Colorado Helmet Stripe?

Recommended Posts

Last Saturday I went to Colorado's spring game and i noticed that on every quarterbacks helmet there was a white stripe

All the qb's were already wearing a gold jersey to show they can't be hit, so does anyone know what the stripe is for?

I know you already mentioned the gold jersey thing, but I all can think of is that it is to protect the QB. Maybe some players see the helmet rather than the jersey and hit the QB. It might just be for extra clarification. Intersting find.

I was there and i noticed this too. the above picture is not from the spring game though, in the official game both teams wore game jerseys with quarterbacks in gold and white game pants (i know in the past they just wore practice jerseys).

Might be so that when the coaches watch the film they can more easily see where the quarterbacks are looking. It seems like I've seen this before for that reason.

i guess that makes sense, but do they actually film practices and scrimmages?

Absolutely!!! Hell - when I was in high school ('92 - '94) several of our practices were filmed (especially during 2-a-days) and all of our scrimmages were filmed.

oh wow, i guess my high school team is way behind the time. our practices are never filmed, or inter-squad scrimmages.

Heck, a lot of the spring games are televised these days.

true, but the stripes on the helmets didn't just apear for the spring game, they were used before then for regular practices

Oh, sure. I was just making a point about how big spring football has become. It has long been a big deal in some places, but it's taking on the status of a second season with all the hype.

If they are doing this to see where the QB is looking, it would seem like it would be easier to see a black stripe. That white stripe is kind of hard to see in these pictures.

It's easier to see white on CU's field than black, especially with a bunch of black jerseys running around.

those helmets look huge compared to the rest of the pads on their body. I can't help but think that the huge helmets are the problem with football's brain safety initiative.

the only time a player is injured, and hasn't been left on the ground after being hit by a heavy helmet is when he has twisted his knee, back, or has has just endured a muscle injury like a hamstring pull. players are injured because their helmets are too big for helmet to helmet collision. i played football and probably left with some long-term injuries in 8th grade! rugby.

the most important position, hands down, is the defensive back. I liked making ass-breaking hits on skinny receivers I could fit my arms around. I also got rocked in the helmet region a couple times on both sides.

Gets me excited for professional football, where the crowds are smaller, but it doesn't matter. if you like something, you should have the best. it doesn't make sense to not. the ncaa tournament should be implemented into the NBA game. a 30-team tournament every weekend in every NBA city. It'll be called the NBA Grand Prix: Oklahoma City, or something like that every weekend for 29 weeks. the last tournament will be for the NBA championship held in the arena of the winner of the championship the previous season. This, so that the NCAA will not be confused with the NBA for prominence.

Saw the Buffaloes campus in Boulder late last year. long lines at the sandwich shop and cold, huge, cold and snowy buildings and landscape. played baseball for College of Santa Fe.

The helmet stripe is so that the quarterback can be reminded to have more padding jammed into his helmet later. set for microphones or something?

And this has what to do with the thread?

I was in high school so long ago that we had sketch artists at our scrimmages...

Fixed it for you.

Bravo. That wins the "babbling semi-coherent stoner rant of the day" award.
