The Ohio State Buckeyes are among the teams getting some Nike Pro Combat uniforms for this season. To be completely honest...they're not the greatest. They're not atrocious, but compared to some of the other Pro Combat uniforms that Nike has done for college football teams, they just don't quite stack up. First, let's take a look at the uniform.
I can't be alone in liking the shads of red and pewter on the normal Ohio State uniforms a little better than this. It's okay, but it's not an improvement on the regular uniform. It might be possible to convince me otherwise, but I can take or leave this one. The helmet, though? We're going to have problems.
The numbers on the side and the red stripe down the middle are bad. Absolutely a downgrade from the regular Ohio State helmets. Your other work gets you a pass on this one, Nike, but this isn't your best. Check out the entire Ohio State Pro Combat uniform gallery on Nike Football's facebook page.
