Tuesday 'tube: entering the arena

Not much youtube available for this week's big game — as kleph notes in this excellent RBR post, the two teams don't have a ton of memorable history together (though I'm sure that 77-6 game in '73 was somewhat memorable). In fact, the only video I could find of any of these past matchups was of the 1998 Music City Bowl, the last time the two teams met.

So instead, this being Week 1 and all, here are two entrance videos. Va. Tech's is one of the more well-known in college football: charging out onto the field as Metallica blares in the background. Very well done, very cool.

OK, so we don't have anything quite that cool in Tuscaloosa. Even so, here are a couple cool jumbotron vids that always do the job for me on gameday.

And, of course, there's this one they added in '07: the camera that follows the team from the locker room to the tunnel.

It is, of course, eerily similar to ...

Roll Tide Roll.
