    I thought we were going to vote on the unis?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    He did also mention that starting today fans will be able to vote on uniforms on the athletic department website... but I the way I heard him it sounded like they were going with white helmets no matter what. It IS pretty early in the morning however...

    White helmets? I'll have to see these to get a feel for them. My first reaction isn't great but if they aren't going to be the same color of red as the uni we might as well go with a different color alltogether.

    Re: New Look Helmets for 08

    I heard that too and went "what...", but after thinking about it there are a bunch of teams that have white helmets out there. Maybe we can eventually lose our ugly jersey title?
    I really like listening to Jamie Pollard. There is just something about that guy.

    Coach Chiziks last two stops.



    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I can't remember him saying that starting today we can vote on this. I am kind of excited.

    Re: New Look Helmets for 08

    Yeah, I agree that my first impression was....okay.....but what color will the jersey be if we have gold pants and a white helmet? I'm a fan of matching the pants color with the helmet color. What do you think?

    Yes, I find white helmets offensive. Someone give me the number to the Rag so I can vent my frustrations in a more public arena.

    Back on topic...I was very suprised to hear that white helmets are the color of choice. It will all depend on jersey style whether I like this idea or not. Not that my opinion matters or anything.

    I won't pass judgement until I see them, but I sure hope they don't use our current logo. I'm a big fan of the throwback helmets for this year.

    I was trying to figure that out too... the only schools I can think of with white helmets also wear white pants. (Texas, Louisville, Auburn, Maryland, Wisconsin etc.) Most have heavy stripes down the side, so if they stick with that I think I'll like it. If they try to go with gold pants still in 08, I'll reserve judgement.

    White away jerseys with white pants and white helmets do look pretty nice though...

    Chizik can request poop colored helmets if he wins games in my opinion.
