Thread: Question and your opinion on your helmets?

  1. #1

    Default Question and your opinion on your helmets?

    Not trying to stir trouble just curious what SDSU fans opinion on your helmets and which do you like better? I have always wondered what the idea was behind whoever designed your current helmet logo. Note the red arrow in the pic I attached (if it worked right not familiar with your boards steps to attach or embed a picture). I'm curious what is the thing on the helmet in the rabbit design supposed to be? I inserted a red arrow pointing to it. Just my opinion but I thought your previous helmets design looked better. Having the number on one side of the helmet and then the wrap around logo on the other just seems odd to me.

    Do you guys like your new design better or the old one?

    I think it's the rabbit's shoulder or something. I'm a huge fan of the rabbit helmets. The SD was fine, but from a distance, it just looks like a yellow blob. They did improve it a few years ago, taking the white lines out, so the letters are better defined. Still, the rabbit helmets, in my opinion are very cool.
    Holy nutmeg!

    I love the rabbit helmets. Can't decide if I like them with a white or yellow rabbit better.

    It is based on the head logo. Jimmy Jackís profile photo.

    The only thing I wonder about the rabbit head design is whether the logo seems oversized. I've wondered if they would ever consider combining the two logos, perhaps using a transparent backing logo (e.g. "watermark-style) with the other logo in foreground (e.g., having the rabbit head outline "faded" with a stretch SD overlaid)

    I think the SD logo was great for a regional marketing standpoint because most people knew what it was when they saw it, but I think now when we're getting more national marketing intention, the rabbit is more distinctive and the audience knows who it is immediately. I'm no marketing expert but that is my take on it. The jackrabbit is a pretty distinct logo unlike any other in the country.

    Totally agree. With help of exposure of MBB & people like Scott Van Pelt & Andy Katz on TV many more people are going to recognize the Jackrabbit helmet logo as SDSU if they see it than the SD logo. (CBS's pre-game or halftime show even mentioned the Nevada game coming up last night.) Being the only Jackrabbits in the country it is the way to go.

    I was always a fan of your interlocking SD logo.

    However with your helmet this way and your whites you get the best of both worlds.

    I'm a fan of traditional uniform styles but I really like the rabbit head and numbers. Finally begging white pants also 2 thumbs up.
