Ohio States black helmet.

Tuesday night, Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith set the blogosphere on fire after he dropped an Instagram photo of what appears to be a black Buckeyes helmet. Sadly, it turns out that Smith wasn't actually hinting that Ohio State will be wearing any such lid this fall. Smith took to Twitter late last night to refute reports that he'd leaked a new helmet.

He instead implied that he is simply creating a custom helmet for his players.
