I prefer they stick with the regular helmets, but for a blackout game, the blacks could be cool.
I've been hearing it all week but nothing official that I can bank on....so who knows??
That would be sweet
I believe the last time we wore them was 10 years ago, I think they could be a tradition of each decade.
Also as far as I know in the past few games we are undefeated when they give out towels (05 CSU, 07 OU, 07 Neb, 08 CSU) Let the streak continue and give out black towels tonight
there are pictures of the black helmets we wore in 1998 on the "pic of the buffs" thread. Even some photoshopping of what we would look like if they go with the black tonight
Come on team, just one time!
What color is the buffalo? I'm hoping it's gold.
Just spoke with Doug Rippy, he confirmed GOLD helmets for the game tonight
God Dammit, wear the ****ing Blacks!
hmmpfff. The look will be sweet either way!
Nice research! I already saw JJ's post on the gold, but you deserve a rep for determining the black helmets exist. GO BUFFS!
Do we know if Rippy is telling the truth. They might come out for warmups in gold and change to black for the game. They have done it before with uniforms.
In which case I'll take my rep back from JJ. And give ANOTHER to Pissbomber.
It is very possible that Hawk and Co told his players "if anyone asks about the helmets tell them they are gold" or Hawk is suprising the team after warm ups with black helmets so as of right now they dont know.
Keepin my fingers crossed for black!
YES!!! Keep the gold helmut!!!!
I think they should stay with gold, WV has black, gold will stand out better under the ligths.
Black helmets would be sweet!
West Vag, doesn't have a lick of black on 'em....it's like a royal/navy blue
I'm still of the opinion that if you aren't the Steelers you shouldn't have black helmets. The Gold helmets are classic and classy and will stand out incredibly in the sea of black.
Then again, I have no say in the matter.
I dunno... general consensus between my friends and I are that the black helmets would be pretty effing sweet... but it won't ruin the evening for me if they don't show up in 'em. Haha. We'll find out soon enough!
(Or not soon enough as the case may be.... damnit... comeon clock... get the lead out!!!)
As long as they don't replace the grass field with gold turf, I don't care what color helmets they wear. Just win the $ucking game.
Class needs to be added to the swear filter.
Who cares what helmet they where,win a damn game over a top 25 in ooc for once . I hope they come out with a white helmet just to piss off the "helmet" crowd:smile2:
Damn, you guys ARE turning in to Oregon. 1,273 uniform combinations ahead. :huh: :wink2:
What else is there to talk about when the damn clock won't move?
I just noticed the wall clock in my office is stopped at 1:07. This is not helping.
Yeah that was a pretty stupid statement of mine on retrospect :doh:
Too amped up today to type clearly. Regardless, black helmets look crappy. Go with the gold.
Piss off, syko. :smile2:
Save 'em for a later season game ... a conference game.
I also hope they saved the older ALL-black uniforms to break out at some time with the black helmets. The only things not black on a player would be helmet decal, number and "Colorado" on jerseys, and "CU" on hip of pants. Coooool...
