ESPN Films' long-anticipated documentary on Maurice Clarett and Jim Tressel debuts Saturday, and the Worldwide Leader is sparing no expense in promoting its latest addition to by far its most substantive series.

Here is what #13's schedule looks like this week:


Monday: Meeting with prized Michigan recruit Jabril Peppers and the Paramus Catholic (NJ) football team for a private screening of Youngstown Boys and a Q&A. [Ed. Troll hard, WWL]

Tuesday: ABC social media gamut, numerous one-on-one interviews and conference calls followed by the NYC premier of the film in the Hearst Tower.

Wednesday: A full day in Bristol: Linda Cohn's podcast, live appearances on SportsCenter, ESPNU College Football Daily, Dan LeBatard's show, another SportsCenter, Scott Van Pelt and Russillo, Numbers Never Lie, another SportsCenter, Outside the Lines, Sedano/Stink on ESPN Radio and finally an ESPN Cleveland interview.

Thursday: Back to Columbus for the local premier of Youngstown Boys and the reception that follows (Kyle, Walt and Ramzy will be attending).

Friday: Appearances on ESPN Cleveland's The Really Big Show and ESPN Miami 104.3 The Ticket.


Saturday: Youngstown Boys airs on ESPN immediately following the Heisman Trophy presentation.

If you would like to watch its first public airing with Maurice (!) you can - he is sponsoring a coat drive for the needy and is using the premier as a vehicle to do so.

Bring your coat(s) to Cypress Wesleyan Church beginning at 6pm Saturday and stick around for the airing. You can meet Maurice, see Youngstown Boys and help someone less fortunate stay a little warmer this winter.

For more information see his web site.

We've already seen the film and it is terrific. Stay tuned to 11W this week to go behind-the-scenes of Youngstown Boys with features and interviews you will not find anywhere else.

For me, this doc couldn't come at a better time.
It's going to be tough next weekend without Buckeye football, but in an ironic twist, ESPN is going to help me through it.

Man, when this was first announced I had such different expectations about what watching the premier would be like.  I figured Miller would at least get an invite to the Heisman ceremony and we'd be headed to the Rose Bowl at a minimum. And then MSU decided to kick my nuts up into my stomach.  Oh well.  Still looking forward to this, but may be a little more bittersweet in the context of how this season played out.
