Last week the Purdue Boilermakers went with a special back matte helmet, which was a surprise to many as it was kept under wraps. They even practiced pre-game in their gold helmets so rumors of a black helmet were dismissed until they came out of the tunnel wearing black. It didn't do much good as they were throttled by Ohio State. This coming Saturday, Purdue will follow the Gophers example and wear a USA flag decal on their helmets. Northwestern will also honor the military this coming weekend by wearing essentially turning a flag into their unis, head to toe. I'm not a big fan of the Gophers or Purdue's uni decal, but I kind of like Northwestern's helmets. We'll see if we're shocked by any other secret US flag regalia this Sat. vs Penn State...
