That's amazing. I've never met anyone from this board, but I have always read BSKB's comments in a Grandpa Simpson voice. I guess I'm not alone.

Debatably, arguably, possibly... the ugliest helmet in college football history!

RE: Uniform Surprise
am i crazy, or is it possible these are simply the purple chrome helmets that have now been painted over? i have trouble believing we bought brand new helmets with the exact same Duke Dog logo on it, especially when someone else has already acknowledged the logo itself is chrome. think we just painted over the purple helmets, fellas. not that there's anything wrong with that (if i knew how to do a meme, i'd do a Seinfeld one here)

I think the equipment team puts the decals on all the helmets.

The purple chrome helmets were definitely my favorite. They were soooo shiny!

yeah i just went back and looked at the purple helmets and the decal is definitely bigger anyway. in general, i love all black uniforms. i know a lot of people aren't a fan, but i think they're great.

Do not agree. Your arguments bashing JB and the admin are more sensical. Why thank you for your kind remarks, appreciate that.

Did we not lose to efffing Richmond on ESPN Gameday with these helmets? YES, had nothing to do with our helmet and more to do with terrible defensive coaching a ******* coach that was more interested in being on ESPN than getting a W.
Did we not lose VL2 with these lids (and the hope of a deep playoff run in 2015)? YES, had nothing to do with the helmet.
Did we not possibly lose Schor for our long awaited deep 2016 playoff run with the "M"? YES, but neither you nor I know what his injury actually is. Did we not just clinch and outright CAA title on the road in those helmets?
There was another close game this year with these on as well. New Hampshire or Maine? i can't remember. Not remembering which game it was or was not is certainly not helping your case.

Time to destroy them. There are better alternatives available. This may be true, but voodoo and superstition only exist in the minds of fans, not in the results or outcomes of what happens between the white lines.

I'll take that as a "yes" they should be retired.

Speaking of jinx, wasn't the Liberty game a blackout?05-stirthepot

It appeared those decals were so large that it was difficult to make them lay flat on the round surface of a helmet. I hope these new ones stand out enough to tell what they are from a distance. I froze the video while the helmet was up in the air, of course we all know what it is, but I want folk who are new to JMU football to grasp it. Basically, I'd like the four year old kid to be saying, "Look dad, they have Duke Dog on the helmet today."
