Chase Goodbeard retweeted this " supposedly a player tweeted this picture. I hope it isn't true" . Probably no truth to it but what would you guys think about this? The Tide in all white for the SEC championship?

I kind of like it. However, I would rather have crimson #'s instead of the crimson A!
That looks ok, but please no.
Hopefully we have learned from all of the gimmicks gone wrong.
It is an Alabama sticker put on a white helmet. Even if we were going to change our look, I doubt it would be stickers.
The jersey itself - badass
The idea of being anything close to Georgia in terms of gimmicks - please no
looks like something sharp I would like to have up in my Alabama room.
Wearing it on the field? No

Personally I would love it, just to watch all the uptight fans lose their minds LOL
How do you think logos/numbers are applied to helmets? No way to tell the difference between a plastic sticker or vinyl decal from that photo.
I think if we did a flat crimson helmets would be super cool. I know not everyone is up for change... but who knows..
I happen to LOVE the white helmet, but only once or twice a season. I don't see what all the negative fuss is about. The one in the picture isn't what would be used though. This one doesn't have a crimson stripe down the center.

Yes please. Love the idea of white helmets! Indifferent to #'s vs the A
Because it has a white border around it. If it were a vinyl decal it would not have the white border.
What do you think the numbers and stripes are now?
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
This. There are stickers on our helmets right now. You see the numbers half peeling off all the time.
Hell to tha naw!

There was an awesome pic from a few years ago that caught a sticker in flight after it came off a player's helmet.
Every helmet in America is basically a Sticker Logo put on the sides of the helmet. Whether its a number, a mascot, or the teams name/initials.....its a Sticker.
IF and I have no clue but if this is something we would wear, we would not notice the white on the field at all. We only see it there because its such a close up of the helmet. And, maybe that's intentional anyways? My only point is, saying its not real because its a sticker is not what makes that something we would wear or not.
Unless they have changed this year....the only helmet in the NFL that is painted and does not use stickers for logos is the Cinn. Bengals helmet. The stripes of the Bengal Tiger are painted and not stickers.

Mark Ingram's 2 on one side was coming off I believe in the Championship game vs Texas. It was either that game or the SEC Champ vs Florida???? Think it was the Championship Game however. And his wasn't the only one coming off that day. Also, Upshaw was losing his 1 in a big game maybe one of the Championship Games.
Seems we have not only very very cleaned and redone helmets for those big games, maybe they at times have new ones. The game I'm saying it was as if they either cleaned them so well or used something that didn't allow the sticker numbers to stick well enough that hits wouldn't cause them to come off.
Here's the other...
