RE: Uniform Surprise
Yo HH&C, I'm making an assumption here, but in the past new helmets and swag for our football players has been an Alpha Dog thing; if you were involved in the helmet and uni stuff, thanks for your contributions to our program. It's easy to tell the players love this stuff, and they absolutely earned it this season. Thank you.

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.

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."

I think that's reasonable. I have some other suggestions for our logo in general but i'll keep them to myself for now.

Agreed, thanks to the Alpha Dogs for their support of our programs and supporting the athlete by giving them some cool stuff to rep our programs! Really gets them hyped up!

I can say with certainty, we did not just paint over the old helmets. They are new.

yeah I know, I corrected my post a few minutes after I typed it. I'm aware they're new.

RE: Uniform Surprise
The purple helmets have been gone a long time. they were sent back and refurbed. they could be white matt purple, or even the gold ones by now. its correct the equipment managers put all the decals on the helmets, and change them each game if needed. Its a massive job and can take a couple days to redo a complete decal change for all the helmets. Havent seen a black helmet yet, but could be who knows.

Looks sort of charcoal to me.

Love these helmets. The purple looks great in chrome, but this matte black is awesome.

Uniform Surprise
I have to admit, I wasn't a fan just seeing them in the reveal video, but I really like them outdoors.
