    Re: White T

    I hope doesn't mean red helmets only, but Skips last words in that announcement was " this is the look we will wear today, and the look we will wear from now on". Remember there was a time when we only wore the red helmet and there are some other teams out there right now that only wear one style of helmet and that is all.

    If that is what they want to do, that is fine by me, it has always been a very recognizable helmet just being red. Just glad the white T is back.

    I haven’t asked Skip specifically but I imagine he meant this was NOT just a throwback for last night only.

    If he doesn’t use White anymore then he has wasted thousands of dollars on some equipment he secured as a personal project a few years back.

    Yup that is what I got. The white T decal isn't a one time thing. We will wear it on the Red lids from now on.

    I didn't get the impression that we are ditching our expensive white helmets.

    The red lids with white T were beautiful! Tradition, beauty, and common sense prevailed. Thank you!!

    I think the triple stripe is a bit too much for the red helmet but not a big deal. (However, I do like having the triple stripe on the white helmet.) I'm just happy we can see the T on our red helmets again!

    No stripe is best for tradition. I like the triple stripe over the Dooley stripe.

    The white helmets were very nice looking and I hope we don't completely do away with them, BUT the MAIN helmet should ALWAYS be red. we could throw the white in 2-3 times a year.

    White is here to stay. As Dawgpix said, we have a lot of money invested in the white helmets and most agree that they match up well with many combos.

    See I'm partial to the

    Red hats
    Blue jerseys
    White pants

    To me that's the best combo

    Closely followed by the

    White hats
    Red jerseys
    White pants

    The red, blue and blue ranks right above the red, red and red in my book and both are at the bottom

    Correct. Prior to 1989. Our first game without the triple stripe was our first game in I-A against the Cajuns at Cajun Field to open the 1989 season.

    When the state T was first introduced in 1968 there were no stripes on the helmet. I do not know when the first stripes appeared on the red helmet. Of course prior to the red helmet with the state T we wore simple white helmets with a single red stripe.

    Correct. I was referring to the 80s. The helmets were without stripes through the 70s. They first appeared in 1983 and stayed through the 1988 season. The helmets were without stripes from 1989 through 2006. The single stripe came in with Dooley in 2007.

    A.L Williams first brought the double stripes in. Coach Peace did away with them, and Dooley brought a single stripe back.
