*1 In 2014 uniform numerals were worn on the left side of each helmet only; the right side featured the same "E" logo which was used on both sides in 2013.


COLLEGE OF IDAHO

2014 - 2015 2016 - 2017 2018 -

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.


MONTANA STATE-NORTHERN

1999 - 2000? 2001? - 2003 2004 - 2012
2013 - 2014 2015 -

The MSU-Northern football team played its first season in 1999. The school had a football team during a previous era ending in 1971; at this time the school's name was Northern Montana College.

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.

*1 The large "W" is present on the left side only of this design; gray uniform numerals adorn the right side (as shown below).

*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).


ROCKY MOUNTAIN COLLEGE

c.1970s c.1990 1995 - 1998

'A' 'B'
2010 - 2011 2012 - 2017 -

In 2017 RMC used two of the above helmet designs in the following sequence: A-B-B; B-A-B; A-B-A; A-A. On both 'A' and 'B' in 2017 the 'RMC' logo was worn on the left side only, with the right side left "blank".

Another historical helmet design for Rocky Mountain featured a "bear head" decal, apparently similar to the one serving as the "O" in "ROCKY" on the "c.1990" helmet shown above, but larger; the decal was supposedly gold or yellow in color, and was worn on dark green or black helmet shells. This design was reportedly used during the late 1980s or early 1990s; I would appreciate any photographs of this design, or of other historical designs used by the team.
