Oh boy, here we go again.
Each season go ahead and have whatever crappy alt uni you want for one game.
But keep the classic scarlet and gray.

HS

Same here, Savage. These have always been my favorite uniforms--especially the whites. 

Although if we were to make them permanent, I'd prefer to make the shoulder numbers white instead of black on our home jerseys like we had in the early 2000s.

Unpopular opinion:

I don’t like the non-matching gray shoulder stripes. I just don’t. 

The down vote is a mighty tool. Use it on idiots, not differing opinions.

This would be awesome. How have we not done that yet?

Did the school play football in Orange and Black? 

Football started 20 years after the university was founded. My understanding of the story is that Orange and Black were voted on but someone in the same meeting spoke up about them being Princeton’s colors, so they went with second choice Scarlet and Gray because no one else had adopted the combo yet.

How long were we Orange and Black? Did the Buckeyes actually compete in any sport in those colors?

HS
Smitty516's picture

From what I understand, we weren’t orange and black very long. I don’t think we ever played sports with Orange and black, the first football uniforms were scarlet and gray and designed to basically replicate the baseball uniforms.

HS

Could you imagine Ohio St, Oregon St and Oklahoma St all wearing black and orange? 

HS

I think while a novel idea, it would lack the connection to recruits to really be interesting.  Do we really want to look like the bengals or even the littlest sister OSU (OkSU) school?  or resemble syracuse or bgsu or even the littlest sister OSU (OkSU) school?

If they suit up in black and orange I may throw up in my mouth a little. Just stop with all the alternate BS. We have one of the best unis in the land. Leave it be.

I didn't love the PSU Wolf ones (didn't hate them either) but I did like the road version.

The RED kicks were a nice touch by some

HS

I FOR SURE preferred the road version. The white top, white pants, grey helmet (scarlet stickers), coupling that with scarlet cleats? Give me!

RunEddieRun1983's picture

I have been LOVING this idea for a few years. It'd just be so rad to see an all scarlet alternate jersey. There's always the chance they muck it up and not make it as cool as it could be (kind of felt like that's what they did with the all-blacks, just some choices made that I wouldn't have made but overall they're not bad), but an attempt at them would be sweet.

Gray sleeves. 

You can put them on black, white or gray shirts.  But just give me gray sleeves. 

RIP Earle Bruce uniforms.  Looks like Wisconsin. 

HS
cmented36's picture

Some one should photo shop the normal white buckeye leaf stickers onto the matte black helmet...guarantee it looks better than the stupid red leaves. Sometimes you gotta wonder who the hell is designing/approving some of the uniforms now... Also would look cleaner with a bright white number outline instead of grey... if you're gonna do black uniforms make them look as good as they can at least. 

HS
RJerome-15Alum's picture

When you say cleaner, are you saying the grey outline makes them look "dirty" or just like complete filth?

Also, here are the white buckeye leaf stickers for your viewing pleasure...

HS
cmented36's picture

It's more throwing the random grey outline for the numbers is an unnecessary departure from the rest of the uniform where grey isn't used. Plus white accents on black just makes things pop. It's a minor change that just looks better. It's kind of like, if you're already ignoring the school colors to do a black uniform just go for it instead of trying to incorporate a little grey just to incorporate it. 

HS
RJerome-15Alum's picture

Gotcha. Well for what it's worth, black is actually an official school color now along with scarlet and grey. And white.

HS
LoudBuckeyeGirl's picture

Shiny pants and big numbers for me. 

The bobbleheads hate the offseason.

HS
Iwannagobacktoohiostate's picture

Oregon’s 2019 Jersey’s prove the conference and Nike embroidery can be on the shoulder vs chest...thus bigger numbers.  

Oregon’s numbers are ridiculous but OSU’s block numbers could gain more size by getting the other crap off the chest and onto the shoulder (or gone altogether.  Who cares about 150 years). 

Yup...it’s a bye week and we have it pretty good problems to have.

Miss the thick black stripes on the pants too. 

HS
kmp10's picture

Yes... of ALL the Nike/OSU tweaks and clusters, making the black on the pant stripe (and helmet stripe since the Hayes era) thinner was the most dumbfounding. It just makes the uni, altho still essentially the same, somehow less than it was before... which was the best uniform in college football. It's still sharp, but the tweaks -- the thin black stripe instead of the thick black stripe, and the elimination of the gray sleeves on the jerseys -- are classic cases of can't leave well enough alone.

HS
Brohio's picture

I get there your opinion is yours and that’s fine but you really think it’s dumbfounding that Ohio State just decided to have the exact same stripe down the helmet, sleeves and pants? Seems like a pretty logical conclusion to come to. 

HS
kmp10's picture

Yes, I think that the black against the gray (pants) and silver (helmet) is a big part of what makes the uniform unique and sharp. If the helmet and pant stripe has to be the same width, then widen the black on the helmet to match the pant stripe. They decided to go the opposite direction.

They can stop, but I hadn’t heard that they were planning to. 

Perhaps, with zero new ideas in almost two full years, they already have?

OK, "leafs" was bugging me, so I looked it up and it should be leaves. But then, leaves was bugging me too. So, leaves it is - I'll try to remember that next time.

I was actually very excited when they busted them out for the Michigan game that year.

HS
SilverBullets_PHX's picture

Same!  I thought it was a really good look.  Might have been the best alternate uniform look.  Pretty subtle really.  They wore the title uniforms (which are the best unis they have) and the helmet was a subtle enough difference that they still looked like the Bucks.  Wish they had stickers on them though.  Would be interesting to see what the Scarlet stickers would look like on them with that pairing.

Like 'em or hate 'em, better get used to the black jerseys. Urban already said last year he'd like it to become tradition to wear them in front of a "blackout" crowd on an annual basis. The anti-PSU white out, if you will. The fact it happened without him at the helm this year makes me think it stuck. Just no more nooners with these please! Pick the game they're worn early on for a designated night game in the preseason. 

HS
Sav45age's picture

So you think this black getup is going to be OSU’s go to alternate for the foreseeable future as an annual thing?

HS

Id be ok with that, but maybe simplify them. Straight up black and white numbers looks a whole lot cleaner in my book. 

HS

I like the black uniforms once a year, but please stop the black out. Stadium looks empty. The exact opposite of what you want. All scarlet and give out grey Pom poms to everyone.

HS
BuckTD's picture

The stadium looked full just black. Please no poms. They tried them a few games when I was in school and they weren’t really used. Leave them to TTUN, Penn State, and the SEC.

HS

Chrome domes + gray sleeves. Please, and thank you!

Also, if the black is going to be a regular thing, make them more tOSU-like. I like the idea of a black alternate, but the execution of the current version leaves a LOT on the table for improvement.

HS

Agreed. I like the idea of black alts but I don’t like how they are currently being executed.

I have noticed that a lot of schools (even Penn State) have worn a throwback alternate uniform this season to celebrate 150 years of college football. This means Ohio State will likely wear one too. I doubt they choose one they have done before even though I did love those. Lebron wore his custom edition to the 2014 national championship. Since the Tressel era we have been wearing throwbacks/alternate jerseys for the TTUN game so that is my prediction

HS
cmented36's picture

So far these have been the best "Alternate" Uniforms. This is considering the gray sleeve (Championship) jerseys more a modern throwback which I also think should be the normal uniform now. I still remember when they switched to the small helmet stripe on the shoulders...it still looks weird. 

HS

These are so MONEY! One of the best / cleanest uniforms they’ve ever worn

Anything but the cannonball helmets.  I think the grays home and away are cool.   Black unis are okay. 

But the cannonball helmets?  Don't get it.

If I'm not mistaken, they sold off those jerseys and helmets at a public event a number of years ago - so those chrome helmets are no more.

Did fans like me critique them into submission? 

Yes, Nike and the University listened to you. They ignored the fact that the players and recruits love them. 

HS

Nike doesn't care if the players or recruits love them. Nike only cares if people buy them.

HS
Sav45age's picture

I have looked forward to the release of the alternative uniform designs every year for the past decade.

I’m not anti alternates, and am happy for the players who get excited about them. I haven’t liked all the kits they’ve come up with, but that’s not what this is about.

I’m curious as to why they haven’t designed anything new for two years? Recruits must really love stuff that was fresh 4 years ago?

I know football players work hard, and a new uniform feels like a reward, but the blacks are old news.

I definitely agree with this.  I don't know how I feel about scarlet pants.  I've always loved the all-gray uniforms the basketball team used to wear often (that have sadly disappeared), and I think that it would be awesome if something similar was created for football. 

I'd even be open to seeing what an all-white stormtrooper look would be like with our traditional jersey style.  Scarlet pants just remind me too much of other teams.

HS

I love the jersey and helmet! Don’t love the scarlet pants, but I would support this look for a game.

Would recruits and players love them? Yes.

Would OSU fans buy that jersey? Yes.

Probably depends more on the university than anything. I like the black uniforms and the alternates. I like the standard uniforms too, but never got the fuss about the alternates. Who cares? The players play in them, so long as they are fine, we can deal with it.

HS
AZBuck LHC's picture

I've never been a big fan alternate uniforms, but the black uniforms appear to be a popular option(They've used them three times) with the players, recruits and many fans. I wouldn't mind seeing them use the black in other combinations(Black pants with traditional white jersey or black jersey with traditional gray pants).

I think a new combo would be pretty cool would 

Helmet - Chrome- like super ass shiny chrome with traditional red stripe and two small black ones and metallic shiny green buckeye leaves 

White tops with Red Letters and shiny metallic grey sleeves

White pants with Red stripe bordered by two small black ones. 

White socks and white shoes

OR 

Helmet - super metallica shiny gray, one red stripe down the middle that is kind of fat with a BIG Metallic green buckeye leaf on the left side and Numbers in black on right side

top - Red top with black numbers 

bottoms- Grey bottoms with black stripe down the side and Block O on right hip flexor 

Socks Black socks with black cleats that have white swoosh or white block O on outside of cleat

I saw an article on 247 about the idea of changing the tradition to be similar to the UCLA-USC game where both teams wear their home uniforms every year. Never really thought of this before but seems like it would be cool to at least try it one year and see how it is received.
