I remember watching one of those games where we beat OSU, but I can't. Hopefully this year  will be the first win against OSU that I get to see. Awesome video and Go Blue!

absolutely, glad I could figure it out (first time embedding). 


By the way, really enjoyed the video. The visual history presented of the rivalry is great, the beat is decent, and there's no silly dialogue (aside from the ubiquitous Musberger) to distract from the footage. Good work.

Did anyone else see the hype video set to the band "Pop Evil," who are apparently Michigan fans, and think "Jesus. We have the budget version of Nickelback, which was previously unimaginable, doing a song about our school?"

My god. The Pop Evil song is so terrible. It makes me sad inside.

Cute.  It does sorta sound like their Monday Night Raw theme.  I don't mind it myself.  As for sounding like another band, that is usually the only way to get the "big boys" to promote your music.  

If you don't sound like one of about five bands in any genre, the comglomerates like Clear Channel, etc won't play your music and you don't have a career except scraping for bar gigs, which have also diminished over the years.  

I noticed this trend start to really take hold in the 1990's.  It's what turned alt into a mainstream joke, and new country into same old country.  It's also what made it so that any classic artist who puts out new work has a big problem getting it played, even on "classic rock" stations.

These give me goosebumps every time. I'm not a crier, but I get the feeling that I'll get a little teary-eyed if (when) we beat osu this year. First time I watched them play (2003 at Michigan Stadium) we won, I rushed the field with my roommate thinking how much fun this was going to be every year. Sadly, that was the last time we beat 'em. Things need to change...

I misspoke: After watching the hype video, I realized I will probably cry like a child if/when we beat them. Sweet, cathartic weeping. Pathetic, perhaps. But I'm ok with it.

If ohiostate fans are mad that brady hoke refers to them as ohio, well they can stop whining. They are the ones who started it. Brady Hoke is just being historically accurate.

I sure do like me some 300 Violins. Now if we can just get some more highlights that those of us who graduated in the 21st century can remember seeing in person, we'll be all set.

slightly unrelated, but my family has 8 tickets to the game this year that we are unfortuanetly unable to use. Yey destination wedding. Anyone interested?

My hair is still standing on end. I WANT FOOTBAW! Beat the bucks.

Just got back from my boys' first practice in pads, so the timing of this was great also.

I can't wait for the season to start. I've been on Youtube watchin old games and player tributes for months it seems.  The best part of that video hands down is Marcus Ray poppin David Boston and then when the show Boston all Dazed and Confused.  I love that hit

When making hype videos music is just as much part of the movie as the actual video, which is why I think volume 2 & volume 3 are really good, and volume 1 is just good. But I don't know if the OP is the one actually making these, but to whoever is, keep up the good work.

Just a great video.  *sigh* That's what it was always like for me growing up.  OSU fans and players trash talking and Michigan beating them.  A popular topic at the Thanksgiving dinner table every year.

What I wouldn't give to get that back.
