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
Agreed. Hopefully next year will see marked improvement for our D
Not the way we wanted to end the season, but I sure enjoyed watching the bucks this year
Three names that I like to remind our southern brethren about that hailed from the Buckeye state: Sherman, Sheridan, and Grant. Sums up Ohio's history below the Mason-Dixon Line
This is spot on. I'm looking forward to what, on paper at least, should be an exciting Orange Bowl. Go Bucks
"may have forgotten the faces of their fathers" nice Dark Tower reference there, and totally on point
Time for some buckeye football, folks! Go Bucks!
this article sums it up perfectly. well done
this uo-stanford game just got a lot more interesting
His comments on SEC fans all claiming the titles and brushing off any losses are spot on in my opinion. Been bothered by that for years now
Would enjoy seeing Brax line up with Kenny and have them run the option at some point
Can't wait to see Wilson's role in the offense further evolve
Viva el Guapo!
love watching Wilson get to the edge in a flash, kid's got serious wheels
