    As some of you have probably seen on twitter @CharlesSollars has been re-imagining our helmets and has 24 concepts up:

    He's going to be running a bracket to see which we like better so if you are bored as I am today at work you can check out all of the designs on his website linked above.

    I don't care for most of em.... most are too busy or too plain - no happy middle ground.

    This is my favorite, the one on the right:

    I agree with Dio. The one on the right below, is straight up awful. Kind of hard to look at.

    In all of them the buffalo is too intricate. The right horn one Dio posted above is okay if I have to pick one.

    Can he run a bracket for which one is the worst, because those are all abominations.

    I'd be interested to see what the one on the left looks like with whites.

    Ugh!! The man has too much time on his hands, and no design sense. No thank you to all of them.

    He may be doing that so CU doesnt come after him for unauthorized use of their logo. A couple of them arent bad. I wouldnt mind seeing a matte white helmet with an gold leaf looking logo as an alternate.

    That's a good point. If that is the case, then they are not so bad.

    i like the idea of the mountians on the helmets, but not the color scheme of mustard yellow and white. silver on black with a gold buff logo would look sharp.

    The title of this thread should be RENAMED!

    I thought for a moment that CU was thinking of adding some new helmet designs. Then I looked at the helmet designs and thought, "Oh **** no." Then I realized this was just some dude's personal designs. Thank God.

    Those "concepts" are horrible. Do not want any of them.

    Just looking at the design of his website gives me enough ammo to make an informed decision that the helmets probably all suck.

    Upon further analysis, my theory is indeed correct.

    I like the helmets with the buffalo horns but everything else sucks.

    I don't like the specific design this guy has for it, but having the flatirons with a buffalo standing on them is pretty cool.

    Could anyone imagine the white buffalo outfit where there would be white helmets with black horns on them along with white jerseys and white pants?

    EDIT: And anyone notice that with the horns on the helmets, there are small buffalo logos around the ear hole area? We could put the current CU logo there.

    Have they picked your new helmets? I like your old ones. We (Cal) are getting matte finish

    Our new helmets will be identical to our old ones. In other words, we're not getting new helmets. We might get a one-off single game helmet, but the design will stay pretty much the same.
