As part of Kliff Kingsbury’s new contract to be the head coach at his alma mater, he has creative oversight of Texas Tech’s uniforms.
Well it looks like Kingsbury has already gotten a little carried away, as pictures have surfaced on the internet of what appears to be eight helmets the Red Raiders will have at their disposal this fall. Just weeks ago, TTU showed off a slightly modified black helmet and white lid for the upcoming season.
Now a picture has surfaced of what appears to be six more options, including:
• A black helmet and red stripe with the masked rider on it (awesome)
• A red helmet with the masked rider and a horse with a giant neck (awful)
• A black helmet with a gray masked rider
• A gray helmet and red stripe with the masked rider
• A white helmet and red stripe with the masked rider
• A white helmet and red stripe with each player’s number on one side (the masked rider or traditional “TT” logo is presumably on the other)
While some of these helmets are pretty snazzy, we recommend Kingsbury slows down with the new helmet. At this pace, Texas Tech is going to have 1,000 options by September.
