    Helmet Help

    Looking to add 2 more helmets to my collections, take a look at our helmet history and let me know what you guys think. I already have the Peach Bowl '76-'78 helmet.
    For some reason I really like the '81-'82 helmet...

    83-86 helmet. Best design ISU has ever had IMO.

    Why has this still not been updated?

    I am partial to the 1979 one.

    I would go with this one. I like the gold helmets over cardinal.

    Re: Helmet Help

    '79 is cool but I like the '87-'94 ones myself, just love the "Cyclones" spelled out on the helmet and it being yellow (gold) too....even though we had Walden-boy at the helm. I was a kid, and was already in love with ISU at that point. Those jerseys rocked too.

    Wish our I-State helmets were yellow with two cardinal stripes going down the center. (I love our current look/unis....but I would have went with yellow helmets and a grey facemask to go with our traditional look.)

    Remember the red helmet just like this one. Didn't the team's players of the week wear them in the following game? It was weird seeing two diff colored helmets being worn by players.

    I'd like to see us use "Cyclones" more, too, but that type face was...fruity, to put it nicely.
