Alabama Houndstooth

Houndstooth Alabama helmets wouldn’t look all that bad now, would they? I’m more of a traditionalist though, and I love the traditional Alabama football helmets.

Would you like this look if you’re a Roll Tide fan?

  • It’s kind of crappy to not link to the source.

  • Hey – Roll Tide! At first glance it’s cool, catchy, & different, but I’m too traditional & prefer the helmets we currently use. Hopefully we’ll never stoop low enough to promote “black outs’ & goofy uniforms like some folks. I just want to line up across from our opponent, play ball, & continue to win football games. That’s what would make Coach Bryant proud!

  • That is abhorrent! Alabama is about tradition. Tradition mandates crimson helmets with the player’s number on the side.

    We loves us some hounds tooth, but there is zero reason to put it on the helmets.

  • But, would the Bear like it?

  • Oh, & I also hope we never degrade low enough to waste toilet paper after each win…

  • Those helmets are bad-ass….nobody is saying they are gonna use them permanantly….maybe one game a year. If you don’t like them that’s ya’lls opinion—you’re entitled to it. And exactly which tradition “mandates” crimson helmets with numbers on the side?? The tradition is the National Championships, not the color of the helmets. I for one love these helmets. Do I wanna see them in the Iron Bowl, absolutely not, but against someone like FIU, Western Carolina, etc. Just for the record, I have been saying for a long time that I would also love to see white “away” helmets with crimson numbers (but that’s just my opinion)

    • The University of Alabama has in the past used white helmets instead of crimson. However, as a native Alabamian and life-long Bama fan I do prefer the Crimson shell with center white stripe and number on the side. The helmet in the picture makes for a neat picture but I hope that Bama is never moved to change their appearance as teams like Georgia, Oregon and Oklahoma State have been doing in recent years. Our uniforms are simple and classy. When you see them on the field, they are as unmistakable as a Coca Cola bottle and a bag of Lays potato chips. You know it’s Bama!!! Roll Tide!!!
