Ohio State Football Uniform Statement

One-time homage to be paid to 1954 national champions

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A statement from Ohio State director of athletics Gene Smith:

“During spring, 2009, Ohio State was invited by Nike to participate in its Rivalry uniform program with several other universities from around the nation. They offered us a chance to try a new uniform product featuring cutting-edge fabrics and technology; participation in the program also offered us a one-time opportunity to salute one of those great championship teams that have built the Ohio State football tradition.

“Our coaches and players were excited to see the different elements Nike presented in the prototype designs and samples. The uniform elements are still in production, and we are extremely eager to see the finished product when it arrives.

“For this special program, we chose to recognize the achievements of our undefeated 1954 national championship team, winning the Big Ten title outright before capturing a Rose Bowl victory. These great Buckeyes celebrated their 55th anniversary with us at the Minnesota game, and this is another way for us to pay homage to their stellar achievements.

“Our fans will be able to get the first look at these unique uniforms on Sunday, Nov. 15, when we will share photos of the finished product on our website OhioStateBuckeyes.com. Fans can also take a look at the actual uniform up close that week in our official Team Shop in the Schottenstein Center. And our team will wear these custom designs when the Buckeyes take the field Nov. 21 up north in Ann Arbor.

“Again, this is a one-time opportunity to honor a great championship team. We have no plans to make any changes to the traditional Buckeye uniform for the foreseeable future.”

You mean like they had to do last year with Pryor? When he threw two TD's in a 42-7 whipping? In the standard uniform?

Yeah.

Have you seen the train wreck that Florida State will be wearing the same weekend?

http://www.seminoles.com/view.gal?id=57305

The same shoulder "design" is on the FSU jersey too. Looks like Nike is taking liberty on their interpretation of tOSU throwback.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I'm not a huge fan of the FSU jerseys or pants, but the helmets are nice and the gloves are just insane.

It's the Arkansas week, and a Cochon de Lait is a cajun pig roast.

So far it is evident that Nike's half-wit marketing intern picked the LSU straw on this one. Check out the glove straps. "Team".... no shit, eh? Awesome. This whole thing is shaping up to be an abomination.

Found pics of all of them (not detailed, can't see sides/helmets). Florida and Mizzou's look good, Texas' look pretty much like what they have now, and the all white ones (Okla, LSU, Miami, Texas, Va Tech) look like shit. If LSU's helmets are blank on both sides, that will be a direct throwback to the 40's which is cool, but they basically come away looking like a cheap Washington Huskie knock-off.

Contrived rivalry. Neither state has a natural in-state rivalry so I guess they figured they would cast a stupid looking trophy and try to force it. Baton Rouge and Fayettville are about 600 miles apart, and Arkansas has only been in the SEC since '91. When we play away it's at War Memorial in Little Rock also, so every other year it is a neutral site game at a terrible stadium in a terrible city so there isn't a big draw for a road trip game either. Everything about this "rivalry" makes me yawn.

At LSU, the older generations hate Tulane, the middle and younger generations hate Bama and/or Ole Miss (which have their own natural in-state rivalry games). Arkansas just doesn't work regardless of how much they try to push it.

Bama makes more sense, but they have Auburn.

Ole miss makes more sense but they have State.

Guess you are kind of out there.

I still think R - Kansas has an old SWC feel to it ad should be in the Big 12.
