Statement from TBDBITL Regarding WSJ Report 7/31/2015
The TBDBITL Alumni Club continues to condemn the offensive lyrics from a songbook previously compiled by a few rogue members and is shocked at its release yesterday by the Wall Street Journal. The material published in the Wall Street Journal does not at all reflect the true culture of the OSUMB. The true culture of the OSUMB is that of hard work, dedication to one another and a commitment to a tradition of excellence both on and off the field. We commit to assisting the OSUMB in every way possible in their efforts to eradicate offensive and inappropriate behavior in all forms and to allow the public and the alumni to once again take pride in the work ethic and extraordinary musical abilities of the next generation of OSUMB students both on and off the field.
For over forty years, the TBDBITL Alumni Club has supported the OSUMB by raising millions of dollars for scholarships, instruments, uniforms, trips, meals, equipment, endowments, facilities, and much more. We take pride in being a strong, active, and positive influence for the young men and women of The Ohio State University Marching Band.
