Remember the Oregon Ducks Rose Bowl helmet, the superlatively reflective lid created by Newberg, Oregon-based Hydro Graphics, Inc? Well it would appear that they’re pretty in demand now among college football programs looking to create a special edition chrome dome. Here, check out what, according to the company’s Facebook page, is the new ‘HydroChrome’ Syracuse helmet which features an all-orange build with that über-reflective finish. (No school logos added yet, though that would surely happen later.) I’ll label this as rumor at the moment, but I don’t see any reason to think it’s less than genuine. Stay tuned for updates regarding college football uniforms overall, as well as Syracuse specifically.
Update: I meant to mention, and it’s since been all-but-confirmed, that these are expected to be part of a special one-off uniform for the Cuse/USC game.
