“I got this crazy checkered pair that I wore earlier this season,” he said. “People really weren't paying attention, but they were crazy and checkered with orange and yellow green and a whole bunch of different colors, I like that pair a lot.”

We all know exactly what socks he is speaking of. IMO, insert a photo of that pair in the article. Image should relate to text. Other than that, nice spin on the article.

Good point. The story's photo shows Tree sporting an outrageous pair of solid black socks. :lol:

But good article. I enjoy the insight into Tree as a person.

Put this down as one of the board topics I though I'd never see.

The rose goes in the front Tree.

I think Tree (and the Zips) should add to this new marketing ploy by auctioning off his used socks (he's not going use them again, after all) to benefit some Akron area charity. I think it would be a hit! :D

Well, the ESPN talent crew made a big thing out of DemeTreeous'es hosiery. They were especially hyperbolic about the Hawaiian luau socks he had on during Friday's semi-finals. Anybody catch a shot of those? I might like to find a pair myself on eBay. :D

I rewatched it today. They said they thought the entire Zips team shopped at the thrift store clearance section. He also said he thinks Tree dressed in the dark. lol

I've always preferred teams all wear matching socks/shoes in school colors. But, surprisingly it doesn't bother me to see some crazy stuff worn by the Zips. Let them have fun and I'm glad to see fans sporting crazy socks on gameday.

Hopefully the NCAA doesn't penalize any of our players for their socks. I know they have a long list of uniform rules and seem to like to crack down on stupid violations.

Keep wearing the same socks.

Respect the streak!

Once Tree wears a pair of socks in a game he never wears them again. Always new socks for each game.

The crazy socks thing reminds me of the Tribe in the 90's, when everyone donned the "Thome high socks" as a superstition in the playoffs one season. The Zips should do the same by following Tree's lead and make it their thing.

Well, at least the fans could.
