Thanks for the posts, brohio. I feel like going to the black uniforms is for the all-white or murdered out look, though, as opposed to a nod to the school's fourth color. I laughed at the irony of posters complaining of black uniforms with Coach Hayes in their avatars. Question: does osu.edu's brand cover the athletic department? Lastly, let me briefly be a grumpy band alum and mention that the band uniform is dark shade of Navy. The shoes and ties, however, are black.

The only thing he can get from Ohio State (possibly now or at the end of the season) is a degree. If you're gonna rip up a knee as a running back, do it in the NFL as a 1st round pick.

Well I think "paying homage to" means "inspired by" in most cases. I bet they gave a designer the old jersey as a template and the designer added some flair so they'd sell more. The finished product may vary from jersey to jersey but in some way they all came from an old school look. I would love to see perfect replicas of old uniforms but we just don't get that.

edit: Comparing the 2010 and 2011 jerseys, I see a plain red jersey with a cool font for the numbers and an American flag patch. I think that'll sell (I bought it....). For 2011, the original was just a plain red sweater with plain font. Throw in some gray and it looks a little more modern.

First things first, they're money-grabs. I do disagree with you though about paying homage. You'll never see a team wear true throwbacks like you see in baseball games. They have to be skin-tight with almost no sleeves so of course some features will be lost.

I kinda like it. For having iconic unis, Michigan has pretty shitty road jerseys. By making the pants white I think these will have a better look on the field, as far as sunshine and blue go.

I'm embarrassed I forgot about this little guy but remembered that stupid turtle

Anyone know when individual game tickets usually go on sale? I typically only pay attention to the NBA come playoff time
