Another Great Big Ten Network Commercial

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

At the beginning of the Football season, I linked to a wonderful Big Ten Network commercial that featured all of the coaches giving recruiting speeches on camera. Well the channel has come out with another spot for Basketball season, and while it's not as hilarious as Joe Paterno yelling at you to come to Penn State, it still gets the message across....

I still believe that less is more when it comes to spots like these and the BTN definitely has that down. Again, it would have been better if they got Tubby Smith to yell into the camera like Joe Pa, but it's enjoyable none-the-less.

I don't know about Tubby. I think seeing Bo Ryan scream into the camera with his constantly flared nostrils would be more terrifying.

I couldn't name six coaches in college basketball, so you know more than I do.

Too bad watching Big Eleven basketball makes the eyes bleed.

The BTN basketball commercial doesn't hold a candle to the football version, especially since there was only enough money in the budget for one light.

And the craziest basketball coach in the Big Ten is... Thad Matta! Look at how excited he is over "those hot dog-- little hot dog things."
