TBDBITL Report: Indiana, Canned Music, and A Special Tradition

The bad weather and a not highly rated opponent may have kept many people away from Ohio Stadium on Saturday but it takes a lot more than that to keep the Ohio State University Marching Band from putting on a great show. Icy roads may have resulted in emptier than normal stands during pregame but […]

Ohio State Downs VCU 96-86

After a heart breaking loss to 24th ranked Georgia earlier in the week, the Ohio State women’s basketball team sought to return to .500 on the season as they hosted VCU today.

I’m sorry for the lack of a TBDBITL update last week but I was traveling in New Zealand for a week and Sauron apparently did not want me to have a good internet connection to upload the article. This week the TBDBITL Report is back with a special, longer version to cover everything that happened […]

TBDBITL Report: It Came From Outer Space

The day after Halloween, night game in Ohio Stadium, and two weeks to prepare a show is a recipe for something special from the Ohio State University Marching Band and like always, the band made sure not to disappoint. Halloween themed shows are very common for college marching bands and numerous stadiums around the country […]

TBDBITL Report: A Trip to Cleveland

The Ohio State football team pulled off a narrow victory over Penn State last week and playing in front of a hostile PSU crowd most likely played a role in the team struggling at times. In such a harsh road environment, the team needed any bit of support they could get from the Buckeye faithful. […]

TBDBITL Report: The OSUMB Doesn’t Hide in the Dark

While the Ohio State football team was idle last weekend, Ohio Stadium was not empty on Saturday. Instead, sounds of brass and percussion reverberated in the stadium as the Ohio State University Marching Band hosted the Buckeye Invitational, an annual high school marching band festival. This year’s Invitational featured performances from 42 high school bands […]

TBDBITL Report: Charity Performance and Remembering Neutron Man

When the Ohio State football team headed to Maryland last Saturday, the marching band did not accompany them. While some people online had speculated that this was possibly due to the firing of former director Jonathan Waters and the allegations about the marching band culture made in the Glaros Report, that was not the case.

For the second time this season, Ohio State performed under the lights in Ohio Stadium and just like the football team’s offense, the marching band came out firing with a show dedicated to the music from The Wizard of Oz.

On Friday former Ohio State University Marching Band director Jonathan Waters announced that he was filing a lawsuit against the university.

TBDBITL Report: Regulars, Alternates, and Challenges, Oh My

Like the football team, the Ohio State University Marching Band enjoyed a weekend off last week. Even though they didn’t have a performance last week, the band hasn’t been goofing off as they’ve been hard at work last week and this week preparing this weekend’s show. After hinting at the show’s theme last week, I […]

TBDBITL Report: Kent State Recap – Jon Waters Returns

‘Jon Waters Returns’, I’ve been hoping to write those words in the title of an article for almost two months. While Waters did return to Ohio Stadium last weekend, it wasn’t as director of the Ohio State University Marching Band; I still hope to write those three words again at some point for that reason.
