Maryland, Tulsa Rock Insanely Ugly Helmets (Pictures)

If Maryland and Tulsa are any indication, Saturday must have been a day to break out the ugly swag in college football.  Nothing the Terps do with their uniforms this year should surprise us after the roller derby outfits they rocked at the beginning of the season, but their helmets on Saturday were almost as bad.  Tulsa’s were even worse.  Check it out:

In hindsight, the Maryland ones are nothing compared to the Tulsa ones.  That could be the ugliest helmet design college football has ever seen.  If they were intended to distract opponents, they may have done their job as Tulsa beat Rice 38-20. If I saw someone running at me wearing that on their head, I’d be distracted too.

Thanks to Twitter user @cjzero for the pictures.

    I half agree with you.  I concur that both are hideous, but I think Maryland’s is worse.  At least you can read “Tulsa” and “4” on their helmets.  I still haven’t figured out what Maryland’s is about.

    I think the Maryland helmets are supposed to resemble turtle shells because they’re the terps.

    Thanks.  Makes sense.  They still suck.

    I always said football is for lame ignorami. Now I have proof.
