I like the design of those, '67 jerseys. I like the gray numbers more than the white.
Is this your post, your son's post or those rascal pa cousins again?
Are these being sold anywhere?
I wasn't keen on the gray #s or the black names. But I wouldn't mind dusting those uniforms off for big games, the way ND used to break out the green jerseys before everyone started selling out.
What's our record in games wearing flashback/pro combat uniforms? At least 3-0...
21-10 over scUM 2009...37-7 over scum 2010...33-29 over Wisconsin 2011...26-21 over scUM 2012...was 2009 the first year?
I agree I love those jerseys and wouldn't mind them being permanent! But don't expect a lot of ppl to agree especially a lot of the older buck here or traditionalist.
I'm both an older buck and a traditionalist but I don't mind wearing a throwback/pro combat once a year.
But have Alabama, LSU, UGA, Florida, Texas, USC, Oklahoma or ND messed with their winning formula? Several have had special unis (see ND's silly leprechaun helmet this year) but no one's changed their core fundamental design.
If something works, you don't fix it.
I loved the Uni's but wasnt a huge fan of the chrome buckeye leafs. I say use the regular leafs.

I'm older and a traditionalist. Without tradition we're Oregon.
With that said I don't mind change, but at the expense of our identity I don't like it. Plus I just don't think they looked very good. If they want to do this once a year for the Nike$$$$s then I'll deal with it.
i loved the jerseys. thought they looked great and really enjoyed how the leaves looked even more green.
I also really liked those jerseys and helmets yesterday. Looked awesome!
So do I.
When I look at them, I don't think retro jerseys. I see modern.
They're less of a sharp departure from our typical jerseys than the ones we wore in '09, '10 and last season vs Wisconsin.
But what I want more than anything is for the jerseys to return to their original scarlet tone as opposed to the more red orange, light red color. On my set, those and the field looked like a reddish pink tone. Don't like that at all.
Not only were the jerseys on target, the helmets were as well.
I didn't like them. What I didn't like was the color of the names. Makes it hard to read being so dark. Otherwise I don't care much. Can't ask a guy to memorize who plays what based on a number. I need those damned names.

Well, i'm also an "Older Buck", but if you think about it, and if you don't like change, then we'd be wearing jerseys similar to these. We've "changed" our jerseys about 5 times in last 20 years. I like the old jerseys that had a lot more gray involved, like yesterdays. I don't necessarily care about the chrome helmets, I'm guessing the recruits like those though. I just like the color combo of yesterdays jersey.
If we have to be tortured with these things, then save them for some second tier game. Never for the Michigan game.
I have said on here many times before that I don't care if they play in jock straps or pink laced panties as long as they WIN, but being at the game I DO NOT like the grey numbers and names because it is very diffacult to see from any distance at all. TV might be great but not live at the game.
I agree robo,I also like the helmets too. Sharp!!!
Good point maci. I was at my first OSU- UM game. C-Deck seats, made it hard to see lol
