Photo: Western Kentucky's new helmets might be chrome

Is that chrome? (Twitter)

Western Kentucky has a new coach this season in Bobby Petrino, and it appears they've not got some new helmets, too. That's a photo of a helmet that Petrino himself tweeted out on Thursday morning asking everybody what they thought.

Well, I don't quite know what to think, Bobby. Initially I like the helmet because it doesn't seem to have any gimmicks. It's just a solid, colored helmet with a logo -- something I can appreciate these days.

What I'm not sure of is whether the helmet is just silver or chrome. It looks like chrome, but I cannot say that without a reasonable doubt based on the photo. Maybe next time you can tweet more than one picture, or maybe use a different backdrop -- a backdrop that either will or will not be reflected in the chrome of the helmet.

That or you can just ask "what do you think about our new chrome helmets" rather than just "what do you think."

Be more considerate, Bobby.
