watched the final episode on ESPN 2. The joust and the golf was funny.
