B4: 2012 Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl - Ohio State vs. Florida

Big Band Bowl Battle (B4) Disclaimer: Whenever possible, I tried to post band videos on equal footing; that is, amateur vs. amateur, professional vs. professional, pregame vs. pregame, halftime vs. halftime, and so on. I am, of course, limited to that which is available on YouTube. While I can appreciate if I selected a video that doesn't portray your band in the best light, keep in mind B4 is for entertainment purposes only. Thanks for stopping by!

On the football side of this game, the big storyline is that it matches Urban Meyer's former team, the Florida Gators, against his future team, the Ohio State Buckeyes. On the marching side of things, the two bands have a man in common as well, and surprisingly enough, it's the late boss of the New York Yankees, George Steinbrenner. Through charitable gifts, the Gator Marching Band calls the Steinbrenner Band Building home, while The Best Damn Band in the Land hangs their horns in the Joan Zeig Steinbrenner Band Center, named for his wife. The only thing that may have added significance here would have been if it were played in the Outback Bowl, which is played adjacent to Steinbrenner Field in Tampa.
