Apparently they're supposed to look like the wood on a Sooner Schooner?

sure enjoys being on stage and showing his moves.  Didn't know there was such power in a crosscut slice of a tree.

The wood effect is pretty subtle; can only see it briefly in the video.  I'd give it 4 meh's out of 5.

The Sooners official site provides a little more insight into the reasoning behind the uniforms, at least as they describe it. The full piece is here - LINK

With regards to the white version of the helmet, the article reads:

Nike’s white helmet design pays tribute to Wilkinson’s squads that captured national championships in 1950, 1955 and 1956. Those Oklahoma teams wore white headgear with a signature crimson stripe from crown to base.

I'd rather go to Under Armour when the Adidas deal expires, if only because BOY will that annoy Notre Dame to have THAT deal usurped as well!

am I the only one who likes these? its a little cooler than their old uniforms which were bland but still stays pretty traditional. the wood on the red helmet is pretty subtle but I think its pretty sweet

Honestly, I kind of like them.

An aside: met Courtney Avery today on campus; very nice guy. We chatted for a minute about the 2011 Ohio State game.

When I first saw the picture I thought those were the new home and away uniforms... now knowing its an alternate uniform, I don't think they are that bad.

Maybe next we can have another lame slogan like #eatthesoup. And have cool graphics of chunks of meat & carrots on our helmets.

But, I wouldn't mind Michigan going to Champion or back to Russell, if the price is right of course. PLEASE, for the love of God, Dave Brandon, don't make us wear Adidas gear anymore.

I feel like, in the days of concussion-consciousness, having wood-grained helmets and a "bring the wood" slogan is a bit of an odd choice.
