At The Scoop, we're well aware of how uniform changes can unite and excite a team and their fan base.
A couple programs from around the country have sent us some notable changes to their helmets for 2012 that are hoping to have that effect.
Of the helmet changes that we've seen so far, the theme of the year seems to be the switch to the "matte" style. The first few are new, and we wrap it up with a handful that were worth revisiting.
Manchester University (D-III - IN)
Tusculum College (D-II - TN)
Missouri Southern (D-II)
Southwest Baptist (D-II)
Azusa Pacific (NAIA - CA)
And don't forget about Arizona's addition of copper helmets
Vanderbilt's white helmets
Missouri added two new helmets to help bring a fresh look with them to the SEC.
Toledo also got a helmet makeover.
Virginia Tech added this helmet to wear with their Wounded Warrior Project uniform.
