ESPN’s upcoming documentary “Football is US: The College Player” looks like it’s going to be lit.

The plot of the documentary, according to a release from ESPN, is as follows:

Football is US: The College Player, directed by veteran 30 for 30 filmmaker and Emmy Award-winner Jonathan Hock, will premiere on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 3 p.m. ET on ABC, before re-airs on ESPN and ESPN2. The 90-minute documentary examines the evolution of the young men who have played college football over the past 150 years, and how their legacies have fueled the sport’s unabated rise in popularity.

ESPN also said there will be interviews with Johnny Manziel, Tim Tebow and Tua Tagovailoa. Watch the intro below.

I can’t wait for this documentary to drop Saturday. I absolutely can’t wait. It looks like it’s going to be straight porn for fans of the game.

I couldn’t be more pumped if I tried. Interviews with Manziel, Tebow and Tua? Yeah, I’m absolutely juiced right now.

If you’re not excited for “Football is US: The College,” then you’re just not a real fan. It’s that simple. There’s no other way to say it.

You’re either going to watch this, or you should just stop lying about loving college football. This is going to be absolutely glorious as we go through the epic history of the greatest sport ever played.
