30 for 30

As it happened 30 years ago, we're really not ruining anything by telling you that NC State won the 1983 'March Madness' men's NCAA basketball tournament. This is the story of that team, of the players and coaches (led by Jim Valvano) who made that win happen, who made that dream come true. You want an inspiring tale as the tournament revs up in 2013? We don't think you'll do better than this. The film is from Jonathan Hock who also gave us one of the last episodes of "30 for 30" in the show's first season -- "The Best that Never was."

It has been a long time since the last new episode of "30 for 30." In fact, unless we're mistaken, it was way back in April. And, yes, we're aware of the foolishness of calling this "30 for 30" even though we're now way past 30 films and past ESPN's 30th anniversary. We don't care. What we care about is the documentary series' ability to explore great (or horrible) moments in sports history, as well as iconic figures, and to do so in a completely compelling, engrossing, manner. Up tonight is the tale of Eddie Aikau, the Hawaiian surfer who was lost at sea 35 years ago.

The notion behind this latest "30 for 30" is that the NFL wasn't always the powerhouse league we know and love today. In fact, in 1983, the league may have been at its lowest point, but that all turned around with an NFL Draft that featured John Elway and Dan Marino (and four other quarterbacks) going in the first round. Just where was the NFL at that point and how did things change following the draft? What did Elway and Marino do for the league? That is what we're going to learn tonight.
