Looks like black unis and possibly purple "Dukes" script helmet per JMU twitter video: https://twitter.com/JMUFootball/status/9...5578171392

Are you sure about the script "Dukes"? The pics on UniSwag a few weeks ago showed the purple JMU helmet with the JMU logo. It looks like they are intending to use the JMU logo on the purple helmet, but perhaps not this game.

RE: Uniform Surprise
Some of our helmets today are noticeably darker than the others.

Nah, they just shift color a bit in the light, depending on your angle when you look at them.

That's what I thought at first until Schor and Sharp were right beside each other walking and the colors were different.

Raven Green's helmet is definitely a darker shade of purple than everyone elses. It's not even close.

I'll look again. Maybe it's something to do with different amounts of sealant/coating?

RE: Uniform Surprise
My guess is that there are different helmets and different primers used. Some may have been painted over and over again while others are first time use. Raven Green is five years into the program, he may like one and only one helmet and ask for it to be painted and redone as the game requirements change. Of course this is only speculation, but I can tell you during my racing days, my driver wanted to wear the same helmet every Sunday. He didn't mind practicing in a different one, but come race day, he wanted the same one. I personally cleaned it with soap and water each week to get the funk out (occasionally having a new paint scheme on it) and on raceday hung it in the car for use.
