Jersey / Uniform Discussion (OSU)

    I dunno. I'm not clear on whether Riddell (I think they provide our helmets ordinarily) would be willing to make the material and finish changes that Nike dictated. Or whether those changes would dictate a different model of helmet.

    My overriding concern with uniforms is whether they offer adequate (and I'd prefer state-of-the-art) performance, measured most especially by cranial protection when it comes to helmets. Regardless of our preferences relative to design, I hope we agree on these metrics.

    Hated the old gray stripes from old so glad that they went with the helmet/leg stripe on the sleeves. That is the stripe, not those ghetto walmart looking gray stripes. Never understood the love for those hideous things.

    Loved the helmet and that huge stripe. Looked sharp. Black facemask looked sleek too. I like white numbers over gray but that's being a bit of a stickler.

    I liked today's alternate uniforms because we still looked like Ohio State.

    Thought they looked good once the Buckeye leaves showed up on them. Wouldn't mind those as an alternate helmet every once in a while

    I thought they looked great. They looked like the original was just altered a bit. Then again, I like most college alts.
  6. Alternate jersey's still undefeated!!

    I really only raise a stink when the uniforms affect the on field production. Yesterday, it was clear that those cleats Braxton was wearing were not working well. I counted at least 4 different times where he lost footing. I was really hoping he would come out in the second half with different cleats on.

    In other news. I heard they're starting off next year with a really cool variation of the jersey.

    My first impression is that I love how clean they are. Lets make this our "one-and-only" home uniform!

    Was not a fan of the black names on the back of the jerseys.

    I know Nike loves to cram black into many of their alternate uniforms but that was not the best place for it.

    Thought the names should have been the same color as the numbers.

    Was thinking this as well. The black was hard to read and didn't go with anything else, just looked like an afterthought or like they were told they had to fit black into the uniform somehow.
