I think I've flip-flopped on alternate jerseys. I used to believe Ohio State's basic uniforms bordered on military regalia, and it bordered on blasphemy to alter them. While I still believe the regalia part, it's not as if OSU's jerseys have been the same since the 1920s; change is an inevitable part of life. Alternate jerseys, it would seem, are here to stay. I don't think I mind.
These jerseys from @NikeBased — so they must come from Nike, amirite? — turned up on Twitter today, and although they leave me missing the scarlet stripe down the center of the helmet, I think they're absolutely phenomenal.
The Buckeye leaves on the shorts and the black visor/facemask are SICK (that's slang for awesome), in my humble opinion.
I also like what the artist did with Michigan's jerseys. I give you the Great Lakes design:
Not sure if I'm a fan of the M on the front of the helmet that looks like it was drawn with a pencil, but other than that, these are the freshest Michigan jerseys I've ever seen. It's a good thing Michigan sold their soul to Adidas, because these jerseys are way too cool for them to ever be donned by a team coached by Brady Hoke.
