You know the one I'm talking about. It started in 2009, was continued in 2010, and now there's a conspicuous lack of it. I'd make it if I had any video editing skills whatsoever, but as it is it would wind up as some gruesome oddity somewhere between Star Wars Episode I and Snakes on a Plane. So, I'm begging one of you MGoPosters with movie skills: Can you please make one of those ultra-baller super-cool 2011 hype videos with the song "Better Son/Daughter" again? It just seems like my summer isn't complete without it. Someone help me.
Somebody make that video
great (new) tradition
One "better son better daughter" hype video, for 2009. I think the one for 2010 was lil Wayne. There is not a user generated hype video for 2011 yet, although someone did make something about 20 minutes long with nothing but Denard...
This was the (edit: user-made, i think)one from 2010, seemed pretty well done and well received around here:
Love Rilo Kiley. I remember seeing this hype video last year and thinking it may have been the best I've ever seen, just for pure creativity points.
Why oh why do I punish myself by reading youtube comment sections?
I still get chills in that clip when Denard scores his first TD.
Watching that video is bittersweet because, on one hand, the video and the song build to an awesome apex that gives me chills. However, to get to that apex, I have to watch two minutes of painful highights (and some after the apex).
I'm hoping this year we can make a video at the end of the year, with the painful, black and white portion composed of the '07-10 seasons and the beautiful, glourious, orchestral apex is all highlights from the coming year.
...not what you requested, but my favorite for 2011 so far....

I love the intro in this video. I wish it had more clips throughout the video, but really enjoy this one.
On one condition:
That this is the last year for a while that every 'hype' video has to start with two minutes of us getting our asses kicked in black and white.
There's enough material that we don't need to see anything really bad this year. Shit, there was even that one defensive touchdown against Purdue, so the D can represent. That, and lots of Denard running fast.
Well, RR was all:
...and GERG was like:
So there's at least 13 seconds of unpleasantness. there may have been more, but I blacked out for a few months.
I'm just saying there were enough great touchdowns to fill a four minute video. I was a mod for all of the LiveBlogs, so I distinctly remember some slightly negative things.
Just remember, no touchdown on the first drive = let's give Tate a shot. I wonder if that'll happen again this year even though Tate is gone.
You'll hear "put Tate in" several times next year. Hell, if you listen carefully, you'll still hear people mumble about giving Jermaine Gonzales or Matt Gutierrez a shot under center.
It's gotta start working one of these years.
Here's another version, the song always gives me chills:
Brandon Minor destroyed PSU on those two carries. MANBALL
I graduated this past April, and I very much love my new city and job... but seeing these replays honestly brought a few tears to my eyes. To those of you on mgoblog who are still current students, I promise you, you have no idea how much you will miss UofM and AA until you are gone.
Enjoy every second of it. Even the losses, cause you are experiencing it all with friends.
Now to make up for this sappy post I will go eat some Wheaties with beer.
Well... here is a pic of the t-shirt I am wearing:
Nice save! And a cool t-shirt too.
Forgot until I just watched the video
No more Rilo Kiley. Like Josh Groban, they are to be associated with the previous regime only.
Brady Hoke does not listen to girlie indie rock bands.
I love that song, and those videos, but that was the RR era. I was and am a RR fan, and have my doubts about how we handled the transition (Brandon's comments about not needing a map of the campus, etc., etc.), cringe at the arguments people make against the old regime, etc., but it's the beginning of a new era, and Hoke/Mattison need a different song. I'll have bittersweet memories of the past era (I'm sure some people will chime in and say, IT WAS ONLY BITTER), but let's leave that in the past and use a new song for the new era.
I think this song goes perfect with our current situation and could really make a good video with our transition. No defense/spread --> Amazing* defense/MANBALL**
*A guy can dream
**but hopefully not too much
I miss Brandon Graham and Brandon Minor. :(
But my absolute favorite is the Explosions in the Sky Versus Commercial. Great song, great speech, great cuts, perfect length...only thing is video quality isn't perfect...but I'll overlook that...
Denard's run 1:21 makes my back hair stand on end....
And TIMBLUE....how bouts a repeat?!?
I might now. Im thinkin about it.
Oh thanks man, I made that one. lol
Nice man, great video, thanks very much for it. I hope you're struck by inspiration this year too.
I shared that song with everyone I know. They all loved it. I didn't send anyone the hype video because most of the people that I know don't care about Michigan or college football. However, now that they all know the song I will send them the hype video this year if someone makes it. Please, someone make it.
Hey look, another thread for bashing RR.
This was posted last year, and yes it is from bleacher report, however it's well done videos. Love the radiohead one.
P.S. I reccomend not putitng yourself through watching these and then reminiscing about the expectations for last year.
I'm surprised I haven't seen that article until now. My video was #4 on the list.
