    You'll be happy to know that there was a post today on the Scout free message board from a Buffs fan who is a major uni nerd, that:

    1. He has been emailing Bohn and Plati for the last 4 years complaining about the gold helmets being the wrong color.

    2. Bohn has emailed him back to let him know that he will be very happy about the helmets this season.

    Only good news around these parts lately! What is going on around here? The correct helmets are good for 1-2 wins just by themselves.

    Yay! Do you think they fixed it for good with the current uniforms or is Bohn only refering to the helmets that will be worn for the 1990 uniform?

    I don't know.

    But if we don't hear and everyone likes them, we could start a campaign to keep the helmets. Not to hard to start a Facebook page, pub it on all the Buffs sites, and get people to email Bohn and Plati.

    I sure hope the correct color is back! Our freaking Oreygon uniforms are bugging the crap out of me.

    Everything is falling into place this season. Will Hawk leave as Big XII Coach of the Year?

    Good news on the helmets. Question though, are the throwback uni's for all year or just certain games? I read the article about it but dont remember what it said.

    even though the real gold helmet, black pant, white jersey is the best uni in sport......when worn by a team kicking your ass 8 ways to Tuesday.

    Hope they fix the pants too - I don't think it's too much to ask that they match.

    Can/will one of you guys that is dialed in on the correct colors maybe throw up a couple of photos for a side by side comparison? Is the background color of allbuffs the color that youz guys say the helmets should be?

    The Ralphie Report just posted some pics of the throwback uniforms for this year. I think this will make some people very happy.

    [​IMG]

    Not really the best quality image (because it's from Travon Patterson's twitter) but you get the idea. There's also a picture of our away uniforms in the blog entry. http://www.ralphiereport.com/2010/8/21/1635364/2010-colorado-buffaloes-home
