I thought they would wear the alt. Uni for this game. Yes. I will be spending my allowance on official Nike.

Not to completely ruin these with a comparison before we see them in live action (Personally, I actually like them quite a bit), but these are incredibly similar to Iowa State's throwbacks they wore against Iowa in 2013.

I like them. Something new, er old, but new again.

Swag.

I'm not finished!  Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse.

Nice. I am headed out to the Old Dominion game that night. IF anyone wants to trade spots, let me know.

I'd love if they'd let a guy like J.T. wear ol' number 47 again for this game! Can't wait to see these as they take it too Nebraska!

Touche. How about Kwon then?! We KNOW 47 looks good on a linebacker!

Huh, I thought it was retired.

I believe Urban asked permission from the Harley family to promise it to Hilliard

Is that the thing now that there are so many retired numbers that they'll unretire them if a player and coach ask the family if it's okay? Seems like the respectful thing to do.

How is that a college QB? I've seen 9-year olds with better throwing form.

Kitties aren't supposed to smell like cigarettes, they're supposed to smell like kitties.

Kudos! My sentiments exactly.

The form in that picture tells it all. But that kid was a hell of a player. If he had come to Ohio State, he probably would be an NFL receiver. JMHO.

But what will the helmets look like? They need to make those stripes sewn on and not printed.

There's no points for second place, gentlemen.

I think a matte gray helmet with the traditional scarlet/white/black helmet stripe would look pretty sweet. It would match the matte look of the rest of the uni.

I have heard rumblings that they are working on a faux leather helmet? I really hope not. Any other mock-ups?

The redskins wore that one. No proof that OSU will use this one.

From ohiostateuniforms.com:

While the helmet has not yet been released, a source tells us that Hydro Graphics Inc. — the company that produced Ohio State’s chrome lid — is working on a ‘leather’ helmet.

Definitely no proof, but it is the same company, HGI, that did are chrome helmets. I want to reiterate, regardless I definitely do not want to see faux leather helmets!

They also did the Texas A&M ones not too long ago. They looked much better. 

You better get prepared, because no matter what you'd like, they're coming!

I love the choke look too. The silver bullets look faster in them in my own subjective opinion.

Stripes, a subtle nod to Keith Williams' future attire. Very nice but hoping no faux leather lids.

Don't let a Nebraska fan see this comment. They'll bash our entire fanbase and act like 3 DUI's isn't all that serious.

Would have been cool against one of the two "oldest" teams, Rutgers.

These would be appropriate and appreciated.  Just saying.

I'm missing the connection. Chic didn't wear these, and last time OSU did, it was against Wisconsin, not Nebraska.

Call me a traditionalist. The 1968 Buckeye uni's for ever would suit me fine. At least Penn State has throwback old school togs for every game.

Nice! Like em a lot. Just hoping they don't do a faux leather helmet. Unis are enough to commemorate the anniversary.

Dibs on flying an A-10 warthog in the flyover for Military Appreciation.

I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.

although flying the thunderbolt is cool, too bad we can't have it fire. when in action using it's 30mm cannon, it makes that brrrrp warthog sound.

sad to day that the DoD was slate it for shutdown and no longer use it. It has probably the most roles that one single platform can do. Glad common sense shut down the shut down. lol.

Will someone start the petition "Just say no" to those God awful ugly helmets! I can live with the uni for 1 game!

HS

Why on earth they've decided to not wear the traditional helmet, which by the Nebraska game will be thick with Buckeye leaves, but are instead donning a "faux leather helmet" is beyond unfathomable. Screwing with the uniform is bad enough, but wearing that leather abomination instead of the best helmet in all of football is just simple minded.

Because they are going all in on the 1916 concept?

I am fine with a faux leather look as that is how it should be. But the pants should be khaki or tan also. I am not crazy about the numbers but realize the rules specify it.

I like the idea they are honoring the Chic Harley era.

Start a petition against a helmet that nobody has seen yet?

Maybe let's wait a bit before getting the petition together   

HS

Andrew has confirmed that a faux leather helmet is definitely a part of this. Probably a different look than what was posted earlier though. I'm cool with it.

I kinda wish the Chic unis had been slated for Northwestern, but this Harley fan nods his approval.

That would have been a better idea. And the Northwestern could have worn these.

Did anyone notice the Northwestern game description reads "Scarlet Out"? Does this mean all scarlet colored uniforms?

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

No, it means fans are supposed to all wear scarlet, to "Scarlet out The Shoe."

Is yearly alternate uniforms a contract requirement with Nike? I realize these uniforms are a cash cow for both Nike and the University, but do they have to do this every year? As far as this uniform goes, its no worse then previous throwbacks, but I would prefer to see these early in the year before the conference schedule starts and only use are traditional uniform for conference and playoff games. I know most people disagree with me......just my opinion.

Not a fan of the black border around the numbers. They should have made the vertical stripes black and borderless numbers imho.

I'm still stoked that Ohio State is actually wearing Chic Harley throwbacks.  Definitely going to buy it when it goes on sale.

Meh. I guess it'll look cool under the lights in what could be a pretty big game with the stadium rockin'. Thery're doing it whether we like it or not, so may as well get on board.

I think they're great. I am a traditionalist. I like Ohio State's uniforms the way they are. However, how much more traditional can you get than wearing a uniform from 100 years ago? It isn't like this is just making something up. This is to honor the man who first brought victory over the TUN! We gotta recognize!
