When you dominate the Orange Bowl...

As you might recall, Dana Holgorsen and the boys at West Virginia hung 70 on Clemson in the Orange Bowl in January. 

When you dominate the Orange Bowl you most definitely make some videos to highlight that occurrence. 

One of the guys at West Virginia was nice enough to send this one to us...it's a highlight package of their 2011 season with a couple of minutes at the end showing a bunch of the highlights from the Orange Bowl victory. This one was clearly designed to impress high school athletes...and we think it works.

Recruiting video - Wheaton College

Wheaton - For Christ and His Kingdom

For those not fully familiar, Wheaton is a very successful D-III program just west of Chicago. Below is a video presenting what the football program is all about. 

This is a high quality video which in our opinion is a great asset for the college.

North Carolina sending out a message

UNC Football's video staff has put out a nice string of videos under the "Blue Dawn" title over the past few weeks. Most of the videos focus on conditioning and give glimpses into the new coaching staff. All are well produced and we hear are being enjoyed by the Tar Heel fan base. 

Then today's came out. The first two minutes follow the same script, conditioning drills featuring the players with shots of the coaches and staff mixed in. Well done...and then came the fun. Shortly after the 2 minute mark, they inserted something that might just get their opponents a little riled up. Well played Coach Fedora, well played indeed.

D-III Video: "Sometimes you're the wall, today you're the hammer"

Yesterday we mentioned the value of having some video to support your program...to exicte the kids and the recruits, to energize the fan base and the donors, etc...

Since then, several good quality videos have been sent to us (keep them coming). 

We'll be rolling them out over the next few days...and beyond.

This video comes from D-III Linfield College. The whole thing is good; but right at the end you get the money quote. Enjoy!

Fast people come from the South

CBSsports.com released some interesting information earlier today combining the 40 yard dash times of everyone that participated in the event at the NFL Combine, and then averaged it out and sorted it based on where the player was born to determine which state is the fastest. We noted that other than a couple of speedsters from Michigan all of the other top 5 states for producing fast players are south of the Mason-Dixon line. 

The in depth research that they put into the article is equally as impressive. For example, the speed rich Florida area got broken down into three counties for a closer look; Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade. The entire state of Florida ran a 4.79 average, but when it came down to the three counties, Palm Beach County came out on top with a 4.69 40 yard average time, while Broward County clocked in at 4.73 and Miami-Dade topped out at 4.84 average.

Take a look at the chart below for the full results. A couple things to keep in mind; the list only includes states that had more than two players participating, and the data for the skills positions does not include quarterbacks (or offensive or defensive lineman). 

CBSsports.com has also made a chart that is easily sortable to take a look at as well.
