Ridiculous, I know, but kind of awesome. Now you get the voice of the fan, with all its foibles and squeaks and "ums".
To answer some burning questions -
The lighting is not excessive, I'm just not tan right now. Michigan will do that to you.
William Buford's name is mispronounced. Sorry. I only did, oh, 35 takes to get a finished product and I would love to show those all to you, but almost every single one ends with me cussing.
The featured celebratory cigar is an Arturo Fuente with a medium ring gauge. It's an easy smoke, but tasty, just like every other AF.

This channel will be way more awesome when we start to get guest appearances from people other than me. This channel will also be 100x more awesome during football season, when I can bring the thing into stadiums and interview cheerleaders.
Furthermore, I'm assuming you all might have some sweet videos of your own B1G football or non-football experiences. Send those vids onto me, we'll feature them on the OTE channel.
Give me some ideas for what y'all want to see while OTE has a video camera and a YouTube channel. I thought of going to all the B1G stadiums this year, scalping tickets, getting some good ol' home town video at each game...As for Michigan State v. OSU, hell of a game. The big boys (Nix, Green, Payne, Sullinger, Ravanel) really, frankly, just attacked each other..and the hoop. Brandon Wood looked like the player Spartan fans know he can be, while William Buford looked like the scorer we all fear. What's in store for the tourney? I fear the Spartans above all other teams, what with the depth, senior leadership, and the ability to outrebound anyone.
And Michigan? Sharing a Big Ten title in basketball? The apocalypse of 2012 must be near, now that the Detroit Lions made the playoffs and the Wolverines are co-Big Ten Champs. John Beilein deserves a Coach of the Decade award for building really successful teams out of the Novak's and Pittsnoggles and Gansey's of the world.

I like this trend of referring to Ohio State as "Ohio". It's those kind of irritating and flippant remarks that show me The Rivalry might be making its way back to legitimacy.
We will in fact be debuting our "Top B1G College Town" bracket this week...at some point. You have to think Madison is the leader in the clubhouse, what with all the bars, the friendly folk, the nutso stadium, the students who party and sleep on the iced-over lake during the winter...
