USA Flag on UNC’s New Football Helmet
North Carolina’s home game with Idaho on Saturday will be a patriotic affair. Starting with the helmets the Tar Heels will be sporting.
The lids will include the traditional UNC logo on the side but filled in with the American flag’s Stars and Stripes design.
“We’re excited about doing that and hopefully we’ll be able to honor [U.S. servicemen and women] with the way we play the game,” head coach Larry Fedora told Inside Carolina.
The “Military Appreciation Day” game also features $20, discount tickets for active military personnel.
Considering how used we are to the Tar Heels’ traditional white and Carolina blue color scheme, we applaud the athletic department for changing it up. And for a good purpose, too. Grade: B+
