Today being media day, we should be in for some goodies as the day goes along. Among those goodies will be new helmets for the Hokies annual white effect game.
I got a sneak peek at these helmets yesterday, but they went public today on BeamerBall’s website. I liked the helmets when I saw them yesterday, but the outcry on Twitter has been mostly negative. Take a look for yourself.
The Hokies will be wearing these helmets against Austin Peay, so if you truly are embarrassed by these helmets there’s a good chance that they won’t be seen by too many people watching on ESPN3.
I’m honestly kind of surprised at the backlash on Twitter about these helmets. I’ve heard a lot of people clamoring for new helmets, designs, etc… but I guess beggars can be choosers in this case.
In other uniform news, I got to see the new Virginia Tech camo uniforms in person yesterday as well, and they turned out very nice. I think people are going to be very pleased with them once they actually see more than just a sketch from the Nike website. So if you aren’t a fan of these helmets, take solace in our military appreciation day uniforms. Just trust me on this one.
What do you think about these helmets? Leave a comment below.
