ACC Helmets + alt's

Pretty interesting set of iterations. Some thoughts:

VT should stick with what they have. I don't think the orange or white work.

I really like the white Carolina helmet.

I think the Navy works best for UVA, but there's something about that white one that works well. Kind of a mix between the current identity, and those old plain white UVA helmets from my childhood.

The gold Wake helmet is nice.

I'm surprised by this, but I really like the orange Miami helmet. Never would happen, of course.

The blue duke helmet is PERFECT. Exactly the appropriate treatment of black.

Love the black Maryland helmet. It would go better with their current scheme than the white one.

if you had told me that i'd like the way a green miami helmet, a black duke helmet and a purple clemson helmet looked before seeing these, i would have said you were crazy...i don't like any of these better than what they have now, but the don't make me want to vomit...in fact, they look pretty good

your helmets never cease to amaze, axl

That's pretty interesting. You should do that for some other conferences when you have time (SEC B))

I think these could work:

White Florida State

Red NC State

ALL Virginia

Black Maryland

ALL Duke

ALL Wake Forest

White North Carolina

Orange VTech (with alt Orange jersey)

Just what I was waiting for...my beloved 'Noles!!! (How much did it REALLY pain you, axl, to do concepts for your most hated archrival in the whole wide world??? :D)

I aint too sold on the garnet one, and the gold one is an all-time classic. But that white one...WOW. On the days the 'Noles go white-on-white, that helmete would be PERFECT--like during the opening game between FSU & UNC back in '03 a.k.a. "the Greg Jones Hit game" (and anyone who either saw that game or highlights of it KNOWS what I'm talking about--just go ask Dexter Reid).

Speaking of UNC, that white shell looks pretty darn good, too. But I to this day have yet to see a navy UNC alt of ANY KIND (unless I wasn't looking hard enough), but even without one, the navy dome still looks good. Hell ALL OF THEM--well, most all of them--look good. As was mentioned by someone previous, the black UM shell would be great with the Terps' black tops. (Back in the days of LaMont Jordan, didn't UM actually HAVE black shells?)

I ain't liking the black NC State one, but that white UVA dome has some real "classic" potential. Maybe they should try that one game as a specialty to gauge fan interest.

Oh...and the orange VaTech shell loks REAL GOOD.

Keep up the good work, axl!

Quiet, you... :hockeysmiley: (still recovering from watching that "tackle")

UNC wore a white shell for a while back through the early 1970s IIRC. It looks OK, but it's Carolina blue or it's not a UNC helmet. (Special exemptions for projects like this - which, by the way, is phenomenal - great work Axl, absolutely no suggestions.)

Yes - UM had a black shell - with the red "M" monogram that had the flag banner draped off of it (IIRC they also had a plain red "M" monogram).

They are all beautiful.

Please keep this up for all major conferences.

The ultimate judgement on a helmet is if it works better than the current helmet.

In this case, the blue Duke helmet is better.

The red Maryland and white Virginia are also better than current.

You do recall correctly. The plain red M came immediately before the M with the state flag banner.
