EDIT: My apologies for the insane size of the original image. I've attached a smaller version here. The image is linked to the crazy wallpaper-sized image on the Nike website.
OSU unis for the Game, 2010
and edit the picture to the size of a rational effort
but for some reason it always displayed in its original hugeness.
Edit: Dangit. Now that the picture is changed this doesn't make any sense. In the original post, the picture included airplanes, barbed wire, and amurrica.
Edit edit: And now it's been changed back. AMURRRRICA!
an ugly uniform to another ugly uniform honor anybody?
They really shouldn't liken themselves to any soldiers. But if they're going to, this would be a more accurate representation-
(Edit: choose one, man, choose!! ;-)
Where's Lloyd Brady?!?!?!
Who knew OSU was an acronym for "Alabama?"
just in a way that isn't hideous
They look like hemorrhoids.
They belong on Southern Illinois or Western Kentucky. Also, why is the flag on the shoulder backward? Ricky Stanzi will be displeased.
Something about how it's supposed to be displayed relative to where the flagpole would be. Never made much sense to me.
you're right. it's supposed to remind us of the era when a standard bearer would lead a charge in the battlefield. if you were to view a flag bearer on his right side as he's charging forward, the flag would appear backwards. so when a soldier today has a flag patch on his right shoulder, it appears "backwards", and when it's on his left shoulder, it's "normal." kellen winslow jr would be jealous of these unis.
a sweater vest Ken...
The "MGoBlog cares about the enviroment" tag in his right hand had me on the floor laughing. Woo unintentional humor!
Edit: Aww, you ruined it by fixing the pic size. T_T
last year, now this. It honks me off that they trot this gimmicky shit out for their game with us. Wear these clown costumes against Indiana, not us. God, I want to beat these guys so bad it hurts.
You'd be surprised how many OSU fans agree with you about the uniforms, especially the helmets. Unfortunately, Nike's contract pretty much lets them do what they want.
Its one thing to honor a past team at your school, and i suppose its somewhat of a nice story to talk about the '42 team playing and then heading off to war, but the WWII imagry on the pic and linking all of these past and present combat metaphors is a bit too far.
that being said, they are ugly.
Looking at the turf in the picture, you'd think they're doing a tribute to the 2006 OSU team.
so it's a bunch of douches with red helmets.
Looks almost as post-apocalyptic as MonuMental's osu wallpaper.
OSU's combat mantra for their football uniforms matches the evil evilness of their band's.
Why are they honoring the 1942 team now? Why not do it two years from now - their 70th anniversary?
Agreed, the OSU band uniforms look like the Waffen-SS. They would not look out of place marching down the main street of a ruined village.
In the picture provided they actually look cool. The image on DocSat? I am reminded of a pop warner team.
There are those used-tampon helmets I raved about yesterday.
nothing says "Duty, Honor and Country" like Nike's moisture-wicking Dri-FIT fabric and Vapor Jet gloves featuring premium Magnigrip CL technology
Well those are just disgusting.
Call me crazy, I've always liked that number font.
(take no offense to the bitch part, it comes with the territory.)
This picture sort of makes me angry. Not sure why!
Harvard called and asked for their uniforms back.
