2012 CSU Rams Helmet Concept Re-Design by Peter Brown!  


Two concepts:
1. Helmet for most games

2. Helmet for Ag Day or Special Games
On December 16, 2011, a post on the internet by CSU fan and designer Peter
Brown went viral when he unveiled his concepts for new helmet designs for
the CSU Rams in the Bold New Era.

From December 17 to December 24, CSU fans voted on Colorado
Aggies.com for their favorite concept design. The choice is clear for a special
Ag Day white helmet with green bone-style horns. Fans also are interested in
a change for the everyday helmet, however, the traditional fan did weigh-in on
their vote.

Perhaps Coach Mac will take note of how the fans want Bold New Helmets in
2012 and make some changes to go with the Bold New Era.

This is a fan vote and is not represented by the CSU Athletic Department.
Concept 1:
Green Helmet with Gold Horns-Update of current style

This helmet is an updated version of the style of helmet the Rams have worn since
Sonny Lubick took over as head coach in 1993. Although there are a few subtle
changes, this is likely what could be described as the traditional Rams helmet.

Since football returned to the campus in 1945 following WWII 67, CSU has worn a
base color of green for 45 seasons. (1945-1949, 1951 to 1961, 1982 to present.)








Final Votes
1. Everyday Games = 32
2. Ag Day Special = 2
Concept 2:
Gold Helmet with Green Horns - Update of 1970s

This helmet is an updated version of the style of helmet the Rams wore during the
Sark Arslanian coaching years only with the more true gold rather than the yellow
found in the 1970s. Since WWII, CSU has had yellow as a base color for their
helmets in 1950 and 1962-1981.










Final Votes
1. Everyday Games = 4
2. Ag Day Special = 3
Concept 3:
Green Helmet with Green Bone-Style Horns

This helmet is an updated version of the style of helmet the Rams wore between
1951 and 1956 with the gold horns rather than the white horns. Note how the 2012
concept horns have a solid horn on the inside and the fan-favorite bone-style on the
outside. This is the personal favorite of Colorado Aggies.com.










Final Votes
1. Everyday Games = 66
2. Ag Day Special = 12
Concept 4:
Gold Helmet with Green Bone-Style Horns

This helmet is a combination of of the 1950s style with the 1970s style of helmet
adding the 1990s and current gold. If anything this helmet can be described as a
360 of CSU football helmets over the past 60 years.










Final Votes
1. Everyday Games = 4
2. Ag Day Special = 3
Concept 5:
White Helmet with Green Bone-Style Horns

WOW! That is all we can say about this stunning helmet that is a reversal in color
from the 1950s original bone-style helmets. Complete with a tribute to #88 Keli
McGregor, this helmet is highly versatile and stands out.

The last time CSU had white helmets were the leather variety from 1940 to 1942
