Yes they are definitely wearing those. They were on College Football Live and The Experts on ESPNU. Those are absoultely disgusting. I almost threw up once I saw those.

If this is true, OSU is bordering on bat-shit crazy.  The traditional look of this game is going off the map with these pop warner looking unis.

Maybe OSU will continue to wear crap-ass unis until they feel UM is competitive again in this game.  Apparently they aren't taking Michigan or THE GAME seriously, either.

OSU wearing these unis reminds me of Walter Smith running off at the mouth against "overmatched" OSU a few years ago.  I am starting to wonder if the team is taking the rivalry as seriously as they used to.  It's almost like they are "showing off."  The Michigan/OSU game is a dangerous place to take that mentality.

Maybe we should wear all yellow uniforms, make the ball into a hot dog, and turn the end zones into giant buns.  The referees could wear all radioactive green and be relish.

I'm sure TUOOS is being paid very well to do this.....the school will do anything for a buck.  Everything on TUOOS campus is licensed to someone exclusively.....I'm sure this is just another example of chasing dollar signs from sponsors.

Perhaps I am being hypersensitive, but I find the military tie-in extremely offensive:

This year, in conjunction with Nike's season-long "Pro Combat" campaign, they're sporting a red-on-red look to commemorate the 1942 champs, many of whom were subsequently deployed in World War II. Because nothing says "Duty, Honor and Country" like Nike's moisture-wicking Dri-FIT fabric and Vapor Jet gloves featuring premium Magnigrip CL technology.

Apparently we're at a point where we're exploiting veterans' sacrifice to profit on jersey sales? People are okay with this? That's a pretty sad comment about where we're at as a society. Maybe Nike should consider donating a portion of their proceeds to the VA, VFW, or another worthy cause.

Here's hoping we pound these arrogant fools 6 feet into the Field Turf on Saturday.

Yes, everytime there's a flyover, ceremony to "honor" veterans, or some other crap, it's designed to boost sales and make money.  There are no altruistic motives in pro/FBS athletics, regardless of what we want to believe.

I'm a Marine, and I deal with these assholes wanting flyovers, etc, and "honoring veterans" isn't a part of the plan.
