The B1G channels Game of Thrones

The Big Ten Conference is showing a video they produced before each home opener this season, which has a “sea to shining sea” theme, promoting the recent acquisition of Maryland & Rutgers.
A youtube user, Tom McGrath, took the B1G’s video, and set it to the opening music to “Game of Thrones“. In fact, the video does seem to borrow/steal from the opening sequence of the popular cable show. I found the video, complete with updated soundtrack, amusing. The lone, pond-hockey player skating in Minnesota was a nice touch.

Something tells me that Mr McGrath’s version is getting more views than the official B1G version.
