    Anyone with the time, inclination, and software care to take a pass at what CU's helmet would look like if we made the Rose Bowl and had a special helmet logo?

    No. We have the coolest helmet in college football. Don't mess with it.

    only if we make the rose a different color. Red on a CU helmet? That is heresy

    Those teams dont make it to the Rose Bowl very often. We are going to make it our home away from home.

    Yes.... if only to read pages and pages of people bitching about desecrating the helmet.

    The real question is, when the hell was Wazzu last in the Rose Bowl?

    No thank you, the helmet is sweet how it is. Put a patch on the jersey if you want but the helmet should be left alone. Having a special helmet makes it look like they hardly ever get there. You don't see Michigan, Ohio State or USC doing that.

    Yes, do it the first time but not for any subsequent visits. It will be special when CU makes it to the Rose Bowl for the first time and it would be cool to incorporate a rose on the logo to commemorate that first visit.

    Unless you are an old lady on Easter or at the Kentucky Derby, you have no business wearing flowers in your hat...No.

    I would, however, be in favor of the rose bowl incorporating a buffalo into their logo somehow.

    Fellas,

    The Rose Bowl people came with Larry Scott back in June and passed out those roses in the Folsom Field suite box.

    If red was considered heresay, then we need to take the American and Colorado state flags off CU's helmets...get over it you American haters...let's put a rose on the CU helmet if CU makes it to the Rose Bowl.

    We probably won't play Nebraska for maybe over a decade... kinda pointless to be stuck in the past and boycott anything red.

    The helmet is perfect the way it is; would prefer to see a patch on the jersey.
