In case you hadn’t heard, it sounds like Ohio State is going to wear some throwback uniforms for their annual tilt with Michigan on November 21. We saw a blurry camera pic of the jersey yesterday and scratched our heads; it hardly looked like a throwback, just another future-tron white jersey that are all over college football these days.
ELEVEN WARRIORS appears to have found the rest of the uniform, pictured above. Now, the “throwback” stuff comes into play. The font for the numbers on the helmet seems to have been stolen directly from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ current uniforms, but the pants are old school to the core and it all looks exactly the way you’d want a throwback to look, really.
11W cautions us that this is still all unofficial and that the official unveiling isn’t until November 15. Still, it seems very unlikely that this is all a ruse; it’s all branded properly (right down to the “O” shield in front), and everything is in its right place. We’d be a little disappointed if they didn’t come out in these on the 15th, really; what do you think?
Wonder if they’re still doing the Buckeye Leaf stickers.
