Here's the Ohio State Football Tecmo Bowl Hype Video You Didn't Know You Needed

By 11W Staff on August 30, 2014 at 11:04a

How do you make an Ohio State hype video better? Add some Tecmo Bowl, of course.

This three-plus minute reel of glory was created by Eleven Warriors member Travis Rodgers and it may just be the best video you see today.

I just poured one out for all of my former Tecmo homies :-(  Though since they're not real, i poured into a clean bowl on the floor so as to not waste any for Game Day.

We don't give a Da*n for the whole state of *ichigan cause we're from OHIO!

I used to sneak a Sega Game Gear in my backpack and tear up some Tecmo during class!

No idea how hard that is to make, did this take a long time to put together? Or was it pretty simple?

Great job and what a heart for the buckeyes you have Travis. Thank you for all your time and effort. Here's hoping it goes viral and brings you a lot of success. Man what talented people we have on elevenwarriors.  Best site on the internet.

I’m impressed.  I don’t remember Tecmo Bowl being that… um… sophisticated, of course I could be miss remembering.

That was also highly nostalgic.

No the best video I see today will be highlight reels of the distributor tossing his first 5 TDs with no turnovers

Barrett's highlights will be more in the neighborhood of a feature film length. They'll sell bootleg copies of it on the corners and men and women alike will weep openly.

Hahaha, awesome. Slow start, but ends with a bang.

The only thing that video was missing was a runner zig-zagging up and down the field. Everyone knows you couldn't score a TD in Tecmo Super Bowl by running in a straight line. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

I guess Bo Jackson could never be tackled in Tecmo. Maybe could put a cameo in for him.

Great job, except that TBDBITL does NOT have flutes. Otherwise, great job.


Well done, well done - it would be great to watch this again before The Game this year for sure.

This is awesome, nice job getting the band in there, even if flutes aren't totally accurate.  Still really enjoyed it, thanks for doing the work for us to see.
