2007 -

*1 During Millsaps' first five games in 2014 the team used a helmet design whose left and right hemispheres were completely different. The left side was purple with white uniform numerals, while the right side was white with the team's primary "M"/sword logo; a wide gray stripe seperated the two sides. The team switched back to the "normal" white helmet beginning with game #6 (October 25 vs Sewanee) and used that design for the remainder of the season.

Some earlier Rhodes helmets have been described as follows: 1992: red helmets with white facemasks and a black "paw print" logo outlined in white; 1993 - 1995: red helmets with white facemasks, one white stripe, and a white "paw print" logo. I would appreciate photographs of any of these.
