New Rutgers Helmet

Can we please not start the "Stars & Stripes" argument again? It's the same thing everytime. We all know where we each stand. Can't we just leave it at that?

Even though the reason behind a helmet like this should be worth discussing I actually agree with this...we've gone 'round and 'round on this and feel we're at a point where this has become an abortion argument (we've see it all and no minds are changing).

I know that's hard, because my first comment would probably be something like "but blue is not in their color scheme", which is kind of an opening.

That all said, I think if they feel like doing this, it would be better with a red helmet. This design does dilute their identity and I think a red helmet would counter that somewhat.

Ugh. Just what we needed.

Are they donating a ton of money to veterans' organizations, or is this a truly empty gesture?

Well considering its an Army home game I think most of the money will go to military in one way or another.

Washington did the same thing for 9/11. They wore a special helmet, but their regular home uniforms.

My guess is white helmet, white unis. I'm guessing this game was a designated Army home game that was moved to NYC.

Last season was at the Meadowlands, 2009 was at West Point, and 2008 was at Rutgers.

Yes, it is an Army home game. Last year was at the Meadowlands was a Rutgers home game:

I said this in the CFB thread: Before this season, Rutgers never wore a helmet any other color than red. Now they break out the black and roll out this white (which could very well switch decals and become another regular helmet).
