Arizona posts awesome 'Gladiator' hype video

With the assistance of some costumes, highlights and archived footage from a 2000 cinematic classic, Arizona has raised the bar for college football hype videos in 2016.

The Wildcats combined with "Gladiator" to get their fans ready for their Sept. 3 opener against BYU.

The highlight is undeniably Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, wearing a very impressive replica of Russell Crowe's Maximus' armor, belting out the iconic "Are you not entertained?" line as the camera pans out to the vast desert behind him. While the whole video is great, the folks at Arizona were kind enough to deliver just that part.

This is the latest in the long line of awesome Arizona hype videos that included parodies of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and James Bond, which can be enjoyed below.
