The college football offseason is as uneventful as any sport’s offseason, meaning that this is a big deal when we get to cover the release of a new jersey of helmet for a certain team. The Miami Hurricanes have a pretty slick sense of style when it comes to uniforms, and that’s why this is exciting to many people to find out that they are releasing some new looks.
It looks like Miami’s cool look is going to get even slicker in the upcoming years as the team has decided to create a green helmet prototype that will be used in the future — not in 2014.

While having three different helmets seems like a waste of time and money and could lead to some confusion, just ask the Oregon Ducks how it’s working out for them. Miami needed some type of change in the program since the one main change that it needed didn’t happen this offseason — I’m looking at you, Al Golden.
Miami will always be a scary team to up against because it is a blue-collar program built on a winning attitude, but recently the Hurricanes haven’t been as intimidating as they once were in the 90s and early 2000s.
A cool green helmet won’t help them win more games, but it definitely puts them on my list of best looks in college football.
Hey, at least that’s one step in the right direction.
