Florida Atlantic previews new red helmets (pic)

By the looks of the photo posted on Twitter today, the Florida Atlantic Owls will be rocking some sweet new helmets next season.

Check ‘em out (and look closely for the blue version in the background):

While the chrome-helmet obsession that’s taken over college football may prove to be nothing more than a silly fad, it’s a silly fad I can support. I’m like a crow; I like shiny things. While not every school should attempt to replicate what the Oregon Ducks do — heck, the Oregon Ducks shouldn’t even try replicating what the Oregon Ducks do, because some of those uniforms are obnoxious — it’s hard to find fault in programs wanting to spice things up sartorially.

However, FAU and others be warned: You all have a long way to go before you reach this level of helmet awesomeness.
