With a rivalry like “The Game” between Ohio State and Michigan, it really lives on throughout the entire year, and across different sports and disciplines. Apparently, that extends to each program’s bands.
You see, Michigan’s band looks like it’s trying to get into the act and do some similar halftime shows like the literal world famous Ohio State marching band, more affectionately known as TBDBITL. To borrow a famous tagline from commercials, the OSU band didn’t just raise the bar in halftime routines, it is the bar.
But that didn’t stop the Michigan band from trying to pull something off of its own, and at the Buckeyes’ expense.
At halftime of the game last week against Northwestern, the band dressed in maize and blue sort of trolled Ohio State by doing a halftime routine of beer pong involving OSU and Michigan. The first ball had an Ohio State logo on it and missed the “bucket,” while the second ball with a Block-M bounced around and found its mark. Watch the below video courtesy of ESPN’s Tom VanHaaren.

I mean, I’ve seen some pretty slow-developing plays from the Michigan offense under Jim Harbaugh, but apparently, the band takes the cake here. I’d like to give the group credit for being creative, but Ohio State’s halftime skits are lasers and fireworks compared with Michigan’s, who look a bit more like stick figures and tiddlywinks.
Keep trying to live up to TBDBITL there Michigan, you’ve got a ways to go.
