With Ohio State ready to kick off its season against the one opponent that granted the Buckeyes their only loss last year, a fashionable statement will be made by the Big Ten national champions tonight.
After slapping Alabama in the face in their “Diamond Quest” garments in the BCS National Championship game, Ohio State will re-adorn the one-stripe threads against Virginia Tech.
Surely the combination of J.T. Barrett and Ezekiel Elliott – both highly touted in multiple 2016 NFL mock drafts – won’t object to laying down their offensive firepower for a shot at redemption in a defense that features the youngest of the Fuller brothers, Kendall.
