Helmet Carnage After National Championship Game

lsu helmets.jpg

This photo was sent my way the other day by reader Ryan Perkins. I was going to run it in the Ticker but decided it deserved a better showcase than that. “My sister-in-law took it at the end of the BCS game and I thought it was cool,” says Ryan. Bit of an understatement, no? — Paul

    Does anyone know about the material “tactel?” I’ve seen Nike hats for college teams listed as being made from this material, and I’m unfamiliar with it. Does anyone know it’s like? Is it better than wool or some of the other materials?

    Thanks.

    I caught a few minutes of the Stetson v. Florida Gulf Coast Univ. hoops matchup last night (you can throw out the records when those teams meet) and noticed that the Stetson unis featured contrasting name plates. I found this grainy photo from their game against Georgetown. I can’t really decide whether I like the look or not.

    Do all NASCAR drivers get their sunglasses at the same store? Almost like they’re part of the uniform.

    Actually, if you want a showcase of sunglasses, some crazy and some not, check out the Indy Racing League. I guess, owing to the more international flavor of the IRL, they can sometimes get a little more “stylish” with their outdoor eyewear.

    Dan Wheldon

    Danica Patrick

    Dario Franchitti (now in NASCAR)

    That’s a pretty nice sampling for now. Mill around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during May, and you’ll see some great shades.

    Since Florida Gulf Coast is in its first year of Division I sports, there aren’t many records to throw out. In fact, this was the first Atlantic Sun game for FGCU.

    As fir Stetson’s nameplates, it kinda reminds me of the Chicago State uniforms from a couple years ago, where ChiState had constrasting nameplates on the lower back of their unis, as well as the 1973-74 Philadelphia Flyers jerseys for NBC telecasts.

    with all the SHIT that has been going on (at least in the US of A, but also the world) involving cheaters and performance-enhanced ‘athletes,’ what better human interest story that to allow someone with no freakin legs to race in the olympics? aside from the obvious ratings (ka-ching) boost, who wouldn’t be totally rooting for him? (aside from the two-legged humans he might beat)

    comparing wins in auto racing (when you are competing against 40+ others at 1 time) to wins in tennis (when you only have 1 opponent at a time) is a complete disservice to the auto racer.

    view these career results…

    i think she might be a product of being an athlete. if shes in the public eye, she adds hotness. if she was Danica the waitress at Friday’s would she still be that hot? I can’t answer that.

  • Saru | January 12, 2008 at 12:18 pm |

    But Danica competes against a much smaller set of competitors than did Anna. To be ranked 100–or even much higher–in the world in tennis is much more of a challenge than top 10 in Indy racing.

    richrod wore the jersey at the hockey game. he dropped the ceremonial first puck and played score-o at first intermission. score-o is trying to shoot a puck into the net through a little hole from the blue line. he missed badly but seemed generally angry.

  • kevodrums | January 12, 2008 at 2:27 pm |

    A quick question:

    Do receivers or defensive backs wear any pads on their legs anymore? Thigh, hip, knee, anywhere??? I realize it allows them to move more freely and run faster, but are they more likely to get injured wearing these bike shorts? I never noticed this until I started seeing pictures of players on this site, especially Al Harris and Charles Woodson with their socks and spats. GO PACK!

    I was a drug testing crew chief for the USOC from ’92 – ’96. First of all, people would be amazed at the number of substances and the different variety that are banned, i.e caffiene in certain quantities. Secondly, the system we used which I imagine has changed quite bit but not enough was easy to beat. World class athletes know how to train to peak and taper down to competition levels.

    Most substances that are banned are performance enhancers which may slow down or speed up the heart rate, increase oxygen in the blood, etc.,depending on the demands of the sport. It is very advantageous for a competitive pistol shooter to slow down his/her breathing and heart rate. As crazy as it sounds, they try to shoot between beats.

    The problem with steroids is that they are basically training enhancers, not needed the day of competition. Also, they are mostly detectable due to increased levels of testoterone, which is obviously not a banned substance itself.

    So.. You increase your testosterone, train like crazy, taper down to the correct level just prior to the event, test your blood, and if you didn’t taper enough, announce a strained hamstring or shoulder and pull out of the event. Very simplistic, but you get the picture.

    What I find funny is when a sample is positive and they go to sample B. The system we used utilized a glass bottle sealed with VOID tape inside a plastic bottle lock sealed and VOID taped. The only person who touches the sample prior to the sealing of the glass bottle is the athlete and they and a representative sign that they witnessed the process. The two sets (A & B) of bottles are selected by the athlete from a box of many that are individually sealed in plastic.

    As for sample B. It is urine from the exact same sample as A. Half goes in A and half goes in B. Instead of being tested, it is refrigerated. So if A is dirty, you know B will be dirty too. They call in the ahtlete, test B and surprise, surprise. Positive.

    he wouldn’t be up against just able bodied athletes if accepted – I’m pretty sure that in that case a lot of athletes would be looking to see what they’d possibly be able to get away with. After all, we’re talking about equipment specifically designed to help someone run really fast, so I’d imagine that able bodied runners would be looking at what sort of things they’d be able to get away with too.

    Such is the world of competitive sport.

    Here’s what they wrote:

    #23 is for Tyson Gentry parylzyed in the spring game a either this past spring or 2 springs ago
    #24 is for Ron Springs(Shawn Springs Father)
    #99 is for Bill Wills I belive the first Black player at OSU they retired his jersey on Nov 3rd and he later died on Nov 27th He is in the College and Pro Hall of Fame

    Assuming the patches are still there at all next year, I imagine those gold stars in particular will be gone. They look silly.

    In the BCS title game, the Ohio State helmet featured several numbers on the rear back in addition to the BCS decal, American flag and a Big Ten pennant. Left to right, it looks like a 24 (white on scarlett circle left of stripe), 99 (white on black circle over the scarlett stripe), maybe a 25 or 29 (w on s circle to right of stripe) and two other numbers – one of which might be the player’s numeral (plain scarlett numeral on helmet right of stripe). With the award decals the numbers are tough to see. Anyone know anything about these?[/quote]

    24 – Tyson Gentry, player paralyzed in camp in 2005
    23 – Ron Springs, former player who died in 2007
    99 – Bill Willis, former player (and first African-American starter in the NFL) whose # was retired this season … a few weeks later he passed on.

    Someone has replied a bunch of times (on 1/7 and 1/8) about the 3 numbers on the left side of the helmet, but I keep replying to that post and asking what the one on the right side of the helmet was (not including the player’s number)

    Here’s what they wrote:

    #23 is for Tyson Gentry parylzyed in the spring game a either this past spring or 2 springs ago
    #24 is for Ron Springs(Shawn Springs Father)
    #99 is for Bill Wills I belive the first Black player at OSU they retired his jersey on Nov 3rd and he later died on Nov 27th He is in the College and Pro Hall of Fame

    I still want to know what the other number on the right side is for….(there’s 2 numbers near the warning sticker on the right)

    http://us.i1.yimg.co...

    I just saw your post after posting my response. A quick peek at the OSU roster shows #15 is punter A.J. Trapasso. THere’s no #83 on the roster, so that sticker is obviously for something else. Haven’t figured out what exactly yet, but I will do some more digging.

    Danica Patrick is overrated, it is not hard to get a top ten in indy, because the only race with more then 18 cars is the indy 500. Most drivers racing for the teams she has with her numbers would be fired and no one would care about her if she was not a hot girl. The same with anna kornikova.

    I think it is unfair to say that she sucks compared to most professionals. But….

    The year she was up to #8 in the rankings (2000) she finished the year at #9. She is the only player in the year end top 20 without a career singles title. Only 5, including herself, had less than 10.

    I think the measure of a player is to win under pressure (in a final maybe). So as a top 20 player, she sucked.

    So, I feel like a completely worthless uni fan. I just noticed the Packers wearing C patches in the 2nd quarter. I came in here to see if I was the first to notice it, and of course I was late by nearly an hour.

    I sure hope we can find out why the patches are on for the playoffs. I think they look silly on such a classic uniform. (Same goes for teams like the Cowboys, Bears, Raiders, etc.)

    sorry mike…i forgot stuby’s [sarcasm][/sarcasm] tags…i posted that because oscar pistorius finds out monday whether he can compete against teh able-bodied in beijing this summer

    with all the SHIT that has been going on (at least in the US of A, but also the world) involving cheaters and performance-enhanced ‘athletes,’ what better human interest story that to allow someone with no freakin legs to race in the olympics? aside from the obvious ratings (ka-ching) boost, who wouldn’t be totally rooting for him? (aside from the two-legged humans he might beat)

    im usually totally anti-pc, but this seems to me to be a win-win for everyone

    but hey, WTF do i know?[/quote]

    he wouldn’t be up against just able bodied athletes if accepted – I’m pretty sure that in that case a lot of athletes would be looking to see what they’d possibly be able to get away with. After all, we’re talking about equipment specifically designed to help someone run really fast, so I’d imagine that able bodied runners would be looking at what sort of things they’d be able to get away with too.

    Such is the world of competitive sport.[/quote]

    There was a similar case in the United States at the University of Miami(FL) with an Amputee Runner that actually ran on the UM track team. As recently as 2000 the world men’s amputee record for the 100 meter dash was less than one second off the Able Body 100 meter dash record.

    Another thing please dont think that cheating isnt prevelant in the disabled sports world. In the 2000 paralympics in Sydney the Spain Intellectual Basketball team was found to have to high of an IQ this lead to the removal of Intellectual Disablity sports from the paralympic games. Also in the 1992 Barcelona Paralympics the USA Men’s Wheelchair basketball team was stripped of the Gold medal do to a player taking a drug for spasms that was on the banned list. The top American Amputee sprinter was banned from the 2004 paralympic games for a positive steriod test. By the way his training partner….Marion Jones.

    One last thing think about this I play wheelchair basketball. The ammount of work that my upper body does in a game compare to the Able Body player is 3-4 times more as I have to propel my body and chair plus do all the basketball skills with my upper body.

    As a disabled athlete I commend Pistorus for his effort is this pursuit. The one thing it will help is get more recognition for those of us that toil in the disabled sports. In foreign countries their disabled athletes are celebrties. Here? Unless you are in the community you dont know them.

    I am sitting here watching football and drinking beer and loving it.

    Packers in the snow at home? Seahawks shouldn’t have bothered getting off the bus. Of course it wasn’t snowing that much when they did.

    Speaking of buses, I remember seeing during the pre-game for the Rose Bowl that as USC showed up to the stadium in the bus (actually several buses), the players inside were jumping from side to side so much that the buses were really rocking–the tops of the buses were moving back and forth with an amplitude of five or six feet. I thought that was pretty cool.

    The best uni-aspect of this game, or any Packers game, is Favre’s classic chinstrap.

    Of course, NFC = Not Football Champs. Green Bay and Dallas will battle next week for the right to lose to my Patriots.

  • Greg | January 12, 2008 at 7:14 pm |

    In response to the questions about the Packers wearing the captains patches:

    During the regular season the Packers nominate captains for each game, therefore no one on the team wears a “C” patch because the captains change.

    The Packers nominated captains for the entire playoffs so 2 offensive players (Favre and Driver), 2 Defensive players (Aaron Kampman and Nick Barnett), and 2 special teams players are wearing the patches

    I disagree . . . I think the leather jacket looks bad-ass. It fits with JDR’s personality and looks “linebacker-ish” (if I may coin a phrase).

    As opposed to looking “derelict-ish”

    I happen to have a black leather jacket, it is very comfortable and fashionable. But I do wish the NFL would let JDR wear the suit for the Playoffs.

    I once saw Jack Del Rio play in a HS basketball game. As I recall, he didn’t exactly have a finesse game.

    I got really bored and was looking at the custom jerseys on NFL Shop. Aside from some differences in the supposedly “authentic” and the real jerseys, they are mostly accurate.
    I began to consider which team this year’s Heisman winner, Tim Tebow, would draft him in the 2010 NFL Draft. More importantly (unless its the BEARS), which team’s jersey would look the best as a TEBOW 15 jersey. This is a set of pics with one of each teams’ current jersey customized to say TEBOW 15.

    I don’t know if any one looks “good,” but the Packers one is entirely inaccurate. Tebow will never wear #15 for Green Bay. (Bart Starr, natch.)

    #15 is retired by the Eagles for Steve Van Buren. Pretty sure the Packers have retired #15 for Bart Starr. Am I missing any?

    Jack Del Rio looked like Fonzie.

    Not that that’s a bad thing.

  • Smail | January 12, 2008 at 11:53 pm |

    Didn’t see this posted after the Pens/Sabres outdoor game, but Danny Sabourin’s jersey numbers were much lower than the other Penguins. His encroached on the horizontal white band, something that not even other thirty-something numbered players had to worry about.

    Maybe something about the way goalie-cut jerseys are made?

    I spotted one of the Packs ST patches on Rob Davis, the Long Snapper and the only Packer other than Brett still with the team who played at superbowl XXXII. He’s actually the oldest guy on the rosterand has been appointed as a Playoff captain several times before.

    BTW I mentioned the stupid Ref pants in the Patriots game to a teammate of mine who’s not watched a lot of NFL football and he though they look like “Cheap Track-Pants”, you wil be happy to hear the the British American Football Referees Association only recognise the traditional white pants as correct uniform, regardless of the weather.

  • Spencer | January 13, 2008 at 12:19 am |

    I would like to see the Jaguars have turquoise numbers on their road uniforms. The black becomes a bit overwhelming (especially with the black socks), and the home turquoise over white is an under-the-radar classy uniform.

  • docious | January 13, 2008 at 12:20 am |

    Here are Gary Sheffield’s Game Used Cleats.

    Nike put his number, “Sheff” on em, and a Chef’s hat for a logo.

    The uni-related item on these cleats is the velcro to hold down those gawd-awful pajama pants.

    It looks like his jersey is cut shorter than the others. Look how much farther the other players’ jerseys come down on their pants.

    I say forget 2010. Tebow comes out after the 2008 season, and hence the correction.
