The College of Idaho restored its football team in 2014 after a 36-year absence; I would appreciate information about helmet designs used by the team in 1977 and earlier seasons.

In 2001 Montana Western used red helmets with a logo consisting of a white cartoon bulldog, which was very similar to the one used by Samford University at one time (the Samford helmet is shown on the Southern Conference page at this site). I would appreciate a CLEAR photograph of Montana-Western's 2001 helmet.

*2 Uniform numerals are present on the left side only of this design; a "bulldog head" logo is present on the right side (as shown below).
