North Carolina white helmet confirmed
- Updated: August 2, 2012
Tar Heels make white helmet a reality
The North Carolina Tar Heels report to training camp tomorrow. Facing a season of NCAA sanctions prohibiting them from postseason play, Larry Fedora’s squad will still be out to play an up-tempo style, and they will look good doing it.
As rumored and reported back in February, and now confirmed, North Carolina will have a sleek looking white helmet with a Carolina blue logo, essentially a flip of their regular style helmet. You figure the special helmet will be used for a significant home game. With that idea in mind we will keep an eye on the October 6 home game against Virginia Tech as well as the October 27 home game against in-state rival North Carolina State. If they should happen to break out the white helmet on the road this year, consider the November 10 game at Georgia Tech your leading candidate.
As of now there is no confirmation which game (or games) will see the white helmet treatment, so I took a look at the UNC schedule to see which ones may be worthy.
Inside Carolina also took a look at the shoe sorting and distribution North Carolina’s equipment staff has to look forward to. The Tar Heels will wear seven different shoe combinations this fall. With 105 players reporting to camp tomorrow, that makes for a lot of Nike cleats to sort through and organize.
Thankfully, there has been no further comment on this gray helmet. Let’s hope it stays that way.
