On our annual band/team practice in 2013 one of us who I would say is about 5'9 175 let Chris Carter tackle him at full speed without any pads, helmet or something soft to land on. If you remember, Chris Carter was about 6'2 320. It was pretty funny (he wasn't hurt) so I'm assuming this guy is fine too. Allowing myself to get hit by Anthony Schlegel on the other hand....(shudders violently)
You should watch the video of this with sound, you can hear just how incredible Noah Brown's crack-back block was. Watch for him out wide at the top for the start of the play
Been saying look for James Clark to fill this role if he's healthy/on the team for forever, don't sleep on him! He's really good at going in a straight line, really fast, just like Devin
I don't know where they got this from, but this is something we have been doing in S-Row (part of the band) for at least the last decade if not longer. It makes me laugh to see it on TV all the time now
A giant inappropriate snow sculpture? Better fire Jon Waters!
Thank you for the kind words. It was a rough year, and it was great to help the team go out on top!
You're the best! Just post whenever the sounds of the game is up, a bunch of us in the band wanted to see it!
I wish it was more than just the players, theres a lot of band and cheerleader parents that would like to go as well, and personally my Dad couldn't make the sugar bowl (cost reasons) and is only going to the national championship because I emptied my bank account to help pay for his airfare (he was able to scrounge a ticket up cheaply somehow). This is my last game and I couldn't imagine him not being there. Wish someone would go to bat for us like Urban did!
Nick Polak is an idiot. Perfect example of why you shouldn't make blind, arrogant online comments without doing your research. And he's their recruiting guy at BSD? Ouch. So glad we have had a long line of great recruiting guys here from Alex to Birm #ThankYouBasedGod
"Clearly, the solution here is to fire Jon Waters" --OSU Board of Trustees
What's interesting is that there weren't any of these university features on the band last year….only outside media outlets filmed us. I get the positive press thing but man this show was Waters' brainchild and they don't even mention him
This isn't something to joke around about with your friends. It is one of many closely guarded secrets that should never have found its way into the public. You don't understand what you are doing/saying, just like everyone else not involved with this. The fact that you are apparently proud of yourself for "having fun with this" is sickening. You will never understand, and I will not try to explain it to you
Nothing throughout this entire ordeal has hurt me as much as seeing this did. You are the worst kind of person, and the reason that secrets are secrets in the first place
She stopped in to see her favorite recruit, James Dane
Deano got some of it correct, there are also other pairs of bandsmen who run through the end zone with other various mascots, and sometimes with nothing at all. I can't really explain it more than that, its just a tradition we have, and we always do it after we score during the fight song that is subsequently played
The unnamed away trips are MSU and PSU
Adam Breneman was never committed to us. We did pursue him hard though.
That old Navy program is on display in the band center inside the stadium. It's pretty cool looking in person
That wasn't the first time it was played, the song debuted in 2011. Perhaps it was the first time it made it on TV?
As someone who has never parked out of place in his entire (still ongoing) experience here, I've still received about 10 tickets from OSU (maybe 2 before they sold the rights to CampusParc) and I can say with near certainty that CampusParc was at fault here. They employ idiots who are using brand new license plate scanning technology that they don't know how to use or haven't worked the bugs out of yet. I have never paid a ticket I have received because it was a pretty simple manner to argue them with facts and evidence. I think Jeff either WAS parked illegally (I don't care if you're a player or not, if you were told to still get a pass he should have gotten one) or he is unaware of the appeal process, because as I mentioned it is quite easy to appeal these tickets. If you park incorrectly on public roads however, or a business that employs shamrock towing (I've heard the stories) good luck getting out of that one!
The other great thing about CampusParc being so annoying is you can just not pay the ticket. Unlike how it used to be, OSU can't put an academic hold on your account for not paying your tickets and it isn't the city so they can't force you to pay when you re-up on registration or your license. All that would really happen is your credit score going down? I'm not sure. But I know of plenty of people who just don't pay them because there's nothing they can really do to you
