Subject: 2016 FBS helmets--Week 5

It's irking that some of the more minor changes like the mask color must warrant as a "new design" to the smaller schools (yes, MAC, I'm looking at you). Next week will be the start of a pink infusion.

[> 2016 FBS helmets--Week 6 -- Nameless, 16:07:20 10/13/16 Thu (

Instead of a new thread, I'll add to this one to avoid making some of the older messages go out of bounds.

A little surprised that there is very little pink so far. However, the trade-off is that there were far more alternate helmets than an average week. Two games were postponed due to the hurricane.

Teams that have an asterisk before their names have won six games and are thus bowl-eligible; they will also have at least one more helmet design to cover in addition to the original dozen.

Just to let you know, the Boston College helmet is the red bandana helmet, which they have used each of the last three years. It has a story behind the whole thing, but is a tribute, and the stripe is to represent a red paisley bandana
