New Western Michigan Helmet

Recommended Posts

Hmmmmm, let's see, we've had a helmet with a W on it, and we've had a bronco helmet. What do we do for a new helmet? HEY, I know:

This might be the least creative helmet ever. Plus they stole UW's W.

That's the toughest Western Michigan will ever look.

@Spleen -That isn't Washington's W.

If not an exact replica, extremely close.

Not really. They're both upper case W's with serifs if that's what you mean. UW has a unique center point with different weights on either side of it. If it's bad, just say its bad. Don't accuse them of ripping somebody off and then produce evidence that doesn't back it up.

My high school uses a similar w on our football helmets, and ou school colors are exscly the same too. Even our uniforms are similar. However, our helmets at all white w/ a brown facemask.

-----------

Anyway...

This a definite downgrade to thier previous look.

I think stripes on the helmet to match the shoulder stripes to go along with the W would look a whole lot better.

The only similarity is that they are both the letter 'W'.

its also the Boise state logo, isn't it?

I think they had it before Boise had theirs. I believe it was unveiled shortly after the Denver Broncos unveiled their Bronco head in the late 90's.

I think the helmet logo is fine. It's not really an improvement, but they didn't go with anything offensively stupid. I do wish, though, that they'd wear brown jerseys.

Agreed. University of Washington Broncos. That's what I see.

Might as well say it looks just like Wisconsin too. They have a W. So Oregon and Oklahoma are the same too? They both have O's on the helmet? Same with Syracuse and Stanford, both S. Miami and Utah, both U. Idaho and Iowa State, I's. CRAP, even Akron and Arizona both use A's. I better call our AD and have them change it before people around here start calling us out for it.

It's like every school is copying another one! #sarcasm

That might be the dumbest comment I have seen in a long time. Do you really think Washington and Wisconsin's W's are similar?

clearly the sarcasm was lost in the text.

He's saying that there's only so many ways to display a letter, of course there are going to be similarities
