I'm sure this is generational, but that music made my balls crawl back up inside my pelvis and commit suicide.

But I liked the clips and editing, so 2/3 ain't bad?

What we need is a new fight song, because obviously. "The Victors" was good in its day, but if someone would give me $2,750 I could write a new fight song. Maybe we could do a Kickstarter campaign to pay me for my musical skills, and then maybe we could call it "Hail and Unite", or maybe "Unite and Hail", I'm not realy sure, and then get all the big name University Alumni (ha ha I got the suffix right, thank goodness for Google) like Madonna and the Unabomber, and my homeys from the class of '71 and have a big get together just like that Coca Cola thing that saved the world.

Okay I've got to admit, I have "The Victors" as the call signal on my cell phone, so I guess it can't be that bad, and then also it's been around since 1898 when it was written by Louis Elbel and then first played by the John Phillips Sousa Band, and then I'm not really sure if Fielding Yost or Bo Schembeckler or Jim Harbaugh would approve, so I'm still giving this some thought.

You must remember those frat clowns who wanted to write an updated Michigan fight song. They even made a video. It was completely absurd.

So I was just sticking a fork in those potato heads to make sure they're done.

Welp, clearly the music is polarizing. I wanted some upbeat music and I love working out to this song, plus it enabled syncing big hits with the bass. Either way, I'm still proud of the video!

I enjoyed it.

Regarding Speight's somewhat-odd jump into the endzone against Maryland (0:19), did anyone else have flashbacks to the old 80's video game Pitfall?  Any Photoshop wizards, feel free to go to town.
