Default Tbdbitl

TBDBITL is what makes Ohio Stadium especially magnificent. Band members practice 40 hours per week and perform legendary routines such as the Ramp Entrance and Script Ohio that are approaching a century in age.

The sound recording doesn't well represent the actual experience in either of these youtube videos.

TBDBITL's halftime shows also are famed.

Anybody who attends an OSU game, should plan to arrive sufficiently early to attend the free Skull Session pep rally. Only the first 14,000 fans get free seats, to events that often feature celebrities such as LeBron James.

Yeah great post. I'm glad you captured the band and skull session- two things that are unlike anything else out there.


Funny story on the Band. I was at the Fiesta Bowl last year debating an old Notre Dame band member whether or not OSU or Notre Dame had the better band. Outside of a kazoo, I've played ZERO instruments. Anyway, I've seen OSU band live on three occasions- one was at Browns game. I would guess 90% of the stadium didn't leave their seats during halftime- they actually left at the start of the 3rd quarter...lol.

Only been to a couple

Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ (OK vs Stanford)
Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA (Washington Huskies vs Michigan Wolverines)

Enjoyed both. Would go to either again.

What got me interested in this topic is today's Citrus Bowl in Orlando, FL that is on TV as I type this, Notre Dame vs LSU. The TV info only said the game was being played in "Camping World Stadium" so we googled this and found that it's played in Orlando, FL. I figgered it was Florida with a name like Citrus Bowl...but what struck me was the terrible reviews of the ballpark itself. Wow.

Anyone been to a Citrus Bowl? Are the reviews below anywhere close to the truth?

The Yelp reviews on this place are terrible, here are a few of them....

1. I will never attend another event here. Here's why:

- They only sell soft drinks and water in plastic bottles but you cannot bring the bottles to your seat so they take an extra minute to pour your beverage into a cheap plastic cup before swiping your card and letting you go back to your seat.
- The above is because they do not offer fountain drinks.
- Parking is a disaster. Random side streets are used as lots during big events and they have the audacity to charge $50 to park on grass.
- Security lines are painfully slow, even with the clear bag rule.
- They ran out of ketchup, mustard, and napkins within an hour of the event starting.
- They told someone to come back in 10 minutes for beer.
- The stadium is old and it shows. It could really use some TLC.
- They are constantly refilling the Pepsi fridges because instead of fountains (as mentioned in points 1 & 2) they would rather keep using plastic bottles, which slows down the flow of traffic.
- Stairs do not have lights and ushers must use flashlights to lead the way once the sun goes down.
- Seats are uncomfortable.
- Audio is hit or miss.

2. First time here and so far the experience has been HORRIBLE!! Cash only parking?! Really?! Get some Squares or something. Let's get with the times. Walked the entire stadium because no one knows where the Stadium Entrance is. How about investing in some signage!!

The Citrus Bowl (or Camping World Stadium as it's now called) is fine. It's an older stadium in a neighborhood, not a suburban facility in the middle of a giant parking lot, so parking can be a hassle. I tend to like neighborhood or on campus stadiums over parking lot stadiums, so not a big deal for me. I've been to 4 games there, the last a few years ago. We've always parked in someone's yard around the stadium. Never paid more than $20 and always been within 5-10 minute walk from the stadium entrance. The people in the neighborhood will sell parking spaces in their yard. It is a mostly black neighborhood, but I don't really know much about it. The Citrus Bowl is a day game and it's always felt safe enough during the day. One year I remember one guy in the neighborhood had his smoker out in his front yard and was selling pretty tasty BBQ sandwiches for $5. A perfect pregame snack. I don't remember anything either good or bad about the concessions. Now, I'd probably just take Uber there. Sightlines are fine, but the jumbotron was old school from what I remember. A perfectly fine place to watch a game, but nothing special.
