The college football metallic helmet craze has officially hit the FCS-level.
Photos of several different helmets for the Florida A&M Rattlers were floating around Twitter on Wednesday and HBCUGameday.com posted that the team's equipment staff are experimenting with several different designs for the 2014 season. All of them are extremely sharp.

Seriously, these helmets are awesome. I am especially a fan of the white and the metallic green versions. The team equipment staff mentioned that they are experimental, but with the positive reaction they have been getting on the internet the past few days, maybe we'll see the Rattlers wearing them on the field next season.
