Apologize in advance if this is too RAWK for some of you. I happen to think that the best hype videos are rock songs heavy on drums, or rap with good beats. The problem I see with rap is too many bad lyrics which detracts from the video. I'm tired of movie quotes and "Better son/daughter".
So anyway, I purchased the new 3 Doors Down album yesterday and I thought the title track was pretty good. Lyrics are topical for UofM fans, and the drums would make for great synchnig with defensive hits and Denard running.
If anyone is thinking of a hype video I'd highly suggest this song.
Youtube video is rather poor audio quality, but enough for you to get a feel:
Another day in some other place
could someone please remind me
where the hell we are?
Another night I feel it come to life
How could this go so far?
The life I love is the one I lead
It gets crazy but that's fine by me
'cause I don't see the day
when I run all night
But I've got to say, there's no other way
I'm having the time of my life
The words you sing bring back memories
of so many days that have gone
I look back and smile at those forgotten miles
and laugh at all that went wrong
what I am is what I want
and I'll be this way 'til I'm dead and gone
For me that's all I need
To Live the way I please
There's some things that I can't make right
and it's been so long Lord since I've been home
but I'm having the time of my life.
Here is a link to the Transcript that a few people / articles have mentioned. SI's Stewart Mandel tweeted the link a little while ago. Its like 139 pages. I made it through the first 10 or so before I started skipping around.
The date for this may have already been known, but an official press release on the annual Fan Day was posted today at mgoblue.com:
July 22, 2011
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan football program will hold its annual Fan Day on Sunday, Aug. 14, at Michigan Stadium. The autograph session and opportunity to meet the 2011 Wolverines team will run from approximately 2-3:30 p.m. EDT.
The event is free and open to the public. All gates at the Big House will open starting at 1 p.m. Parking will be available in the lots adjacent to Michigan Stadium and Pioneer High School. In order to expedite the autograph process and accommodate as many fans as possible, players and head coach Brady Hoke will autograph one item per person.
Hoke will sign autographs on the Michigan Stadium field. Michigan players will be signing autographs along the north and south concourses at the concession stands by position groups. The offensive players will be located along the north side of the Big House between sections 29 and 38, with the defensive players residing on the south side between sections 8 and 18.
Check MGoBlue.com for player autograph locations which will be determined at a later date.
Just an apppetiser as we approach the season!
There is a story on the columbus dispatch saying OSU will not be hit with failure to monitor.
"Considering the institution's rules education and monitoring efforts, the enforcement staff did not believe a failure to monitor charge was appropriate in this case," the NCAA informed Ohio State.
