PHOTO: Is USC getting a new helmet?

Quite a few changes have taken place with USC football over the last year. The biggest one could be on the sideline as last season Lane Kiffen gave way to Ed Orgeron, and Orgeron then gave way to Steve Sarkisian.

But there may be a change on the field as well.

Paul Lukas tweeted a photo on Thursday morning of what could possibly be a new USC helmet.

So shiny!

I don't know, I don't hate the helmet or anything, but I always get somewhat annoyed when the traditional power programs start going with the helmet gimmicks. If you're a school like USC, Alabama, Texas, Ohio State or Notre Dame, you shouldn't really need to make these kind of changes to get the attention of recruits.

But, then again, the kids like what the kids like, and without them, well, it'd be hard to play the sport, wouldn't it?
