This one gets me fired up every year before The Game. Too bad we won't be hearing Keith on Saturday
2003 UM-OSU Keith Jackson Intro
Keith knew how to build hype for a game...an art Musberger is still workin on.
YOU ARE LOOKING LIIIIIVVVEE!
Someone should start an all-encompassing thread for people to post their favorite hype videos and TV intros in preparation for tomorrow's game so they are all in one place. I would, but I can't start one yet.
and one of Keith Jackson's best calls beginning to end. As to Musberger, 2006 Intro to The Game was pretty solid, but he still has work to do.
Great post!! This is completely on topic though.
Wasn't trying to be a douche.. This is a spot on great post this week and I thank you for it. We need more posts like this one this week. This is the greatest rivalry in all of sports and while some may have issues with the current state of the program it is important to remember what the game on Saturday means. It is not about trying to become bowl eligible or simply win our 6th game this season...it is much more than that. It is everything that Jackson had to say in that intro.
So thanks again sir.
You didn't come across as rude at all. Glad you enjoyed!
the problem for me is i love the keith jackson intro but i dont like the coldplay music...and i like the requiem music during the 2006 but dont like musbergers intro... ahhh what to do
Solid Post, much appreciated.
but I did like the "these are your teams, this is your game." Actually brought chills, from Brent frickin Mustberger. Had to be the writers. I will never forget the first part of that actual game telecast once all the pregame was over. First scene was kind of "foot up" shot of Breaston back deep to receive. Man, I really wanted them to win that game.
Immediately upon viewing this, I started donning a pair of sweatpants and heading down to the stadium so I could see what it looks like when the last glow of light slips away from the Big House. But it's, like, five hours until sunset so I'll go later. Damn you, Keith....
