There is a large sect of Alabama fans who really want the program to bring back the white helmets with red details that the team wore back in the 1960s through the late 1970s.
It’s a unique look when compared to the current crimson helmets, but it wouldn’t stray out of the realm of tradition, right? White is in the color scheme for the Crimson Tide, so it should be okay.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban revealed that he does not want the white helmets to make a return. This means that for as long as Saban is at the helm of the program, there won’t be white helmets.
“To me, there’s an expectation. When we run out of the tunnel, this is the brand,” Saban recently stated when discussing a change from their current look.
Saban mentioned white helmets when talking about #Alabama's tradition and why it doesn't have different uniforms. "To me, there's an expectation. When we run out of the tunnel, this is the brand."
