[> Re: Helmets 11/2 -- Nameless, 11:20:07 11/04/13 Mon (

Sigh...so many alternate helmets that all the orders now resemble alphabet soup. ;) (And this is with Oregon on a bye week too.)
Also it looks like Temple will not wear 13 different helmets in 13 games, as we now have a duplicate. That's a relief...
Thank you again Mac for keeping all of us up-to-week with all the new helmets.

[> Helmet Summaries Continued -- Mac, 16:39:08 11/04/13 Mon (

You're welcome, gives me something semi-meaningful to do with my life ;)

Didn't finish the orders thus far, so here goes:
Maryland - EFE-HDE-FH
Baylor - DED-FAD-E
Bowling Green - ABA-ABB-AA
Nevada - Looks like they've switched to the white helmets pretty much full time so from now on I'm just going to say if anything different comes up. They've used two other alternate helmets this year: 9/7 vs. UC-Davis they used a throwback of sorts and on 10/26 vs. UNLV they went chrome.
Fresno St - BBA-ABC-BD (A = Red; B = White; C = Throwback; D = Black)
Wyoming - ALB-HAM-NB (M = Pink Decal; N = F minus stripe)
Arizona St - AEF;GHD;AA (E = Black/Black; F = White/Black; G = Big Decals & Numerals; H = Fire)
Arizona - CBE-DEB-DE
Oregon - PQM-ROQ-SO
Oregon St - AAB-BAB-BAC
Kentucky - AAB-BBB-BB
Mississippi St - FAB-AAA-FB (A = Maroon/Maroon; B = Maroon/White; F = Maroon w/ Bulldog)
Missouri - AAC-AAA-BCA (A = Regular; B = Yellow Tiger; C = Chrome Tiger)
Vanderbilt - BAB-ABC-AC (C on website is INCORRECT; stripes are reversed)
Ragin Cajuns - BAA-CDB-AA (A = Red; B = White; C = Black; D = White/Fleur-de-lis)
Georgia St - AAA-ABC-DED (A = Black/Panthers; B = Blue Diagonal GSU; C = Previous Helmet; D = Black Diagonal GSU; E = Blue Diagonal GSU on one side, Panther head on other)

[> Northwestern -- Nameless, 11:08:44 11/05/13 Tue (

Looks like we'll need the letter designation for Northwestern too since they'll have that half-and-half flag helmet for the Wounded Warrior Project (third design for the Wildcats this year).
So... BAA-AAA-AAA-C (A is the current purple, B is white, C is flag) with two regular-season games to go.
(We're already on "R" for Oregon?)

[> Northwestern correction + 2012 order -- Nameless, 11:29:24 11/05/13 Tue (

Disregard the previous message: I forgot about the two black Pro Combat helmets, and apparently Oregon is up to "S".
So for designation of the Northwestern Wildcats helmets, letting A=current purple, B=purple with N-flag, C=black PC with wildcat, D=black PC with N, E=white with purple N, F=WWP flag:
2013's order is EAA-ACA-AAA-F with two games to go. Most likely it will finish with AC (the twelfth game against archrival Illinois), with an extra bowl helmet should they make a bowl.
2012's order is ABA-AAA-ACA-AAC-D (the last was in the Gator Bowl).

Woah! This is notable. KSU had worn the same helmet design uninterrupted for every consecutive game since 1989. I believe they were one of the longest running teams in FBS.

Teams with long streaks still alive:
Tennessee: 1983
Alabama: 1984 (if you ignore the subtle houndstooth design they did a couple of years ago)
Penn State: 1987
Ball State: 1990
Ole Miss: 1995
Clemson: 1996

Penn state wore #42 on the side of their helmets for their final game last year as a tribute to senior Michael mauti, who couldn't play due to injury. And if you ignore the houndstooth, wouldn't you also ignore the camo?

You're right, I forgot about the Penn State tribute number. Regarding the houndstooth, it was so incredibly subtle that most people didn't notice it was there. You would need a pretty big HDTV to see it on close-up shots. KSU's camo was very obvious.

Thanks, I had missed that one, or forgotten about it, or something, but have added it to the site now.
