    Why are the helmets darker than the jerseys?

    We need gold helmets!! Also need to maybe darken the gold color as well. (Because I don't like them looking like highlighters)

    Must be the lighting. They look the same to me here.

    The brighter it was outside, the more notable it was.

    I could give a rip about our helmets - as long as they don't glitter like Minnesotas ... tell me someone else noticed that

    Re: Why are the helmets darker than the jerseys?

    Since everyone compares us to USC, Their helmets do the same thing as well. My guess, it's the contrast between a shiny helmet and a matte jersey and how the cameras interpret that to your TV.

    Yeah, it's all about the lighting. That's just the way it is with two different materials and a dark (non-black) color. I personally don't want gold helmets, just some white between the stripes on the jersey and pants.

    I hate the stripes on the home jerseys. They need a white stripe or something. I also wish the stripes went all the way around rather than half circles.
    The away jerseys have pretty good stripes though.

    I don't hate the cardinal helmets, but I would LOVE gold ones. The throwbacks from 2 years ago were the best uni's we have ever had in the history of Iowa State football.
