Clothes Call: Ohio State to wear 1916 throwbacks for one game


Clothes Call: Ohio State to wear 1916 throwbacks for one game

Do you remember the great Chic Harley?

Well, 100 years ago, during the 1916 college football season, Ohio State great Chic Harley earned the first of his three All-America honors as a Buckeye.

Today, Ohio State announced it will wear an alternate uniform during a game this season in honor of its first three-time All-American, who led the school to its first football conference championship in 1916.

Ohio State has not specified which game they will wear the throwback uniforms.

The crew at @11W tweeted out a photo of the throwback uniforms the Buckeyes will be sporting, which you can see at the top of this post.

There were mixed feelings on the all-black uniforms the Buckeyes wore last year, but these have a very old-school feel to them with the scarlet tops and the grey stripes. My guess is that long-time OSU fans will be excited about this new look.

What do you think, Buckeye fans?
