Southern Football Report Helmet Countdown: #5 Purdue

Purdue LogoI know this one it a little out of left field but I am a huge fan of the black and gold color combination & most of the time the Purdue Boilermakers use them to perfection. The traditional Purdue helmet is number 5 on our Top 5 countdown because of the combination of it’s simplicity and use of colors. The non-shimmering gold base color behind a black facemask give it the perfect working man look. Toss a single black stripe down the middle with a big black ‘P’ on the side and you have, in my opinion, one of the great helmets in college football.

That’s not to say that Purdue hasn’t had their fair share of train wrecks (ah, thank you) because last year they had two hideous renditions. One had lime green & the other had railroad tracks running down the middle. Ew. Just stick to the tried and true black and gold and everything will be okay, Purdue.
