    Do not like that early 2000's gold we had. Eww. Best helmet in college football though.

    Those blue ones are awful. Makes us look like UCLA's drag queen cousin.

    I think Tricky Ricky was the first to trot those out.

    I don't like our new italicized CU within our logo. I wish we could get rid of the italics.

    We almost had this one, too, in 1979:

    That is interesting because that black helmet with the silver logo looks like a newer speed revolution helmet. Probably just a mock up for the picture. Buffnut those look like a mix between the Bills, Seachickens and us. Not sure it is any worse than the blue logos though.

    When was the silver helmet with black horns? Based on the order I think I would remember that - but I am trying to use my memory and I also drink a lot!

    Was that from the game 2-3 years ago when they played in the silver/gray throwbacks?

    the late 70's/early 80's were a bad time for aesthetics in general, fo sho.

    OK, i saw someone list ISU as a good helmet above. i mean, for real? ever?

    I like the silver logo on the black helmet but I like the one from last year with the gold logo even better. Agree that we should lose the italics.

    Actually, I kind of miss the old block CU helmets. Love to see them in a throwback. Those were the helmets from my introduction to CU football

    I will never understand the logic in adding a green tinge to the gold...

    The gold helmet with the bison horn is bad ass (the one sandwiched between #68 and first CU block design).

    The italics are the best thing to happen to the logo. It modernized to, it makes it look fast and quick, and thats what todays market is. It makes it look like the buffaloe is charging at you and the CU just fit better insit ralphie. The old blocky one just looked paste on ralphie. Also Block letters are out of date.. kinda like 3D numbers.

    Latest new gold helmets are awesome, but I like the horn to be gold to match the helmet. Horn with gold background > white horn. Looks like someone spilled whiteout on Ralphie. Just being picky, the new helmets are huge improvement and remind me of the Notre Dame Orange Bowls. Hagan, Bienemy, Pritchard, Alfred and the good old days running the option.

    I have to say that black helmet we rolled out for the Blackout vs. USC last year is really growing on me. Not something I want for every game, but definitely for the Blackout and it'd be cool to see it with the away unis once to see how it looks.
