USC Morning Buzz: Helmets Delayed


USC’s shiny new helmets might not make their debut until the fourth game of the season against Oregon State on Sept. 27. A representative of the helmet manufacturer said the helmets take longer to produce in part because of the special paint used to produce the glossy look. USC might not have all its required helmets until mid-to-late September, which would mean they are worn for the second home game.

      This is a real scoop.. I bet no other USC websites would have this information..
      Wolf got this from his inside source at the helmet manufacturer.

        Scottie must have bribed the forklift driver in Shanghai with a case of chicken feet……

    If Notre Dame needed them by the Season opener, why do I think the helmets would be ready? Sarkhissian does not seen to have the pull of a Kelly or a Saban. This sounds crazy.

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Not sure about that

      • Trogan Fan

        but Cow Poly could probably get ’em, right?

        • TrojanFan3.0

          Why would it matter to a hater?

          PS…..It’s “Cal” Poly, show a little respect

        What part? They can’t pay of couple of their Bruin employees overtime to mix the paint in time? This is for USC’s Season Opener. That means something. Showing up with the helmets against OR St.? It’s just dumb.

        • UCLA Bleauz

          Maybe they found out that the Chinese were using lead based paint?…….

          • FormerBand

            That’s ok, makes ’em heavier for bashing into Bruins….just don’t lick the helmets.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            Are you suggesting that the Bruins are helmet lickers? šŸ™‚

            Bucket loves licking helmets, along with his alter-ego Trogan

          • TrojanFan3.0

            Too funny!….nice crotch kick……oooops, you dented the helmet

  • TrojanFan3.0

    Bucket said, if it isn’t leather then why bother

  • Trogan Fan

    4 or 5 games in will be a perfect time to introduce these – after losing badly to Stanford, the fans will need a distraction. Well played, El Siete, well played.

    Be still my heart!

  • Helmetgate scott wolf style… Question, is Lee Harvey Oswald perched just behind the sundeck?

      And watch out for Sure hands, Sure Hands………

    It takes time to cultivate that wt look.

    I would just wait until Homecoming Oct 18 against Colorado or the Notre Dame game as the last game. Make it seem special.

  • FreeShabazz

    Probably not the right opponent to do the test run since Oregon st always seems to win that match up
