      Utes Equipment posted a preview video of the uniforms for this weekend. Black handcrafted helmets from the USC game, white jerseys, black pants and cleats.

      Let’s hope those black helmets have a special power for taking down teams from Southern California.

      GO UTES!

      I thought they offered those for sale? We don’t want them scratched.

        Did you pony up the $2,500 for one?

      My brother did. $1900 of that $2,500 is considered donation. He asked for Marcus William’s or Tyler Huntley’s. I just

      I’m content with my one Ute helmet, signed by the whole Sugar Bowl team. 🙂

        My daughter was 12 during the Sugar Bowl season and Robert Johnson had the team sign a jersey for her.

      Love the helmets but shouldn’t we be wearing white helmets on a day that is going to be 90 degrees in SoCal? I don’t know if it makes a difference or not but it’s was the first thing that popped into my head.

        It’s a dry heat.

        Seriously, this time of year the heat is due to Katabathic wind, or what we would call Santa Ana wind. Essentially, this is a drainage wind that carries high density air from a higher elevation down a slope under the force of gravity. In the descending process the air is compressed and heats up. Such winds are sometimes also called fall winds. So the heat is less due to direct sunlight and more do to the effect of Santa Ana winds. As a result, the black color of the helmets would have minimal impact on the heat felt by the players.
