I'm a die hard Michigan Wolverine, but that Ohio State marching band is outstanding. My brother went to both Michigan and Ohio State and marched in both of their bands and he says that Ohio State by far has one of the most creative marching programs around!
Since I live right near and work on Texas A&M University, I have to confess to being a "Fightin' Texas Aggie Band" fan. I like the traditional marching band formations. I am not really into the sweepy, turny, dancy marching band genre.
Having said that, though... I have to change my opinion! After watching the Ohio State Marching Band... I was blown away! They are as impressive to me, as the Fightin' Texas Aggies! I had to watch that video several times! And paying tribute to Rush... I mean... Wow, just Wow!
To give you an example of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band, watch here:
Cool video for sure.
While never was a Rush "fan", I never didn't not like them either. To this day, Rush and Eagles are bands I will not change the station when on the radio.
Was and still am a metal / hard rock guy. Drummer since 1987. So of course, was amazed by Neil and his talent.
Our little band was almost "famous" and we opened for Enuff Z Nuff, Faster Pussycat and Dokken for shows in 88 and 89. But that was long ago and far away.
