WATCH: Ohio State marching band practices Script Ohio to prep for football season

·1 min read

It’s a time-honored tradition. Script Ohio. There are many — even outside the program — that believe it’s the best tradition in college football and it’s hard not to get chills watching it performed. Even ESPN listed it as the best tradition in the game, and that’s with an unbiased eye toward these sort of things (we think).

But TBDBITL, or the Ohio State marching band, doesn’t just roll out of bed with instruments in hand and perfect the marching of the word O-H-I-O across the field. Much like the football team, it takes practice, blood, sweat, and tears to get it right.

So, just like the football team is practicing to become the best that it can, so too is the marching band. It’s a pretty intense process. Watch below as the OSU marching band goes performs Script Ohio in one of its practices in preparation for doing it for the very first time this season, thanks to the official Twitter account of TBDBITL.
