I wish they could have done a jersey patch instead. But that is a nice honor.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Me too, but I wonder if it's a timing issue. Getting 100 patches made and sewn on short notice might be hard.
Just get Auburn's uniform guy up here to stitch them on down on the sideline..
Rock those Black Uniforms, with the SAME standard helmet, and I will cosign that as the only appropriate time, that uniform should be worn.

What black unis? I have seen concept ones, but as far as I know, no black unis have ever been mass produced.
You are entitled to you own opinion, not your own facts.
Do you have a source on this?
The person responsible for toes clearly wanted you to stub them.
Good Lord. They're already wearing the classic scarlet home jersey. No black uni talk the rest of the year!
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
Nice touch...classy move.
Yes! I knew we would do something for him
Solid tribute. RIP #53.
I had heard that they might put a black 53 on one side of the helmet, but what they have done is a nice tribute.
Such a tragic story...
This is appropriate. Hopefully the NCAA doesn't crush it for violating a dumb rule.
High and tight boo boo
Notice how it's slightly covering up the warning sticker? What do you want to bet... Ugh they'd better not! NCAA rules suck!
If memory serves the last time the team wore a sticker in memoriam of someone it was Maria Tiberi last year, which is also where the photo on this 'mockup' is from.
Glad they're doing something to honor Kosta this Saturday. He is still part of the Buckeye family.

53, 16, 5
Let's go Bucks
I would love to see someone on the DLine wear number 53 as well.
You win with people
Michael Bennett perhaps??
I totally agree with that one, Bennett would be a great fit.
Glad to see they're honoring him.

Kyle "blood on the field" Kalis... 0-5
I was waiting for this. I am also hoping for a moment of silence (but realize this is not a home game, so it might not happen).
read the last line they are doing it
Appropriate gesture for Kosta.
Never noticed the scarlet #5 for Braxton. Will they add a scarlet #16 for JT?
“Don’t fear criticism. The stands are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing. Down on the field are the doers, they make mistakes because they attempt many things.”
Pretty sure this is a photo shop of the stickers they wore last year for M.T. I would guess this was Braxton's helmet.
I think it would be cool, but very unlikely, for every helmet to have a black "53" on the right side a la Alabama.
Some might say that's too much but I say what is the value you put on someone's life?

Win it for 53!
Rest easy big fella!
2002, Desert Heat & a Crystal Football....like it was yesterday. *12 years later* -> UNDISPUTED!
Run out onto the field with the captains carrying his jersey..that would be awesome!
Is not the Death of a team member and his memory enough......... It's what you do FOR that memory that counts KK(Team) 35 - Off Wisconsin 17 Final and then ON TO BEAT BAMA............ OUR HONOR TO DEFEND, WE WILL FIGHT TO THE END FOR OHIO ...............................OOOOOOOOOOOO HHHHHHHHHHHH
Upon this Rock, I build my house....and Let no man put asunder
Good move on the honor. Damn, I just love our helmets and stickers. Are we wearing home or road colors on Saturday?
Wear it proudly. With respect. Honor.
