I've always thought Illinois had no excuse to not be at least as good as Georgia. Illinois and Georgia have both never really won many titles or anything, but they are both decently sized states with one huge city to recruit from. I mean Illinois had Red Grange right? America's first football superstar? That's gotta count for something...right?
Whoah. If that's the case, I will have to be a Panther fan this year. I hope they tear it up.
Before Benjamin got hurt, Ginn was the number 2 WR. But he's being used in a specific role, as their main deep threat to stretch the field. I bet with Benjamin out now, Ginn still sticks with the same role and somebody else has to step in as no.1. The article I read says the players are pushing Funchess to step up to no. 1 because of his size. I would guess Funchess no.1, Ginn no.2, and Philly in the slot.
It's too bad because I think Ginn and Philly would have feasted this season with Benjamin drawing so much attention.
As a deeply devout Christian, (but trust me, my opinions are probably way different than what you would assume) these type of things are some of my favorite topics so it's tough for me to reign it in and keep to the forum rules. So let me just say, without elaborating, I don't like it when people say "everything happens for a reason" either. I agree with you guys.
Ted Ginn Jr. So damb exciting. Braxton Miller is really carving out a special place in my heart too. But not really, that's just a metaphor.
I like the third one a lot. adding the gray in the sleeve really helps visually tie the helmet and the jersey together. good work!
Those are the two guys I'm pulling for to win the job
Thank you for posting that Mitchellr15. I wish everyone would look at that link. Black and white are and have always been part of our color scheme. You take the black out of our regular uniforms and they no longer look half as good. Scarlett is an actual color, but Gray is a neutral. Of course you're going to mix in the other two neutrals, white and black, to help the gray look stronger. Duh. It's not rocket science folks. We have 1 color and 3 neutrals. What's wrong with having fun and emphasizing the white or the black once a year?
Yeah. I'm excited to see the black uni's ( hope it's not a let down ). But I would be equally excited to see some Charcoal Gray ones too. I always wonder why we don't see very Nike experimenting with darker shades of gray.
That may be true, but I doubt it. It seems more likely that the Bengals colors are an attempt to stick it to the Browns. They looked almost identical before the Bengals added the stripes. I do know that Paul Brown thought bright orange helmets made it easier for the QB to see the receivers downfield, and that's why he chose that color with Cleveland. Maybe he was just hellbent on having orange helmets with a dark contrast jersey.
I always expected James Clark would be my favorite player out of the last few recruiting classes. I'd love to see him get more playing time. He could be an electric deep threat.
Forgive me for being uninformed, but I thought dots were used for dramatic pauses. At least that's how it is in books anyway. Since when do dots mean sarcasm? Is that just a message board thing?
This is not a video of domestic violence. Don't pretend like it is.
You won't have to get used to it. It's just one game. It will be over in 2 hours.
haha! I optimistically disagree, but that was pretty funny.
Yes! context is the key. a Jersey is only 1/3 of the uniform, after all. let's wait and see how it looks with the pants and the helmet and everything. I'm sure it will look better, although I do think it's always more generic when Nike makes one design and tries to force fit several different teams into the same template. It's way better when they make unique designs for a specific team, like they did for each team in the Playoffs last year.
those are not very cohesive. each individual part of the uniform is cool, but put it all together and now you've got 3 different stripe patterns going on, which is just bad design, in my opinion. Uniforms should be , um .... Uniform. Cohesive. It has some cool potential though, with a little tweaking.
( I hate how much I am intrigued by sports uniforms. I love talking about it, but am acutely aware of how un-masculine I sound when I do. )
Out of all 9 teams using this same design template, at least ours are definitely the best. Us and Texas. Just be thankful we're not Florida State or LSU.
I like it as a T-shirt, I'd buy one. But I've always been a sucker for Raglan sleeved baseball shirts anyway. Will withold judgement until I see it actually on the field and in the context of the whole uniform.
I I always hoped that our black uniforms would be based on Woody's simple, Iconic, black ball cap with the red Block O in the center. I think that would be classic. Black, but still immediately identifiable as OSU.
I just realized "McCown" will be on there twice.
I think Ohio State 59, Wisconsin 0 was the best game of the season. Best game by one team anyway. does that count?
I am pretty fascinated with that stuff too, but especially the Mound Builders. Ohio is nuts.
I've always wanted to read "The Frontiersman". but I gotta be honest, that book is way too big for me. I would never survive. The story of Tecumseh is so epic though, I can't believe no one has made a movie about it yet. Even living in Tennessee now, there is a lake called Reelfoot Lake in western Tennessee, that didn't exist until The New Madrid Earthquake rerouted the Mississippi River and left that lake where it used to be. It blows peoples minds when I tell them how Tecumseh predicted that earthquake, and how it was supposed to be the call to arms for all the Native tribes from Texas to Michigan to go to war with the U.S. ...pretty dang epic.

This, and the return against Minnesota, are among my all time favorite sports highlights.
