I prefer the old helmets. Now our gold is just like every other gold helmet. As in way too yellow. Not enough character.
Edit, post-USC game: I LOVE THEM. THEY LOOK GREAT ON TV.
- We have created a new “Gold Standard” for football helmets with the Notre Dame reflective gold particle helmet - This new shade of gold makes these helmets closer in color to the Golden Dome than any helmets we have worn at Notre Dame - Tradition of having 23.9 karat gold flake in the paint on the helmet continues - Gives us a more consistent look from helmet to helmet and week to week - After exhausting many options we ultimately were forced to decide between continuing the tradition of managers painting helmets and have a subpar helmet or alter the painting process and get a superior helmet. We felt it was more important to get the color right. - The new paint process is not in the skill set/capabilities of student managers.
