I did not make this headline up
Nice article on one of our other walk-ons. Stories like this are one of the reasons I love college football so much. Go Blue!
Something I've often wondered, and it came across my twitter feed today (h/t @Hooverstreet), why don't we play OSU as Red vs. Blue with both teams wearing their home unis?
In the OSU Uniformz thread it often came up that the Home Jersey is the Untouchable, for both us and the OSU guys on the board. While Adidas has tried playing with the away uni piping, and Nike changed things up too, AA Torch and Pitchfork would really go nuts if they tried to do anything to the home blues.
This could add a bit of stabilization. Every year we play the last Saturday of November. Every year it's at noon (most years). And every year it looks like OSU vs. Michigan because we both wear traditional home unis.
That said, the "one team must wear white" rule came about for black-and-white TV, and has since been taken off the books. As I like Michigan's blue home jersey, I'd love to see us wear it more often. We could go color vs. color against OSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Indiana in conference, we could have done it against Bama and should do it against Arkansas. UCLA and USC do this every year, I'd love to see us pick it up. What do you think?
Ohio State removed the image and would not comment on whether it was, indeed, a picture of the jerseys that will be worn for ‘The Game’ this season, but a source close to the team told us it looked very similar.
“It will feature a helmet with an enlarged stripe and a scarlet jersey with standard block numbers outlined in a reflective silver,” the source said of this year’s alternate jerseys.
“It will have the standard gray pants, but with only a 3/4 stripe because of how they are designed. The stripes on the sleeves are enlarged as well, to match the helmet.”
There have also been rumors the helmet will have more of a chrome finish, much like the ones Oregon has been wearing, instead of the usual silver.
Mattison's commentary makes you really proud of this team and this staff:
EDIT: Got it. Geez, this thing is painful and temperamental.
First I want to apologize for missing the tailgate part of the game, I tried to get back from Florida as soon as possible and got stuck at the Atlanta airport. But that won't happen this week. I am in Ann Arbor already and I am ready.
We want to visit as many tailgates as we can so if you see me running around outside the stadium or wherever and want me to stop by just let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not that it’s that big of a surprise, Jeremy Fowler with CBSSports.com reports Two years after BCS title, Chizik appears to be out of Auburn's picture. (link)
Wonder how it impacts Derrick Green’s perceptions after being told recently by the coaching staff We are not going anywhere. He'd look great in Maize and Blue. Or what will be on Scot Loeffler's agenda after this season?
[Ed-Ace: Just to clarify, this is an opinion piece, not a report. Sure doesn't look good for Chizik, but Fowler is running a long way with a lot of 'no comment's.]
