What started as an interesting sports story has turned into a fascinating documentary on legendary University of Kentucky basketball coach Adolph Rupp. Dick Gabriel of WKYT-TV (Lexington, KY) and the Big Blue Sports Network has produced the definitive modern-era report on the myths and facts behind Coach Ruppís racist reputation.

Gabrielís documentary is a straight-on look at the accusations made against Rupp over the years supported by interesting, insightful interviews with many former players, coaches and friends of coach Rupp such as C. M. Newton, Larry Conley, former Rupp assistant coach Neil Reed and Jim Tucker, an African-American from Paris, Kentucky for whom coach Rupp helped arrange a scholarship to Duquesne University in the 1950ís.

Adolph Rupp: Myth, Legend and Fact may change some peopleís view of coach and at the very least provide documented fact behind the perhaps fictional racist image of one of the countryís greatest collegiate coaches.
