Hype videos are as much a part of the offseason for a college football fan as media days or training camp analysis. It's a time of year where every team seems to have some level of optimism, and the talented multimedia crews in athletic departments string together scenes of training camp, successes of the past and impassioned coach speeches into a video to get fans eager for live action.
The real thing is imminent. College football officially got underway on Saturday with North Dakota State and Montana, and the first FBS games of the season await on Thursday.
Just in case you need a little bit of a nudge to get your excitement level up for the 2015 season, these should do the trick. Even if you don't need that nudge, enjoy anyway. Here are some of the best hype videos we have seen in the lead-up to the season.
