We shared it on Twitter, too, and at least a half dozen players on the team either retweeted it or said they liked the idea.
"I like the helmet a lot. A black alternative helmet would be nice." -- Rob HenryRegardless, it's pretty unanimous in the small sampling of responses we got that the idea of an all-black -- truly all-black -- alternate look would be great on a very limited basis. My philosophy on this is that it should be something that Purdue does once per year, for a night game at home. And if there are no home night games, either pick a big time road game to wear them, or just wear them for the Bucket game.
"Those are sick. I'll be fighting to get us in those this season!! How about the hammers in gold?" -- Tommie Thomas (this is significant, as Tommie led the charge for the Neil Armstrong tribute stickers)
Our suggestion for this -- as mentioned, I think, on previous Handsome Hours -- would be the matte black helmet with a gloss black P on it. Imagine that look.
Speaking of that, if you're a talented (or semi-talented) designer or photo-tweaker, feel free to send us additional nifty alternate uni concept for the Boilermakers.
