College bowl games pretty much always bring out the best in a team, especially when it comes to uniforms.  For this year’s Russell Athletic Bowl, Virginia Tech rocked some pretty impressive new “Gobblers” lids that featured a matte maroon helmet with big Gobbler decals.  In addition to drooling over the helmets, they had me thinking a bit about what we may see this year on the lacrosse field.  Two years ago big decals were in.  Last year matte helmets were in.  This year I’m guessing we’ll see a shift in the helmet world to combining the two like the Hokies did for the Russell Athletic Bowl.  We’ve seen this idea twice now, with Navy sporting a similar, matte/big decal look for their bowl game.

Which lacrosse team will be the first to sport something like the Gobbler helmet this season?
