Southern Miss’ equipment staff has had a busy spring trying to figure which helmets the Golden Eagles are going to wear this fall.
Last week, they tweeted out a shiny black helmet with chrome stickers that was interesting, but kinda ‘meh’ in my humble opinion.
This week, the equipment staff has been throwing out other helmet ideas, including this multi-colored lid that’s just, well, interesting.
That two-tone matte look is slowly gaining some popularity. Syracuse had a similar helmet last year that sold for more than $2,000 at auction. Not sure either is going to tempt Oregon to try the same stunt with green and gold.
The Golden Eagles also threw out another yellow helmet -- they wore a yellow helmet last year (see photo above) -- and a black matte helmet with more chrome stickers. When is Southern Miss gonna bite the bullet and just come out with a chrome helmet? The people demand it, Southern Miss!
At this rate, Southern Miss is going to have more helmets than it has wins.
