Been seeing this all over lately... It's pretty epic but I haven't seen it mentioned here yet. Of course, I did not create it and I did not have anything to do with doing so.

Slow time on the board, so I've decided to put together a short list of my personal All Time Michigan Hype Team. Players who were hyped to oblivion by one sector of the fanbase or media or the other, but never really turned into what was hoped. I refrain from including any current players as their books are not yet written so who knows what might happen. I don't write this list as a "man this guy sucked," but more of a "if only he had lived up to the hype." Many of these guys were just the unfortunate victim of injury or circumstance that never worked out. I encourage you to add your own.
QB: Drew Henson, Clayton Richard,
RB: Sam McGuffie, Kevin Grady, Justin Fargas, Pierre Rembert
WR: Antonio Bass (captain of the team and legend in our hearts), Darryl Stonum, Carl Tabb, Je'Ron Stokes
TE: Chris Barnett
OL: Marques Slocum (Fuck Lion), Corey Zirbel, Dann O'neill
DL: Shantee Orr, Larry Harrison, Eugene Germany, Anthony LaLota,
LB: Cobrani Mixon, Marcus Witherspoon, Taylor Hill, Kellen Jones
DB: Darnell Hood, Quiton McCoy, Boubacar Cissoko, Vlad Emilien, JT Turner, Cullen Christian, Demar Dorsey,
K/P: Nate DeLong (sentimental pick. my brother was his HS teammate and long snapper, incredible athlete and had a tremendous leg, just never worked out at M, sadly.)
Apparently, the rock band, Pop Evil, has recorded a Michigan Football tribute song. The song will be released at the end of the month and they made a 'teaser trailer'/hype video for it. I found it here: http://banana1015.com/pop-evil-teases-2011-michigan-wolverines-football-song-in-the-big-house/ and it is pretty cool. This is my first time starting a topic. Hope the embed works.
One of the best/ longest hype videos I've seen. Not mine, all credit to the creator of the video. For those who can't take the wait and need something to kill some time.
I take no credit for any of the film used in the video, just the video itself. Thanks to all those who helped create these clips to be used in the video. Go Blue!
I was searching around the internet for the hype video that they play before the games in the Big House ("The Tradition Continues" -- I still haven't found it), and I came across this site with the promo videos for Michigan basketball and Michigan hockey (along with numerous other videos for other schools and sports).
I don't know if this is a well known site or not, if it isn't, here you all are, in the off chance you were looking for this.
