Comments

Saint Norbert is a new member of this conference in 2020.

Concordia University Chicago and Aurora used new helmet designs in 2019 (shown above).


Historical Helmets

AURORA

? - 2000? 2001? - 2004 2005 - 2010
2011 - 2012 2013 2014
2015 - 2018 2015 -
*see note 1 below

*1 In 2015 the large "AU" logo was worn on the left side only of each helmet; the right side was "blank". The logo was apparently worn on both sides from 2016 through 2018.


BENEDICTINE

? - 2003 2004 2005 - 2009
2010 - 2011 2014 - 2015 2016 - 2017
2018 2012 - 2013; 2019 -
*see note 1 below

*1 The "eagle head" logo is worn on the left side only of this design. At least three different logos were worn on the right side of this design in 2018: during at least the team's first two games a cartoon "eagle"; during at least two mid-season games (October 6 at Rockford and October 20 at Eureka) the letters "SPC" (possibly standing for "St. Procopius College", the name of the school prior to 1971); and during at least the November 3 game (at Aurora) the letters "BU" with an "eagle head". Below are representations of these right-side designs.


CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY CHICAGO

? - 2005 2006 - 2017 2018 -

2019 -

*1 This design has the large 'cougar head' logo on its left side only; on the right side are uniform numerals (as represented below).


CONCORDIA WISCONSIN

? - 2008 2009 - 2010 2011 - 2015

2016 -

*1 On both of these helmets (and apparently on other designs used by CUW in earlier years) the logo or numerals are worn on the right sides of the helmets only, with the left sides "blank". I have depicted the logos on the left sides here so as to not have a "blank" helmet image for CUW.


EUREKA

ROCKFORD

2000 only? 2001 - ? ? - 2003

I believe that the "R" decals on the first two helmets shown above may have been worn on the right sides only of the helmets, with the left sides left "blank". 2000 was the first year for Rockford's football program.

By at least the 2003 game against Minnesota-Morris, the team had switched to plain purple helmets. I believe that it is possible that another design or two may have been used also in 2003. A preseason photograph of the team showed a purple helmet with the school name in white letters on the sides, but I do not know if this logo was ever in use during an actual game. Additional information would be appreciated. I suspect that the team made several mid-season changes during its early history.


ST. NORBERT

? - 1999 2000 - 2005 September 1, 2012
*see note 1 below
2006 - 2013? 2014? 2015 -

*1 During St. Norbert's 2012 game against John Carroll, played in Dublin, Ireland, the team wore a version of their helmet logo altered to incorporate the colors of the Irish national flag.


WISCONSIN LUTHERAN
