I noticed that too.

I'd like to see us do a red metallic helmet at some point. I imagine that alternative helmets are just too pricey for FCS, so we'd have to make a switch.

You guys need to adjust your tvs then.

Looks a lot like matte orange to me. :think:

They looked orange to me too...Redbirds had the block I helmets first though. Red helmets with the white block "I" sometime in the middle 60's. I saw a photo in the Redbird football book that came out late last year. I thought the block "I" helmets from back then looked pretty nice but I would not do away with the current helmet. It would make a nice throw back change if it was affordable but that is probably a no. Either way I like the Illini helmets...they still don't play very well on the field but they look good!

They are orange, but I would agree that I think their orange has taken on a darker and more red hue than what it used to be. I'd like it better if it weren't matte, personally.

I like our current helmets ok. Would love just one stripe down the middle though. The "thumbs up" Reggie stickers have been a great addition.

The best part of their helmets Friday night was the part where they got blown out. :lol:

I like the white, but would also like to see a silver alternative.

The main improvement I'd like to see is another helmet sticker. Seeing Reggie in full form is okay, I'd rather see the "thumbs up" reggie too or maybe something as simple as a Reggie 'footprint'. just something slightly smaller/leaner. the OCD in me gets annoyed when the stickers are just placed randomly throughout the helmet like this image depicts:

Just too much "white space" on the current sticker...
