New Gopher Helmets Revealed

December 19, 2011

Minn Football, MN

After several days of teasing die-hard Gopher football fans (yes, all 17 of us) with piecemeal closeups, the program’s official Twitter account (@GoldenGopherFB) revealed the new look helmets in full. 

Truth is, I was a bit worried about these helmets going too far ‘a la Maryland’, but these pass all my requirements and then some. 

  • Retain classic ‘Block M’ – check.
  • Trendy matte finish – check.
  • Cool black face mask – check.
  • Add our classic fight slogan, “SKI-U-MAH” to back of helmet – double check (and my favorite new feature)

I’m pleased with the new look. And they certainly can’t hurt recruiting, as I hear tell the kids these days love the trendy duds. Full uniform to be released to the public sometime after Christmas.  

Here’s the new look:
