And the helmets were so cute with metallic gold paint, and so like Lady Gaga and Madonna. Maybe a green bow on the helmet top would set off the whole ensemble. Those old navy blue jerseys and gold pants and helmet were so traditional — and who needs tradition in college football? It's like joining the student body after the game and singing the Alma Mater.
