The Western Michigan Broncos athletic department released a statement on Friday and unveiled their new-look helmets for the 2013 college football season. Per the release:
Western Michigan football unveiled a new helmet logo for 2013 combining new age swag with old school tradition.
WMU is adopting a new look for the upcoming fall with an all brown Bronco logo that wraps around the traditional gold helmet with the logo starting above the all brown facemask on the right side (when looking at the helmet head on), wrapping back to the center bottom of the helmet.
On the left side will be the player’s number, which will stand alone. This helmet will be the primary helmet for the Broncos moving forward and will be worn with almost all uniform combinations.
Row the Boat.
The design is not terrible innovative, but it is a fresh look for the Broncos football program. Boise State had a similar design on their Nike Pro Combat helmets just a season ago.
Some schools are going overboard with their new uniform and helmet designs, but Western Michigan was able to keep it nice and simple. I like the overall design even with the school’s refusal to admit they were inspired by the Boise State helmet.
