Why we think the chrome #Clemson helmet won't happen.
« on: April 29, 2015, 08:29:11 PM »
Earlier today, Coach Barry tweeted out a photo of an all chrome Clemson helmet. It does have its luster, but we do not think they intend on making this helmet a reality on the field.


Clemson is set on tradition, and they have not had a massive helmet change since 1970 when the paw was introduced, minus the centennial helmet in 95-96. Now we have seen this helmet before floating around twitter, and we think this is just a custom helmet made for display, unfortunately. The concept is cool, but think it might be just a tad too much chrome, as the helmet, stripes, paw, facemask, and even facemask clips are chromed out.

As you can see the clips are chrome, the bumper is not the traditional "ACC", but yet a green recycle symbol which is used by Green Gridiron. They even posted this helmet and apparently they made one for charity.

You never know, maybe one day we might see a chrome version of our beloved paw helmet.

It is a nice looking helmet. I do not think it would look good with out uni's though. Def would have to wear them at night.
