    The gameday helmets used this year were broken in the first few days of practice and then put on the shelf to be cleaned up and have logos applied. For major programs I believe this is the common practice.

    So in short, unless they want to cause these guys pain, we probably won't see white helmets because there was no break-in period. Transferring the inside would probably resort in more work for the equipment guys and isn't likely to happen. Especially on a short week.

    Don't be so unimaginitive. There is a quite simple fix.

    It could be messy if it rains.

    If we added a second (white) helmet color, if my math is correct, that would give us 18 possible uniform combinations.

    I know for a FACT there was only ONE white helmet made. And it was a made for fun just to show on Twitter. There is no white helmet on Friday!

    Is there a cybookie for this yet? I would love to double my credits!

    Re: ISU wearing all white unis Friday

    After watching the game last night, I think our normal road unis with red pants are better, and I don't think it's even close.

    Now, maybe white helmets would change my mind. But if we are sticking with the red helmets, better stick with the red pants as well.

    If we do break out the gold unis again at some point this season, I think those might look better with the white pants though. Maybe.

    Agreed. All white with white helmets or stick with the cardinal pants.

    White helmet/Gold jersey/White pants combo will look good later this year.

    I don't think I made that combo yet.

    Here it goes.

    I don't like it much, but I've seen worse
