I say a plain blue and/or white helmet with small (Buckeye like/sized) current Husky logos for game wins only. Not touchdowns, just a logo for a win. Talk about motivation to play to the end and ensure a win, team comradery and all that. You win and everyone on the team gets rewarded instantly. Of course the negative nancy's will laugh it off as these guys walking around with blank helmets but that's the point. Win and you won't have a blank helmet. And imagine the pride upper classmen will have once this ship gets turned around and they can add 10 plus logos to their helmet in a season. Possibly have fresman and sophomore wins on one side of the helmet, junior and senior wins on the other.
The 1970s was not the early days of UConn football... The team was formed in 1896. So when he said the block C disappeared for 70 years that means that it would have last been used in the 1930s. Or 40+ years before the start of your helmet graphic. But interesting note about 1976, it was the first year that 4 point chin straps were required in college football.
