Gamecock Equipment: No Chrome Helmet


By Sports Department

COLUMBIA (WOLO) -- The University of South Carolina Gamecock Equipment Staff tweeted out a photo of a chrome Gamecock football helmet Thursday.

The tweet made some fans believe the Gamecocks were following in the footsteps of other schools, like Oregon, who wear the shiny helmets.

However, it doesn't appear the Gamecocks will wear the chrome helmet anytime soon.

After posting the picture of the chrome helmet, the equipment department cleared any confusion by tweeting out another photo of the team's traditional white helmet.

"FYI we will be wearing our traditional white helmet this year! If it ain't broke don't fix it," said the tweet.
