    Cool helmet.

    I think we will begin to see more 3rd jersey's and helmets to some extent, as way to bring in additional revenue for the schools/conference through additional sales of merchandise.

    Seems to work for the NHL. NFL, etc...

    I would like to see the rest of the uniform to have an actual opinion but the helmet is pretty cool. Considering they might have the worst helmet in the PAC12.

    They're moving to Gold? Who are they trying to be? CU or UW?

    :why:

    Not a bad look - except the color is awful

    I like them. CU doesn't need to follow though.

    Think it would look better for ASU's helmet's as it goes better with their school colors.

    Why have three people voted that CU should do this? Our helmets are already gold, and the right shade of gold. We already tried using a different shade of gold during the 2000's and it looked terrible.

    They're not bad (for UA). One of Rich Rod's better gimmicky moves.

    Arizona is the "copper state," so it makes sense from that perspective. Having said that, copper plus red and blue? :puke:

    Edit: I knew they reminded me of something. Rich Rod ripping off the AFL now.

    I like the copper, but you are right that it really clashes with the red white & blue logo.

    The red, white and blue don't really go with the copper, IMO. I don't think a new helmet will help what will probably be a pretty rough season.

    I think it looks pretty cool, but it also made me think of a battery..

    Wainaminnit. One of your pet peeves is uniform threads.
    Either there is a helmet exemption or you just peeved yourself.

    Didn't you just break your own rule?

    (Just to be sure)

    Those helmets are 100% swag.
