Black helmet stripes

3:30am, bored at work, and started thinking...the saying is you have to "earn your stripes". So when the players have their black helmet stripes removed, they aren't earning it, they are having it taken away. They should start with a plain white helmet and when they earn their stripe, they should get an orange checkerboard stripe put on. That makes more sense...dang, I need sleep. Anyway, GBO!!!

They're earning their orange stripe. You've got to keep up.

Wait until the media gets a hold of this. They'll rip Butch for not knowing how the old saying goes.

I did watch Hard Knocks last night and saw Mike Bajakian telling Winston to "snap and clear"

Funny how that's a poisoned term in knoxville but good enough for the league

It's not what's said it's who's saying it and people are starting to see through CBJs BS.

I would have thought presenting a player with his game helmet would have worked just as well. And you would have to earn that helmet before you dress for a game.

Your idea isn't bad. However, neither of us have been hired to coach the Vols. If that changes, we got something figured out.

Your hate is such a valuable commodity, are you sure you want to waste so much of it on our own team's head coach?

Maybe save it for North Korea or the guy who keeps parking in your space instead.

the black strip is for wind resistance when its removed the coaches know exactly how fast a player is.
