Very solid effort.  I really appreciated the use of high quality video.  My biggest pet peave with hype videos is that I can't get pumped up watching grainy, pixelated clips.  There was some good editing too, definitely a great first production and I hope to see more from you in the future.  Can it be football season yet?

I loved the video. My only concern is the distinct lack of epic Beckmann audio...other than that, I will proudly share this video on facebook to promote your brother's skillz.

I'm not a big fan of the music, but you can't please everyone so thats not a big deal. But other then that i thought it was a really good hype video because honestly it got me PUMPED for the season!!

It was a good (Denard based) review of the entire season that brought back a lot of memories.
<br>This makes me really hope we keep two plays. The Denard fake run and pass to wide open receiver. And the Denard fake pass to the flat and run up the middle.

 That run at the 7:40 mark against BGSU was my favorite of the season. 3rd and 1 I remember thinking damn he's not going to get the first , then to quote Chris Berman "Whoop".

 Watching that video always helped me to remember how slow and terrible Notre Dame's defense looked last year. They had no answer for Denard and knew it was coming , I don't see much changing this year ( cept better play from our defense).

 Great job on the video

Watching this video got me all jakked up for September.. only a couple months away.  Some good editing, I enjoyed everything except the god awful music but that's obviously just personal preference.  The "turn up the lights" lyrics made sense but it's kind of distracting to hear some rapper drop a bunch of f-bombs and "nigga this nigga that" while I'm trying to watch Shoelace decimate ND's defense.

Loved the video, I seriously can't wait for the season to start. Brought back some good memories, and some not so good ones.... If only...

The video cuts were nice.

The music, if you can even call it that, was horrible and didn't mesh with the theme of the video. "Fuck this and fuck that" and dropping the n-word every minute should be left out of a hype video.

How the hell am I supposed to wait for the season to start now? And everything in my apartment is broken because I've been reenacting plays. Thanks a lot man.

I get exhausted just watching him run. He's in INCREDIBLE shape. Just watch how much distance he puts between himself and the ND DB's (douche bags or defensive backs, your choice) on the 87 yard run.

About the music? Pure Brilliance.Loved all of it, especially watching michigan run all over notre dames defense.Do you plan on making more videos like this?


July 2nd, 2011 at 2:26 AM ^

job of putting this together. I agree with some of the others about the music though. Although it is common for this adulterated language today, it's not something I like listening to and I definitely would not play it with the sound on whether my grandkids are here or not. There's some good music available of all genres without profanity. If you use these in the future I'm sure you will get nothing but high praise. Hope Denard continues where he left off last year with similar results. Go Blue!

Awesome work, I wish I could do stuff like this. First off, 5:55 was pure genius, beginning and the end especially was really cool. My only complaint would be the overuse of "n" bombs in the music (I'm not really a rap fan, I'm not trying to pick on your choice) and a Beckmann line or two cut in the background somehow would have been sweet too.

There really isn't much oppourtunity for hype videos when you have a coaching change... that really sucks.

Last season was pretty much my first season watching Michigan. Remember when all of you guys first saw "that" player? That was me with Denard. The first jersey I got was a #16 (which I'll probably regret eventually)

Also about the music- there's most likely something out there that can be hype music and represent a respectable person like Denard. I mean "All I care about is money" doesn't seem like a good representation of him. Tell your brother to listen to something like "That Ain't Classy" by Classified... that would have fit well.

Dear God I hope Mr. Robinson does great next season.

Very slick video.  Nicely done.  I thought the music was a bit harsh for a highlight video but I'm just old and don't understand you kids and your rap music.

Anyway, nice job.  Now get off my lawn.

Nice work, Golds, with that video.

In other news, that music made my head hurt. I might just be too old, but I sometimes think *I* could be a star in that field. Most of the songs seem to be:

Yo, yo, yo, yo ...

Set the video to this and I'll be completely sold:

Great video man! I understand the language in the music is mortifying for our older generation or for people who just don't know or understand the culture but I had no problem with it. I might have thrown "A Star is Born" off Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 album. That would have been a perfect fit. Other than that, keep it going brother.

Not bagging on the music per se as I understand it and enjoy it.  However, I wanted to play the vid for my two young sons (2 and 6 years old).  I had to turn the music off (obviously) and it was weird.  They kept asking me why there was no music.

Many Michigan fans are young kids and if you want the hype video played for them it has to be with different music.
