UAB Helmet Change

Recommended Posts

If that lettering is black then it's a downgrade. It would've looked better in green.

It green,it's probably the bad lighting that makes it look like its black.

Like. I prefer letters to mascots on college helmets. The combination usually works too.

Don't you mean the JSU look?

Hahaha. ;)

I think he means the Savannah State look.

They had helmets with a shield design not too long ago. UAB across the top part and the dragon coming out below. Those were the best.

I like these. It makes UAB more easily identifiable, since let's face it, they're not on TV every week. Plus the dragon head is cool and keeps it from being an overly plain helmet.

If you can't beat 'em...copy 'em?

All in all, I like it. I'm a huge fan of block lettering.

That's a good point about the fact they're rarely on TV, so it would be good to have the name on it. I just always felt the LSU helmets looked jumbled and I think this will do the same.

But ironically, they CAN beat them (or at least, they could) in 2000

Looks better than the old helmet but there's still something I don't like about the dragon itself. I feel like that part needs a bit of a redesign.

I really like the dragon design and really liked it alone on the helmet last year, but this is OK with me. Most of the teams in the conference use the school initials in some form on their helmets.

Not a bad look. I liked the shield better but this is not a downgrade IMO. The sorry template is though.

That Dragon needs more majesty...

and a beefy arm.

I've always like LSU's helmet look, and I believe this is an upgrade for UAB. As someone has already stated, they are not exactly a household brand around the country. The added lettering helps I think.
