Ohio - Let's Go Bucks Cheer
The Ohio - Let's Go Bucks Cheer was introduced at the Youngtown State University
football game on 30 August, 2008.
According to Charlie King, who contributed information about this song, The Ohio State
University Athletics Department, prior to the 2008 football season, requested the directors of the Ohio State University
Marching Band (OSUMB) to come up with a short cheer which could be used for first downs, short time outs, get the crowd into
the game, etc. In order to do this, the band directors contacted Mike Stewart, a former Graduate Assistant to the OSUMB.
Mr. Stewart was the Band Director of the University of Tennessee Volunteer Marching Band, at the time of the request. Mr.
Stewart sent several cheers to the OSUMB. After reviewing several cheers, the directors chose the Let's Go Vols
The original cheer goes: "V---O---L---S V--O--L--S Go! Vols! Go!"
The adopted cheer goes: "O ---H ---I---O O--H--I--O Let's Go Bucks!"
Authors Note: For identification purposes on this web site, the name Ohio - Let's Go Bucks Cheer was chosen for this song so not to confuse it with Let's Go Bucks!.
I wish to thank Charlie King for the MP3 recording of this song and for his contribution. Unfortunately, due to copyright/revenue issues, I cannot provide Mr. King's MP3 contribution.
This is not the first time Ohio State has borrowed a melody from another college. There are several examples of this on the web site, in regards to fight songs and ballads.
