    It doesn't matter if you hate Ohio State's sports teams: you will not hate this.
    This is hands-down the best marching band choreography that I've ever seen.

    They go to a giant Superman to a flying Harry Potter and then to the T. rex from Jurassic Park

    I still love them playing the titanic at the 2006 BCSNC.

    This level of skill is a lost art. Back when they had the halftime shows on TV, it was more important to put on a show, and the bands were as competitive as the football teams. I think it also made for bigger repertoires.

    Two things: I have thought for years that one thing our band needs to do is ditch 90% of the woodwinds and load up on brass. In marching bands, VOLUME, VOLUME, and VOLUME is what impresses. Sorry to all the clarinetists out there.

    Second, is there any business or service on the planet as unreliable and yet successful as Youtube. CONSTANT rebuffering

    That was good, but it really does not compare with the band smackdown done by the bands at the Yale/Harvard game. They come with complete stories that range from the ridiculous to the hysterical. I remember Yale forming a "cleaver" to chop out an eye (that bleeds out) as part of a satirical "Beaver Cleaver" episode.

    After the Air Force played with precision, the Yale band feigned precision and bumped into each other but ended up playing on the ground in a perfect fighter formation. Pretty amazing.
