    This is really impressive! Hats off to THE OSU band.

    As a Buckeye, I am proud — and awed — by their shows! Both of our kids were in marching band in High School and I know how hard they practiced. I can only imagine how the BDBITL prepares!

      They watch videos of the Wisconsin Marching Band to see how it’s done.

    Well the Michigan band played “Hail to the Victors” to celebrate. Oh, they do that every time they score, sorry.

      They do that every time they don’t score. The world’s most overrated fight song played in the world’s most overrated stadium.

        Very true, only one worth hearing is the Aggie War Hymn. Gig’em.

    So, were the generic flags because they did not want to represent the Confederate flag?

    i will say that Abe played a much tougher schedule (OOC and in conference) than Urbie. :)

    It’s remarkable that the OSU band- any band for that matter- would take on the task of remembering the Civil War and Gettysburg Address at a half-time show. Despite my loyalty to another Big-10 school, OSU deserves a pat on the back and well done for this great program! The most intriguing section of all was the last formation of “Blue” and “Gray” reuniting under one flag- the stars & stripes, which may have gone over the head of some viewers but I believed it to be a poignant statement and interesting that it should be included as the finale. Could such a show have been performed at Old Miss?

    Well done.

    Watching the show, I was thinking: with 240 members, the band is about the equivalent of three 1861-era companies…gives you an idea how much space a double or triple line would occupy.

    Best,
