    Without knowing anything about him, I'd wonder if maybe they're prescription?

    Is our budget so small we can't afford visors?

    This. I pretty sure he was battling pink eye I mid season last year. I remember some of the players families talking about it at the Okie St game which was week before KSU game.

    Maybe. If they are just for style he should just go with the dark helmet visor.

    I don't think tinted visors are allowed.

    This guy put on an absolute clinic in the spring game, pink eye or not, he can wear shades if he is picking up that kind of yardage every game.

    I'm not sure why more of our players don't go with a dark visor or a red and gold one. They are badass.

    I guess you didnt see the visor he has on? Its clear and I dont think visors can be colored anymore.

    That's possible.


    Regardless, the picture is hilariously awesome.

    So what if some players eyes are sensitive to bright sunlight? They are just going to make him wear sunglasses under his helmet, and not have a dark visor? Dumb rule if you ask me.

    I always wondered if they could do something with a doctor's note saying they need one.

    Also, not really sure why tinted visors are not allowed in the first place. I wouldn't see it as any type of advantage. And if it is, it's an advantage that every player can have equally
