Brutus did his best Rocky impersonation during a halftime show that celebrated boxing as the Buckeyes took on the Maryland Terrapins Saturday.

The Ohio State University Marching Band marching in formations that featured Brutus working out, sharpening his skills on the punching bag and duking it out with a challenger from the team up north. The band dipped into musical selections like “Eye of the Tiger” and “Gonna Fly Now” from Rocky as well as the Simon and Garfunkel classic “The Boxer.”

Andrew Harstein, a graduate from Beachwood, returned this weekend as the i-dotter. Harstein works at MedColumbus as a medical assistant.

The marching band also announced a new push to help make college more affordable. Jack and Barbara Nicklaus helped launch 100% TBDBITL at Skull Session. The scholarship initiative will benefit the members of the Ohio State Marching Band — those who give 100 percent on and off the field.

The 100% TBDBITL campaign aims to raise $10 million in endowed scholarship funds, so that every Marching Band member — now and in the future — will receive the financial support they need. The university will match the distribution on the first $6 million of eligible gifts.

Jack and Barbara Nicklaus will serve as honorary co-chairs of the campaign. Learn more about 100% TBDBITL at tbdbitl.osu.edu/give.
