This is from Andre' Woodson....he's playing it coy whether they exist or not...
Would love it
Okay, that's actually pretty damn cool.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Saw where he said his friend designed them. Not sure what that means. I'm not against them but not really in favor of just jocking Oregon's style either.
I really liked the blue one
Not really feelin' them.
me either...but sure would like to see a all blue "checker board" w/ oversized / off-set UK...clawing Wildcat coming out the side.
If we were to get new helmets, they wouldn't be introduced by Andre Woodson over Instagram.
I agree but I think they are really cool even if they are a knockoff of another teams helmet.
They may be like other teams but the others don't have "UK" on them. So, they (other teams helmets) don't look near as good to me!

With UK's marketing department I wouldn't be shocked if they were.

Exactly what I was thinking.
Or, new UK football helmets to be displayed for the first time at the Blue/White scrimmage and modeled by WCS and Pothress! Ha Ha.

You can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig. Win some games first and then worry about fancy helmets. Nothing like trendy unis/helmets on a losing team.
I don't think the people worrying about football games are the same ones worrying about helmets.
that's a poor attempt at an "Oregon" style helmet if that's what they are going for.

Yeah, I don't mind a crazy helmet, necessarily, but those weren't exactly cool. They looked more like Eddie Van Halen's guitar.
You know what would be cool, it would be platinum helmet with blue power K, blue uniform, and platinum pants with blue shoes and gloves.
Make it. Post pics. Take it to Mitch.
If I had those talents I would. I'm sure somebody on here is more artistically gifted than I am.
They are horrible...Hope we never use them...Concentrate on getting better..Quit worrying about uniforms...Ours are fine like they are..These things are atrocious..
Agree. Get better and Nike will send you new stuff.
Those helmets are awful. They look like some of the crap Pitino used to put on the basketball team. You want an idea for a new helmet? Get a freakin black helmet to go with the black unis! That white helmet looks hideous with the black jersey. That white helmet looks like it has duct tape on it. And the other one, well, it's just ugly. I don't see how looking uglier than we play is going to help things.
yep, they suck IMHO.
I think some people miss the entire point of the flashy uniforms. It's a recruiting tool and God knows we need every recruiting advantage that we can muster. I'm all for having modern hip uniforms and helmets. If high school and college age kids think they're cool, then so do I.

I like the helmets with the wins inside of them.
Amen Jason....as a high school teacher and coach, this is the "swag" that the 17yo's like in this era. WE need to learn to like it.
BTW - Arkansas uni's when we played them were AWESOME - I can't for the life of me figure out why we don't use gray or silver with our blue - that would be bad ass!
a football fan in basketball land
Somehow Saban convinces the best talent in the nation without SWAG.
Lets get a coach who is so awesome, kids will wear burlap and leather to come here.
