These band kids are evolving.
USC quarterback Sam Darnold had an all around rough time during the Cotton Bowl Friday night. Ohio State dominated the game from start to finish (24-7), and held Darnold to just a 57 percent completion percentage with no touchdowns and one interception.
Additionally, the future first-round pick got absolutely trolled by a member of the Buckeye's band.

Call it a troll, or a hex, or anything else for that matter. What is for certain though, it's one point for the Ohio State Band, and 0 points for Sam Darnold.
It's been a running joke for much of the college football season that none of the top quarterbacks in the class want to be drafted by the Cleveland Browns.
However, as one twitter user astutely observed, Darnold looked every bit a Brown's type of quarterback last night.

Throws off backfoot ✔️
Drive killing turnovers ✔️
Strip sack ✔️
With that being said, Darnold had a strong season this year, and just ran into an Ohio State team on a different level.
Still, it's never a great look to get roasted by a member of the opposing team's band.
