Please tell me we are doing nothing like this at all: http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/view.gal?id=129842
OSU's Unis for the Game
The big numbers and bigger stripes on the helmets...kind of reminds me of nfl blitz
for helmets? Not surprised at anything those rednecks do.
Outside of the christmas ornament they'll wear on their heads, it's not that bad
one day they'll get the proportions right.
As far as uniformz go these aren't that bad. I'd say that are comparable to our non-bumblebee uniformz.
From a pure design perspective, they are better than any of our alternatives, in my opinion.
They won't like remembering these that much after they get pummeled in them.
The Ohio State fans like them, and I don't blame them. They do harken back to 1968 -- but more correctly, to 1969 (remind them of that) and the years of the Ten Year War.
I don't get dopey thing with the gang-sign gloves, but everybody --even Michigan-- is doing that.
Some of the Saturday-edition elements could easily be made permanent with them. If they pull off a big win, I wouldn't be surprised if some of them became permanent.
BEAT OHIO... Badly
Little easier to see on this link.
Today, one of her teachers made her sit in the hall for the entire period because she had a Michigan shirt on. 55 minutes. I obviously don't have enough points to start a thread. I'm sure most of us aren't all that surprised. My brother said, "In the words of Hoke, 'It's almost personal." Go Blue!!!
Wow, can teachers get away with that? Can't that be categorized as some type of harassment?
Yeah, if that really did happen, maybe it should become public knowledge. Not at all okay. Then again, it's unlike the internet to provide false stories and allegations.
The superintendent and principal have been informed this evening.
Is this gonna become a news story? I hope so
I live in Lima, OH. Does your niece attend Lima City Schools or one of the other outlier schools? The school I attended always had "Ohio State/Michigan day" on the friday before the game and we were encouraged to sport our gear for either team.
She goes to Shawnee. I'm not sure of the school name. My brother wouldn't share the teacher's name with me either as he was afraid of me contacting him. I hope the local TV stations catch wind of it.
That's the school my wife went to, and my schools rival. Ill let you know if I see anything in the news.
but it was in 3rd grade, and it was a fake detention slip. living in columbus, everyone wore scarlet and grey, and I wore all michigan clothes. My parents knew the person in charge of discipline at the school and she thought it would be a funny joke to tell them ii'd be getting detention every week till I either wore scalret and grey or something ohio state. My dad has a red t-shirt with grey letters that says "GO BLUE", someone made for him because she was dying of cancer and figured that would be the only way she'd ever see him wear scarlet and grey. That weekend (1993) I got my own scarlet and grey GO BLUE shirt and was paraded around the school on monday because they liked it so much.
I don't think the shenanigans that go on about this should be taken too seriously. In middle school there was always a party that friday before the game, and all the people that wore osu got cupcakes and the michigan fans got stale marshmellows. it made me feel better on monday when i'd hand out sympathy cards to all the teachers that gave me so much crap.
I would say they are great upgrades to their current uniforms. Can't believe I am going to say this but Nike got it right once.
I know you hated to say it.
This shit annoys the hell out of me. Last year was great. Seeing the two CLASSIC uniforms on the field. Actually, oh I don't know, It looking like Michigan was playing (and beating) ohio and not rutgers.
Also FWIW: state had stupid shiny helmets this year against Michigan made by Nike.
Who won that game?
See you saturday, urban myth.
40-34, coming back for more.
The alternate helmets last year (numbers)
But it at least wasn't the first time... we've had that numbers on helmets before. I find it more than annoying... some games need these gimmicks... this game doesn't. Leave it alone!
Is that really a difference? It's just decals that were put on the sides of helmets. I think Michigan should have kept them.
I wouldn't put it past DB to pull something crazy with our own uniforms for this one.. *Poof* you didn't see this one coming...
Or just take it to the next level:
Boom! Mascotted. Spray tan colored to comemmorate this joyous week of Big 10 expansion.
Is anyone else bothered by the filthy carpet in the pictures?
Keep it classy, ohio AD.
Wow, now that you mention it, there IS a lot of crap on that carpet.
Not unique at all. We need to just come out in our traditional road uni. Leave the gimmicks to the classless incl their barbaric fans.
But all Ohio unis suck so...
A picture of it being modeled was included:
Overall, it's one of the better ones, I'm not sure I like the reflective numbers though. It'll look better once it is covered in tears.
seems like a good compromise. Ohio kept the integrity and structure of the uni's, and nike got to exhibit and sell some of their latest bells and whistles. I expect this to be a standard of sorts for teams going forward.
can't wait to see us wreck em.
Our gimmick should be to come out in our late '90's away unis that we terrorized them in during the Cooper years.
The 2000 Michigan-OSU game was on ESPN Classic today. Those uni's looke great and what happened in them gave Ohio fits.
Bring back the Nike Swoosh for a game...
...too bad we can't bring back Charles Woodson in the Nike uni
I prefer traditional unis for Ohio. That said, those are well done - when can we get rid of Addidas?
Helmets look awesome. Numbers on the jerseys seem way to big in pictures
those dumbasses put that shit on e-bay
Can't wait till we get them all marked up with maize and blue.
Personally, I don't see the big deal with them.
we need to get rid of Adidas and get back Nike!
it's not the worst one they've worn.
I'm indifferent on these uniforms. They are better than most and are not a complete abomination but OSU should be above this and keep a traditional uniform, but whatever.
My question bringing this back to Michigan (and maybe I am just too OCD), is why can't adidas make a shoe that is plain black with the simple three stripes to be a classic or why can't they make a navy shoe with some hints of maize on it. Really anything besides the white plastic laden cleats we trot out there in now. There are bigger fish to fry but make us a shoe that is unique to us or at least color coordinated (black is even fine) to us. It seems like a no brainer but maybe I have been around my wife too long and placing too much importance on shoes.
Sweet, as in pile of shit.
is horrible. Another reason to hate on OSU Saturday.
