Tomorrow is the two-month anniversary of The Game (aka. The Day App State T-Shirts Became Fashionable). USA Today happened to reflect this week on the ensuing economic benefits to App State, as our shirts remain hotter than Lynch love. Cause you see, there’s a huge game coming up with earth shattering national title implications (No, not that one. This one.) And some Buckeyes are coming dressed to impress.
(ASU) estimates 30% of the online orders came from Ohio and another 15% to 20% from Michigan, going undoubtedly to Buckeyes and Michigan State fans. Vendors in those states also were granted approval to print Appalachian State T-shirts in Ohio State and Michigan State colors.
Fans and alumni associations from the two schools contacted LRG, ordering hundreds of shirts, including an order of 1,000 shirts from one Ohio State organization, Hardy said.
