As a central Ohio guy I will definitely be rooting for these two young men to excel and contribute to the success of the team. The only Ohio State football player i can think of from my central Ohio high school alma mater is QB Scott McMullen (Granville).

I appreciate the shout out to Boyd Crowder, Justified is a great show! Caught some of the McDonalds AA game last night and the Russell kid impressed me. Excited to see how he'll help out Matta's squad next year

This kid is perhaps the most intriguing addition to Bucks in this recruiting class. Super excited to see him develop

Whoops, I overlooked that. Wasn't sure if they were required to be white or just lighter color in general than the home team. Still, I think a properly designed and executed one-time deal with black alternates has the potential to be pretty cool (again, for emphasis If done right! Don't make them gimmicky and don't make them a common occurrence!) I also think that wearing a charcoal grey version has potential as well ( and sticks closer to the school color scheme). But FWIW Ohio State's white away jerseys are my favorite uniforms in college football.

I think a one-time deal, if designed properly, and done unannounced for a big-time home night game would be awesome. Black may not be one of the school colors, but it has become part of the "buckeye stripe." Just like black is not a school color, neither is white, but our away jerseys are white with no issues.Lots of schools have done uniform alternates using black as a primary color. Down where I am in Athens, OH the OU school colors are forest green and white, yet the football and basketball teams have both utilized black jerseys  and they have been extremely popular. For me the key issue is the uniform design itself. Personally, I like the idea of keeping the traditional helmet and pants and simply swapping the home scarlet jersey with a black jersey that has scarlet numbering and the buckeye stripe on the sleeve. Simpler is better something like this IMO

Would love to hear Coach Meyer speak, and I'm glad we buckeye fans are privileged to have him leading our program

This is spot on. I'm looking forward to what, on paper at least, should be an exciting Orange Bowl. Go Bucks
