Photo: Minnesota has revealed a new alternate helmet


I remember seeing those old glittery Minnesota helmets just a few years ago, as the matte helmet craze started to hit, and thinking to myself "Man, this program could really use some new lids."

A few seasons later they've added the matte maroon look, as well as a nice clean white alernate. Over the weekend they added this gold (or yellow) look with "SKI-U-MAH" down the stripe in the middle.

Traditionalists likely won't be a fan of the addition, but I'm really digging them, and I know recruits will like the variety available on game day as well. They've certainly come a long way from the glitter look.
