There's subtlety, and then there's that...
Green, yellow, gray, white, fluorescent yellow, "carbon", reflective, and now pink? This is too much of a "shocking" pink, not quite the hue that is usually associated with breast cancer awareness.
I'm pretty sure that there haven't been any pink helmet shells before this one. I know of New Mexico State being one of the first to have the pink ribbon in 2008, and there are probably several teams who had a pink version of their logo in the years thereafter.
Now watch as Oregon trots out a version with the winged helmet sometime next year... How long until Mr. Arey has to start designating helmets as "AA", "BB", etc. for Oregon?

"I was gonna get a candy bar; the button I was supposed to push was "HH", so I went to the side, I found the "H" button, I pushed it twice. Fuckin'...potato chips came out, man, because they had an "HH" button for Christ's sake! You need to let me know. I'm not familiar with the concept of "HH". I did not learn my AA-BB-CC's. God god, dammit dammit." - Mitch Hedberg

Will Oregon actually wear pink helmets, or just announce that they will, and then not do so, as Bethune-Cookman did last year? (I would assume the former)

I could see it as a pink ribbon, but not with helmets and shoes.
