    Looks like Farniok and Rohach will be wearing Riddell's new helmet...

    This pic from the Ames Tribune shows Farniok and Rohach wearing the new Riddell Speedflex helmets...interested to see how these helmets perform throughout the season.

    More on the helmet...with an ISU mention...

    Let's get Aka in one so he doesn't miss anymore time with concussions

    "But Riddell has quietly been making the SpeedFlex available to NFL teams and several top college football programs."

    Speaking of helmets, our helmet has been displayed on SVP & Russillo twice within the last week. SIAP

    The flex panel looks okay on our helmets, but it really clashes with the longhorns on the Texas helmet.

    I'm curious how they plan to change the laws of physics inside the helmet to help players' brains not hit their skulls at impact.

    Longer contact = reduced force. I don't remember the exact laws behind it, but spreading the force over a longer period of time would reduce the force exerted on the object (brain). Something like that.

    I definitely understand the theory behind it, but I'm not sure that the .X(0)1 of a second is going to make any meaningful impact. Seems kind of like tapping your brakes just before hitting a telephone pole.

    Flex is good, but I am skeptical of a panel you can move with thumb force.

    Probably won't make a major impact in the amount of concussions, but if it can cut out a few concussions here and there during a season, the new technology is doing its job.

    Yeah which means a larger helmet. Unfortunately that probably would cause more torque transferred to the neck. Should probably make everyone wear that Don Beebe helmet padding over their helmets for starters.
