It is no doubt the greatest pre-game in all of sports.

Script Ohio is the signature formation of The Ohio State Marching Band performed before or during halftime, or after home games. Script Ohio was first performed by The Ohio State Marching Band on October 10, 1936 at the Ohio State versus University of Pittsburgh football game. According to The Ohio State University Library, a similar floating formation was first performed during the 1932 season by the University of Michigan Marching band, however, it was a set-piece, instead of being formed through marching described below.
Michigan Marching Band director Jamie Nix said, "Yes, that's true (that Michigan formed OHIO with its marching band), but certainly not in the complex form it takes on now with the OSU band."

It took Woody Hayes to amplify the rivalry to a truely epic level, so the rivalry that we all know now is not the rivalry in which the tradition was born.It took Hayes' irrational hatred of Michigan to drive it to its current state. THis was further aided by one of Hayes' own assistants taking the helm in the late 60's (famous guy you might have heard of named Bo something).

Mr. MacPhisto wrote: And I do agree with ya'll, Script Ohio is the best tradition in college football. I'm not an Ohio State fan and I enjoy watching it. I've seen them do it live on several occasions when I've watched Ohio State at bowl games down here in Florida. It's always thrilling to see executed. I can only imagine how difficult it is to teach that and coordinate it. Just stunning.
