Well, it’s not a new idea and this is only a concept and there are no plans to ever use this helmet in an actual real life football game, but this picture of an LSU-themed Eye of the Tiger concept helmet popped up in my timeline on Twitter after it was retweeted by Will Weathers from TigerBait.

Alternate uniforms and concept helmets seem to be the new trend in college football with a number of schools following the lead set by the Oregon Ducks with their countless uniform combinations and a new helmet for what seems like every fame.
I’m more of a traditional uniform and helmet guy, so I’d personally not want to see this anywhere but inside the football offices for display purposes, much like the Duck Dynasty concept helmet. I actually prefer that one to this concept, and I also understand how the alternate uniforms and concept helmets are a big hit with recruits, but would you want LSU to use this concept helmet in a game?
