Right before the Orange would take the court the crowd would become silent, not for the National Anthem, not for a crazy fan getting ejected, but for an video intro montage made by Syracuse University Students. That same video on June 7th will have a chance to be named the best college athletics – promotion or marketing campaign video in the nation.
The other schools competing:
Mountain West Conference – The Future of College Athletics is Here! (Campaign), Mountain West Conference
Knightmare, University of Central Florida Athletic Association
What It Takes, University of Miami
SIU Football Introduction – Ladies and Gentlemen, Southern Illinois University
Timeless, University of Michigan
Until June 7th students will just have to wait and see, to hope that their video is named number one.
