They look sick IMHO.
Hilarious. Real funny ha ha ha. Would be cool if it were only true.
Wrong colors, but I'd take it.
Hail to Pitt.
Here's the thing... That, theorhetically, wouldn't exist unless this was a legit rumor or McKillop had a custom helmet made to troll us.
It's a revolution helmet, which didn't exist when pitt wore a similar helmet. Also, the 80's neon helmets had a helmet stripe. And it's not one of the ones from the YSU throwback game, because those were more of the "correct" mustard gold.
So, this helmet exists, somewhere, for some reason. There's gotta be SOMETHING to it. No way McKillop would make a custom helmet just to troll Pitt fans.
Here's what they wore in the YSU game:
Here's what Scott posted on Twitter:

I will take it. Wonder if they'll put piping / something down the middle.
This is exactly what I went looking for. I went to see if it was the same helmet as from YSU a few years back or from Palko at the Senior Bowl. Nope.
I don't believe it for a moment. Then again is smiley cookie monster scrambling for his job? I hope his face breaks.
Those are absolutely the right colors.

It's neon yellow, Ghost.
I thought you liked old gold and/or mustard?
Edit: Unless I'm just seeing it wrong?

That is Old Gold to my eyes.
Everyone I showed it to said it matched the Pitt Script Logo twitter guy's mockups.
Either way, we can agree that that helmet has no reason to exist, correct? Nothing like it has ever been worn by Pitt.
That was my thought before you posted that. Unless someone had a set of helmet stickers from the YSU game and bought spray paint to create that, it has no other reason to exist except if this thing has legs.
I LOVE IT!!!!
It's time for some new Pitt gear for me, and I'd spend way too much if they made that change - BUT I DON"T CARE - cause I LOVE IT!!!
Yeah, the blue definitely matches. I can't imagine why McKillop would screw with people like that, though.
What I find odd is why would he have a helmet with no facemask.
I can't imagine McKillop would hose over Pitt fans like this.
That's how the helmets come when you order them, and the equip. staff attaches the facemask. Ever see Rudy?
That's what I mean though. Like, if he bought it on his own or something, you'd think the facemask would be attached.
Yeah. I get ya now.
This would NOT be a smart move by McKillop if he's just messing with us.
It doesnt seem to have the stripes down the middle. Even IF...a big IF...Stevie P caved and brought back the helmets for 1 game - i can bet he will still $crew it up. The guy's a complete dolt.
Obviously, this is a different take on it, not a replica.
I once bought a sheet of script helmet stickers on ebay. Anybody can slap one on a helmet.
I can't imagine that Smilin Steve would EVER let this happen on his watch. You'd be more likely - seriously - to see a Dinocat throwback, since he is the only person on Earth (aside from my 3 -year old son) who likes that logo.
Agreed, RJA, but do you really think McKillop would do that? People will kill him.
The Nix bros.?
I don't believe Pitt is allowed to just throw a new uni out there for a bowl game.
I think this is just a gag or wishful thinking.
Let's see..... former players, current player, potential future players all like script. Most fans prefer script.
Marketing genius at Pitt.... nope, can't have it.
