NC State unleashed more alternative uniforms this year than we’ve ever seen. The combination of red helmets with a white block S in tandem with black jerseys for an October home game vs Central Michigan came off surprisingly well.
Then the Wolfpack surprised everyone by pairing the same red helmet with all red uniforms for two huge wins in the final two home games of the season vs Clemson and Maryland. Also if you remember, then we wore all red jerseys and red pants for much of last season as well on our way to a 9-4 season.
The red helmets were very well received by NC State fans and garnered more positive reviews than negative. I’ve personally been wondering what more permanent changes may exist in the future of NC State’s uniform combinations? So, you can imagine why my radar caught a blip when I saw the ‘official’ poster (pictured below) in the lobby of the Wolfpack’s bowl hotel headquarters in Charlotte.
Note the use of the red helmet for the GoPack Store poster. It appears that the appreciation and acceptance of the red helmet is proliferating.
