Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen excited for 30 for 30’s ‘The U Part 2’

Former University of Miami and current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is excited to see the ESPN documentary “The U Part 2,” he just doesn’t know what’s going to be included.

Olsen played at Miami between 2003-2006, and earlier in the year he was interviewed for the documentary, which is part of ESPN’s highly regarded 30 for 30 series.

This documentary, which will air at 9 p.m. Saturday on ESPN, is a sequel to “The U,” considered by many to be among the best of the 30 for 30 documentaries.

“I think sometimes Miami gets a bad rap and those things don’t necessarily help, but (director Billy) Corben did a really good job on the first one portraying Miami fairly. He’s a Miami guy, he wants to see them do well. Some of those stories are entertaining. Some of the characters they’ve had over the years have been entertaining and they won a lot of games – not so much when I was there – but we shared some moments that I’m sure this will cover.”

Olsen joked the interview was so long ago that he couldn’t remember what all he said, but he seemed to know that a rap song he participated in may be revisited.

Olsen was one of several Hurricanes players who participated in a nine-minute rap song dubbed the “7th Floor Crew,” which describes in raunchy – and exaggerated – detail the college lifestyle of the football players.

“Yeah I’m sure there will be stuff,” Olsen said. “We’ve been down those roads before. It is what it is. Nowadays there’s no hiding anything because those stories have been out for a long time. We had fights, we had it all.”
