As a former member of TBDBITL, I can say the tradition of playing with the football is awesome. I still remember Antoine Winfield carrying my quads while marching Script Ohio. I wish camera phones and digital cameras were around back then so I could have a pic of the event.
The tenor section in the OSUMB is currently playing six drums or sextets.
2 = duos
3 = trios
4 = quads
5 = quints
6 = sextets
Where did you get that version of OSUMB drum cadences used for the video? They're shorter than normal and a few parts have been left out.
