Recommended Posts

I do not agree with this list.

How do you rank the difference between traditional and innovation.

 

In my opinion they should have been 2 lists and tOSU wouldn't be top in either.

 

While of course we would be 1st in innovation, we started the new looks. I like Texas best in the traditional.

I love my Ducks!

 

everyone  else, 2nd, 3rd or who cares.

Talk about a subjective list!

 

The winged helmet,  with the O on the back is 2nd to none!!!

In any color!

 

Go Ducks!!

(Everyone else sucks!)

Ok, after taking off my green and gold tinted glasses, I unequivocally state that the Oregon Ducks have the best helmets, and uniforms in college football. Period. Final. End of story. Enough said.

 

The 🐪 has made his ruling!

I thought stickers on helmets were a thing of the past! I think any helmet looks better without them.

 

Love the Duck helmets, they are #1 with me. 🙂

I don’t have green and gold tinted glasses - Not even close - and Oregon easily has the best helmets and uniforms. I get “tradition” when it comes to sports, but a bunch of the helmets ranked high are just boring and ugly (Alabama, Penn St.). They get put high on the list because the programs have winning traditions, but the helmets and uniforms are just old, stodgy and boring.

Exactly... There are two schools of thought on uniforms. The traditional, which are typically just the blue bloods, or the more innovative...

 

Oregon always tops the lists if the person making the list likes the innovation. 

 

Oregon usually makes the list but is low on the list if the person values tradition more. 

 

Maybe some might change their toon a little when Oregon wins a national championship. 

 

Also... Recruits love Oregon's uniforms so that matters more.

Tradition and “Blue-Bloods” be damned!!

 

iconic, classic, traditional DOES NOT EQUAL “best”

 

Slapping a jersey number on a solid color helmet should be grounds for automatic ridicule into perpetuity! Yes, Bama, I’m talking about you.

 

Don’t get me started on Notre Dame! One solid color? “Kkkggghh!! Paging the creative department. Anyone in?” I believe the article mentioned the ND helmets were “iconic”.

 

Nokia “brick” phones were also “iconic”, but they wouldn’t win any “best of” contests.

 

In no particular order (except the first one), my favorites are:

- Oregon

- BYU

- Clemson

- FSU

- Miami (I know we don’t want to cheer anything Mari Cristbal is a part of, but that color combo is, as the kids these days say, “lit”)

- Tennessee

- Boise State

- Oklahoma St.

- UCF

The moment the article started with "coolest-looking, most iconic" I knew the list was going to be garbage.  Those are two completely different things.  The Model T and VW Beetle are iconic, would you argue those are two of the coolest-looking cars ever?

 

Most iconic?  Basically it's huge, popular programs that have kept the same design forever:  USC, Bama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, etc.

 

Coolest-looking?  That's a completely different list.  Some of the special helmets from the military academies are among the coolest-looking helmets I've seen.  Many of Oregon's designs.  Some of the alternates I've seen from SDSU, Indiana, ASU, and Northwestern.  But a pure white helmet with a navy blue stripe?  A crimson helmet with a white block number?  What in the world makes those cool?

 

(Then, of course, you have some that just go way overboard, like Oregon's pink helmets or whatever Maryland tried to do with that abysmally ugly state flag.  I got vertigo just glancing at that thing.)

 

IMHO, the only "iconic" helmets that are cool are Michigan, FSU, and Texas.  The rest are simply boring.

     A helmet should suggest what you think of yourself - what’s going on inside that helmet?  So, if you like surprises, enjoy turning heads and embracing change, you’re going to like ours. If, on the other hand,  you like things to be predictable, conservatively unimaginative and to always remain the same, you’ll like the blue bloods. Tradition is a funny animal.

The original mallard head helmets from 1999 season started it all. Every evolution after that was “copy cat”

I really don't like it when bias affects an objective analysis of which college football team has the best helmets.

 

I've devoted hours of research studying the dozens and dozens of helmets worn by teams all over the U.S. I can say without hesitation or reservation that the following helmets are the top-10 best:

 

10.  The ones with Mallards on them

 

  9.  Yellow and green helmets with Ringed Teals

 

  8.  Some have Canvasbacks on them--those ones

 

  7.  Red-breasted Mergansers are a classy look

 

  6.  Hooded Mergansers look pretty good, too

 

  5.  I like waterfowl on helmets; they definitely make the list

 

  4.  What's better than a Northern Pintail on a helmet?

 

  3.  Those worn by that really good team in Eugene

 

  2.  Coach Dan Lanning's new team has cool ones

 

  1.  After days and days of meticulous analysis--Oregon Ducks helmets are #1

Thank you for being objective and fair. It's so hard these days to find non-biased opinions.
