Bad Big Ten Shirts: Goldy Gopher Go Braugh

February 7, 2012

1 Comment

Those who know me well, know that I find the random ‘Irishing Up’ of team sports wear to be one of the most reprehensible marketing ploys of all-time.  Maybe it’s because my heritage is absolutely 0.0% Irish, but I believe St. Patrick’s Day to be the most marginal of holidays. I certainly don’t need to celebrate someone else’s heritage […]

Bad Big Ten Shirts: BCS Edition

January 16, 2012

We should have posted these sooner, but these shirts from the 2012 BCS games are still ugly. Perhaps Wisconsin’s loss was worth it, so they didn’t have to wear them.

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Sugar Bowl Eye Chart

December 28, 2011

  Way too much happening on the front of this women’s shirt for the Sugar Bowl. By the time you figure out what the eye-chart layout all means, her boyfriend probably will have beaten you up.

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Indiana & Churchill Edition

December 26, 2011

1 Comment

Recovering from NCAA sanctions > standing up to Nazi aggression. At least according to this shirt. I was all set to mock fraternity boys for creating it. Instead, it came from athletic director Fred Glass for a random game against Minnesota in 2009, according to this story: Churchill knew his country wasn’t finished. Things were […]

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Minnesota Homecoming 2011

December 22, 2011

Apparently, somebody at the U of Minnesota bookstore likes Van Halen… All that glitters is gold? J.R.R Tolkien is spinning in his grave. …and they better check that this awful design isn’t copyright infringement (see below).   Not that there would be any royalites or earnings to turn over to Eddie, Alex, and Wolfgang anyways.  And then […]

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Bucky Gives Birth to Lee Corso

December 21, 2011

2 Comments

Today’s Bad Big Ten T-shirt features Bucky giving birth to Lee Corso through his mouth. Not really sure who would buy this. I can see this being sold at a store on campus on a sale rack for $5 and somebody’s Grandpa or younger brother getting this sucker for Christmas. Prepare to be disappointed Grandpa/younger brother!

This is the official 2012 Outback Bowl shirt for Michigan State. It’s magnificent, in a I-will-never-ever-wear-this-shirt-again way. Full series of Bad Big Ten Shirts here.

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Wisconsin Does Math

December 20, 2011

4 Comments

  Here’s one from this season, courtesy of Wisconsin fans seeking to “put those Cornhuskers in their place!” Well, this does that, if their place is on the bad end of an odd math problem. Is a badger head greater than an ear of corn? In terms of what? Certainly weight. Beyond that, I’m not […]

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Busy Michigan Edition

December 19, 2011

6 Comments

Here’s a Bad Big Ten Shirt from our friends at Michigan. This one uses the popular evolution theme, suggesting man – or our ancestors, the monkeys (discuss) – started out as Ohio State fans before fully evolving into fully functioning, higher level Michigan fans. Unoriginal, but fine. Though I’m not sure why it needs the […]

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Penn State Nutcracker

December 14, 2011

0 Comments

This shirt from Penn State is beyond terrible. The point, I’m told by the Google machine, is that Terrell Pryor was sad after Penn State beat Ohio State in 2008. And “Nutcracker” refers to the Buckeyes. That took me a while to figure out, too. This shirt from 2009 was selected by the Penn State […]

Bad Big Ten Shirts: Northwestern Vs. Nebraska Edition

December 13, 2011

1 Comment

Not to be outdone, here’s another questionable Big Ten t-shirt out of Evanston.  It commemorates the game earlier this year when Northwestern defeated Nebraska (a stunning 28-25 victory in the Huskers first year of B10 play). I don’t much like T-shirts that celebrate a singular game, unless perhaps it’s a championship – whether it’s a Big Ten Championship or […]
