One more article before I turn in for the night. This one comes from Doug Harris of the Dayton Daily News:
I was talking before the football season to University of Dayton defensive coordinator Landon Fox, who once was a graduate assistant under Brady Hoke, about whether he felt the new Michigan head coach could flip the Ohio State rivalry in the Wolverines’ favor.
Fox had no doubts.
“He’s a great recruiter. And once you get players, the rest is easy,” he said.
I was skeptical then, but I’m not anymore after watching the Wolverines’ implausible win against Notre Dame last Saturday when they scored two touchdowns in the final 72 seconds.
Yes, they still have issues on defense, but that’s not likely to last. Hoke has assembled the nation’s No. 3 recruiting class for 2012, and I imagine the Wolverines have gotten a significant jump with juniors for 2013.
ESPN basically gave them a one-hour commercial after that prime-time game, frequently going back during “SportsCenter” for live look-ins. And announcers Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit marveled at how the 114,000 fans wouldn’t leave.

I've been trying for months to try and find the intro to the 2008 Capital One Bowl-- it was phenomenal and one of the best "redemption" meme videos I've ever seen, especially given the outcome of the game against Florida.
This beginning can be seen in the first 14 seconds of this hype video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niB-naNtmv4&NR=1
Does anyone have any idea where I might find it, or if it is posted in its entirety somewhere? All the Ten Yard Torrents of the game show the entirety of the game, but none of the pregame hype video by ABC.
Would be incredibly grateful if anyone could help me out with this!
