I really wish we would go back to the Cooper and Early Tressel look with the jerseys with less black on the sleeves and long white socks.

I like the new style.  I wish they would get an alternate black jersey or charcoal gray.

Eh... I think that'd be a decent thing for recruiting but other than that I'm not a big fan of BFBS (Black for black's sake)

For some reason black just seems to make the team look more intimidating. I would like to see the team bring it out maybe once a year for a night game or something. I seem to remember a Roger Federer quote in which he said he would wear black shirts just for that reason.

Class of 2016. Go Bucks!

Well I feel sheepish...totally forgot about that little difference.

Jack Tatum was also a safety...

No, he switched back and forth between safety and cornerback in college.

No, Tatum was a fast tank allowed to do whatever he wanted. That dude was the original physical freak.

 

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

Ok, technically his position according to Hayes, Tatum and Holtz was to cover the best wide receiver on the opposing team, so he played all over the place.

I would argue that we might also be Safet U but Miami might take that one

Sean Taylor and Ed Reed are arguably two of the best safeties to play the game. Losing Taylor was a huge loss for football in general.

man, Nate Clements was a bad dude. I miss the majority of grey on the sleeves and numbers on the shoulder pads as well.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

For a while there, Miami had made a pretty legit claim to the title of DB U but OSU's consistency at producing top end talent at S and CB has never really faltered. Springs was the goods man. Shut down at the college level, top 3 corner in the NFL for a large part of his professional career.

4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off

I still have a soft spot in my heart for Chris Gamble.  That dude was just fun to watch.  Going both ways was the shite.
