In 1983, former OSU Marching Band member John Tatgenhorst was mixing instrumental tracks at Universal Studios in Chicago with Gene Warman when he realized that the cheer being used at Buckeye games was difficult to follow and never really took hold. Inspired, Tatgenhorst composed and arranged “Let’s Go Bucks!” and gave it to TBDBITL at no cost.
While written primarily for football games, the cheer is commonly played at other Ohio State sporting events, including baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer. There are no lyrics to the song, but there are noticeable pauses for the crowd to yell, “Let's Go Bucks!”
