Ranking the helmets of the MWC
Ranking the helmets of the (current) Mountain West Conference.
#9 Colorado State
The helmets themselves are not horrible and they go well with the overall color scheme but they have not a drop of originality.
#8 New Mexico
Again the problem with the Lobo's helmets are that they look like a million other helmets around the country. There is nothing that makes them special or appealing.
#7 San Diego State
The colors just don't work. Aztecs in plain writing against the side of the helmet? Come on they can do better than that.
Plain script. Plain Helmet. Where is the creative thinking in the MWC?
#5 Air Force
The Air Force with all their history and respect can't do better than a lightning bolt?
Yes everyone knows that the colors brown and yellow look horrible on a college football uniform but the silhouette of the cowboy on the bronco is awesome. The helmets are not the problem, the uniforms are.
It's a good looking helmet but it comes off as a bit busy. And that is without mentioning that they seem to have a hundred stickers on the back.
Purple with the horned frog. Very original. Very clean. Very good.
Let me preface but saying that I am not a BYU fan in any way,shape or form.I just thought I would make that clear as it seem that too many articles on bleacher report are written by true homers.In fact as a Mormon who lives in Arizona I can say I truly hate almost everything about BYU...except their helmets (and J-dawgs...yes I have friends that go to BYU). They just work...a classic look. Way better than those abominations they had a few years back.
