Default Small stickers decals on helmets.

While watching college football this season i've noticed more college football teams with small stickers decals on the back of their helmets.

When did NCAA change the rule and allow stickers back, on the back helmets? Didn't the NCAA banned them about 10 years ago? If not, then why did we do away with the Spur?

Default Re: Small stickers decals on helmets.

florida state and ohio state have had those helmet stickers for as long as I can remember, in fact it looks very odd to me to see one of their helmets without them all over.

a lot of schools have tried them out over the years but a lot of them look like garbage (I wasn't a fan of the spurs)

I don't ever remember a ban on stickers. I think you may have misheard someone talking about it.

They are accomplishment stickers. I wouldn't call them pride stickers. it's not the players that decide to put them on

UGA has them

Never really liked the idea. Too much like giving out gold stars to grade school kids.

Default Re: Small stickers decals on helmets.

I've always been a fan of the pride stickers. Its kinda like the old Plains Indian tradition of counting coup. I like being able to turn on a game with some random teams I never follow and immediately being able to identify playmakers. It gives me a good idea of who to watch, making the game more entertaining.

i have always like them. UGA does white bones for athletics and black bones for academics. fsu has tomahawks also has tomahawks that say academics. byu has has blue paws as well as gold paws. vanderbilt has them on their gold helmets but not their black or white helmets. I believe there are more more teams doing it then used. IIRC around 2000 there was only 10 teams and now it is 25-30

Default Re: Small stickers decals on helmets.

In high school we were given these for meeting goals on offense (rushing over 100 yards, scoring 21, etc) or defense, special teams. As a player I loved getting my stickers! I don't mind them at the college level but most coaches don't feel the need to use them. At one time I think only 8 FBS teams used them though more are doing it now.

We used skull and crossbones for defense and tridents for offense (LE Demons).

I wouldn't mind seeing the spurs on there. It could help motivate a bit possibly.
