#PhenomenalSwag: OSU QB Commit Joe Burrow Has The Coolest Socks Ever

2015 quarterback Joe Burrow surprised many when he selected The Ohio State Buckeyes last week, but judging by his wardrobe choices, he'll fit in Columbus just fine.

Burrow is in town for the Elite 11, a quarterback camp and part of Nike's Football Training Camp. (Our Jeremy Birmingham is on scene and tweeting out updates. His preview is over here.)

Burrow, though, is rocking a pair of socks I needed yesterday:

Where did Burrow get these socks? Because I'd like 100 pairs, please.

Looks pretty effortless throwing the pigskin around.  Glad to have him on the good guys side.

This is the best I can do.  Can someone beat my google-fu?

Surprised you did not come up with the Amazon link:

OSU Socks on Amazon

Doesn't 11W get a few coins when we link to Amazon from here?  Also, these are available at $5.39 instead of 11.95!!!!

I don't use Amazon often because of being poor and stuff, but does the add-on status mean you have to have a $25 order for them to ship it to you?

NW Buckeye's picture

You can order them and pay shipping, or if your order totals $25 or more you do get free standard shipping.

Add-on means you have to order something else (now at least $25 of something else).  You cannot order it by itself.

Free shipping is now $35+, on items shipped by Amazon.

Amazon actually has good prices on many things.  Although, if you're really poor, then Amazon won't help you with that.

That looks like one of the clothing items that your great-grandma in the nursing home made for everyone in the family. (Bless her heart)

You better be rockin' those @ 11 Dubgate, Seattle Linga.

Good point B-Dude I digress - you're probably right and I'd wear them proud - real proud!

These look closer.

 

Edit: You had them, I don't know why but for a second I didn't think those were the same.

I'm not sure if anyone else feels this way. Idk what it is about this kid, but I feel like he has a VERY bright future as a Buckeye QB.

Looks like a bigger more athletic Joe Germaine.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

All of 11W just ordered a (dozen) pair(s).  Sorry.

I was tempted to, but managed to restrain myself and only order half a dozen.

I'm sensing Burrow could be something special as well. Calm under-fire is a special attribute for a young QB.

Go Bucks!

He looks to have a really weird, Tebow-ish release.

And we can only be so lucky if he puts up Tebowish numbers.

Been looking around for updates, unfortunately I'm not seeing a whole lot being said about Burrow.  It's just one camp, but after I watched his film I thought for sure he'd be making headlines.

He looks good in a Buckeye uniform too:

Campbell may be fast as shit, but Marotti needs to get him on the calf machine and start doing some calf raises. Just my $.02.

One thing I have noticed in sprinters' calves.  If the muscle is long and lean (like Campbell, Teddy Ginn, and even Joey Galloway from back in the day), they are pretty fast men.  The more bulk to the calf, the slower the times.  Just my observation over the years.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

Bare with me. Im a newbie at this and dont know how to post images but EGW had some pretty cool McKinley/OSU socks on this website. www.thesickestsocks.com. About halfway down the page. If someone who knows what they are doing (unlike myself) wants to post the pic have at it. I just thought they were pretty cool

I found these man and thanks for the info. Great deal on these and they do offer under armour as I inquired. Seems they a family run business out of Canton, and even asked about the other ones the first poster's image and they will redesign it any way you want it. I'm in.  Thanks again for the info.

Apparently Bill Greene is impressed with Burrow too.  That or OSU uses urine-filled footballs.
