Jody Victor : Ohio State Traditions

Jody Victor: Scarlet and Gray, Ohio State's official school colors since 1878, were chosen by a group of three students in a lecture room in University Hall because “it was a pleasing combination…and had not been adopted by any other college,” noted selection committee member Alice Townshend Wing.

Script Ohio, the signature formation of the Ohio State Marching Band, is performed before, during halftime or after home football games. Each time the formation drill is performed, a different fourth- or fifth-year sousaphone player has the privilege of standing as the dot in the “i” of “Ohio.” Woody Hayes and Bob Hope are among the select few non-band members who have had the honor of dotting the “i.”

Go Bucks!
