LOOK: UAB has some new helmets

Helmets with comically large logos are all the rage these days. And by these days I mean the last 48 hours or so. First there were the orange Boise State helmets, then the new red Kansas helmets, and now UAB's new giant dragon helmet.

Now, it sort of looks like the dragon is vomiting all over the place, but I don't think that's necessarily a terrible thing. Sure, a fire-breathing dragon is far more dangerous, but I'm pretty sure that lighting your opponent on fire is against NCAA rules, and I don't remember seeing anything about vomiting on your opponent.

Would you want to tackle somebody that's throwing up all over you? I mean, beside your friend outside a campus bar at 3 a.m., but that's just because the cops are coming and you need to get them the hell out of there.
