Video Of All Varieties: Nebraska 2011

Parkinggod highlights:

The MGoBlue highlights use that frustratingly close camera angle but here they are:

Wolverine Historian has a longer reel if that's your jam. It's not as high quality as the others.


This really should have been the entire halftime show. 20 minutes of Nyancat. I also think they should replace Seven Nation Army with Nyancat. It would have the same effect on the offense that Iowa's pink locker room does.

Mattison's… interesting gesture:

If you want to know what the hell I was talking about on the twitters, the entire MMB halftime show was captured. It has not gotten good reviews, but at least they're trying to entertain. Also their pregame routine was captured.

More after the jump.

Fitz runs right at you for six:

Postgame tunnel:

Both of those via UMGoBlue.

Postgame interviews:

Card stunt:

(I imagine stunt men are livid that "holding up a colored card" is now classified as a stunt.)


Aaaand do this:

Mattison = sexiest coordinator ever!!  Grabbing his nipples and shaking them like dogs would takes his sex appeal to the next level. 

I saw that live and went WTF?  I guess I wasn't the only one.

I sat with a former OSU bandmember at the Nebraska game.  She likes our band; she's always amazed at how we sound, with woodwinds.  "Like Broadway," she thinks, "or a symphonic band."  And both of us were astonished at how disjointed and awkward the show was.  Her complaint was technical -- "See how everybody is looking at the video board?  They should be looking at the band... they worked hours and hours to get their movements as precise as they are...  And nobody's watching them..."

I suppose that somebody had the inspirational idea to topically play off the existence of the new video boards, which failed almost up to the moment of truth for the halftime show.  You sort of wonder -- would the Marching Band show have been possibly better, if the scoreboards had continued to fail through halftime?

During the Carr ceremony they described him as the "second-winningest coach in Michigan history."  Isn't he third in wins, behind Bo and Yost?

Also: is that video of the postgame tunnel walk, or the halftime walk?  Looking at the crowd (and the fact our guys went in the tunnel right after Nebraska's did, rather than go to the student section) suggests halftime.

Hoke can sound like Carr in interviews all he wants as long and I'll still love him just as long as he never emulates LC's game theory, penchant for making enemies and highly conditional loyalty to the program.

but I love you for the Scott Joplin reference, because it is true. I thought the (video of) the show was great and think the band should be encouraged to be timely and have fun. If the stadium is going to play piped in music all the time, why not have the band have fun with it?

I guess you young whippersnappers would prefer a halftime "band" show that is played out entirely on the scoreboard?  The show Saturday came fairly close to that "ideal."  Wouldn't it have been ironic if this "tech savvy" show had to go forward in a power outage?  And, since you're hating on Scott Joplin, maybe it's time to phase out "The Victors" while we're at it -- that song is, like, over a hundred years old!

I've gotta go with Bando on this one -- "A" for effort, but "F" for execution.
