Michigan State wore its Nike Hyper Elite uniform last month at Indiana. Tuesday night, Ohio State will debut its version of the Nike uniform at rival Michigan.

Based on the responses from fans about Michigan State’s uniform, we should expect a mixed reaction Tuesday.

The good news: Nike outfits seven Big Ten schools, however it’s reported these are the only two schools that will sport the logo-ed look.

It’s a new design, but it’s also one Nike has tried before – and to negative press. Remember this 1999-2000 North Carolina uni?

Evidently, the company wants these teams to take a part of their home court (the midcourt logo, that is) on the road. Really.

Awful… they need the words not logos. Logos go on the pants not dead center of the shirt.

Yea I don’t like the Logo either. I think the logos can become really tack, when the lettering looks original and classy.
