The debate between black and white chinstraps...on black helmets. Click after the jump to read more.
In about a week we begin our 2011 season at home against Kansas. It's weird to think we haven't even started yet considering other RMLC teams like BYU are already 5-0. We can't tell if other teams are starting early or if we're starting late, either way, it's good to have the extra time on the field. Off the field, gear talk is still raging. The question at hand today deals with our trusty black helmets. Do we go with white chinstraps on a black helmet? Duke did it last season and it does kind of go with our whole retro look going on.
