There are some rumors (completely unconfirmed) making the rounds on the Internet that the Ohio State Buckeyes will be receiving new uniforms for the 2013 college football season. While there are no rumors from reliable sources out there just yet, it is something fun worth discussing as we wait for the start of the season. The rumor first surfaced on the college football subreddit.

What does the rumor suggest?

Here is the reddit post:

I have been told by people at Nike that they will feature multiple new and different uniform combinations this football season. They will have as many different combinations as Oregon. Now, I have not seen these so I’m not sure if they will be a new design (I doubt it will be drastic maybe metallic numbers?) but I assume it will consist of different color jersey combinations (ex- white, black, grey, red jerseys & pants).

These rumors stemmed from a video that surfaced on the Internet that was allegedly created by Assistant Director of Video Services at The Ohio State University Athletic Department, Russell Hoeflich. According to the video description, Hoeflich created the “to be used at tOSU’s 2013 presentation for Nike in Seattle.”

There is no confirmation that the video or it’s description are legit, but it is something very interesting to consider. Ohio State has tinkered with their uniforms in the past, so if there are any changes to the team’s look it wouldn’t be anything too serious and it could just be some alternate uniform combinations to add to the mix. For a look at the teams previous alternate looks, check out the uniforms here, here and here.

The alternate uniforms, especially the white jersey with white helmet and gray pants, are all solid looks, so it would be exciting to see those become a part of the regular uniform rotation.

If that is the case, it would be interesting to see how the Ohio State fans would react.

Here is the video in question:
