Photo: Illinois Unveils New Football Helmet


Illinois football has had a rough few years on the field. In fact, the Illini haven't had a winning record in the Big Ten since 2007. Clearly, changes need to be made. They're starting with their helmets.

The school, via CBS Sports, unveiled a new helmet this afternoon. The new block "I" look instead of the full "Illinois" definitely modernizes the program's style a bit, but it isn't the most innovative move we've seen.

Hopefully it can lead to bigger things on the field - the Illini didn't win a game in the B1G last season.
