20 years after the founding of the university, and 12 years after the formation of the TBDBITL, the Buckeyes took the football field for the first time.
Ohio State’s inaugural season in 1890 was the handy work of George Cole who convinced Alexander S. Lilley to volunteer as coach of the gridiron gladiators. And the Buckeyes’ first game win against Ohio Wesleyan set the precedent for what AP crowned the greatest collegiate football program of all time in its 2016 poll. Pay homage to the inception of one of the richest tradition in all of college sports with this crewneck, featuring the print from the original 1890 jersey.
