God forbid we switch things up once a year and do something different the players will be excited about. I forgot we should be catering to the middle to old aged crowd that won't even stand up on third downs instead of the players that actually participate in the game. Give me a break. These Unis are sweet, Where can I get one?
If Charlie was wearing black in this GIF, it would be my response to people like you next saturday
After the Tattoo-gate days I swore off looking at the ESPN comments. It's like that for almost any article, College football or otherwise. Best thing to do is just ignore the trolls. Getting angry just encourages them.
Dude It's a joke....Not an indictment of his character. Obviously I'm glad he's ok.
Had one in high school and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. Literally could not move for hours because I was in so much pain.
I just took it as "Were getting close to game week, make sure you're taking a lot of these reps (instead of the backups Collier, Burrow...etc) because this is the stuff we want to work on". I don't think he was including Cardale in that.
I thought it was impossible, but this is an actual insightful forum post relating to uniforms. Well done sir.
My best friend growing up was a Michigan fan and took me to the season opener to watch his Wolverines destroy a poor team called Appalachian State. Sat in the middle of the Big House in a scarlet Ohio State #7 jersey and watched them lose Live. Easily one of the greatest days of my life.
Maybe it's because i haven't seen Mark Mays smug face on my TV screen in a while but PSU Cultist's are getting my vote. They personify all the worst parts of sports fandom. They've single handedly vaulted Penn State above Michigan on my list of most hated schools.
Come on now, lets not get ridiculous. Federer is the greatest to ever do it. The things he was doing on the tennis court prior to 07 were filthy. He would outright embarrass people day in and day out. I do love Nadal though. That 08 Wimbledon final was the greatest match of all time (Only bad thing about it was Nadal wearing those stupid capri pants)
I think this is the pic you're talking about.
I would love it if they wore those, I think black pants would look pretty good with the silver helmet too.
Third jersey's are the rage now a days and I really don't understand all the hate for the black unis. Lets be honest. If OSU had a third color odds are it would be black (It's already a big part of our current uniforms). Even a school as tradition rich as Notre Dame (who's uniforms have changed much less than ours over the years) pulls out the Green uni every once in a while and it looks great. Green isn't one of their school colors but it looks fantastic and it's an awesome tradition that gets both players and fans pumped. I wouldn't mind us doing the same thing with Black. That being said I would want it done right, and these T-Shirts aren't a great start.
I can almost guarantee the real jersey will look ten times better than these T-Shirts. Nike always does this with replica jerseys and T-shirts. Take our 2009 alternates for example. The replica jersey looked terrible but the on-field product looked 100x better.
Ben Axelrod noted something similar on twitter.
With Ohio State's black alternate floating out there, it's important to note authentic jerseys always look different than replica t-shirts.— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) August 2, 2015
I mean, the replica version of Ohio State's current jersey looks like a Wisconsin shirt. Always looks different in a full uniform set.— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) August 2, 2015
With the Sleeves normal sized plus a collar design I can promise these will look much better.
Cincinatti is part of Kentucky....period. Reason number 5039013 why I picked being a Cleveland fan over Cincy.
He went on the radio to promote Chocolate Milk and got asked these questions and gave an honest, and arguably correct, answer. He never said these guys are better players, he just said Westbrook was having a better season and had played more games, Who the hell cares. He plays hard, plays the role the Cavs have asked him to and is generally a great teammate. I can't wait until the playoffs start and we don't have to hear about this crap anymore.
I'm so sick of this "Kevin Love is leaving lets freak out" narrative. He's fine, who gives a crap he's not "best friends" with Lebron. If you go read the entire interview he was also quoted as saying he'd be back next year regardless of wether or not they win the title. Lets move on.
While I agree that Izzo's a better X's and O's guy and possibly a better motivator I think recruiting should be a huge factor in deciding how good a coach somebody is in todays NCAA. Calipari might not be the best X's and O'S guy but look what he's been able to do just through recruiting (I understand UK's program is a big factor as well).
I'm going to go with James Clark. I've been saying it for a few years now but I think next year is the year he finally breaks out. He's been hampered by injury and inexperience but I think his speed is something that will get him some serious touches next year.
Your both entitled to your own opinion but after living in the south for the last 3.5 years I can tell you right now you don't know what classless is. I've worn my OSU jersey around on saturdays and had people tell me to "Get the f*ck out of their town you stupid Yankee", they still call it "The War of Northern Aggression" and they've thanked me personally for getting "That dumb Ni**er elected". It really doesn't bother me much but I was really disappointed there were still people like that in SEC country. Before I moved down here I really didn't think real racism was a thing anymore but I can tell you it is very much still alive in the south. Don't get me wrong the vast majority of people down here are super friendly and good people but there's still a few that choose to live in the past and make me glad I have this shirt to remind them that we kicked their ass when it mattered.
This is unreal. Listening to this had made it the greatest day of my life, hands down.
