Now just go back to the sleeve stripes from the 90's.

I'll never understand the love those get. They're ripoffs of the Steelers' stripes that would never work on a modern template and don't match the rest of the uniform. They have the right idea with their current sleeve stripes - they just need a grey outline or grey sleeves.

First of all, they're not a ripoff of the Steelers's stripes and anyways they predate the Steelers, but nice try. They work as well on a modern template as the current stripes do. They have historical meaning. Every element of the uniform doesn't need to match the rest of the uniform. In fact, you match every element and you get an overload of matching elements in your face (Florida Gators, for example).

They were an important big splotch of gray on a jersey for a school whose colors are scarlet and gray. You wear a red Ohio State jersey around campus now and there's no gray to be found. It's a far better, more elegant solution than gray sleeves.

Iowa has been using the same pattern and the Steelers are using it on the same template the Buckeyes are now using. I preferred the old stripe pattern but the current pattern does look better on that template. I just want those huge shoulder numbers back.

And it looks awful. With few exceptions, nearly half the stripe gets cut off.

Ohio State did an excellent job of adapting to modern, shorter sleeves, and their current stripes look appropriately classic. There's no reason for them to switch to a bigger, clunkier striping pattern that won't look even close to uniform across every player's jersey.

But they didn't rip off the Steelers.

And they never applied their stripes to the sleeves the way the Steelers do (which is the worst way to do it). They always applied them the way the Browns, Lions, and Iowa does so they did look uniform across every player's jersey.

Excuse me if this Old Dominion helmet has already been posted, but it's a new example of Chrome decal on a matte helmet.

This "logo on one side, number on the other side" trend needs to stop now. It's idiotic.

I totally agree LightsOut. I hated those stripes, and that ugly number font. I think what we have now is great, and the new pants stripe just makes it better. Coming from an Ohio State fan.

all i'm seeing is and E, a J, and a C. Yes, I know it's supposed to be some sort of bird, but that's all I get out of it.

It's an odd looking logo, I see a big J, but it looks good on a helmet.

I know UNT isn't a big deal at all, but would've been nice if they could've matched the uniform and helmet decal shade: 9130916.jpeg
