Fox Releases Michigan Commercial

Submitted by Blueblood2991 on August 23rd, 2017 at 5:41 PM

Fox released commercials for all of the B1G teams today. Say what you will about Fox's coverage of football, but they did a really nice job with all of these. They're narrated by Michael Kelly (Doug Stamper from House of Cards).

Not really newsworthy, but it's a slow day. The Michigan one got me way too hyped.

Rest of the B1G:  

Will embed the Michigan one in the first comment below.

That's pretty cool.

Early yet, but my initial impression is that Fox is stepping up their attention to college football this season, sensibly given their increased investment. At least, the promos suggest this.

They were all well done, so I have to credit Fox for that, but the Michigan one is the best. Chewing its foot off so it can still come after you? No matter how many degrees below zero and outnumbered? And that shot of the Big House at the end... Love it!

Still, they deserve much credit for finding something for Rutgers and Kelly should get an Academy Award for his performance. His voice never cracked with laughter, even in the slightest!

Very nice.

I wasn't aware that anyone had major issues with Fox's college football coverage. They're much better than ESPN. Also, Gus Johnson works there. That guy could make a turtle race seem exciting.
