Its been done a lot @ Carolina. Stars during the Carlen years. JoMo helmets had lil' black block C stickers. Sparky & Fat Bradstard both gave spurs. Holtz gave claw & spurs. Spurrier's the only one not to use reward helmet stickers.

Actually, I saw a little tidbit on ESPN about this. I cannot remember which school started this but it caught on like wild fire in the 70's and 80's. It has fallen off recently and I believe only seven FBS schools still use helmet stickers. Kinda weird seeing two of them playing last night.

I like UGA's the best. They are real small and do not take over a helmet. Also, white bones are for athletic accomplishments and black bones are for academics. I really like that.

Holtz also did the state with the Palmetto Tree and Crescent moon on the white helmets before. It can be done and look really good too

I'm betting very few black bones are given out!

He's got a good reason. I was just wondering because I honestly don't remember ever seeing them, even though I was at Carolina during the Holtz era.

P.S. If this is in the wrong forum, please move.
Coach Carlen had big garnet and black stars, and you earned points toward them. You didn't get one for a win, or a recovered fumble, or whatever. It was like a merit/demerit system, and once you earned a certain number of points you got a star. If you see a picture of George from later in the year he has 3 big ones up by his face mask. I thought they looked awesome, but a starry-eyed kid finds no fault in his heroes, right?

Over doing it is a good thing in this case as all the emblems have meaning behind them. Obviously you can point each one out like a military badge but they get them for on and off the field accomplishments. The reason we don't have them is because our helmet would be way to cluttered. 3 stripes and a big logo on each side. End up looking like Stanfords and as a previous poster said they are ugly.

Like how Ohio St doesn't give them out if they don't win the game. Doesn't matter if you should have gotten 15 in one game if you didn't win you don't get any. Also like how UGA and FSU have athletic and academic stickers. FSU has academics written on the tomahawks. On a side note since it is the offseason is it safe to comment on uniforms??? I would love to see us wear just a black helmet no logo or anything at some point. Either shiny and metallic or a flat black. Flat black would be bada$$ with wounded warriors uniforms

What about the 1980 George Rogers Helmet?

What were the STARS awarded for, and were there other awards on the back of the Helmet?
