haha the bama jersey looks EXACTLY THE SAME

Johnny Ginter's picture

okay so the idea is that you can see the paul byrant houndstooth pattern on the white, but you literally can't see it at all unless you are five feet away

Jason Priestas's picture

I heard that when Nike would submit a design to Alabama, their people would turn around and ask if Nike could make it "plainer".  I'd laugh, but a lot of those types of fans seem to permeate our fanbase as well (and with good reason).

LOL - the Boise State (model) looked like a little geek hip hopping on the stage...at least our red helmet is sparkley looking. its O.K. I guess....

Johnny Ginter's picture

this boise state model is very very excited to be here

Johnny Ginter's picture

hahah boise state got screwed. also i guess barely visible decals are in this year

Johnny Ginter's picture

shiny from head to toe pretty much describes nikes' attempts at everything to a tee

Johnny Ginter's picture

I actually don't mind em. A silver helmet would be nice, but the block O on the gloves is pretty sweet.

Johnny Ginter's picture

yeah they are way better than last year. i kind of dig the helmet too

Johnny Ginter's picture

this oregon state jersey is pretty sweet

TCU bringin back zubaz pants

+100 for Zubaz. Felt liek I was looking at a fotball card from 1990. All it needed was a half shirt.

I hate those uni's but the flat black on the helmet is awesome.

In my opinion, the uniforms are fairly nice... but DAMN I love those numbers!!!

Johnny Ginter's picture

welp, by far the best thing about this was csuri basically telling nike off. i like the unis, they are a lot more in line with what i was hoping for when they said they'd have throwbacks last year. especially the script numbers, which are great

Bucksfan's picture

I love it...it looks pretty bad ass. The all red helmet and all-gray pants and socks look frickin' sweet. It might have to make a 2011 appearance.

Johnny Ginter's picture

realtalk: if the shirt and pants were our every day uniform along with our regular helmet, i would not complain

Bucksfan's picture

Anyone else having a hard time getting this thing to stream?

Nick Buckeye's picture

No go for me either, so I just went to nikeblog.com

The VT uni's are odd, I don't like the stripe around the shoulder at all.  What is different on the Alabama uniform?  As for the OSU unis, I'm not crazy about the helmet, but overall it isn't bad.

Yea not working for me , are you on a mac, I am. 

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

it's probably not working because the live event is already over

Bucksfan's picture

Nope, PC...yeah, it's probably because it's not live, and the video isn't up.

Went to nikeblog.com...saw some of the other images.  Sorry, haters, but these things are bad as hell.  Looking forward to it!

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

I agree, legitimate throwbacks = cool

 

throwback to the future = weak

You guys are celebrities and Nike loves giving celebrities new stuff. You think you could hook us up with some of those gloves before they (if they even do) go on sale? ;-)

How did I miss him telling off Nike? What did he say? Video clip???

Johnny Ginter's picture

i'm probably overselling it, but he basically said "this thing is called pro combat and you use words like boom and kaboom and whatever" and then he started to list the actual casualties of WWII and pretty much sucked all of the wind out of the place.

also he didn't say anything at all about the unis so the nike rep had to come out and talk about them

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

Anyone have a link to the nike site that shows them like they did last year?

Thanks. Good find.

 

I wonder what the accompanying tshirt looks like/says?

I'm not a big fan of any helmet that is not silver for the Buckeyes. It may not have always been silver but it looks much better since the made it that way. I don't care so much about the Jerseys and pants, but I love the silver helmet. I just hope we don't get into a situation in 3 or 4 years where every other game is a different "throwbackcombatultraawesome" uniform. Seems to be the road they could be headed down.

btalbert25's picture

Also not a big fan of the Nike Swoosh being bigger than the Ohio State decal on the shirt. I imagine each year that swoosh will get bigger and the emblem will be harder to find.

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

what shirt?

Banned from ATO since June 3rd 2PMish PST

Johnny Ginter's picture

hell, i don't approve. what is wrong with these idiots?

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

yeah, my approval rating of that is lower than....redacted political comment

 

I realize that nike is trying to stick with a WWII motife, but that's in poor taste. Pro Combat not = Real Combat.

I don't have has big of a problem with the combat theme as others. Coaches, players, and leagues in general have used war, soldier, and combat references in speeches and marketing before. I have a problem with the throwback to the future as someone put it before. I think that's a great term for it. I guess Nike knows certain fan bases are steeped in tradition and set in their ways and will not be as receptive to change, so they dress it up and market it as a throwback so people will like it. It has worked, and honestly, I don't think it's tat big of a deal to have a different uniform, but let's not dress it up as "honoring the past" It's Nike trying to make money. Don't call it a throwback, because it's not. Last year's clearly wasn't. Combat is a good marketing idea for some programs, I think TCU's was pretty unique last year, tradition is the way to profit from the other fans.

SouthPlainfieldNut's picture

I dig them, I certainly do. The pants especially. Though, instead of the "Silver Bullets," I suggest our defense be referred to as "Ketchup."

flipbuckeye's picture

I really like it... but that helmet is still killing me.

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

historical accuracy in a throwback totally sucks

The gripe against last year's throwbackstothefuture was legit. This year, not so much.

I know I could edit my previous comment, but I'm fine with everyone knowing that I read it wrong, and thus commented wrong.

the lame faux badass crap nike trots out every year gets really old really fast
