Ohio State Really Is “Best Damn Band”

Ohio State has won twenty straight football games under second-year head football coach Urban Meyer – a perfect 12-0 mark in 2012 and an 8-0 record so far in 2013. Last year Meyer’s Buckeyes were ineligible for postseason play due to a 2011 NCAA investigation which uncovered a host of…

Ohio State has won twenty straight football games under second-year head football coach Urban Meyer – a perfect 12-0 mark in 2012 and an 8-0 record so far in 2013. Last year Meyer’s Buckeyes were ineligible for postseason play due to a 2011 NCAA investigation which uncovered a host of violations committed under former head coach Jim Tressel.

This year? They’re among the favorites to play for the national championship …

Of course nobody’s talking about Ohio State’s football team this week … they’re talking about the school’s marching band, which put on a mind-blowing show at halftime of the Buckeyes’ 63-14 evisceration of Penn State last weekend.

Back in my day, marching bands didn’t get respect. Which was great for me since I like to fight.

This was absolutely fantastic. In fairness you should have shown Penn State Blue Band, too. Those students spent many hours practicing to put performances on.and it is a shame that they are not shown on TV during the halftime. Why in the world should we have to listen and watch those egostical football experts explain the game when we’ve already watched it? Those guys love to look at themselves and hear their voices and we sick of them especially when we know our wonderful students are putting on great shows.

Good for you and other news outlets for reporting this story. I saw some of the OSU Band members on the Today show this morning and it was great. The technology behind the performances is fascinating. Thanks again.

Back in my day of waiting football training table for Woody and Bo, the OSUMB had a baton that they used when playing from the sidelines. It was a dried bull penis, and I guess they got away with it because the OSUMB was all-male at the time. The smallest band member would jump on the shoulders of the biggest band member and wave the baton around at every OSU touchdown.

The “Script Ohio” still gives me a tingle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ag1E-H9IzYc

So good it almost makes up for all the drunk-ass groups of Buckeye fans who murder “Hang On Sloopy” at karaoke shows. Almost. Still doesn’t make up for the way they drive, though.

Once again, Fits is breaking news…right after the Today show and Channel 4 local news in Charleston aired it.
