Plethora of IU helmets really not necessary

Have you seen the six new helmets Indiana University’s football program plans to break out next season?

There is one in particular you might not need to drive to Bloomington to view. Simply go outside, aim your stare to the south and the glare takes care of the rest.

On a sunny day you might be able to see it from Topeka.

I had hoped this state’s Division I programs wouldn’t attempt to be the Oregon of the Midwest when it came to protective head wear. After all, taking the field and actually playing like the Ducks serves as a far better goal.
