On Sept. 11, as the Ohio State Buckeyes battled the Miami Hurricanes, 1,200 scarlet towels swirled over Block O. The following week, the Horseshoe came alive with nearly 50,000 of the small red swaths.

On Sept. 11, as the Ohio State Buckeyes battled the Miami Hurricanes, 1,200 scarlet towels swirled over Block O. The following week, the Horseshoe came alive with nearly 50,000 of the small red swaths.

They're called Rah Rags, and designer Ryan Vesler is hoping they become the newest tradition among the Buckeye faithful.

"There's just something about a rally towel," said Vesler, owner of local clothing company Homage. "It's sort of one size fits all. Anybody can participate with it."

Emblazoned with a white "O" and lyrics to "Across the Field," the towels are available from Ohio Staters, Inc., a volunteer student group that operates kiosks outside the stadium.

You can also grab one from the Buckeye team shop and numerous Campus gear stores, where 10 percent of your purchase will benefit the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. Learn more at homage.com.
