When your football team absolutely blows and your band can’t hold a candle to TBDBITL, at some point, desperation takes hold. When it does, this is what you get. During halftime of the Michigan/Illinois game, the Michigan band put on a show filled with cheap gimmicks and pathetic jokes. There’s something sad and tragic about Michigan, who hasn’t beaten Ohio State in nearly a generation, poking fun at Ohio State’s loss to Wisconsin.
And while the Brutus/Ohio Bobcat thing was cute, the entire performance just reeks of desperation. I love it when Dorthy tells the Nitnany Lion that The Big House is a tougher stadium than Penn State. What are you going to do, shake your keys at them? And in yet another act of jealousy, UM tries yet again to take credit for Script Ohio. While we’re all impressed that Michigan could actually spell Ohio, it was TBDBITL that made it “Script Ohio.”
To give credit where credit is due, I scrapped the video from UMgoblog where even some of their fans were complaining about it. There’s no way I’m going to make you sit through all 12 or so minutes. If you think you can stomach more, the rest of the video is here.
