White Face Masks for VT Football Helmets this Season

I wonder what changes we'll see compared to last year.

None of this matters until they remove the strips from our jerseys. I'm starting the revolution right now. I want these jerseys back. Whit please.

I agree. They were great.

Either those or these would get my vote.

To be fair....X would make any of the units look awesome

Well, shucks.

X gon give it to ya

Change it to our new number font, add in the new tapered stripe helmet, and boom. Looks good.

Awesome. Maroon pants please

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

I thought maybe the double piping was too busy, not sure which one looks better.

Another idea: very rough concept of the maroon Hokie Stone design from the basketball court on the shoulders and sleeves of the jersey contained within the white piping.

I like it more without the orange piping.

Personally, I'd like to see a modernized version of the Mike Vick era uniforms. I like the solid jerseys like Alabama, Michigan State, Penn State, etc.

The one with no piping is better

Single orange sleeve. Do it.

If by tackiest you mean best, I agree.

The tackibest!

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.


I could be persuaded to the white pants if only we got the solid maroon tops back.

Getting rid of the shoulder stripes needs to be priority number 1

I agree. But I also believe that there is some underlying reason we haven't yet. I don't know what it might be but with how in touch Whit is with fan base I have a hard time believing that removing the shoulder stripes simply hasn't crossed his mind

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

I think it's because Beamer REALLY loved the stripes. Probably a big reason they stayed around so long. We couldn't just scrap the stripes right as he retires, so I think it was a good move to keep them for a couple years as we transition into the Fuente era. I fully expect revamped uniforms next year.

I know Nike would never betray Oregon like this but man, I want the stripes gone, solid maroon, and Oregon-style wings on the shoulders in orange. I also want the white unis to sport the seriously tight maroon hokie-stone on the shoulders. Really really feel that's the best two uni combination we could get.

No to the wings.

I feel we will see that look, most likely this year. If you look across the country uniforms are going to a classic, non striped look.

I love white face masks

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

I'm excited to see what helmet(s) they decide to put them on. Lots of potentially awesome combinations.

It's Time to go to Work

The helmet we wore for Beamer's last game vs. UVA and the bowl game against Tulsa is my favorite helmet.

Same here. Not even close.

2 colors, one to go? ??? Best for last??? I want to know now! !!!!

Title of this article might need editing, especially with regard to recent events. I like the discussion but the headline could be misinterpreted.

#Let's Go - Hokies

TBH, that was first thought too...

Didn't think about that for a football board, but made the change

For some reason this post reminds me of the following great song:

Not sure where everybody else stands on this, but I prefer the maroon face masks over the white. Are white face masks going to be standard? Or are we using them at least once this season?

I don't think they'll be the norm, but I do think there will be 1-2 "special" helmets this year. Especially when the tweet said "saving the best for last". You don't say that for maroon, black, or white.

#AllOrangeEverything CONFIRMED!

I think someone posted that rumor.

I hope it happens, if only because I know the handwringing that week will be glorious.

I'd be one of them. I don't want us to look like giant skittles.

I guess you hate ALLMAROONEVERYTHING as well

Nope. There are no maroon skittles.

HAHA. Nice. Close enough (I think they're purple) and valid point.

All Maroon is a classic look and there is a reason that we have not seen All Orange. I like orange as an accent color and not the primary.

If we did do orange, I'd rather see it with a maroon helmet and maroon pants. Kind of like the picture of AJ Bush on the home page.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Last year we struggled against teams in orange- UT, Syracuse, Clemson. Time to break the curse by putting on ourselves.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Echoing French: I love the white face masks
