I thought exactly the same thing! I even posted it on Facebook! I sure hate the talking heads and commercials during half-time on college ball. I loved those bands as a kid growing up in O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A lol!

Geek that I am, I did notice that they shot off the cannon with a “lighted fuse.” Now, we all know CW cannon used friction primer and lanyard but, while it would have been cool to see them pull that off, I doubt most people would have understood.

I totally noticed, but the fact that the cannon recoiled made up for it–to me! Noticed your reviews in Monitor today–Huzzah, & a Happy Thanksgiving a la Lincoln!

Two important things to me.

Pretty neat even if it was Ohio State. I guess even the ill tempered Woody Hayes would have been proud since Archie Griffin said in a documentary once, “His (Hayes) heroes were people like Grant and Sherman”.

I always wish they would use a lanyard instead of a lighted fuse. I always fuss at older films for doing that like John Ford’s ‘Horse Soldiers’.
