Pretty solid hype video
We should probably get this in writing... I'm in the same boat
That was one depressing ass hype video.
As I was watching it, I thought, well, skip the first minute and maybe it'll be pretty good. Then it was, skip the first two minutes, then Billy Bob and Rocky started talking and I figured you could skip the first three minutes. Basically, what that video shows is that Smith and Green each had one good run last year. I give that video a thumbs down.
So, you're questioning the solidity of the aforementioned hype video?
I looked up the word "hype" in the dictionary just to be sure I wasn't missing something. The first definition is, "to stimulate, excite or agitate." The music didn't really stimulate or excite me. Some of the clips were good, but there were too many negatives to get excited about the coming season (OSU followed by the PSU and MSU games.) Next I looked up agitate. One of it's definitions is "perturb." So in the sense that this video greatly perturbed me, I'm willing to concede that it's one solid hype video.
So it's a pretty solid perturb video? Can we get a title change mod gods?
That says "hype" or "pump up."
How do we know that was the intent of the video? Just because the OP wrote it?
I'm not responding to the creator of this video. I'm responding to the OP.
I would hate to see the humble video.
Pretty sure I heard the part from The Lion King where Mufassa's ghost is talking to Simba. I love the Lion King but I'm not so sure it belongs in a "hype" video.
Or Billy Bob Thorton. Not the best I've seen.
he edits these videos really well. But at the same time, starting with the OSU thing sucked. Just exemplifies that he didn't have a lot of material to work with from last year. . .
This is produced by Luke on here. I am subscribed to him as his stuff is pretty solid. If you watched that and didn't walk away from it saying "F' Yea! Let's get this season started", you may want to look into the possibility that you may just need to keep the tv off for the next year and take a break from Michigan athletics.
The production of it was very good, just poor selections and voice over. It was definitely not "hype" though.
Even the best sometimes put out a crappy product. It doesn't mean he sucks, just this particular video.
I think it relates perfectly to the fan base right now. I being one of them. I still think Hoke is the wrong selection and these last couple seasons proved it. But last year wasn't all horribleness. Those kids did go out there and try their best. Last season isn't always indicative of what this season will be. It's a video of hope that things will change. Even for the most 'down on the team' fan, it should get you pumped for this season to start.
His voice overs are usually a little shaky. Not sure why, but they just seems to not mix well with the soundtrack that he has going on.
The OP put that...the video title says nothing about "HYPE" so really everyone needs to relax on one word that the creator of the video NEVER used.
Here's the other video he produced for this season.
I'm just not feeling it. The first five minutes of this one was even more depressing than the first one. The last 45 seconds or so were okay, I guess. I only counted five positive plays for Michigan in that whole video.
Where's the hype?
I think i'll pass on the one saying "Why Do We Fall.?" I can throw some acid in my eyes and it will be less painful.
I enjoyed it, thanks for sharing.
I enjoyed this one, though for whatever reason it has a few random clips thrown in from 2 years ago:
That is the worst HYPE video I've ever seen unless your Ohio, Michigan State or Penn State-Delete
to Desmond Howard's Heisman pose, or Charles Woodson's famous interception.
Not so much hype. But a lot of reality.
This program needs to confront reality. And fight back.
Personally used to be all about hype videos... Now there are only certain ones that really excite me... Luke's videos seem to be just about the same thing over and over: same clips (I know there isn't much to choose from), same types of background music (Hans Zimmer/classical), same format (depressing clips followed by clips showing bright potential), etc. I really do admire his effort and editing abilities, but his hype videos seem really monotonous at points.
...don't watch? Just a thought...I could be way off though.
Because we all should have known prior to actually watching them. You choose some strange things to defend.
And then you'll see what I was commenting about.
If you're gonna be an asshole, at least do it right.
He was bitching about Luke's video and HIS personal preference and how it bothered HIM so much.
He mentioned the same themes and clips. So my suggestion was to maybe not watch Luke's videos anymore. It had nothing to him watching any other video out there...it was specific to Luke. It had nothing to do with anyone else watching them either.
Hopefully that makes sense.
I'm SHOCKED by some of the comments. What the fuck did you guys expect? We've be AWFUL (by our standards) since 2008 when Lloyd Carr left except for one year.
Guys...that was SIX YEARS AGO!
What highlights did you want to make it hype?
The only thing we have going for us is our history and the promise of our future. There has been nothing outside of ONE year to pull from.
I thought this was one of Luke's BEST videos. He got the depressing stuff in to set the tone, he brought in the history to bring us back to our roots and then gave us the few recent highlights that we have.
This isn't supposed to be some intro video with RAWK behind it and a bunch of big hits, fumbles, INTs, and stiff arms...if we had a bunch of those, we probably wouldn't have been 7-6 last year. When you go undefeated you get shit like Woodson climbing to the sky to take away a ball that the opposing QB was trying to put into the stands. We didn't go undefeated.
That thing was awesome, I hope every player sees it because it gives perspective and then gives you that "TIME TO GO TO WORK" feeling that every player needs to have.
They haven't accomplished shit on the field...what the hell do they need to celebrate from previous years outside of the OSU/Sugar Bowl win? I wouldn't want them celebrating anything because they haven't done anything.
This was perfect, great job Luke. Maybe we can play like we all want MICHIGAN to play and then next year's video can be RAWK and big hits and big plays and victory celebrations. In the meantime, this was spot on because it's exactly where we are, it's where we've been and it's where we're trying to go.
Let's go to work.
Yes, agreed. I personally really liked the video. Not many sunny moments in the recent past to pull from. Great hype video and feeling hopeful!
Damn. Tough crowd. Someone put the work in to produce this. If you can't at least say thank you, don't say anything. Jesus.
I liked the video, but it just kind of depresses me that our hype videos every year have the "We're in hell right now, gentlemen" speech. One of these years maybe we'll be good again and can have a tribute video from the year before.
That's my hope for this year leading into 2915. Give me a B1G Championship, no excuses.
I hope my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grand kids enjoy it.
With my wealth, and the extreme advances in technology, it's not crazy to think I won't live to be like  years old.
Very slick, professional editing. Nice work.
I don't know if I'd call it hype video as much as a period piece. It captures the mood of the fanbase right now: highly frustrated, still hopeful, still proud of who we are.
About this team and where it is...I mean it's titled something like "Team 135: Remember Who You Are."
If the OP doesn't call it a hype video, I don't think anyone reads that title and assumes they're going to be pumped up by watching it.
For me, I was trying to remember where "remember who you are" came from. I remembered that "why do we fall" is from the 1st Batman, but this one had me. It's the Lion King, which is odd, but whatever.
Nonethless...neither title for neither video makes me think oh this is going to be a highlight video!
I'm sure Luke could do that if he wanted, but again, what highlights is he going to pull? Even on of the highlights that he used in this was Countess running down the sidelines doing nothing else when we were up 4 touchdowns on Minnesota. That's a positive play, but it doesn't get me hype.
Hype comings from big moments in big games. If he made one and it was all EMU, WMU, Ohio, Deleware St., and Minnesota...people wouldn't be hype. That's why all this bitching is so stupid. Think about that for a second...even if we did have a bunch of sweet plays from those cupcake games, would that make you more excited over an average play in a big moment?
No. The Henne to Manningham is a routine throw and catch...it's hype because it won the game vs. a kind of B1G rival! Neither Desmond or Woodson's punt returns were THAT great...put those against a MAC school in the first game. We don't even remember them.
It's Ohio State and the fact that those two plays literally won two Heisman Trophies and BOTH were against our biggest rival.
You don't really have too many outstanding plays that stand alone regardless of team or situation. Woodson's MSU INT, various Denard plays, Braylonfest, Manningham/Arrington vs. Florida, UTL 1, UTL 2...those all stand alone. I suppose you can say the Clark hit on Miller or a Funchess hurdle or Devin @ Minnesota scramble and launch can go in a tier below because they're "cool."
But I guess we need more Desmond Morgan INT vs. UConn highlights to make people happy. Cue up that big stop to win the game vs. Akron. Let's get fired up!
Agree with everyone else. This feels like the "hype" video of a scrappy program that hasn't accomplished anything in decades. Sadly feels almost true as the years (8) since we were nationally relevant continue to pile up.
I gotta say though. I talked myself so low on this team and so has everyone else. When is the last time we came into a season with this 8-4 or 7-5 malaise/expectation? In the RR era we were praying for 7-8 wins. Now we're down on the team and have tempered expectations.
I'm starting to believe we are destined for a sneaky bounceback season. 8-1 in the games we're favored in at least 1 win against Ohio or State, and we've got a 9-10 win season. The defense has two senior starters on the line (one All-B1G caliber), two senior starters at linebacker (one All-B1G caliber), three upperclassmen starting in the secondary, and whatever impact Jabrill can give us.
Someone tell me we can't surprise against a joke schedule with only 3 ranked opponents.
Note: To hell with ND. I want to beat them sure, but I can accept that loss if it means we sweep our patsy slate of home games and beat one of our real rivals.
There are quite some internet tough guys arguing in the comment section of the video.
That says "hype" or "pump up"
How do we know that was the intent of the video? Just because the OP wrote it?
Maybe I'm wrong, but it seemed like the theme was "perseverance." It may better serve the players, but it sucks for us fans that can do next to nothing.
I'm just happy that no Chumbawamba songs were used and that there were no clips from The Horror.
I want this team to do well this year...been working too hard not to see some payoff. I believe in DG
