If you'll look closer at the helmets, they have a raised ridge down the middle, with enlarged rectangular air holes, which may not be bad, given the warmth of S. FL., not that I'd want to stay with them, since they look like motorcycle helmets. BTW, a long -time friend from Coral Gables posted today on Facebook that the "spring" - "spring?!?!?" - is the warmest on record, with plants blooming which normally don't bloom until March...
That helmet is a Riddell 360 or Revo Speed. I think some of the players have wore them throughout this year.
I don't mind spending money, but I hate wasting it.
We're probably in the minority but I wouldn't mind it either...I wouldn't mind a matte look either though. I like some of the black matte helmets I've seen on some others. That pewter chrome look would look sharp with Bama's crimson & white though!
