New Rice helmet for 2007?


Derby

Recommended Posts

If this is real, I have 2 questions:

Is that black? If not, that's the darkest navy I've ever seen.

Is the ® really necessary?

It looks dark navy to me, a lot like the very dark Texans helmet. If this is real bravo with the success of the baseball team since changing to this font the old english "R" is what everyone identifies Rice with around here.

Oh, I am hoping this isn't just a mock-up. Rice has great baseball uniforms (except for the BP jerseys they wore in an actual CWS game this year... yeesh), and they could have great football uniforms as well, but the helomet logo never looked very good. The blackletter R would work perfectly; I am actually surprised they hadn't done this sooner.

Between Rice's possible change and A&M's very tasteful update, hats off to Texas schools for coming up with new looks that are solid, tasteful, and that work well!

I always thought Rice used a deep purple color. Or maybe I'm just imagining things.... or maybe I'm high on LSD.

The navy jersey set that Rice wears isn't the BP jersey, it's their alt. jersey set. They don't have BP jerseys.

They wear those navy jerseys with the with shoulder stripes fairly regularly, more often than they wear the grey road tops.

The yellow isn't in the logo only, I think they have a yellow outline on their numbers. If I'm not mistaken.

Anyway, the helmet is ok, but I prefer the wings IMO. This just seems too plain and I think it needs some yellow in there.

Since it's a mini helmet and he's making money off a logo that isn't his, yes. He has to get their permission and put the ® on. It won't be on the real helmet.

When was the last time they had the wings? I could've sworn that last year, they had the owl coming head-on at the viewer with the "R" (on a shield?) in its talons. That in itself was a downgrade from the wings.
