Follow the link to see all 12 and click on each team to see alternative concept helmets
Missouri designer Charles Sollars created faux helmet designs for teams in the Pac-12 and SEC.
I thought a few of those were pretty sweet. RTR
really, why did you even open the link? it was pretty clear in the subject line what this thread was about.
the miss st and ole miss ones were nice
Most of those are awesome!
Kentucky and Vandy should make theirs happen. UF has a good one as well. The rest are not ready for Prime Time and anything other than crimson with the numbers on the side, or a one-off homage to the old white helmets should never grace a Bama players head.

I'd like a one game change just to piss off all the traditionalists but not to that. Ours was the worst one. Some of the others were pretty cool though.
I like the Bama one but instead of the script A, keep the numbers. Pretty cool.
I thought Auburn's were pretty cool. I've always liked the Bengals' helmets.
some of those are badass
I actually like the Bama helmet
the Arky one is sweet, too
it looks like they got lazy with the South Carolina helmet
Very creative... I usually don't like this kind stuff but some of those were cool
I, for one, love our uniforms, but I am open to one game alternative. This beats white helmets, IMHO.
I love Alabama's. I would love to have it as a souvenir, but I don't want to see it on the field.
I though they all looked badass. I wish we'd lose the houndstooth idea and just keep it Crimson and make some awesome numbers on the helmets in place of the script A, OR Crimson with the script A. I would love to see both of those instead of the houndstooth, but the helmets are sweer nonetheless IMHO.
I think those are pretty sweet. Some of them anyway. The Tennessee helmet was probably the worst looking. I like the USCe helmets a lot. I like our helmets as well but the uniforms would have to carry on the same style in order to look right.
I thought this one was pretty cool but would liked to have seen a different font used for the numbers.
The guy is quite talented. Would accept the Red Tide helmet with white stripe and subtle houndstooth background with
number, little changed from the classic Alabama helmet style. Like the Florida helmet, even like the barn helmet. RTR!
White with an crimson eyed gray elephant face on it like LSU's tiger
I really like some of these. The Vandy and Arky helmets are sweet. Like the MSU one....Ole Miss needs a splash of red in the logo and it would be good. Kentucky needs to go back to the Power K look on white IMO. Love that old school look.
And the UGA concept is much better than anything they have done recently. Maybe Bama could do something a tad different with unis/helmets for the spring game? Just for fun.
I am old school at heart but I don't mind the concepts and an occasional accent or so.
Some of those are pretty cool. UT's sucks though. I like Vandy, Florida, Ole Miss the most but UGA and Auburn aren't bad either.
I don't hate our's but don't want to see it on the field. I think our helmet is simply too classic and awesome to radically change it like that.
Vandy should go with it. Best looking one of the bunch.
The only thing I might change about ours is the overall size of the numbers. Make them thicker like the old days.

I'd put in on a shelf, but don't let them wear it. Some of the others looked pretty good though...like Arky's or So. Car.
