>I think I predicted about a year ago that some team would soon use a different helmet design in each game one year - perhaps Temple will be the first to do so. They've used a different design in each game this year!

So, now any permutation of shiny and flat matte shells, white/burgundy helmet shells (there's one with a subliminated design), white/burgundy facemasks, presence/absence of stripes, and either the academic "T" or "TEMPLE" are fair game now? (I'm assuming even the owl head may even show up, even though it's not likely considering their record while wearing them...)

And then there's this "Acres of Diamonds" gala logo used against Army on 10/19 (I think it's reported before) for an exhibition to promote their lung center (so that's definitely a one-time-use event).
I would have thought that if there are 13 different helmet designs in one year, Oregon would be the one do it, but this is really pushing the limits for us helmet enthusiasts.

>But - I'm so far behind in updating the site that there may be others, also. I haven't really yet studied Oregon, Tulsa, Wyoming, Louisiana-Lafayette, and many others...working through American Athletic Conference at the moment.

I know for sure that Oregon has repeated a design or two before this year, but that's not saying much. Thanks to Mac, I'm pretty sure that the most complete catalogue of which helmet was used when is within each weekly thread.

I seem to remember Virginia Tech came pretty close to doing that one year.
