If you’ve seen a college football game in Columbus, you’ve seen this before — but perhaps not from this angle. The Ohio State University Marching Band takes the field the same way — call Ramp Entrance — for each home game. The percussion section always goes first, to a silent count; when the drummers start their cadence, the rest of the band follows, in precise lines down the ramp and on to the field.
This one, however, is different, in that it was the biggest game in the history of Ohio Stadium, when No. 1 Ohio State hosted No. 2 Michigan in 2006. The intensity? I’m guessing it was a bit higher than normal, just like everything else that day.
Yes. I was there.
I have a feeling I’m going to be posting lots of these in the next few weeks. Peaking too soon? Please…
