Are Alternate Jerseys Coming for The Game?

Rumors have been swirling for a few days (by many people) that Ohio State has alternate jerseys in the works and if the rumors are true, they will be making their debut for the Michigan game.

I know around these parts, we are not big fans of the recent alternate jersey trend, because most the time they are ugly, but that is the price schools pay for signing multi-million dollar contracts with the apparel companies. However, we will be even less fans of the idea, if they are trotted out for The Game and we can't think of any good that could come from that situation.

What are your feelings? The link below provides the rumored design and word is, they're coming with all white helmets.

UPDATE: Gene Smith and Shelly Poe are both saying it's not going to happen.

UPDATE (x2): OSU issued a press release announcing they WILL be wearing the alternates after all, which they profess honor the 1954 National Championship team.
