There's a saying that goes "less is more," and I don't think the saying could be any more appropriate for Eastern Michigan University's new poster for their upcoming football season. 
The poster features football players Jason Beck, Jerry Harris, Shaq Vann, and Brogan Roback and boy do these guys look pretty ~excited~ to be playing some football. We can only describe our reaction to seeing this poster in the following set of GIFs.


It all kind of reminds us of the classic When Harry Met Sally scene...

The photo of the football players make it to the top of a Reddit page where commenters laughed and applauded the guys for giving it 100% during the photo shoot, despite the fact that they look like, well, you know how they look.

Internet commenters pointed out that the school's water tower was once described as the "World's Most Phallic Building," so there's that, too. Keep it up, EMU!
