Wisconsin subsequent welcomes THE Tree Nuts to the Kohl Heart.
That’s proper, Ohio State is making its method from the Buckeye state, with hopes of not being crushed.
Sorry, if that gif alternative made you mildly uncomfortable. However that was my intention.
Do you know that buckeye nuts are mildly poisonous and it’s important to take away them from their shells after which roast them in an effort to eat them? Looks like an terrible lot of labor for a nut. That should be why they will need to have made their uniforms look the way in which they did. You actually must work to take pleasure in them.
Anyway, again to the style…
As a reminder, we can be score the opposing threads on a scale of oh honey, no, to YAASS QUEEN.
Oh honey, no: Clearly, that is the worst score. If I have to clarify this to you, you’re in all probability sporting socks with sandals proper now, or a brown belt with black pants, both method, oh honey, no.
Ewww: Good strive, however no.
Werk it: You introduced it.
YAASS QUEEN: Better of the perfect. Your proverbial milkshake brings all of the proverbial boys to the yard.

The Buckeyes residence uniform options ‘Ohio State’ throughout the chest in purple, in an arched sample with the O, S and E being enlarged, with strains below the opposite letters. The quantity is in block textual content (bleh…), in purple with a gray define. The jersey additionally options purple across the collar of the jersey in addition to the arm holes.
Striping seems down either side of the jersey and continues all the way in which down the shorts as effectively. The striping is black, gray, purple, gray and black, which replicates the striping used on the Buckeye soccer helmets.
The Ohio State brand additionally seems on the precise legs of the shorts.
For my part, I feel that the Ohio State design on the uniform is a bit busy and overstated. I a lot want the Buckeye’s earlier design the place all of the textual content was the identical dimension. Nonetheless, I’ve a good higher concept for an improved residence uniform, bu we’ll get to that in a bit.
Residence uniform rating:
When taking part in away from the Buckeye state, Ohio State’s uniforms are a scarlet model of their residence uniforms. ‘Ohio State’ seems throughout the chest of the uniform in the identical style as the house uniform, however in white. The participant’s quantity is white as effectively, however retains the gray outlining.
The collar and arm holes encompasses a white border and the identical striping seems down the facet of the jersey and shorts, however in black, white, gray, white and a black.
Whereas I’m not a fan of the house white’s for OSU, I just like the scarlet highway uniforms a bit much less. The striping on the facet of the uniform may very well be improved, because the interior stripes are too shut in shade to 1 one other.
Simply with the house uniform, the design of the uniform is an excessive amount of and too busy and with the white design on the scarlet background, it makes it stick out extra, which amplifies the busy issue much more.
Away uniform rating:
The primary of Ohio State’s alternate uniforms that we are going to be looking at is their retro gray uniform.
‘Ohio State’ is listed on the entrance of the uniform, with the participant’s quantity seems between the 2 phrases. All textual content is purple, with white define.
White and purple strains seem on each the collar and the arm holes of the jersey after which once more on the backside of the shorts, the the 2 colours coming to a degree on the facet of the shorts, pointing on the Ohio State brand.
I like that Ohio State has launched an alternate uniform that differs from their two residence uniforms in coloration and design, however this uniform simply falls flat for me. The usage of block textual content brings down the uniform and doesn’t let or not it’s what it may, if a special model of textual content was used.
The second of Ohio State’s alternate uniforms is a scarlet uniform, that strays from the pack and as an alternative has ‘Buckeyes’ throughout the chest of the uniform in a cursive font, which is white, with a black define. The participant’s quantity nonetheless seems in a block font, in white, with a black border, however the differing fonts works on this case.
The uniform options white, gray and black stripes across the collar, in addition to the arm holes of the jersey and the identical three stripes could be discovered alongside the underside of the shorts.
Simply as with their different alternate uniform, the stripes on the shorts come to a degree alongside the facet of the shorts, however as an alternative of getting the Ohio State brand, they’ve the ‘O’ brand.
I don’t know if it’s simply because I’m so underwhelmed by the remainder of Ohio State’s assortment of uniforms, however I like this look. The usage of cursive on the jersey actually units it other than the opposite uniforms and offers a strong possibility for Ohio State.
For my part, this must be their important highway uniform and a white model of it must be made as their residence uniform.
Ohio State launched these uniforms final night time forward of their matchup with Wisconsin in the present day and I’m… not impressed.
Their third alternate uniform is a black model of their residence and away uniforms, with purple accents, as you’ll be able to see.
I’m all for colleges having alternate uniforms, however after they introduce simply one other uniform that’s only a carbon copy of their different uniforms, it simply comes off as lazy.
I’m additionally all for colleges introducing black uniforms, even when it isn’t one of many main colours of the varsity, however with this design it’s simply too busy. They might be higher off to introduce a black model that’s extra minimalist.
I might have cherished to see a black model of the Buckeye’s alternate uniforms with the cursive ‘Buckeyes’ throughout the chest.
