Bring back white helmets? We never stray from tradition but, we would be returning to tradition right??

White helmets first became a part of our uniforms in 1949. This was not out of the ordinary for those of us "not including myself" who followed the crimson tide throughout the fifties. I only became aware of this while looking at a picture of The Bears last game, when he beat the Illini in the Liberty bowl. At first I thought it would be awesome if they brought the white helmets back until I fell back on the ways I was brought up (A traditionalist). But come to find out, that could be considered a tradition, so I became a little stoked about the idea! I found it interesting that we switched Bach to the Crimson helmets in the sixties, but used them for eligible receivers when we played night games, or if our opponent had the same, or a helmet resembling ours. I suppose that's in reference to the common practice of using numbers on helmets. I also found that the crimson helmets we use today were not recognized until we played Texas in 1960. Anyways, I thought it would be cool to bring them back. Technically, I could say the white helmets were a part of my generation, but I won't since I was only 4 in 1984. But it's not far off from our desire to stick with our tradition...... Is it?

It's a topic I have thought about, thanks to "therammerjammer" for posting this to answer some of my questions: http://ncaafootball.tumblr.com/post/4967644420/therammerjammer-a-break-from-tradition-the
