Ohio State Marching Band Gettysburg Tribute

Last week’s half time show from The Ohio State University Marching Band more affectionately known as “The Best Damned Band in the Land (TBIDTL) was a special tribute to the Gettysburg address.

The marching band didn’t disappoint and delivered another amazing performance! Also featured was The Ohio State University men’s glee club! What a great performance. We were honored to work with OSUMB to create the banners used as props in the show.

We have a long history of working with Ohio State University to help them achieve their goals with flags, banners, and other event decor. It’s truly an honor to work with such a prestigious university.

We’re so proud of OSUMB, The Ohio State University, and all of the students and alumni that help make our home town university so special!

Three generations of our family have attended the University and we’ll continue the tradition! Go Buckeyes and God Bless!

Top 5 Beat Michigan Moments

The game is this weekend. The game that football fans across the country look forward to every year. It’s The Ohio State University vs. “That team up north.” In order to help get Buckeye Nation ready we compiled our 5 favorite beat michigan moments (lowercase m intended).

5. Jim Tressel’s 2001 promise – fulfilled

When Tressel came onto the scene very few people knew how successful the Buckeyes would be during his tenure. In 2001 he made his first announcement and seemingly promised to beat michigan in the next season. He did so – with then 3rd string QB Craig Krenzel at the healm.

4. #1 vs. #2 – 2006
This was a cool one for us as we were also a part of the HBO documentary on the game. Watch and enjoy!

3. “Because I couldn’t go for three.” 1968 Woody Hayes

This is an iconic quote featured on this page about Woody Hayes. The Buckeyes routed that school up north 50-14. When asked why he went for two after being up 42-14 Hayes replied, “Because I couldn’t go for three.”

This rousing defeat also gave rise to the hiring of Bo Schembechler and what became known as the “Ten Year War.”

2. Ohio State tears down the M Club Banner – 1973

This is an iconic moment for a lot of reasons. This also marked the last time that michigan allowed the opposing team to run under its banner…and for good reason.

1. 2002 – Ohio State defeats the Wolverines to head to a National Championship

That wraps up our list – let us know what your favorite moments are. Be sure to check out our Facebok Page or comment below to join the conversation.

Buckeyes Start off 2-0 – On to California

Our beloved Ohio State Buckeyes are off to a great start! In week one we defeated Buffalo by a score of 40-20 and last week we defeated San Diego State University by a score of 42-7 with second string QB Kenny Guiton coming in to take the reigns for the injured Braxton Miller.

The season continues this week as the Buckeyes head to Berkley California to take on the Cal Bears. This will be Ohio State’s first road test of the 2013 campaign to win a National Championship! Good luck Buckeyes bring home the victory!

Ohio State is near and dear to our hearts. As many of you know we have made the Ohio State Buckeye Flags for the Ohio State University for some years. “We flag the team” as they say.

This time of year is always special to us and we know it is to all of you as well.

Take a look at our Buckeye Flags coming onto the field with the team!
