I may be biased but I thought ours was the best. It did a pretty good job capturing the energy in the stadium on gameday.

I didn't think Bama's was all that great. Liked MSU, Ole Miss...and Arky was decent.

Default Re: SEC Network "Take It All In" South Carolina promo video...

Here's how I think the videos should be viewed - does each video get the fans/alumni of that school excited and passionate about their own school so they want to see their team on the SEC Network?

There was a debate on here between Eric and Gamecock fans. Others have tried to rate the videos of other schools. Obviously, there is bias. Rocky Top doesn't mean as much to us. However, does it get UT fans excited? Same for Bama, Auburn, UGA, etc.

If each video serves the fan base of that school and gets them excited, then the video worked. If the fans of that school think it's lacking or didn't focus on what it should, then the videos could have been better.

The videos can also be looked at another way - to get non SEC fans or just college football fans excited about the SEC Network. Did they do the job for other college football fans?

Default Re: SEC Network "Take It All In" South Carolina promo video...

My personal rankings (not including South Carolina)

1) Auburn- The car rolling by the Toomer's Corner the next morning following an Auburn victory realizing the tradition will never be the same anymore makes it great video.

2) Mississippi State- Tradition is big in the SEC, and the left field lounge at Dooley Field is the best baseball tradition in the country, and helped turned it into the toughest place to in the SEC on conference weekends

3) Texas A&M- They could have went with Midnight Yell, and the other well known traditions, but I'm glad they did not for the commercial. The Reville tradition is big to Aggies, and being the cadet to take care of her is a big honor on that campus.

4) Arkansas- The Hog Call is the most recognizable and weirdest tradition in college football, but that is what makes it awesome. They started the ad perfect, having the guy who raises the live razorbacks teaching you the hog call was pure genius by the marketing department.

5) Alabama- The voiceover of the Bear talking in his deep southern accent is just chilling, and haunting at the same time. The Bear is Alabama football, and the passion of the state over Alabama football is exemplified by the Bear.

6) Vandy- Memorial gymnasium is what Vanderbilt known for, the unique setup of the arena, and the placement of the benches make it the toughest place to coach in the SEC from that standpoint. That describes Vandy perfectly and their fit in the SEC.

7) LSU- Mike the Tiger is the only live mascot to actually live on campus. That was the reason it was showcased, but could have done more the tailgating scene at LSU.

8) Ole Miss- The Grove, the most beautiful spot in America to tailgate for a football game, was the obvious choice for the Ole Miss spot, but a 30 second ad is not enough showcase the Grove.

9) Georgia- The Hershel footage is Georgia at its finest, but I love the Larry Munson radio call. He makes the commercial, a legend on the mic, is what most people think of when they hear most about UGA football.

10 Kentucky- The opening of Midnight Madness for them this past year, shows the passion of the UK fan base, and it was done perfectly. The only thing it was so obvious, and the rest of above it were produced better.

11) Missouri- The start was great, after that it was the MIZ-ZOU chant, again cool tradition just the others were produced better.

12) Florida- The Gator Chomp...of all the traditions, They would have scored higher if they focused on Mr. Two Bits or the naming of the Swamp.

13) Tennessee- I get the inclusion of Rocky Top, the process of watching a mother sing it to her son, made me feel I was a peeping Tom in the closet of the room


Improvements to each AD-

Auburn- improve the quality of the picture.
Mississippi St- focus on the growth of the left field lounge
Arkansas- Cut from the guy teaching you, to a actually stadium doing it, its weird when its a small group doing it, but as a stadium its pretty cool
Tennessee- have the woman voiceover show the Vol Navy, then to the stadium singing
Florida- show Mr. Two Bits

Why are you basing it on tradition? Is that the criteria on what you and some other fans decided? I base it on (in the moment now) Carolinas last 5 years or so...

Fair point. Def couldn't play that at a gameday atmosphere.

I think the point of the commercials though are to stir emotions and get fanbases motivated to call their cable company or Direct TV and bug the hell out of them for the channel.

I think for a TN fan, it did that. Could it have been more hype? For sure.

Didn't see this post yet before I just posted, pretty much this in a nutshell.

I also agree that if I hadn't had a kid in the past 2 years then that video of TN's wouldn't probably strike me the same way it does now.

Anyway who cares, I can't wait for SEC FOOTBALL!!!

I have actually changed my mind after reading one of the comments:


Tennessee’s ad is perfect. One, because they’re a bunch of babies and, two, most UT fans have about as many teeth as the kid in the ad.


Yep, it's perfect. :D
