The eight months that separate the end of one college football season and the start of another is a difficult time for many people.

While others are happily planning ski trips, summer vacations or spending time with family and friends, college football fans are obsessing over the number of days between then and that glorious opening day.

Cheeseburgers don't taste as good. Playing a game of cornhole without a college football game to follow it seems like you're cheating on something that means a lot to you. Watching a five-year-old matchup between Minnesota and Northwestern on the Big Ten Network starts feeling like a really great way to spend a Saturday afternoon for some reason.

All most college football fans are looking for is a few events to break up the longest stretch of the year. Whether it's recruiting news, commitments, stories about one of the players on their team running an impossibly fast 40-time or the release of EA's NCAA football game, all of it equates to a brief oasis in the long stretch of desert we call the offseason.

Ohio State fans just reached an oasis.

For reasons unknown, Nike has produced an incredible four-and-a-half minute promo video for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The video is set to The Heavy's "How You Like Me Now" and features clips from a number of past Buckeyes teams, including last year's undefeated squad.

You can watch the video in its entirety here:

Pretty awesome, right? If you have the urge to bust through a wall like some freak combination of The Incredible Hulk and the Kool-Aid Man, you're not alone. Also, if seeing Mickey Mouse toss a pass to Woody Hayes (at the 1:08 mark) doesn't bring a smile to your face, then I'd love to see that black cave in your chest where your heart is supposed to be.

We're only 115 days away from the college football season. Stay strong, friends. We're almost there.
