The History of the White Baylor Helmet June 30, 2015 21:41
Everyone has their own favorite Baylor uniform. Given Baylor's recent success, the 2015 football team has the option to wear 6 different helmets, 4 different jerseys, and 5 different pants. The Baylor Bears could wear a different uniform combination in every game for the next 10 years! Since we are not yet in the shirt or pants game, Bailes Brothers has decided to pay homage to these Baylor helmets by creating 5 hats designed to emulate the style of these awesome helmets (not sure where to find a Poly-chromatic Gold hat).
The helmets worn by the Baylor Bears have changed quite a bit over the years. In this post I will analyze how the white Baylor helmet has transformed.
The white Baylor helmet was first introduced in 1969 during the not so great reign of head coach Bill Beall. This helmet featured forest green, yellow gold & forest green stripes running down the middle and solid forest green interlocking BUs on the sides. This helmet was the first helmet to display the now well known interlocking BU. The Baylor Bears stopped using this helmet after the 1971 football season and the firing of Bill Beall with his 3-28 record.
The next version of the white Baylor helmet was reintroduced in 2009 during the second year of Art Briles' tenure. This helmet featured dark green, white, & dark green stripes running down the middle and solid dark green interlocking BUs on the sides. The Baylor Bears stopped using this helmet after the 2012 football season.
On September 11, 2010, the Baylor Bears wore a special white helmet featuring digital camouflage to memorialize the date. This helmet featured dark green, digital camouflage, & dark green stripes running down the middle and digital camouflage interlocking BUs outlined in dark green on the sides. Baylor won the game against Buffalo handily with a 34-6 victory.
In 2013, the Baylor Bears introduced the most recent rendition of the white Baylor helmet. This helmet featured a dark green interlocking BU outlined in gold without stripes running down the middle.
In honor of Baylor's white helmets, Bailes Brothers has introduced a hat resembling the most recent white BU helmet worn by the Baylor Bears since 2013. Check it out by clicking the link provided below. Check out the entire Helmet Collection by clicking this link --> The Baylor Helmet Collection.
