Vote for the Official Ohio State Football Tee for the '13 Season

UPDATE: Design No. 3 is your winner.

In yet another sign that real, live football is right around the corner, Ohio State has opened voting for the official t-shirt of the 2013 football team. The choices, shown above, feature a simple font treatment in design No. 1, an old-school football (with a sneaky "OHIO") in design No. 2, and an even older-school football (with Buckeye leaf) in design No. 3.

Another in a long line of fan participation concepts Urban Meyer and his staff have been able to dream up, the first official t-shirt contest went to design No. 2 last year, featuring the school's athletic logo and the word "FOOTBALL" above a large "2012" on the front.

Design No. 3 is off to a healthy lead at this point in time, but be sure to make your voice heard.

3 for sure. #1 reminds me of a coca cola logo and #2 doesn't even say Ohio. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

Actually O-H-I-O is on #2, although cleverly hidden.

Ahhhhhhh those sneaky SOBs. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

Haha! Take a second (perhaps more) look at #2 my friend.  This is why I like #2.

Look again.  I'll admit that the O's look like they were designed by Dali.

Actually design 2 does say OhiO.
Edit: looks like I wasn't fast enough.

I'll agree on #3 but the image itself needs to be a little lower

#3 love the Buckeye leaf and the detail on the football.

Mizzillion's picture

Agree.  I like 3.

I liked last year's a lot. Kind of a poor effort this year IMO. #3 it is I guess.

There's yellow on that shirt... Buckeye leaves are green. #2 fo sho.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

+1 for the classic Monty Python reference.

After taking a Numero dos, I vote Numero dos.

And it would most definitely look fantastico on some senoritas.

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

Actually, none of them are bad, I kind of like them all...but for me, I like the simplicity of #2. I also really like how they did the O-H-I-O in the football. Kind of hidden -- yeah, I like #2 most.

Yeah, I officially change my vote to #2 after being informed of the hidden O-H-I-O by the more astute 11w readers. Wish it was a lil less subtle but oh well 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

Number 2 is the only one I'd even consider wearing, but there is no gray in it, so as a Buckeye football shirt it sucks too.

either 2 or 3 would kick ass, 1 looks like something found at a goodwill in 1992

The people voting for #1 hate fun and whimsy.

All three of them would look great on my wife, but I wouldn't be caught dead in any of them.

I don't care for any of the three. In which case I won't vote and just buy whichever wins.

Yo voto por el número tres

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I think number 2 is the coolest because of the hidden O-H-I-O, but number 3 has a substantial lead. I think number 2 is in last because most people don't see the hidden O-H-I-O at first.

Or they see it and think it looks dumb. I could write ohio hidden in my chest hair but that doesn't make my hairy chest any more appealing.

Thanks for that mental image.

I felt the need to really drive my point home,'re welcome!

Where is the 'none of the above' option?

MN Buckeye's picture

I agree with 'none of the above', but only because I would not wear one.  I think they would look great on any female in one size too small.

I actually like design three.

could we reboot?  #1 does look like something earlier than the 90's and #2 & 3 look like something by a matchbook art school graduate

Number two is the shit, but I like number three.

I am a big fan of NOT #1... 2 is my fav and I would be very happy with #3

I like the first one. Not sure why everyone hates it.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

According to his twitter, it looks like design #1 was created by the great Samuel Silverman.  Just sayin'.

IBleedSandG's picture

I'd expect more from Sam.

I just yawned looking at those options. I like the idea of throwback looks, but none of these look like they pulled it off with great success. Loved last year's choices.

#2, Though I agree that none of the designs are striking or stir anything inside my scarlet heart except maybe a solid "Meh..."
