The coveted gloves that have been on the lips of many a Husker fan since they were introduced this past summer have arrived, but something else of note can be found in this picture:



...a black helmet?!

I could give a rip what the uniforms look like as long as the play solid 60 minutes of football.
Wearing all black (head to toe) against the Badgers would be cool tho.

The only trend we should follow is that of how to play championship caliber football

The helmet must go with the shoes and the purse. Otherwise, the uniform will be tacky looking. We mustn't look tacky. It's more important how we look than how we play. (tongue-in-cheek)

When it comes to Nebraska football, I am usually a traditionalist, but I gotta say- I'm lovin that black helmet! I hope they never change the big block N tho.

Wear em twice this season-once at home and once on the road. Wear all red with the black helmet at home and wear white jersey/red pants with the black helmet on the road. That would rock. Stop being lame.

Those helmets are sweet. Wear them at least once this season! C'mon don't be all conservative.....

What's inside the uniform-that's what counts. The coaches NEED to get these guys ready to play better each week-that's all I ask. The change up would be cool though.

Get over yourselves, folks! I don't care what they wear. I will be cheering them on. If they went on the field wearing pink with purple polka dots, they would still be the HUSKERS! It doesn't matter whether or not you like the uniform as long as you can tell the two teams apart.

Dr. Tom did make an announcement for all Nebraska fans to "Wear Black" to Madison when they meet the Badgers. Take it with a grain of salt but a national game with BCS implications and the fact that you cant tell a white helmet with a big N much apart from a white helmet with a big W on it.......

All you old farts who hate any changes get with the times. Not only is the new gear sweet as heck. It also. Is a great recruiting tool. You don't think Oregon uses it? I assume those who want tradition are the same people who get mad when its to loud in the stadium.

The uniforms are fine and stand for a great tradition just the way they are! Nebraska doesn't need to do the over-the-top cheap flashy uniforms. I thought the idea was to play good football and have people talking about some great plays and a win, not to come out looking like clowns and people talking about the uniforms instead of the ability of the players. If they are going to look gaudy, they might as well plaster advertising logos all over them and make some money for the athletic department that way.

If you look closely on the helmet you'll see some red tags. Those red tags on the helmets say Adidas and are only on the newer helmets they've been showing this year. They are helmets we will wear

I would LOVE this! I've mentioned how it would be sweet to wear a black jersey before to people, most of whom agreed. I love mixing it up, and this would be awesome!!!

I like it! But, I'd prefer they'd go back to red helmets like they had in the pre-Bobfather era. How about mixing in a little maize? We are, afterall, the CORNhuskers.

PULL-EEEEZE! Send those ugly hats to Oregon & Maryland & keep red on white. It'll breed continued success!

Of course, if NU loses the game, Husker Nation will blame the uniforms if they are different.

I wonder if NU is going to debut this helmet at the Wisconsin game? First B1G Ten game, and against Wisconsin who have almost identical uniforms to our traditional ones, and TO requested that the fans wear black. The black helmet could be all part of a "grand plan". GO BIG RED BLACKSHIRTS! I wonder if there might not be some other surprises in the works...? Maybe a black jersey with red pants for that game? Kinda makes you wonder...
