OHIO STATE FOOTBALL<br />
What is Ohio State football you might ask??<br />
Well……..Ohio State football is many different things…<br />
It all starts with tradition.<br />
The Ohio State football team started playing games 117 years ago.<br />
WOW!!  That’s a long time to be playing football you might say.<br />
Some of the teams traditions include…<br />
On game days the team walks through the basketball arena known as the Skull Session.<br />
The Skull Session is where the Marching Band plays in front of a packed basketball arena.<br />
It is extremely loud and gets the fans blood pumping for game days. <br />
If you ever have a chance to go and watch the Skull Session it will be an experience of a lifetime.<br />
Another tradition that you might not know about is the walk through Buckeye Grove<br />
Since 1934 a Buckeye Tree has been planted in honor of each Ohio State All-American.<br />
Buckeye Leaves on the teams helmets is another tradition that started in 1968 by Woody Hayes. <br />
The more stickers a player has the more team oriented goals they have accomplished.<br />
After an Ohio State victory at home the 2,420 pound Victory Bell is rung while the players sing the schools alma mater, Ca...
The school colors of Scarlet and Grey were chosen because no other school had the colors.<br />
There mascot is Brutus Buckeye. He was named mascot in 1960 after a slew of mascots before him.<br />
Brutus can be seen on the sidelines of any game and is very recognizable.<br />
Beating Michigan.  Now that’s a tradition.<br />
Since 1934 every time Ohio State beats rival Michigan the team members are given a pair of gold pants. <br />
The tradition started when then coach Francis Schmidt told his players that “They put their pants on the same way you put ...
One of my favorite traditions when Michigan visits Columbus is the Tunnel of Pride.<br />
The tunnel is formed by former Ohio State players form a tunnel on the field for the team to run through.<br />
One tradition that may go unnoticed is the Captains breakfast. <br />
In the Captains breakfast former captains come back to have breakfast and welcome the new captains to the club.<br />
The best rivalry in College Football is the Ohio State vs. Michigan game.<br />
It doesn’t get any better than Ohio State and Michigan. These two teams have hated each other for years. Normally a Big Te...
The only trophy that the Ohio State football team plays for is the IlliBuck.<br />
Illinois and Ohio State duke it out to see who will walk away with the turtle that they play for. It is really a unique tr...
One of the best and most recognizable attributes for Ohio State is the Block “O”<br />
The “O” started in1938 is the Ohio State team logo. <br />
Block “O” is also another name for the Ohio State student section.<br />
The Ohio State fans got the idea from the University of Southern California. Now the Block “O” is one of the biggest and l...

You may say, “Wow, that’s a lot of traditions.”  And it is, but we are not done yet…<br />
Perhaps the greatest tradition at Ohio State is their marching band.<br />
Ohio State takes great pride in their marching band. They are one of the best bands nation wide.<br />
One thing that separates the Buckeye marching band a part from every other band is the fact that they are all brass.<br />
The 200 member plus band is made up of Trumpets, Trombones, Flugelhorns, F Horns, Sousaphones, and a Drum section.<br />
Because of the different instrumentation the band has a completely different sound. <br />
Here you can listen to the Buckeye Battle Cry. http://tbdbitl.osu.edu/media/audio/buckeye_battle_cry.mp3<br />
The marching band also has a couple of traditions of their own.<br />
Script Ohio is a song where the band actually writes Ohio in cursive on the field.  This is really a sight to see.<br />
At the end of Spelling out Ohio a Senior Sousaphone player high kicks out to dot the “I”. He then takes a couple of bow’s ...
Just thinking about it sends chills through a true Ohio State fan’s body.<br />
Another thing that makes the band different is the Drum Majors that they have leading the band out onto the field. <br />

I hope that you can understand some of the traditions that the University of Ohio State has to offer.<br />
There are many more things to be discovered about the Buckeyes from in-depth game coverage to radio personalities to just ...
