325 E. 15th was the address of the apartment building I lived in at 15th and 4th.  Anyone that lived there had something happen.  One year I was there, someone decided to throw a Molotov cocktail at the door of someone on the top floor.  I had my motorcycle's tires slashed multiple times and apartment windows broken so many times I installed my own alarm system even though I rented,

Walt, if this effort does not lead to another source of income for you, I'd be shocked as these are really outstanding.

I am a traditionalist and want only minor changes.  I like the Woody-era 68 and 72-75 uni's the best.  I did not realize until someone else pointed out that Woody was a trailblazer with the stripes on the sleeves and how TTUN would stay away from these for their uni's.  I also love how our classic helmets change throughout the year with the progressive addition ofBuckeye leaves but last year's TTUN game with the green leaves didn't work.

I would like to see your design for one game, but back to the standard after that.  But, the addition of gold pants/Buckeye leaves for Michigan wins resonated deep in my kidneys and would like them to be part of all uniforms going forward. But never something additional, even a national championship.   One strong feeling I have though is I would like to see them moved to the front of the uniform.  I want our players to see the TTUN players eyes drop down to check the count on our jerseys.  That could be an inspiring moment.  When our player has his fair share of symbols, it will be a sense of pride to see the eyes of the opponent recognizing the count.  Likewise, if we have had a series of losses, the lack of insignia will likely illicit a response from that TTUN player of trash talk that could very well inspire our player to rise to a higher level.  Perhaps  their players will try to keep "eyes up" and not look at our jerseys which would be a distraction to them.  Ask any guy who works with ladies that like to show cleavage.  Personally I prefer the pants as I believe they are a bit more humiliating to TTUN than Buckeye leaves.

For the comment to utilize a watermark of sorts like the basketball team has on their uni's, I think that complicates the clean look of this design by Walt. I would like to propose Ohio State take a page from Apple Computer's original Macintosh computer from 1984.  Molded into the inside of the plastic e case of each of these computers is the signature of each member of the Macintosh team.  Not every Mac owner was aware of this or saw it, but it was there.  How about something along those lines inside the helmets?  Perhaps having an all-American, past captain or Heisman winner or a top player who had the same jersey number use a Sharpie to write something.  I realize that the pads will cover these up, but the individual player will know it's there and it will be a reminder to the past.  The press and fans will want the players to reveal "what's inside the helmet" and perhaps they do share or they do not.  If the player remains until graduation they get the helmet for keeps.  Of if that is not allowed, the school can collect these and auction them off at some point to help line the coffers of the athletic department or to fund a scholarship program.

I would like to hear if anyone has a thought on such an idea and... GO BUCKS!

You can order a shirt that is similar with Buckeyes around the back of the collar.  To arrive 11/27 though.

"And yes, it's going to be miraculous when Jim Tressel is anointed as the head football coach of Ohio State this spring. It will be Gordon Gee's biggest power move yet. I already have goose bumps thinking about it."

DJ, Are you and I the only ones that are considering this??
