Wearing the University’s original colors. Orange and Black.
Don't put that Cincinnati Bengals bad karma on this team.
The only good thing about The Game is winning it - Urban Meyer
I don't have any information, but I did see that black alternates for sale at a Dick's this week. I don't think they were leftover from the previous year either.
The blacks were fine, albeit about 8 years late on the trend, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why we have abandoned the National Championship Sugar Bowl and National Championship game jerseys.
I've seen so many "Aliexpress" / foreign knockoffs of those jerseys, I can't believe how dumb Nike (and OSU) are to not wear and sell those jerseys either full-time or as primary alternates. Frustrating.
Those jerseys were the best. They wore them early in the 2015 season too. I thought for sure they were going to be full-time at that point.
Elliott dots the eye, on this national championship win.
Ugh, those are the second worst, only exceeded in crapitude by the ridiculously bland gray and black uniform that was used in the Penn State comeback win that looks like the football version of the NY Yankees away unis. The black uniforms make us look like Louisville, or look like we think it is 2005 again.
It would honor the team that
"WON IT FIRST"
Hell make it a tradition
I want the camouflage version to come back.
"We'd wipe the floor with them" - Evan Spencer
Those definitely were amazing. I'd like to see those again as well.

"Year for what?"
Yep always liked those unis, but not the helmet.
You're too stupid to have a good time. -Dalton
TOTALLY AGREE! Uniforms are badass but that chrome helmet is God Awful
All chrome like my fleet on GTA5
Not a big fan either. At same time I don't think the traditional helmets would look great either...
I'd be good with a white version.
what about these helmets with the cocaine whites :D
"To Buckeye Nation: You have my word that I'm going to give everything I have to continue the tradition of excellence and winning that this program has enjoyed during its storied history."
Something like that would be pretty cool
I hate those unis.
I don't hate them, but I'm certainly not the fan of them that many people are. I do hate the helmet though. Not sure if it's the chrome or that ridiculously thick stripe down the middle.
"We gotta go win this next game and make the State of Ohio proud!"-UFM
I hope we get to wear the black unis at night this time.
"You're the patron saint of the totally effed" - Hot Tub Time Machine
Agreed. liked seeing the black unis more in the 2015 Penn State game then the 2018 Nebraska game. I love the black unis, but they look better at night than at noon
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
I've seen the same black alternates for sale online, listed as "2019 Game Jersey" so I'd assume they'll be back for this year. Just hope we get a proper night game to wear them if so!
One interesting thing of note: much of the new season's Nike swag (t-shirts, hats, hoodies, etc.) is available in either white, scarlet, or black. Same template/design as other schools, but very monochrome. Not sure if it's a stylistic choice from Nike or not. I know Day seems to like wearing black polos/quarter-zips/hats on the sideline, so I was wondering if that had any influence on the color palette.
I'm guessing we will be using the black uniform against Wisconsin on October 26. it's close to Halloween and it may very well be a night game.
And Toledo still sucks.
I wouldn't mind the Buckeyes figuring out how they could turn this get up into a football uniform
Lol. Nice.. and all the players could wear Green Jackets as warm ups on the sidelines..
“Right now, Michigan is not at the pinnacle of college football, and that’s all Urban Meyer cares about...He’s been there and knows what it takes to get there.”
All scarlet shirts and pants, black shoes, matte scarlet helmet with a grey/mirrored stripe.
Fresh, hot, stinky, somewhat moist, fire.
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Those are and will always be the best! LONG LIVE THE GREY SLEEVES!!!
Nothing will ever beat those. The road versions are just so damn clean
I am here for the same reason you are.
I'm all for tradition and I get the "you kids get off my lawn crowd!", but IF the recruits like the all blacks - I like the all blacks.
In a constant battle for top talent that sometimes hinges on the silliest things, I'll take any advantage I can get. I can't quote it, but I believe Urban said it gets the players amped, so he went along with it.
Buckeyes & Blue Jackets.
I couldn't care less what recruits think. If a player is choosing us because of some silly alternate uni, then see ya later.
Recruits do notice apparel. Ask K.J. Hill. Didn't like Under Armour, so he crossed that school from his list. Don't think he ever mentioned the school though.
"I was tired of trying to work my way around the back so I just ran him over.” -Joey Bosa, PSU 10/25/14
The Buckeye leaves on the pants...not sure how I feel about those, but I actually do like the Scarlet pants.
I think if you just kept the Red Block O, changed the jersey color to black, and got rid of everything else except for a nike swoosh the jersey it would look amazing. You could call them "The Woody" after Woody Hayes Famous Hat. Pants could be white to replicate his shirt that he wore. Black Helmet too.
Thanks, now I have cataracts
Well, I thought it was obvious this was a joke as it looked too silly to be serious. I should have italicized that image.
It still works if you just tilt your head to the left.
No thank you
These are so bad.
Need an all-white modern take on these ASAP
With the caps.
Maybe unpopular opinion here, but I liked the black jersey/grey pants combo they had the QBs in for the spring game better than the all black
If Ann Arbor is a whore, what's Harbaugh for going back to her?
Paging Earle's dark heart.
There's no points for second place, gentlemen.
The offseason is dark and full of uniform threads.
Here's another, if you're not afeared of the dark (or of bad writing).
They need to bring back the Chrome Unis... The Cocaine Whites, and Block O Scarlet's... The helmet set the unis off with the black facemask and neon green helmet stickers offsetting the monotonous pallette.
I wouldn't mind the traditional silver shimmer on the OG helmets, but can we please bring back the shiny pants too???
Between goals and achievement is discipline and consistency. That fire you have inside to do whatever you love is placed there by God. Now go claim it. ~ Denzel Washington
They need to make this happen:
Dark gray numbers instead of white
I like it. Whats with the wide strioe on the helmets of a lot of the alternate though. Normal stripe, please
I love the alternate template.
Cocaine white were amazing. The gray wolves themed uni’s from 2017 frustrated me at the time but they’ve grown on me to the point I think they’re actually pretty badass. Not a fan of the black uni’s at all. And for the love of God, please Block O NO MORE BLACKING OUT THE SHOE!!! It’s a horrible look and is a very weird attempt at re-creating PSU’s whiteout. We are Ohio State. We should be imitating no one.
Spend your days doing what you love.
The all grays have grown on me a little. I just felt like there needed to be more scarlet highlights around the numbers and on the helmet. There wasn't enough accent color to really make it pop -- and a lottile bit more would go a long way.
Blackout the Shoe is dumb to me, too. I'm much more a fan of a "gray haze or fog" -- and give everyone gray pom-poms or towels to really make it seem like a gray fog/haze is coming over the Shoe. I think it's alright to do a dress code/environment type of game. But the blackout seemed like a direct counter to PSU and that's not my favorite.
You win with people.
And so forth...

Any alternate uniform should absolutely have some scarlet and some gray........I like alternate uniforms, but I don't want to stray too far from Ohio State's unique school colors.
For the 150th anniversary of college football I wouldn't mind seeing Ohio State's threads used for the 125th anniversary back in '95:
Old school big numbers on the shoulders, classic stripes on the sleeves.
Well done. I love those uniforms.
“Being average means you are as close to the bottom as you are to the top.” John Wooden
Love the big numbers. Love the gray sleeves. Bring back the black cleats. Please
i bet ND misses its classic helmet FWIW. that new one they wear is ridiculous.
Biggest problem with the big numbers on the shoulders is that the shoulder pads are barely even there anymore.
If we must, do it on an off week. It is just bizarre to mess with one of the most iconic unis in CFB. And, "the kids like it" argument is total b.s. I guarantee that we did not land a single kid in this recruiting class, or any class, because we promised them "come here, and we'll give you an extra, totally arbitrary, jersey that you can keep."
My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)
Idk man. They do seem to choose the alternate unis pretty often in pictures on official visits.
Right? I would never argue that a recruit is going to choose tOSU based SOLELY on alternate uniforms; much in the way that they would never choose to become a Buckeye because the Horseshoe is a massive, beautiful stadium.
People are missing the point here. It's not about ONE THING. It's about the total package and if alternative uniforms are part of that package, the same way a nice weight room are, an on-site barber, a nutrition staff, etc...then why not? Uniforms have been changing since year one, there's really no point in fighting against the evolution.
Alabama has the #1 class every year because they let the kids wear alternate unis. Oh, wait....
Love the traditional uni’s but I like seeing alternates for one or two games per season, they add a little excitement and the recruits enjoy them.
Please NO alternative uniforms for The Game!! Let tradition carry the day....
Bucks fans in Mass
Bring back the oversized shoulder pads too!
