It was believed the Arizona Wildcats would be unveiling a new red helmet after running back KaDeem Carey posted a picture of one on Facebook, but they are just a conceptual design according to athletic director Greg Byrne. Here is the latest from Byrne's Twitter account:
RED HELMETS - That was a mock-up that we had in the equipment room. At this point, they are not on the radar screen. #AZisWildcatCountry— Greg Byrne (@Greg_Byrne) June 4, 2012
There is always a chance that this is just a smokescreen from the athletic department and the UA will indeed be wearing these in 2012, but it doesn't seem likely. Kind of a bummer for those who liked the look, but I really wasn't too much of a fan.
Hopefully the Wildcats work up a deal to get completely new uniforms in the near future. I think that's something everyone can agree on.
