Michigan Band, TBDBITL Take Turns Trolling Each Other

Marching bands are a competitive bunch. Throw in a historic rivalry on the field, and things have the potential to get nasty.

The Ohio State band, “The Best Damn Band In The Land,” got revenge against Michigan’s band in Week 2 after Michigan slighted TBDBITL in Week 1.

During halftime of Michigan’s season opener against Central Michigan, the Michigan band mocked Ohio State’s band by forming the words “OH NO,” an apparent jab at Ohio State’s “OHIO” formation.

Here’s a picture of the formation, via Big Ten Network:

On Saturday, during halftime of the football team’s win over San Diego State, Ohio State fired back with a show titled “Are You Smarter Than A Wolverine?”

The show starts with a Price is Right-style skit in which a Michigan T-shirt is declared “worthless.”

Then, during a Family Feud skit, the Ohio State band turned a Michigan ‘M’ into an Ohio State ‘O’ before the host reminded fans that Ohio State is the winningest football program in the last 100 years.

In the Wheel of Fortune skit, the Michigan family makes an incorrect guess before the Ohio State family guesses “Go Bucks” correctly.

Finally, in the Jeopardy! skit, the Ohio State family selects “College Marching Bands for $1,000″ before providing the correct answer to “The University that has the Best Damn Band in the Land.”

The host then closed the show with a nod to Bob Barker by requesting that fans help control the pet population by “having their wolverines spayed or neutered.”

Most impressive of all, the Ohio State band is said to have learned the entire performance, choreography and all, in four days.
