To start the doc with the missed shot by Arike when we lost to Stanford in the Elite 8 in 2017 and then cover the 2018 season so well with short jump-offs honoring Muffet's HOF award/competitiveness, previous great ND teams (2001, 5 straight F4s), ND fan support, & ND/UConn rivalry was overall well executed. Skylar's commentary and personal thoughts especially on the last two games were wonderful. The ND coach's and Adam Amin's interviews were well placed as they covered the 2018 season and the the drama of the NC with flashbacks was great. When you then see Arike's ESPN interview after her game winning shot against Mississippi State saying "this is what we do" you realize how aptly this was titled. Good close showing the NC celebration, DWTS, Ellen/Kobe trip, and Espy victory as the spoils, I am sure looking forward to this coming season.


Adam Amin raised his status of ESPN commentators on my list

I don't think you could fake the exuberance - he became a Notre Dame fan (I became an Adam Amin fan)

And he was almost wearing Blue & Gold (I believe the jacket was actually tan, but looked gold - I was watching on my phone)

It was very well done


He was really terrific. Loved the shots of him just rollin

around in his chair, saying nothing and allowing shots of the crowd going wild. He became one of my favorites.


For my money, anyone who didn’t love the story of NDWBB
