Earlier this morning, we showed you the new gold chrome chin straps the Baylor Bears will be wearing to match their ridiculous gold chrome helmets. Now, we might have yet another chrome football helmet at a major college football program – Ole Miss.
Pictures of the Rebels’ potential new lid started circulating on Wednesday, and a freshman defensive tackle named Herbert Moore posted one to his Instagram account late last night. Though, he also admitted that he wasn’t sure if they’d be wearing them in games this season.
Here’s the earliest photo we could find.

Personally, I think they’re much more attractive than what Ole Miss usually dons. Perhaps this new helmet can be paired with one of the four new uniform combos the school unveiled earlier this year. Or maybe they’re going for a whole new look.
Or maybe this is just a concept helmet. Let’s hope not.
