After a lackluster season, the Bearcats are looking to establish themselves once again, this time without Brian Kelly. Although headwear won’t impact how they fair in 2011 whatsoever [OR WILL IT?] Cincinnati appears to be testing out some all-black helmets that will likely generate a good amount of positive and negative buzz.
It’s counterproductive, it’s somewhat odd and it’s likely going to irritate most classic uniform enthusiast, yet somehow I’m really diggin’ them without seeing the entire ensemble.
Can’t you just envision Zach Collaros alluding an early tackler and scrambling for a 1st down on 3rd and 7 in this bad boy? No? Well in any event, kudos to Cincinnati for trying something different.
