I was partial to the Better Son and Daughter last year. Is there a 2012 rehash? I went through a few. I will at least share my favorite so far for your troubles.
To embed video in OPs, you have to (a) change to plain text view, and (b) click the "use old code" box on youtube.
I hope this turns into a thread where everyone ends up posting their favorite hype videos!
That video needs a lot less Tebow.
At first I hated tebow. I hated him while he played for Florida. I hated Urban (still do). I hated all the hype with the Gators. I hated that he was picked so high in the draft. I hated that the Broncos beat the Steelers. But after a while I realized none of that is his fault. Seriously all the guy ever did was be honest and true to himself and work really fucking hard. I hate ESPN for blowing him up all the time, but I don't hate Tim Tebow. I actually kind of look up to him and I am an agnostic for some context. I just think he is a hard working guy who you can't help but root (route lulz) for. Now if he goes all OJ some day then I will go right back to disliking him, obvsly.
That was the response of a gentleman and a scholar. Well argued.
Most of the rest of them are ok, but don't especially stir the soul. This one does that, and it is more than just a series of images.
It is every bit of that.
Thanks to the OP for the thread. His choice might not have been my favorite, but few things are as subjective as a favored hype video!
This one is definitely my favorite. I don't know what it is about this on that makes my hair stand up. There have been a lot of good ones though.
This one is by far the best I've seen so far. Well at least it is my favorite. Goose bumps....
Immediately, I was really excited because the music is the same as the one in my favorite Breaking Bad tribute video (Ecstacy of Gold). Man, if I told you I wasn't a little teary eyed by the end of watching this, then I'd be lying. What really got me is Denard scoring a TD and a highlight of Desmond and Charles beside it.
At some point this season, it's just going to sink in that this is Denard's last season in a Michigan uniform. Like really sink in. Until then, I am going to try to savor this season as much as possible.
You sir, win the internet.
Lock the thread indeed.
Chills. Every fucking time.
Well edited and all of the best moments of 2011. Good work sir.
Linked the original thread. Blackgandhi definitely outdid him/herself with this one.
Not sure who did this one or if someone has already posted this to the blog, but this is by far my favorite one done this year. No hype video has even given me more chills than this one did.
is the best one so far, hands down. Something about the quotes and the darker music that makes it.
In the OP's embedded video, does anyone know why Brian Griese just says "National Championships" and not "11 National Championships"? I always thought it was strange that he didn't say the number. I get not saying it in front of the most wins, since that usually changes every week. But even Woodson says 3 Heisman's. Just find it strange.
Maybe because it's a disputed number? We tend to claim 11, but I think several sports outlets only recognize 7.
Not as good as the FERGODSAKES one but this was tweeted by MVictors last week.
This isn't Michigan specific but if this doesn't get you hyped for the season I don't know what will:
