These hype videos for Michigan, MSU games this weekend are glorious

Go Blue
The University of Michigan

Maybe do some lunges today, or jog around the block or something.

Just get the blood flowing a little, in between Thanksgiving's feasting and Saturday's football marathon of snacking and sitting and watching Michigan and Michigan State wrap up the regular season with  big, emotional, must-watch games. 

All true college football fans in the state will clear a good 7 hours or so to keep their butts on the couch this Saturday, as Michigan goes up against a little team called Ohio State at the Big House at noon. And MSU is just one win away from the Big Ten title game, with only Penn State still standing in the way. 

Now we all know these coaches have a secret bet to see who can give the most robotic, least emotionally-gratifying press conferences of all time (although Harbuagh made it up to the Michigan press corps a little bit this week by smashing a buckeye on Bo's grave, because that is awesome.)  

So maybe that's why fans pour all that built-up energy into hype videos. Here's a few of our faves. 

1) The sorry-not-sorry video about MSU breaking both Michigan and Ohio State's hearts, with a little musical help from Adele.  


2) When Michigan athletics asked all the Ohio-bred Wolverines about the rivalry: 


3) If you want some (painful) highlights from past Michigan vs. OSU match ups: 


4) And if you just want to see Harbaugh talk about the Lion King again: 


You feel that? That pit in your stomach? The metallic taste of adrenaline? That's college football at its most rivalry-est, bombastic, history-rich best. And it's a beautiful thing.
