Iowa Hype Video with OSU as Evil Empire

Submitted by StephenRKass on November 11th, 2015 at 9:48 AM

Here is an Iowa hype video with tOSU cast as the evil empire. So, my preferred narrative obviously is for Michigan to win five more games. But I still think this is an excellent hype video. Regardless of Iowa or Michigan, I think Ohio State has definitely been the evil empire.

I really hope they get their asses handed to them by Minnesota this week, just because their fans are clearly looking ahead.  But OSU is definitely evil.  Not gonna call them an empire.

I have to admit, I did not get the appeal of this until about the 1:22 mark.  Then I saw the vintage Hayden Fry pornstache (with Fry identified as a Jedi), and I got it.  An epiphany of sorts.

Woody Hayes is Hayden Fry's father.

Fucking John Williams is a Jedi master with movie scores.  That "Binary Sun" theme is amazing and adapted very well for the trailer.  I get chills every time I listen to/watch the trailer. I feel like a mind-trick was used on me to get chills while watching Iowa footage.

Calling them "tOSU" is my personal mocking of them. Because it is so patently ridiculous. Self congratulatory, etc., etc. This, incidentally, is why Brian isn't a fan of some of the text in the stadium intro video with James Earl Jones voiceover. Those who are the best don't need to congratulate themselves.

Yeah, this was better than I expected. 

In some other parallel universe in which UM is not the B1G East representative in the Championship game, I will be rooting so hard for Iowa to upseat all that is Evil.

Here goes my list of possible outcomes

1. I want Michgan to win rest of games and to beat undefeated Iowa

2.). Michigan win rest of games but beat a 1 loss Iowa team in B10 ship game.

3. olieo lose to one loss Iowa team in B10 ship so no Big 10 team is in playoff. (If Michigan lost the game)

999,999,999,999. Any other Big 10 team goes to playoff

I do not root for other Big 10 teams. Just Michigan
