Update: …here it is. We figured the block “S” would be added to the version we saw yesterday. It makes it much stronger. Nice work, Cuse.

Earlier: Syracuse claims that blue is an “unofficial accent color” to its main shade – orange. The helmets below, which are rumored to be what the Orange will be wearing tomorrow against Tulane, seem to go against that theory.
Sean Keeley of nunesmagician.com tipped us all off last night with a cryptic tweet, implying that the Orange might be getting a color-fade helmet similar to what the Jacksonville Jaguars don.
If you had this helmet (http://t.co/NMYTH78s52) but with blue fading into orange, how would you feel about such a thing?

Today, Phil Hecken of Uni Watch tweeted out a photo of the rumored lid – though it has no decal, yet.

Yep – that’s a lot of blue. If the giant orange “S” logo is added, will it be enough to stave off traditional SU fans? I guess we’ll find out.
