"DePauw's allotment of DVDs was 250, and they're essentially all spoken for," says Ken Owen, executive director of media relations at DePauw and 1982 graduate of the University, who oversees the DVD project and authors the disc. "However, our colleagues at Wabash have offered to provide us with some of their product once we run out and, of course, assuming they, too, haven't sold out. The bottom line is that this is a hot seller and may not be available for very long."
The 2007 disc is the seventh Monon platter DePauw and Wabash have collaborated on. Wabash's Jim Amidon again created the artwork for the disc jacket and the DVD itself. Photos by Amidon and DePauw's Matt Bowen are featured on the packaging (the front cover of the DVD is seen in the top photo) and are seen in a photo gallery on the disc, as well as on the menus, which Bowen created.
The DVD has more than four hours of content, including every play of the 2007 game as televised by HDNet, 69 "Monon Memories" of past battles in the series that have been created to date, photo galleries featuring both this year's game and vintage images from the past (with more than 340 images in total), halftime spots from the two colleges, and the recently updated music video for the Ballad of the Monon Bell. [Download Video: "Ballad of the Monon Bell - 2007 Version" - 10,419kb] [Download Audio: "Ballad of the Monon Bell - Stereo" - 2514kb] The game is presented on the DVD in anamorphic widescreen/16x9.
The first six Monon Bell DVDs -- covering the games from 2001 through 2006 -- can still be purchased for a special price of $10 (supplies of the 2002 game are very limited).
