I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
So a Sparty made a video about the fans of Michigan (and other schools) that have no connection to the school outside of fandom.
Having difficulty embedding it so... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46MsGQFrzPE
His thesis is that only students have earned the right to say "we", which is disagree with because only players truly have that right. Also only alumni are able to build that close of a bond because of the shared struggle financially and emotionally.
If there is no connection to the school you should be a professional sports team fan instead.
I am a huge supporter of sidewalk alumni myself but I was curious what other people felt about the issue.
A new Youtube video is a well-done 6-minute long video of the greatest moments in the history of sports.
It's a bit heavy on Jordan, Ali and Vince Carter dunks, but there are some Michigan clips that are included:
- Desmond striking the pose
- Webber's timeout
- Sam McGuffie hurdling his HS opponent
- Brady during the Patriots' SB celebration
Many of you know of the legendary MGOBLOGGER known as WolverineHistorian. Many of you have watched his video recaps on the youtubez and basked in moments of Michigans great history. I spent a good chunk the other day organizing all of his (and a few other game recaps by others) into playlists, by the year, in order of games played throughout the season, with the extracurricular videos at the end. (1997 took me a good 45 minutes.)
I've got all of the playlists set up and ready to go on my Apple TV at home, but I wanted to share the playlists with you. Here is the problem, i can't seem to find a way to access my playlists as a guest on my youtube channel. In essence, I don't know what I can do to post them to where you can find them. I know that it will be mid April before we know it, and we'll all be going through football withdrawl. I'm stoked to be able to go back and watch past whole and partial seasons, but want you guys to have access too.
Anybody know how I can make these playlists available, findable, accessable, etc.?
I'm not trying to steal WH's thunder. He did all of the work, and great work at that. I am simply OCD and wanted to get the videos in order for my own purposes.
Let me know how I can do this.
AND BEAT OHIO!
I would have posted this in the other thread, but it was buried and probably wouldn't be checked much. I found the full version that was just published on ESPN (per youtube), and I didn't see it posted yet, so I decided to share.
Some people probably won't like it, but deal with it. I will probably end up playing this before leaving my house on Saturdays heading to campus. I, for one, think I might be warming up to it.
So I am browsing the celebration threads last night, and I noticed something Bando Calrissian said that surprised me: There are no highlights of the 1996 National Championship game or 1998 National Championship game (except the Langfeld goal) on YouTube. I never searched since I made highlight clips of each game in the past. So I decided to channel my inner WolverineHistorian and post them on youtube. The quality is not the best since they were originally formatted for my ipod, but they should do a decent job.
(I am hung over from celebrating in St.Paul and suck at embedding, so someone please help if you want them embedded lol)
MGoBoard, I require your assistance. I once saw a video posted on the board which was a hilarious fake recruiting video. It featured a recruit who in every play was simply running off the field, standing on the sidelines, etc. I believe that I first saw the video summer of last year.
I've searched YouTube, MGoBlog, and the internet in general for this video but have been unable to find it. Does anyone know what video I'm talking about and where I can find it? I've referenced this video several times with a friend and he's expressed interest in seeing it.
