Two very different bands:
1. Ohio State University, Columbus Ohio
&
2. Ohio University, Athens Ohio

Two parts of my life - college football and indie rock - that I never anticipated having an intersection. Start with the halftime show Brooklyn beta males, and eventually you may find your way to actual football!

Amen 5:28. Eventually they can ditch soccer and move on to a big boy sport.

why do grown men enjoy watching college boys playing football?

^ I suppose they are "boys" if by that you mean young men who could kill you with an angry stare. Then again, why do you get excited about going to a Tune-Tards concert?

6:33, it's because they (see 9:44) are closet cases

"6:33, it's because they (see 9:44) are closet cases"

That's an interesting theory. Every guy is either gay, a beta male or they're repressing their homosexuality, evidently. Did you learn this in a clit lit class?

I-O!

Please don't insult the Best Damn Band In The Land by confusing them with Ohio University. That second video is pretty terrible for a college marching band. The first one, though? Fucking astounding what they can do.

Eh, I tried watching college football, but it fails to hold my interest. Probably because there are so many colleges and it's tough to know and keep track of all the players. Give me the (however, fucked up it is now) NFL over college.

It's easier to pick a college to follow if ya went to one.

10:40 is right, men who like to watch young hunks in tight pants pigpile on top of each other couldn't possibly be repressed homos. It's just FAAABULOUS to watch from an athletic perspective. Go back to your clit lit class and take your disgusting vaginas with you!

11:07 talks with a lisp.

This band is great live and on record. Haters to the left, as my main man Kenneth Parcells would say.
