New HELMETS from AP!

    AP has their 2011 edition of college helmets and logos on Exchange.

    This is, of course, a time of great jubilation and children dancing in the streets.

    Grab them before they're off the site!

    Only down side: They don't appear to have adjusted for some of the new helmets, most notably Boise, Georgia and Maryland.

    (You may fire when ready. ;D)

    How would we know which Maryland helmet to choose? There's two sides.

    Have they adjusted ANY of them? It just looks like what they moved last year, and the year before that, and the year before that ...

    They've improved them a little bit in some cases. Just a little better detail, richer colors.

    May of the helmets you saw, specifically the Maryland, Georgia and Boise State ones mentioned, were one-time use helmets.

    I don't doubt it with Maryland or Georgia, but I thought the Boise helmets were their new full-time helmets.

    I just finished breaking all the helmets and all the logos into separate JPEG files. We have them saved in our InDesign folder so we can easily import them into college preview capsules, Big Ten standings, etc.

    You know who pioneered the logo balls, right? Design guru Charles Apple. There's somebody I know out there who just bit through his coffee cup with that mention. ;)

    In fact, we purchased the set for one-time use 2-3 years ago for a bowl-schedule graphic.

    Yet another smart use of funds by our public universities. Geesh

    You really think the universities paid for those unis?

    Phil Knight laughs in your general direction.

    Just like the uniforms those teams wore, they were one-time only.

    And thank God for that in Georgia's case.

    Half of the Pac-12 pdf is filled with Oregon helmets, right?
