    The Florida Gators re-open their rivalry with the in-state Miami Hurricanes this weekend and there are some “BlackOut” helmets that have surfaced as a potential look for the team in Week 2. Florida has never been shy to tweak with their look and add some alternate Nike Pro Combat uniforms, so many believe that this could be the look the team rolls out when they face the Hurricanes for the first time in five years.

    Here is an image of the black helmet, which was leaked by @GatorNationU Wednesday night on Twitter:

    Also saw this on twitter, said a fan designed them as a black ops theme but it was just for fun it will not be worn.

    You know, we've seen quite a few teams with this black matte finish...

    What's the deal with that? Are teams trying to absorb radar?

    If I were to wear any special head gear for this game, go with a white helmet with chrome blue Gator script with silver chrome border. Along with all white uni. Beat the heat and kill their stupid white out with one simple change.

    Official Florida twitter account shot it down. It's just a guy that creates his own helmet designs.

    Rumor or not, that is one badass helmet. I wish we wore it in a game, just not against Miami this year. I don't want any of that black uniform or new helmet gimmick stuff going on. This ain't Georgia, we don't need fake juju.

    I wonder if other school's boards have as many 'helmet' and 'uni' threads as we do? I never visit other boards besides secrant at tiggerdroppings, but it may be interesting to see if other school fans are as obsessed with changing helmets and unis as much as some in here are.....lol.

    Can't imagine this is real, at least for this weekend. First of all, it would not seem wise to wear black at a noon kickoff in early September, plus, we should be wearing white jerseys as the visiting team.

    Second, the blue is not Gator blue, so I find that hard to believe that they would change the team colors for a novelty helmet. And third, this would completely go against the approved logo usage guidelines the school puts out. That would be a branding no-no.

    I agree, it looks pretty badass. I'm a fan of that color combo, it's similar to my shop car. 2010 GT500 that's black with grabber blue stripes.

    Except for the 06 Ala game it seems the uni change always backfires on us.

    Black is the wrong color for noon in Miami.
