The Best: college football helmet


Welcome to "The Best," a new series from the people who brought you "Would You Do," "Blogger Interviews" and "What Really Grinds My Gears."

It's just what it sounds like: what's the best ______? "Best" is such a subjective word and that's really the point -- let's get you guys talking! If this works, there will be intelligent, thoughtful debate on the day's topic. And if it doesn't work, well, back to the drawing board.

College football starts today! HOLY SHIT! OMG!!!! AGGGHHH!!!! If eight and a half months without college football hasn't got you drooling over the upcoming season, perhaps some good uniform talk will.

But rather than talk about a full uni, let's stay specific to one part: the helmet. It's the most recognizable feature of any football uniform and can make or break a team's look.

So, the best college football helmet?

Some things to consider:

-colors
-logo
-tradition/history of helmet

Here's how we'd go:

5. Alabama
4. Michigan
3. Georgia
2. Texas
1. Penn St.

Debate away.

Penn State?

Could we be more boring?

Why don't you just pick Notre Dame, Navy, Army, VMI and every other school that can't seem to afford mascot stickers for their helmets?

The best has gotta be Michigan. Copied by high school programs across the country and the Delaware Blue Hens

let's not forget though that Michigan stole that design from Princeton. Look it up.

i gotta give love to Ohio State because I think they look sweet when they're covered in merit stickers

JMC said...

also, even though I hate them, I think FSU has a pretty good helmet

Gotta be Notre Dame with the actual gold in the paint for the helmet.

Yea, I think Michigan's gotta be the best helmet in college ball. Notre Dame's right there and I agree that Ohio State's helmet covered in stickers looks great.

I'd agree with Penn State if they would go back to the standard grey guards, like USC has now. However, the Buckeyes have the coolest.

Our helmets are white because they represent the white flag of surrender. That's why we start off the season with games against teams like Coastal Carolina, Akron, or Florida International because we can't handle real games with real opponents.
