    ESPN will have an easier time calling us gag state with the new look.

    Nothing looks good in matte.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    For clarification, this is a new deal..but not bad in my opinion. Sooooo here's the deal:

    Other than van gorder we never had painted helmets until 2015. Before that, we just used the blue molded shell. Any shiny finish was provided by a chemical called "hi-shine" rubbed on the helmet before kickoff. The last two seasons were a glossy navy paint. And now you see the matte look...which is actually closer in resemblance to the mold look, imo

    Secondly, we don't have practice helmets. GS has two sets of helmets, a blue and an alternate. The alternate is sent off to be repainted every year for the new alt. Unless things have changed very recently, we always practiced in the game helmets, soooooo the matte finish could look better in December than the paint or mold look did because it's easier to maintain.

    Yup. I remember thinking BVG had screwed up the helmets too when I first saw them back when he showed up. They looked almost black. Too shiny.

    Old helmets looked better than the painted ones. Old is better than new. I-AA better than FCS, which was better than FBS, which isn't the BCS.
