Ohio State Football's Video Team is Crushing It

By Jason Priestas on May 15, 2013 at 6:25a

10 days ago, we were treated to a weapons-grade Ohio State hype video that Russell Hoeflich and Mark Smith, members of the athletic department's Video Services team, put together for a meeting with Nike on the west coast. Today, we're treated to a sequel prequel of sorts.

Unlike the first video, which found its way to YouTube before getting pulled (but not before it had been cloned and uploaded by other fans), the second video is hosted on the mothership and is, unfortunately, not embeddable.

Carrying a description of "Lockerroom video from the 12-0 Ohio State football team," this new video features highlights, behind the scenes speeches from the bowels of Spartan Stadium and Camp Randall, and a production level that would indicate Hoeflich and Smith's involvement ahem... we're being told is the mark of David Trichel.

At one point, Urban Meyer implores his troops: "There's only one way to do it. We start right of the bat and you don't miss, you don't graze them, you don't duck. You hit them right between the eyes. Earn your respect. At some point, it's going to happen and it starts right now. EARN YOUR RESPECT."

Wait, you're still here?

The 4-6 seconds quote should be on t-shirts this fall.

If you watch either of these videos and feel nothing ... don't get pumped up for football season ... I don't want to talk to you.
Now excuse me while I go knock down my cube walls.

Brilliant. The only image that could have made this any cooler is Harry Potter on a broom.

Those two minutes and eight seconds of video are going to cost homes and offices millions in damages today. Sorry about the kitchen counter dear!

"Lets beat the shit out of Michigan".... Urban. Frank. Meyer.

This video was the intro before the uniform unveil for The Game.  Playing it through concert-grade speakers and subwoofers was unreal.  I've had it on my desktop since then and still got chills watching it this morning.

Ummmm the video had shots from The Game this year, in those unis... so that's not possible.
I was there in the front row, it wasn't the intro for it. Maybe a few clips from earlier in the year, but not that video.

Ah touché. This was used during a dinner (I believe for the seniors) the first week of December. My apologies. I do have the video I was referring to somewhere.. I'll try to locate it and post a link tomorrow. Never can have too many videos right?
EDIT: I was too impatient and uploaded the video tonight. Enjoy.

Awesome video.  I want to open the season with a 70-3 drubbing of Buffalo just to set the tone.  No more playing down to the opponent.

Yeti's have feelings too.

12 and OMG! The fury, the conviction, the juice. If you get an offer to play for the Buckeyes and don't accept on the spot, man I just don't get you.

That gave me goose bumps I can't wait for the season to start.

Pretty freakin' sweet....... I liked the first one better though. That one was amazing.

I love Marotti at the end "This game is about toughness, and tougher people win!"

Damn. Now I have to work my adrenaline off on the bag for the next 30 min.

"Lets take over this stadium" was a nice touch too. Urban Meyer basically gives 0 fucks about hostile environments.

Meh, not that great!  If the other video was a 10 (it was) this was a 5!

The only reason why a Coombs speech wasn't included was because he killed the camera and ripped the film out while it was still running. Great job whomever's brain child this was. Now, can august come soon enough?

Think our boys aren't motivated?  Can't wait til we how our schedule is weak and we can't hang with the SEC. The chase begins.
