New black and gold helmets with awesome chain/anchor stripe for Vandy! https://twitter.com/coach_chancevu/status/629046288705847296

Just came to post those. They look great!

I really like the concept. I think the V-Star would have been better if it was scaled down a little smaller. I also would have liked to see gold logo/stripe on the white helmet.

On a side note... it is interesting to see how far off the decals are on the helmet. If you look at the back view, look at the points of the stars compared to where holes in the helmet are.

Not feeling Vandy's helmets. It feel a little too cheesy for me. I like the incorporation of the anchor element, but this feels a little too over the top.

Over the top is the phrase I was thinking of. It's something I might think would look kind of cool in my head but discard when I actually saw it in front of me. Maybe a skinnier, subtler chain and no anchor might work?

Good old Preston Parker. Anyone wanna get drunk and fall asleep in the Drive Thru of the McDonalds on Tennessee?

He went to FSU? I could have sworn he went to North Alabama? /s

Went to FSU first and got kicked off the team after his Junior year then he transferred to North Alabama.

I think just a little bit of scaling on the chain and anchor would have done a lot of good.

When it comes to this trend of putting logo decals on the back of the helmets... I actually really like it provided the logo on the back is somewhat symmetrical. I think it looks fantastic on Oregon's helmets. I think it looks solid on the Vanderbilt helmets. I think it fails with San Diego State's. SDSU's Arrow SD logo is somewhat even... but not symmetrical. Vandy's is similar... its not exactly symmetrical but its damn close. I think that is the key distinction when determining if these logos on the front center or back center of the helmet actually work.

I've got a bad feeling about this.

Way to re-ignite some controversy, Adidas.

It's a good thing you don't outfit Florida State, otherwise we'd probably get a tie-in with Trojan or Durex.

Why not have normal stripes on the pants instead of the quad stripes

Yes! That basically ruins the whole look.

Did nobody at Adidas realize the association people are going to make between advertisements like this and paying for recruits?
