PHOTOS: Western Michigan unveils new helmets

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

A few days ago Western Michigan unveiled its new helmets for the 2013 season, writing that they combined "new age swag with old school tradition."

But forgive us if we're wondering if that "tradition" didn't start quite recently with a certain other set of Broncos. The new WMU helmets, with photos from the Broncos athletic department:

And now, for no reason whatsoever, a photo of one of the Nike Pro Combat helmet designs worn by Boise State this season:

There's another recent iteration of the Boise helmet here. But any resemblance has to be perfectly coincidental, right? This isn't a case of Nike simply reusing the Pro Combat template, not when Western Michigan is MANFULLY outfitted by Adidas.

So we'll just chalk to up to great equine-uniform minds thinking alike -- and be about our business.
