I've been looking for this imfamous black helmet now for a couple of days and have nothing....I don't think that we have ever wore a black helmet....the best info I could ever come up with was a full detailed chronology of the CU uniform from a CU press release...we've worn every other combination, but i've never seen a black helmet....if it ever occured it would only be in someone's memory here????
Here's the uniform link: https://admin.xosn.com/pdf5/134068.pdf?DB_OEM_ID=600
CU vs. Baylor 1998
Having trouble finding the pictures though
:lol::lol:....shows that I can't read...says so right on the press release..."September 26, 1998—For the Baylor home game, the Buffaloes don a sort of “throw-back” jersey that is gold in color with black numbers
(with silver trim), along with black helmets (silver logo) and a black
pant. It’s the only time any of the components of the look (other than
the pant) are used."
Slidin has posted pics of the black helmet here before.
Didn't they lose this game?
No. We eeked out a 18-16 win
Those are pretty cool
I have three pics of that game, one in black and white, but have no hosting site to put them on. Will email to whoever can do this.
Can't you just upload them to AB?
Flatirons- just make a photobucket account and host them there. It's free and I think we'd all like to see those pics.
I was there that night... Brutal game, felt like a loss but I guess we pulled it out in the end. I remember Bledsoe was the QB at the end.
The helmet wasn't all that bad, but still looked like crap compared to the gold base with black ralphie and bold CU in it.
The thing that stuck out the most were those "gold" jerseys. Looked like someone unrinated all over them... Probably the worst overall uniform ever!
Bring back the early 90s unis, big bold block COLORADO and uniform #ers too! Nothing beats that!
I was there, too, and I thought the uniforms looked like Sh!t. They were worse than CU's performance that night and that's saying something. Keep the gold helmut, stop all the gimmicks and play some football.
Just wondering: Are we curious about this because we think they might roll them out for the Blackout Game on Thurs?
Yes, that's the thinking but I'm not holding my breath. Not sure how expensive it would be to break out Black helmets.
I remember that night when we wore those uniforms. Was hard to get used to the black helmets - just didn't look like our team...that and the awful performance on the field.
I clearly remember a lot of fans yelling at Ricky to take those uniforms and shove them - the impression from folks around us was that they thought Ricky might be changing our helmets for good and they didn't like it.
Coming from a band nerd, I always wondered how cool it would look if the band subbed the white jacket with the gold for a black jacket with gold.
Does the "bone" in your name come from "trombone"? I always just assumed you had an erection.
I remember that too. A lot of the shrieking though was about the gold jerseys. I think the black helmets are sweet and would look really good with the black on black look the team uses for homecoming and rivalry games. I don't see why they can't have two different helmets.
I have a replica black helmet in my office. The helmet is pretty cool but the jerseys did look like ****. I think they called them Vegas Gold or something ****ed up like that.
The QB's apparently practice (or at least they used to) with the gold jerseys. I've seen a number of pictures of them and they look pretty sharp with the gold helmets and white pants. They look too much Georgia Tech though.
I think this would look pretty sweet
I sent them to MP; so they should be posted soon. have to go get stuff for Alex's first birthday party tomorrow, so can't open an account right now.
Don't like them with the gold top; hoping that if they do it, it will be with the black helmet with all black uni's. Think that would be over the top for a 'Blackout' game.
Please god don't let Hawk revert back to the Skippy era with those godawful helmets. They remind me of Skippy.issed:issed::eviltongue:
Dude! That's funny!
I know its not a great job, but it is at least a close approximation... had trouble w/ the decal so I painted over it.
How about this one instead... a little better :thumbsup:
I just can't win... one way or the other I will have something backwards. Its the jersey or the helmet. Oh well
I've always wondered what Scotty would look like with an afro.
