Jalen Rose Once Wore Ohio State Gear And Every Designer Ever

Jalen Rose has kept much of the cool that he had as part of Michigan's Fab Five in the early '90s, and even managed to bring it into his career as an ESPN analyst. But there was a time when he was so uncool, he wore Ohio State gear.

I really love how '80s this picture is. Everyone's wearing satin, there's a Pistons jacket and a Georgetown jacket, the kid in the Adidas shirt looks like a miniature cross between DMC and Chuck D with glasses, and an 11-year-old crouching low is making a "gang" "sign" or something.

As for the heresy of Rose wearing Ohio State duds, uh, well ... no, he grew up in Detroit, scratch that ... I guess he liked red?

... #hiphop?
