Video: "The Pursuit For #8"

WT Video Specialist

This is my annual attempt at a Big Blue Madness intro vid. My previous 2 were a huge success, so hopefully this one will be the same. I am releasing it a little earlier than I usually do (the day before BBM) because there is so much negativity surrounding the football team right now. I figure maybe this will help lift the spirits of the BBN. It's hoops season folks....get hyped!!
