One of the great marching band traditions in college football is the Ohio State musician—or an honored guest—who “dots the I” atop the script Ohio during the Buckeyes’ halftime performance. The tradition was started by John W. Brungart, a trumpet player from of Coshocton, Ohio, in 1936. “When we did it, everyone went nuts,” Brungart told the Coshocton Tribune years later. “We thought it was another formation [but] it became a tradition. It was something.” Brungart, who ran a pharmacy in Coshocton from 1949-84, died in 2005 at the age of 89. Even though Ohio State began using sousaphone players to dot the I in 1937, Kent Stephens said the College Football Hall is most interested in learning if Brungart’s trumpet is still around. Brungart continued to play in the OSU alumni band after graduation so who knows.
