New Indiana football helmet

This recent tweet by Land-Grant Holy Land purports to show a new IU football helmet. Could this be real? If so, wow.

As helmets go, those are outrageous. As candycanes go, those look delicious.

 

 
EDIT: These are, in fact, real and there are others shown here

Feel free to call me crazy ... but I kinda like them and am interested in seeing what they will look like on the entire team at game day.  Sometimes helmets and jerseys look a bit different close up than they do when viewing the whole team.

And speaking on IU football ... again call me crazy ... but I could see them taking a bit step forward this year.  One of the best offensive minds in the country is on the sideline for the third year and has ran off the troublemakers and lazy members of the team while bringing in better talent.  Not that they're going to be a Big 10 contender or anything but I could see them having a solid season.

I don't understand this trend.  Alternate uniforms can mean more jersey sales, but what is an alternate helmet going to do?  You can't go to Dick's Sporting Goods and buy the IU football helmet.
