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

    We WERE going to do this but we couldn't find any leather helmets without face masks. PETA got wind of it and snuffed it out.

    I saw a Kia one time with a license plate that said "MYBENZ."

    I wonder if this picture came from that same guy...

    As has been pointed out, Perkins's teams wore white helmets in the 80s (for a few games). Bryant's did in the 60s. It might be fun to break them out once every 25 years or so - not because it defies tradition, but because it IS our tradition.

    That said, there is NO WAY Saban would deviate from the norm in any way for the SEC CG. Saban is all about developing a routine and sticking to it. We'll wear the white helmets some other time.

    I think that we should wear entirely white uniforms and allow them to slowly become Crimson during the duration of the game from the blood of our opponents.

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

    This past Friday before the IB, I met Tom Albetar at his store. He has a #10 White helmet that AJ was suppose to use for a bowl game within the last couple of years. I don't know which bowl game it was but AJ just signed it and gave it to Tom since they decided not to wear them. It actually looks pretty good even though I prefer the crimson helmets.

    BTW, there was no price on the helmet.

    We used to wear them a good bit. White with crimson stripe and numbers on the side. They looked great with the white unis.

    We wore them in the '71 game with USC in L.A. where we unveiled our switch to the wishbone, and in some other games that year. In '83 I remember Alabama wearing them on the road and some at home. They didn't look as good at home games with the crimson jerseys, imo.

    And he immediately followed up that game saying he didn't like them and it would never happen again on his watch. Or something to that effect.

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

    White helmets is part of our tradition, I think we wore them on road games. I'm all for it. as long as we have crimson numerals & stripe. Grey faskmask just like the old day's. Would not be bad. How about crimson pant's with white stripes. over the black shoes
