Ohio State will once again be wearing a specially designed uniform by Nike this season. This week Nike confirmed which nine schools will receive the popular Pro Combat uniforms, with the Buckeyes joining Michigan State, Army, Navy, Boise State, Georgia, LSU, Stanford and Oregon (as if the Ducks need one). When Ohio State takes the field against Wisconsin this season, will they be dressed in all black?
The above image was shared on Twitter by Mychael Harris (@BigMychal), who shared the image posted on Buckeye Planet. Nike has not released the actual images for this year’s Pro Combat line, and it is unlikely that an image would have been leaked this early on. Remember, Purdue was thought to be getting a Pro Combat uniform as early as January, with one image making its way to Sports By Brooks. Purdue is not one of the schools getting a special uniform this season.
Michigan State fans are also wondering what their uniforms will look like.
Back to the all-black idea. Is it a bit ironic that the program with the black eye would dress in all black? Is it an indication or a symbol of Ohio State’s future? It is certainly much different from last year’s design, which paid homage to the Buckeyes of the past. Who knows.
Now, about that Boise State all-white uniform…
We should find out what all of the uniforms will look like in August.
