Yes, go back to the shiny helmets.  The matte finish helmets look horrible.

The matte helmets are good for a change every once in a while, but I like the helmet in the OP. I think they look better.

I find myself watching SCw, Bama, penn st, etc and wishing we would stick with one uni. A special one here and there is fine but stop changing the base uni every few years

Perspnally, I love the matte red helmets.  However, I'm all for going back to the traditional helmet, with the matte ones coming out on occasion.

Should have a standard uniform and IF you get a bowl game then you have earned the right to wear something different for the bowl game.

Get rid of the big gnarly helmet stickers while we're making changes. It's like putting tats all over Cindy Crawford. It takes away from the beauty of the of what's already there.

I would be happy with the throwback uniforms we wore when playing Bama in 2014 or was it 2015?  Anyway the one point loss game. I believe those were the 1964 uniforms. The simpler the better. Absolutely no helmet stickers.

Oh mercy and goodness sakes yes, yes, yes.   Maybe add a little bouquet of flowers right on top of the helmet.  You could add a tiny plastic flask of flower fragrance inside the liner of the helmet operated by a watch battery and releasing those wonderful smells from time to time throughout the game.  My goodness, so many things you could do with those protectors of our warriors of the gridiron.  Why its so erotic.

Penn State just looks sharp to me. Same uniform and helmets since I was a kid. And Iím 32.

Texas, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, USC, Bama, Auburn, UGA. All of them keep it simple.

I prefer the original gloss, not because they're glossy, but because the red is richer. Baseball teams have started doing the matte thing too. I'd be okay with it if they could get it right, but it looks like cheap foam rubber. It has no punch.

You will catch grief from the traditionalists, but I do find it interesting that almost every recruit raves about these while on their visits. I donít mind them once or twice a year.   As to the original post, I prefer the classic cardinal helmet without the matte finish.  I also donít like helmet stickers and wish that Petrino hadnít brought them back with the ridiculous sledgehammers.

As long as they are winning on and off the field, I could care less about the helmets.
But I don't want to see a winning team on the field that had the lack of discipline issues off the field that Petrino's teams had.
And, vice versa, the team needs to win on the field as well, unlike BB's teams.
The helmets stickers are interesting.
The flat color is interesting.
Winning - on and off the field - is more interesting.

Going to offer my opinion on the Uniform Debate.

Do you people seriously think they care what "we" the fans think? It's what the 17, 18, 19 year olds want. As stupid as it may sound, a black uniform here, or a special uniform design there could make a difference in what a recruit thinks about our program.

Everyone got mad at Ohio State for the Black ensemble they wore against Michigan. Guess what the "team" voted on the black design as the one they would wear the special Nike black ensemble for the Michigan game.

You old farts need to get with the program and understand, we aren't going to be Alabama, Penn State, USC, (some of the classic uniform teams). It's just not going to happen. So you need an edge elsewhere and potential special uniform combos, matte helmets, shiny helmets, different designs are the edge we have.

Personally I hate our current design. I don't want the D-Mac era uniforms either (OU ripoffs) --- what is the proper answer then? Don't know. However, does it give two craps what they were if they bring 8,9 or 10 wins next season?

No it doesn't.

Very unlikely to happen because those were Adidas uniforms and Arkansas currently has a contract with NIKE. If NIKE created a uniform like that, Adidas would file a lawsuit against them.

I actually prefer the Uniforms they wore this season against A&M but with a red hog on the helmets rather than a Silver one.

This Ďold fartí has been with the program since the late Ď60ís, so anything you have to offer, Iíve probably heard before. Believe it or not we donít have to be PSU or Bama or anyone else! We are Arkansas and we have a hog on our helmet, the only hog. We donít need to become the SECís answer to the UO Ducks! We have a brand unique in itself, donít need a Ďunií of the week, already have one that no one else has. Sure, if you want to throw aíspecialí uni in once a year, fine. I understand the kids like em. Those teams like UO and even Arkansas State to a certain degree, feel as tho they have to change every week for attention because they donít have a ďbrand.Ē Btw....Neither UO or ASU have or will win a NC anytime soon with the revolving fashions.
We got a brand......a Hog on the helmet.
Btw......for you Ďyoung punksí out there, my new book is about to hit the shelves, itís title? Ramblings From an Old Fart!

We got a brand......a Hog on the helmet.
Btw......for you Ďyoung punksí out there, my new book is about to hit the shelves, itís title? Ramblings From an Old Fart!
Huh! Get with the program my ass!

Ok old man whatever you wanna believe. You being a fan from the 60's gives your opinion no more credence than anyone else. As a matter of fact it probably shows how out of touch you are. The "young punks" are what will make our program relevant, not some Old Timers stuck in nostalgia. Btw I'm referring to the recruits as the "young punks" not young fans. No one cares about some forgotten about ravelry with Texas, No one cares about the South West Conference, and no one cares about "back in nineteen and sixty whatever NC". Check the calendar Lou Holtz and Frank Broyles have been gone for a long time...btw recruits don't even know who they are/were.

I always thought the 06' away jerseys looked sharp too.
