I have never seen those helmets until today, the ones with the horns on the front. I really like the idea, much better than what they normally wear. The helmets should be black with gold horns though. I don't like the glittery silver at all, looked dumb with their other colors. Thought I had accidentally tuned in to the Icecapades.

It was a style they wore 50 years ago, not really sure why they broke those out today.

Probably desperation.

I'm pretty sure, silver is one of CUs school colors.

Those unis are pathetic. Yes, silver is one of their colors. They used silver and black in their BB unis for at least one season back in the 80's.

The Buckeyes had glittery silver helmets the other night against USC. Looked ridiculous. Wonder what their fans think of it. Has teenage girl Aeropostale-type fashion crept into college football?

Wow. That's "unique". The coolest ones I've seen were the ones they wore about six years ago for their CSU game which were black metallic with a silver buffalo on the side. Those were frickin' sweet!

RCJHKU!

I think the least of CU's problems are their ugly uniforms or helmets.


Winning games tends to make whatever fashion they are wearing look better.

They need to go back to these. The last couple of years they have wore some horrible looking jerseys.

I never knew that after all these years.

Wikipedia:

The official school colors are silver and gold, as opposed to the common belief of black and gold. Silver and gold were chosen to represent the state's mineral wealth, but the colors did not look good together on the uniforms, so black was substituted.
