Ignore Ross. He doesn't like anyone eating but him.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
I talked to one of the players and they said that those will be the uniforms. Who knows maybe they will be in for a surprise when the get to AZ.
considering how the guy who leaked the chrome helmet prior to the michigan game lost his job...yeah, i think the program is on notice.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Nope! Black jerseys for the game, Orangebloods confirms!~ pic below

why do they always look so dark on TV/pics?
Looks like TCU may be wearing shiny helmets...

Arnett, but yeah you bring up a valid point.
Chrome vs Matte finish for them.
@ChrisVannini: The company that made MSU's chrome helmets says MSU could wear green, chrome or... white helmet(?) in the bowl. http://t.co/GGQIQKFe
Players names should be their BDubs order
From the article it's a safe bet that both teams will have a helmet made by Hydro Graphics. I didn't like the chrome with the white jerseys but I did like the helmet and think it would look better with the green we are wearing. I would like to see a white one too.
Was one in the minority who loved the Chrome helmet, and would love to see them use it again.
I also think it would look much better with the green uniform and under the lights during the night bowl game.
The helmet is great, it just didn't match the uniforms at all. Would like to see them with the green.
I wonder if there's really a white helmet.
I imagine the white helmet was produced for the team and would have been worn for a Rose Bowl or other big time game. (This might have been what TheSpartan was discussing when he said there was a Rose Bowl uniform in the works two seasons ago.) I do not think they will unveil any new uniform or helmet for the BWW Bowl.
Will most likely save it for next season or for a better bowl game in the future.
Original green helmets matching the green on jerseys=fail....Chrome green helmets matching the green on jerseys=bigger fail.
I like the concept but someone is colorblind. I think a matte green would work best. Like a darker forest green version of the Ohio or Baylor matte green helmets this year.

Minus well use the white helmets...it's a jinxed plagued color and we have nothing to lose. If we lose, well, we were supposed to lose...but if we win, it opens the door for all options being on the table for the next major uniform do up.
Did you read the link I posted? The company that manufactured the chrome has basically come out and said they will have a special helmet.
I liked it better when Nike would design a whole set for us, including the helmet, and then have HGI make the helmet. I don't like that MSU is approaching HGI on its own without the jerseys being touched at all.
I agree. All or nothing.
"Michigan State could bring their white, green, or Green HydroChrome helmet but so far nobody knows..."
The company that produces the chrome helmet says we either have our normal green or white (didn't bother checking to see that we don't have a white) or their chrome, but "nobody knows"
In other words, the company would love for us to wear the helmets, but we're not sold on it yet, and it doesn't even say that it's anything we are considering. Sounds more like a sales pitch than an announcement. Don't be surprised when we wear our normal green.
I think you're colorblind. Our green helmets match the jerseys perfectly in person, it's just the filters they use on the cameras for better color balance being outside in different lighting that makes them look different because they reflect light differently being a fabric and a paint. Just like how the Tigers unis always looked like shit in the Metrodome, bad lighting + camera filters to adjust for bad lighting.
I think they look better in person most definitely. I agree that the camera an lighting can have an effect but watching on tv during day games especially the helmets look a couple shades lighter and they are glossy by design. I think it would be really slick to have a matte green helmet to match the color of our jerseys more effectively. I realize that the cameras can have an effect but why are we one of the few teams that doesn't seem to match? And those chrome helmets weren't even close to the same dark color of our jerseys. It would have definitely helped to be under the lights, same thing with the pro combats. The color of our jerseys would pair well with a matte green helmet rather than a gloss or metallic finish. Just an idea. I'd like to see some photos of it if anyone is good at photoshop.
this happens to every team's uniforms...not just MSU's.
We will have a BW3 Bowl patch.
