On the march

To Buckeyes, The Ohio State University Marching Band has always been The Best Damn Band in the Land. But recently, a much wider audience got to see how amazing those half-time performances can be. TBDBITL�s video game-themed show was filmed by an alumnus and went viral, garnering more than 14 million views on YouTube.
