    Has anyone else noticed how many helmuts are popping off of players heads this year? Just take notice of almost any game and you'll see WAY more helmuts flying off than ever before.

    Are the helmuts different this year for all NCAA? Same mfg?

    That is the new Revolution super duper breakaway model that avoids many of the concussions. :nerd6bs: The explosive force of compression when being hit just bounces the helmets off the head, but the force does not let them crush the skull. The more they pop into the air, the fewer the injuries. The problem is when people step on your exposed face.:growl5cj:

    Now if we could just come up with something for knees and ankles.

    I thought a Helmut was some kind of Helmet, mullet combination. I thought I would see a photo of some white trash squawkeye fan with the tigersquawk shaved into the side of his head with a mullet hairdo.

    I think we've had more helmets pop off this year for two reasons

    1: Stevie's hair is bigger, longer and stronger than ever, and his helmet is powerless to stay covering all that stuff...same thing with Curvey if he lets his cornrows out
    2: The collision between our defenders and other teams guys has been big since they're always 5 yards past the line of scrimmage by the time we decide to tackle them

    The helmut is like a beer can - they just now added the pop top.
