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.

I agree with the OP. I had wanted a playoff for decades. Every other division has had working playoffs for a long time. The nonsense about playoffs diminishing the regular season games and now if they ever expand that will diminish regular season is silly.

Conference Championship games are for making money and that is it.

I am ok with 4 but think 8 would be better. Especially since some schools are getting the most love. I know Ohio States ugly loss to Purdue hurt but I can not see how the committee thought Oklahoma was so much better than Ohio State. Georgia being ahead of Ohio State didnt matter since neither made playoffs but how the heck did they get ranked ahead?

2015 was the worst snub of Ohio State. That was the best team in the country. Lost a last second game on a FG. Did Stanford with 2 losses end up ahead of the Buckeyes?

I doubt 8 teams is on the way soon but the reasons and old narrative about regular season should not stop an 8 team playoff.

I think they should have worn these all year long to honor the 1968 National Champs. Cooper did it in 1993 for the 25th anniversary.

Well actually they should be the permanent uniforms.

I am not the kind of person who is afraid for my team Ohio State. I would much rather have the chance to win it all. The Rose Bowl would be no big deal to me. The playoffs is always where Ohio State should aim for.

I agree with you Buck298

The recruits love them line is total BS. Since there are so many teams wearing so many alternate unis. If only one program did it such as Oregon used to do it makes sense.

Boring, Does anybody connected with Ohio State watch college football? They should take notice of how many teams have been wearing black for blacks sake. It is overdone. And I dont fall for the black is in Ohio States color palette. I would rather see throwbacks that were actually worn in the past. Or an all scarlet uniform or a better looking all gray. The last 2 alternates were not good and  this is nothing to be excited about.

Surely OSU can do better than copying every other school with the black.
