    Really good article on the research going on at VaTech. I have seen a couple of the Toyota commercials and wondered what the connection was to football. I never did have a good fitting helmet in highschool. Fortunately, as a center I was able to avoid getting knocked in the head.

    Back to the thread title, does anyone know what brand(s)/model(s) CU uses?

    Football ones.

    Seriously though, I've seen no fewer than 4 different types on the field over the past couple years. I think it's a player/coach decision, based on size/shape of the players' head and probably player preference. I don't think we're tied to one brand, much less one model, of helmet.

    Hansen just wears the normal Riddell Revolution

    Riddell Revolution's seem to be very common along with the standard, old style Riddell's.
