VIDEO: Bellarmine tops this year’s “fan anthem” charts

0 Comments

I’m usually not all that enthralled by the music videos that the fans of college hoops programs make in an effort to get their songs to become their team’s “anthem” for that season.

Whether its the corny lyrics, the poor production quality or selecting a played-out song (how many people made Black and Yellow remixes?), there always seems to the something about the videos that is just … off.

Thank you, Bellarmine University, for opening up my mind:

I love everything about this. The fact that they are playing their own music; the fact that the leader singer or rapper or whatever throws down a pretty nasty dunk; the fact that everyone involved actually seems to have a modicum of talent.

The performers aren’t the only people at Bellarmine that are talented. The hoops team can play as well. Not only are they the reigning national champs and currently sitting at No. 2 in the nation in Divison II, they lost to Louisville by eight at the Yum! Center in a scrimmage earlier this season before losing to Xavier by three at the Cintas Center.

Yes, Bellarmine, you certainly are back.
