Thread: Matte Helmets?

  1. #1

    Default Matte Helmets?

    I've noticed it in practice pictures without REALLY noticing it, but then there's this...

    Per @UniWatch, Auburn's season opening opponent - Georgia Southern - will be sporting matte helmets. Previously glossy finished. pic.twitter.com/RWD2puKJdj

    FWIW, Clint is typically spot-on when it comes to uniform stuff. He runs an entire blog dedicated to Auburn's uniforms and has recently started one for UAB, too.

    I for one love that look. Been wanting to see that for quite a while.

    I personally like it. It still keeps the tradition of the Blue but just with a subtle change and plus it looks great.

    I like the idea of it. To me this doesn't change much in terms of tradition. I won't lose sleep over Gloss vs Matte. I do hope it's not considered our alternate uniform.

    I don't mind either one but I prefer those shiny blue helmets

    Only chance of this team winning less than 6 games is if it's ravenged by injuries. Anybody predicting 4 wins or some crap like that is clueless. Post Arkansas St game is going to be fun around here to watch the crow being eaten. Heck, even post UNH is going to provide some fun.

    I just figured they were practicing in the matte helmets to keep the gloss ones purty for the first game. Ill be ok either way we go. This wouldn't be considered an alternate. They will save that for a home game.

    I think Matte looks better than the shiny blue helmets. Plus, it might keep the helmets from getting so hot without the glossy coating. Wouldn't be opposed to slapping a White GS on the sides either but I know...tradition yada yada

    I kind of wondered if they weren't practice helmets, too, honestly. I'm kinda hoping they're not.
