I'm just a graduate student at ND with no interest in ND sports, but I feel stained by this.

The comments on EDSBS for this video are great - no disabling comments there.

Perhaps the best comment?

The video could only have been better if it had an animated Touchdown Jesus jumped [sic] out of the real Touchdown Jesus and start “getting funky” like the rest of the white folk in the video.

It makes complete sense when you consider that all decision for The University Of Notre Dame are made by 75 year old white men completely out-of-touch with modern American culture and common sense.

this video will make the alumni think that joining the big ten was the year's best decision.

that I can't get the friggin' song out of my head?  I watched the video in abject horror and yet the chorus has not left my brain since.  Is Freekbass in fact an evil genius, posing as a sad version of a white, untalented, Bootsy Collins??

That was rough on the stomach.  I am going to post that for my ND friends before the game this year, and every year there after.  Also, that was a fake guitar solo considering that guy is playing a bass, and a bass doesn't make that noise.

What's up with rapping John Lennon? That guy needs a good beat down.

If UM ever tries to do something like this, we must harness the power of the MGoblogosphere in order to ban it from all existence.

"Rawk music" doesn't seem so bad compared to whatever kind of "music" this song is purported to be.  Imagine the negative feedback around Ann Arbor, especially from the "down in front" crowd, if this had been "We are Wolverines."

As I mentioned above, I'm a grad student at ND, and I still feel sick about this. I told my buddy (who teaches with me) that I would rather go through the Colorado Hail Mary than have UM put out some crap like this. He is convinced that there is something else going on - intelligent people couldn't possibly allow this to happen (or even worse, pay for this). Maybe it's a plot to get rejected by the Big Ten, or a senior prank by one of the dorms. He gets his Ph.D. at the end of the semester and is watching its value plummet.

We've emailed our class demanding an explanation for this shit.

We also have started to use "Freekbass" as a verb, as in:

"That student completely freekbassed that question - did they read anything?"

"I felt ill and freekbassed all over the floor"

"Did Matt Millen freekbass the draft again?"

I made it through 39 seconds.  With the exception of Ghost of Bo I'll bet I dragged the MGoBoard "Average Seconds Endured" up a couple notches, thanks to my iron stomach.

They call this a "hype" video?  I can't decide whether they were trying to channel the Big 'n Rich "Comin' to Your City" video from College Game Day or this was an original effort. Either way, its a perfect recruiting video for ND's opponents.

I made the mistake of leaving this page up after being unable to force myself to watch more than 30 seconds. When I came back, my boyfriend was cackling like a maniac and babbling to himself. The poor soul had watched the whole thing.
