Whether you like FSU or not...  That's a great way to present those helmets...

Cool idea.  I'm digging their new helmet.  Love the matte finish.

Didn't Burt Reynolds have a lot to do with the integration of the alternate uniforms at FSU, which ended up being some of the first alternate unis anywhere.

Yeah, he used to contribute to new uni's and was very close with Bowden.  Below is a tidbit taken from an article I was reading.  Burt was also responsible for the White Pants uniform they wore and the ALL Garnet uniforms they wore.  My oldest bro went to FSU, so I have been to a number of games there.  Fantastic place to see a game.  So different from an Ohio State game, but fun as well. 

Bowden has mentioned that he and Reynolds designed the arrow helmet together.  Monk Bonasorte was an FSU safety and All-American who now directs the fabulously successful Varsity Club program.  “Back in 1979 when I played, our uniforms were actually in kind of poor condition.  They were patched up because uniforms were expensive and the school didn’t have a lot of money,” he says.  “Burt bought the first set of gold pants – they were actually called Notre Dame gold.  It was the first time we’d had new uniforms in awhile.”  Reynolds bought the first set of all-garnet uniforms too, and had some of his Hollywood pals tweak the design

The two helmets for this year are sharp

I asked Braxton how his knee was before halftime at Berkeley and he said, "What up, man."

Very cool. 

I've trained Canaries in the sport of falconry.

The alternate helmet is sweet.

Boy that '62 helmet seems a bit racist... maybe worse than the Indians mascot.
