College Football 2014 Season

I'm still trying to figure out the stripes. Did the original helmet have one going left to right. And the middle strip stops at the top of the helmet?

Bringing back the maroon helmets with the Gamecock in the circle would be awesome.

Those would be great, but Carolina wears GARNET, not maroon.

GoGamecocks.com reported that Carolina will wear the regular white helmets with black jerseys and black pants.

Those A&M helmets are the best throwbacks I have ever seen.

I agree and I hate admitting that as I normally don't like the helmets that HGI creates.

FSU screwed up the new jerseys. Love the garnet numbers, but subtle differences like this will irritate me because it's so minor. They are using the new template and cutting the collar short which is different to the home and alt jerseys. I really hope they put them all on this template now, though I will dislike the collar tweak.

New fsu jersey is in the new (Mach speed?) template. Which actually looks worse because the collar is cut off. Numbers look nice tho. I don't have a picture.

That collar looks even more of a joke now. What an epic failure of these uniforms.

Nike's templates really do go one step forward, two steps back.

Glad to see a solve to the sweatbox issue, but the new collar and zipper mesh is just bad bad bad.

I always felt like Florida-Georgia would be a great color-vs-color matchup. Indeed I was right. Hopefully they wear normal sets and don't bust out any Halloween-themed candy corn helmet.

WOW! HGI just took the game to a whole new level. i have never seen such attention to detail in a helmet. the helmet reminds me of Fender relic guitars, like they just pulled these babys out of the closet after sitting for 50 years. love the stitching, love the worn away paint, love the rust. paired with the logos on the jerseys this is one of the best designs i've ever seen for a football uniform.

A closeup image of the rusty facemask.

They wore rusty facemasks back then?

Yeah they clearly went overboard with the faux aging/rust. As the color photos of the '39 originals show the helmets were pretty bright and clean (for leather).

I mean you have to think... It's honoring the 1939 team... Metal just doesn't stay clean cut for 75 years
