    The battle of the 2 lamest helmets in college football

    I don't care what you say about "classics" or "tradition", Alabama and Penn State have the two most boring and lame helmets in the sport.

    When it's not broke don't fix it. They are two of the most successful schools in all of college football and are easily recognized.

    Their helmets may be lame, but you cannot argue with the product they put on the field.

    Show a casual fan those two helmets and it's safe to sa the vast majority would know what schools they represent.

    None of these arguments make the helmets any less lame. I don't doubt their history, I just think they're two of the saddest looking helmets in the game.

    Re: The battle of the 2 lamest helmets in college football

    Did anyone see V-Tech's unis last week? They tried for some type of contemporary look and they failed miserably. The helmets looked like they were spray painted with krylon primer, and the jerseys looked like something out of the Saturday morning cartoons. I'm glad ISU went with the retro logo and unis - very classy.

    Regardless of tradition, I think they look good.

    Re: The battle of the 2 lamest helmets in college football

    Depends what you are going for. You can change the helmets every couple years to be contemporary to appeal to some segment of the fan base, or you can keep the classic tradition that built the programs they are today. I like the simple, no nonsense traditional unis they have.

    I love the tradition of keeping those helmets. Wish ISU would do some of that....

    penn states helmets are amazing.. contemporary graphics ruin things. i like the metal looking new nike helmets but they dont change the teams logo.

    nebraskas are the same way, tough.
