Clothes Call: Purdue's new black alternate helmet

Purdue is going with a Black Out for today’s game vs. No. 4 Ohio State on BTN/BTN2Go. And, yes, that includes a new black matte alternate helmet. The Boilermakers went with a slow reveal of the helmet, decorated with train tracks down the middle, and didn’t debut it until they came out of the tunnel before kickoff. They warmed up in their primary lid.

Here is Danny Etling warming up before the game:

Been waiting for this since they switched to gold in the 90’s.

You can put a new coat of paint on a turd, but it’s still a turd!! Great Buckeye romp in West “LAUGHayette” at the ‘Lemon-ade’ stand!!! If it wasn’t for OSU fans that dump would have been less than half full! GO BUCKS!!!! 21-0 under the Urban Legend!
