    lol.
    Anyone remember the Shaun Alexander proposed uniform? It was pink or something. The tackiest thing ever described, but he was serious.

    The A on the helmet has the trademark symbol on it, no way that happens on a real uniform. You don't need to trademark the stuff you own.

    We wore white helmets up until the mid-80's. I don't understand why bringing them back would go against tradition, since we actually did wear them at one time in our history. I don't necessarily want to see us wear them, I prefer what the way we look right now, but I've never understood the argument that it goes against our tradition.

    Even if Alabama did go to white helmets for a game, they would most likely have a crimson stripe and crimson numerals, as was the case in the 60's, early 70's and early 80's.

    White helmets are not untraditional, but a logo on the helmets is very untraditional and very gimmicky. This can't be true, the fans would riot.

    Glad you pointed this out as I was about to point out the same. Not that I believe we'll wear them Saturday. But it shouldn't elicit a reaction that indicates it violates something sacred as we have worn them before. I'm ok with it but again I doubt it will happen. And it is easy to mock one of these up to start a rumor. I honestly think we would have heard about it if they were going to do this to get the Bama nation prepared for it.

    Say it isn't so - white helmets?

    The white doesn't bother me - its that script A. I wouldn't have even posted it but coming from Chase gave it some degree of credibility.

    Chase didn't give it credibility. He immediately shot it down.

    Re: Say it isn't so - white helmets?

    i might be in the minority but I am in favor of bringing back the original white helmets with the red stripe down the middle and red numbers. not these ones though with the script A.

    wish we weren't wearing our white jerseys saturday...don't like them very much.


    and just fyi, saban did do the nike combat jersey against ms st a couple of years ago.
