Marching bands have a true friend in cartoonist Tom Batiuk, creator of the "Funky Winkerbean" comic strip. Batiuk has been using the cartoon to urge television networks, especially ABC, to broadcast the halftime shows at college football games and on Saturday he mingled with members of the Ohio State University marching band at the Buckeyes' game with Illinois. "We are just sort of holding an impromptu poll for ABC to let them know how much interest is out there," said Batiuk, who played trombone in his junior high school band.
