Ohio State's new Nike Pro Combat uniform looks sad.

Be very afraid, Ohio State fans, for you are about to enter Nike Pro Combat Hell. Here is the new Nike Pro Combat uniform Ohio State will be wearing for its game against Wisconsin at the Horseshoe. If you thought the unis Georgia wore getting its beatdown by Boise State in the  Chick-fil-A Kickoff game were bad, you might want to cover your eyes. Or at least go hide the icepicks before you look at the image a bit too close.

Is Nike even trying anymore? This year's batch of Pro Combat unis have for the most part been ranging from boring to downright boring. At least Under Armour hasn't done that so far this year. On the other hand, Nike hasn't come up with a Freudian nightmare like Maryland's state flag inspired uni that looked like Garth Brooks and Harley Quinn's mutant lovechild, either. And the helmet looks way too sadly familiar. As in looking way too much like Georgia's from the front.

Nike has been pretty much shooting blanks this year when it comes to alternate unis. It might be just a fluke year, or proof that Uncle Phil's House of Fashion is running out of ideas.
