White Helmet?
« on: November 10, 2012, 11:54:41 pm »
 Why in the world was #85 Tanner Nehls wearing a white helmet. I mean it's not bad enough that they got spanked but the cherry on top is one player  wearing a different color helmet. Maybe before they use that 5 million on the stadium they could buy some back up helmets. They sell those helmets in Modells. I have never seen that in any level of college ball. I know I'm not the only one that noticed it.

Nehls' helmet was because it was a special concussion helmet. Its delivery last week was delayed due to the hurricane, so he wore it unpainted for VMI. He played very well, so out of football "voodoo" it was left unpainted. It was a topic of conversation during the WUSB broadcast last week.

 Thanks for clearing that up Redwyn. I am all for safety and can see why he wore it like that last week, but you can't wear it like that  because you played well in it. This is not little league, and plus it was on TV. Not a huge deal but just looked bad, and the reason was worse.
