And why must everyone slap numbers on the side of the helmets now? Want to know why that is cool? Because only one school does it! That’s Bama’s schtick. A handful of other schools doing that cheapens the look. Man that pisses me off. If people start ripping off Florida State’s helmet (the best helmet ever), I’m just going to stop watching college football.
I freely admit that I have no idea what all of this Occupy Wall Street stuff is about (because I don’t care), but I assume it’s about rich people being too rich or whatever. Why don’t these people do something useful and protest these horrendous college football uniforms? Now that is something that everyone could get behind.
As I mentioned though, not all of them are shit. I was actually able to come up with 5 good, 5 bad, and the ugliest alternate helmets/uniforms of all time. I feel like this is a decent topic. Shall we? We shall.
*Boise State’s all blue look with the large bronco outline on the helmet – They wore these against Toledo (I think). I like them better than their normal unis.
*Everything that Oregon wears – They started the trend so I give them points for being innovators
*The U’s green helmets – best helmets ever even if they are accompanied by horrible orange jerseys
*LSU when they wear all-white including the helmets – They wore these on Saturday…sharp as fuck.
*Florida’s white helmet with the blue F – Florida always has sick threads though.
*Maryland’s flag and turtle shell helmets – The less said about these, the better. I can officially say that I hope Under Armour goes bankrupt now.
*Arizona State’s new helmets with a fork on it – I actually liked that weirdo cartoon devil…he reminded me of The Noid!
*Notre Dame doing anything different than usual – those helmets were waaaaaay too shiny on Saturday night…and green jerseys are fucking gay
*Ohio State’s unis from the Michigan game last season – Commenter Jeff bought a TP jersey in this style. Everyone hates Commenter Jeff.
*Michigan’s stripe-orgy this year – The numbers don’t even fit on the helmet!
*Spartan Gold – WHY???? FUCK YOU, SPARTY!
Let’s get a decent debate going about this today. At worst, it will be fun to read Grumpy’s comment about the need to bring back leather helmets. Actually, you know, someone asked Luke Fuckell this week if he wanted to wear all black uniforms and he said that he would. I think that that would be a pretty sick look actually. So, Nike, give the Buckeyes all black instead of helmets with numbers and smeared menstrual fluid on them. And maybe a plane crash, too. You know, in honor of Payne Stewart (10 years ago this week!).
