In yet another uniform surprise, the new Goldy helmet had a decal with the outline of the states of Texas and Florida to remember the recent Hurricane disasters and honor the victims. This was a very classy move by our football program and equipment staff.
Wow! Just Wow! For uniform junkies such as myself, this is a HUGE deal. This Saturday vs MTSU the Gophers will play MTSU wearing for the first time EVER, a Goldy Gopher helmet. Yes, the uni Gods have finally answered my prayers! After these many long years, a Goldy helmet! Goldy will be prominently displayed on one side, a block M on the other, with Goldy Gopher's tail coming up the back. It's doesn't get any better than this folks!
Week 2 vs Oregon State brought another uniform surprise, the Stormtrooper design. A white out uni that featured a new shiny white helmet vs the flat white they wore in the Texas bowl. This one also had a block M on both sides vs an M on one side, and a # on the other. This helmet did have the same designed stripe as the maroon helmet in the week 1 game, but in maroon instead of gold. The white jersey is very close the white jersey worn last season, but gone are the bricks from the #s. Here's a link to the official video release. https://twitter.com/GopherFootball/status/906677177697017856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedailygopher.com%2F2017%2F9%2F9%2F16282000%2Fminnesota-all-white-uniforms-oregon-state-stormtrooper
