    Racing stripes on Helmet

    I think a Yellow/White/Yellow would look great, or at least just a Yellow (excuse me, Gold) stripe. Kind of like the reverse of the 2007 throwback helmets against Iowa.

    I've heard no rumors, I just think it would make the helmets look a ton better. Anybody else in the same boat?

    Re: Racing stripes on Helmet

    I think a white stripe would look horrible when there is no white whatsoever anywhere else on the helmet, logo, and, with the exception of the white road jersey, none on the uniforms at all. Personally I prefer no helmet stripes, but if it must be done either one or two gold stripes and that's it.

    I think we should have just went with gold helmets

    Seriously though, I do.

    I would rather add louvers and a spoiler.

    Exactly, the white stripes on the 77 jerseys and the throwback jerseys were great. Obviously it would look out of place with no white but I would love to see those subtle touches added.

    Currently, the only thing that distinguishes us from USC is the poor play on the field.

    Since I think no white will be added any time soon, a single yellow stripe would look solid.
