Kent State wears crazy helmet in Hazell's finale

Sunday night’s GoDaddy.com Bowl marked new Purdue coach Darrell Hazell’s final day on the job at Kent State. Here’s to guessing college football fans won’t soon forget it. Interestingly, it had nothing to do with the close 17-13 decision. No, it had everything to do with Kent State’s head-turning helmets.

The Golden Flashes debuted a solid yellow lid, complete with a set of eagle eyes on the front, located just above the players’ eyes. The helmet also featured the school’s “K” prominently on the back. However, it was the eagle eyes that caught everyone’s, well, eye.

It was a creative look, especially in today’s game dominated by matte helmets (here & here). Still, let’s hope Hazell isn’t in his office decorating Purdue helmets any time soon.
