    I like the helmet concept. The implementation is another story.

    TCU did this with the helmets this year, too. There is a pattern to replicate the horned frog scales. It is awesome up close!

    I'm watching the Miami-Maryland game on ESPN. Those Maryland uni's/helmets are........interesting.

    People in Oregon are going "those are some trippin uni's." It looks like the state flag sneezed on them.

    As UMD guy and a resident, I'm thinking of moving to FL.

    Looks like Lady GaGa and Ed Hardy threw up on those uniforms horrible!

    I was thiking about and if your school does not have one the classic uniforms and/or logos, why not do something different. For the most part what type schools are doing this: ones with shaky at best football histories: Oregon. TCU, Maryland. Nobody really remembers anything about thier logos or uniforms, so strking into the innovative, but ugly unknown gives them something of a signature look(s).

    I am confused. I see that turtle shell helmet and heard people talking about it however when I turned on the game they were wearing those gawd aweful Maryland flag helmets as posted in that picture above. When did they wear the turtle helmet?

    They have multiple helmets. The flag, a black version with the flag stripe, that turtle version with flag stripe, something else I am trying to put out of my mind.

    OK, so they have not wore the turtle thing yet? They wore the Maryland flag thing the other night, unless they wore the turtle thing in the first half. I tuned in during the second half.

    BTW, this uniform stuff is ridiculous. As someone posted above by doing this you are admitting that your school has no football tradition.

    I heard that they will have a different uniform for each game. Something under armor did

    I actually liked these uniforms, but clearly I'm in the minority opinion here.

    The resdskins need to implement that design asap. Would be the best NFL helmet hands down.
