My reaction when I see Neutron Man is to smile. When I see the current characters that dress up and paint their faces, I just roll my eyes and wish they'd go away.
The University of South Carolina has a 'Blackout' game vs. Florida, with 84,900 fans in the stadium, and these were some comments from the Florida players:
"It was fun," Grossman said. "It was like they weren't even there. They were blacked out."
Even Florida Coach Steve Spurrier chuckled at the sight. "One of our receivers said, 'Coach, it was nice of them to wear all black so we can pick the ball out of the sky,"' he said.
So, there's hope for a special Warren G. Harding Ohio State uniform.
I was not real impressed with the way the blackout looked for the Cincinnati vs. Miami game. It sort of hides the crowd.
Are they selling any replica jerseys with 'BUCKEYES' on the collar, or are they only selling replica jerseys with the buckeye leaves?
Until recently, NCAA rules specified that one team is required to wear white. In the last couple of years, they allowed color vs. color games if they meet a few conditions.
From the NCAA rules:
ARTICLE 3. a. Players of opposing teams shall wear jerseys of contrasting
colors. Players on the same team shall wear jerseys of the same color and
1. The visiting team shall wear white jerseys; however, the home team
may wear white jerseys if the teams have agreed in writing before the
2. If the home team wears colored jerseys, the visiting team may also
wear colored jerseys, if and only if the following conditions have
(a) The home team has agreed in writing prior to the game; and
FR-32 RULE 1-4 / THE GAME, FIELD, PLAYE RS AND EQUIPMENT
(b) The conference of the home team certifies that the jersey of the
visiting team is of a contrasting color.
3. If on the kickoff at the start of each half the visiting team wears a
colored jersey in violation of the conditions specified in Rule 1-4-3-
a-2 (above), it is a foul for unsportsmanlike conduct.
In my opinion, fans wearing all black does not look intimidating at all.
Watching the Cincinnati vs. Miami game last night the stadium looked empty with all the fans in black.
That is the 'normal' stripe. The 'wide' stripe goes beyond the screws holding on the facemask
From the page that you linked:
"Scarlet and gray in combination are as well known as our name. They are our signature colors by which our audiences identify us as Ohio State."
No, the Feds did not tell JT not to talk to anyone.
A Columbus attorney leaked information to JT in a series of emails about a Federal investigation. That attorney may have told JT to not tell anyone, but JT did talk to the players, and called Pryor's mentor and talked to him, so he did not totally keep the information to himself.
But, JT had no direct contact with anyone from the Federal government that was directly involved with the investigation.
Seems like they explained their logic in the article.
I believe that Rod Gerald wore #8:
If Ohio State really wants the <insert color>-outs to work they will need to put shirts out for the fans. Otherwise it's not going to work.
I believe an update to iOS 9 was released.
Actually, I hope that Urban sticks with Cardale until the game is a complete blowout in the early 3rd Quarter, JT gets in for a Quarter, leads the team to a few TDs, and then Collier plays the remainder of the game, leading the team to another late TD, or two.
I wish Meyer had consulted the Nebraska fan before making the hire. What is he doing?!?!
The number of people who seem to not really be enjoying this current run of success by the Ohio State football team is unfortunate.
All Big Ten schools, except Nebraska. They were kicked out of the AAU, after being admitted to the Big Ten. But, your point still stands, it is unlikely that the Big Ten would add a non-AAU school, except for, perhaps, Notre Dame if they wanted to join the Big Ten.
The ACC's grant of rights deal, signed by member schools in 2013, makes it very difficult, financially, to move.
FWIW, the University of Pittsburgh is an AAU school
