The team singing Carmen Ohio is always the spectacle, but it's just a little more sweeter when it takes place on the road.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

Even the Cal fan was taking pictures...

What we can't do in the air we'll do on the ground.

Noticed that.
I thought I could watch this video without getting goosebumps.

Opposing fans get Script Ohio before the game, and if they stay, Carmen Ohio afterwards,  They probably leave thinking about how badass our marching band is and how cool it is that they are so involved with the football games.
They unwittingly hum Hang on Sloopy on the way back to the hotel.

I have a friend that attended Berkeley (and is one of the few die-hard UC fans) that I know from my graduate schooling in California. He attended the game and said the band was pretty good. I didn't ask about the band so I was surprised to hear that from him...although if you have to see Stanford's band ever, or the band where we went to school at UCDavis, you'd understand why he was impressed. Those two bands, while they have "spirit", are atrocious.
He also said our fans sitting close to him were pretty nice.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

From the look of the stadium, he was probably surrounded by our fans.

I can't wait until October 26th when I go to my first game and I get to sing this after we (hopefully!) beat Penn State!

Our Honor Defend!

Great tradition started by Jim Tressel!  :)

I love all the recently started traditions.  Seven Nation Army can sound VERY intimidating if it is done right, like during the 2009 USC game.  Singing Carmen Ohio after every game creates more of a connection between the players, coaches and fans.  And I don't know if this is recent but I love when a single sousaphone and a trumpeteer or drummer come to your section during the game and play Hang on Sloopy.

Goosebumps for sure

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

Goosebumps indeed.  I was there, and at the end of buddies and I all were looking at each other and we said simultaneously..."chills".  Everyone had ..tears in my eyes.  It's pretty emotional to witness Carmen in a far off location - the voices of the huge Buckeye army echoing off the mountains in the chilly East Bay air...whoa.... #goosebumps!
