I knew when LSU was pulling away from the committees beloved Georgia that LSU would jump Ohio State. It was wrong to do it but oh well.

Comment 08 Dec 2019

I hope so. I wish they would be the regular uniform. Side note, Ohio State has not won a National Championship with the current sleeves. Earle changed to them in 1979 and they lost to USC. 2002 Buckeyes win it all. They changed to current ones and lost in 2006 and 2007.

The 2014 Champs wore them in playoffs of course.

In 1957 they wore them in cold weather games.  They simply look better and are more historic going back the late 1940s.

Ohio State leads the series 20-14. They beat the Lions 20 times.

Penn State fans thought they would come in and dominate the Big Ten.  Haha the Lions have been a nonfactor in Big Ten play. They thought they were something when they were the Beast of the East beating up on those eastern cupcakes. 

The Lions fans to this day think the Big Ten is out to get them and the Big Ten refs are part of some conspiracy to keep them down.

They always have and shockingly to this day act Holier Than thou. The PSU program has had the ugliest scandal in college football history and they have the gall to rip Ohio State.

They have the ugliest uniforms in college football.

Go Buckeyes.

Great job Matt, I love beating Ohio State beating Penn State as much as the Buckeyes have done.

I emailed him a while back and asked him about the uniforms. If anybody knows me they know I love the history of the uniforms as well as the great football tradition. He emailed me back a couple times. What an amazing man. He is a Buckeye and a man everybody can be proud of.

SuomiBuckeye, That is true about not being good teams during those 2 years. But for me it is about the look or the red helmet period. I think the black unis look fine. I just know that black is so overdone in college football. Practically every team has done it. I watch a lot of college football and I see black unis way too often. It is nothing to get  excited about since Ohio State has worn them before. I think the red helmet and that uniform would look great in the current helmet style of today. black for blacks sake is overdone.

Avery I understand and I enjoy the write up. I am just sharing the information. I love the history of the Buckeye uniforms and helmets along with the great tradition of winning football games for Ohio State. I like old game photos so here is one from 1967 Northwestern game in color. If you look closely over Rudy Hubbard # 41s body you can see a Buckeye on the red helmet.

This one has Dave Brungard and I am trying to figure out who Ohio State was playing. Brungard from Youngstown later transferred to Alabama. So he played for Woody and Bear Bryant.

The clip from the 1919 game worked for me. It is short but great quality. Chic does a dropkick near the end.  Then note the ref on ground before he hops up and signals good for a placement kick.

Maybe Ohio State can wear 1919 replica jerseys this year. The jerseys for the 1919 game were slightly different with the friction strips in front.

There is Chic from the 1919 game film I posted.

The video is actually not from the 1919 game but is from the 1923 game that Michigan won. I posted about this in the past. I have studied Ohio State uniform history thoroughly. In the clip shown it is Michigan guy scoring a TD. Ohio State wore socks with 2 stripes from the early 1910s up until 1928. I will post the actual 1919 game film. It was better quality. Below are images from the 1923 game Note Ohio State socks.
