WVU put out a video today (viewable here) about the making of their 2014 football poster. I'm only a West Virginia fan as far as it will ingratiate me with my apartment's maintenance man, but I think the Mountaineers hit this one out of the park.

Here's the finished product:

CLARK KENT TO SUPERMAN

A little Clark Kent-to-Superman nod, but wouldn't they want their football uniform to play the role of Superman's costume? Just a thought from the local internet man.

I get they are trying to show that under the jersey its the mountaineer uniform that the mascot wears, but anyone else thinks it looks weird?

I was not sure if something else should be popping out of that jersey ...

Great reference!

They're going to have problems with overheating and dehydration if they're wearing leather jackets underneath their pads.

I know it's supposed to be leather fringe, but it makes me think of tassels.

Have to keep water from running into your buckskins somehow.

Where's the raccoon tail hanging out of the back of the helmet?

I bet the Mountaineer would know how to handle chipmunks in the chimney.

Great poster, until you see who they've got at the top of schedule. There'll be a real ugly L right next to that Alabama logo.

That does look fresh.

As the husband of a rabid Mountaineer fan, I've got to say that this is pretty great. No really, I've got to say that.

Kidding aside, this is really great artwork. Well done, WVU.

Certainly better than anything Florida is doing.

They have a pretty tough schedule, especially with those booby tassels.
