Grading the Uniforms: Week 10 Vs. Iowa State

Written by Justin Southwell

Oklahoma State wore the Barbed Wire helmet for the second time this season (this time with the orange facemask). They are 4-1 in the Barbed Wire helmet after defeating Iowa State on Saturday.

Helmet: B


I still can’t decide if I like this helmet and it’s driving me crazy. I think I like it with the black facemask and don’t like it with the orange facemask. I thought it would have been interesting to see them take the gray facemask from the homecoming helmet this season to match it up with the gray pants, but I don’t know if it would make it any better.

Combo: B


This combo is similar to what we saw against Texas Tech. After six full years of never seeing Black – White – Gray, we’ve seen the Cowboys wear two versions of it this season. Against Tech, there seemed to be a lack of orange. The Barbed Wire helmet gave us a little more orange, but it seemed out of place.

Overall: B

    This helmet is far better than this site gives it credit. But I think the overall grade for this week is correct – B. This isn’t a bad grade – it just reflects the reality that some of our other combos are phenomenal and will take the A+/A grades.

    The orange facemasks always remind me of the Oregon Uniform where they tried to look like their duck mascot.

      LOL. Not even close to that bad! But I get what you’re saying.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again. This helmet would be good if they’d take the orange barbed wire stripe off (and use the black facemask).

    • David

      Agree. Well, it’d be better at least.

    I would like to see a little more orange. Through nine games we have worn orange jersey or pant 4 times. JMO

  • Pirate Pete

    Dump these helmets. NCAA sanctions should be levied against us for wearing these atrocities.

  • Mark

    I actually don’t mind the helmet paired with a black facemask. With the orange one it just doesn’t do things for me.

  • Matt Cox

    The helmets were okay, but not great. It’s all this grey nonsense that needs to go away!

  • OSUgary

    Have they worn orange pants this year….cuz I like ’em …. 🙂

  • Shanon Edwards

    This is the best helmet we have

    Helmets are so bad.

    Helmet: F lol

    F. Anything with gray immediately goes to the bottom of the list with an F. That color should go to the garbage dumpster. It should never be used for anything other than road baseball uniforms. Many of the combos are good however personally the brand on the helmet looks best imo

    I doubt we will debut a new helmet against KSU or KU, but I am still holding out hope for a new orange helmet for the Big XII Championship game. I really liked chrome orange “gigantor” Pete when it debuted, and it is still fine today. But I want a really good orange with a black/silver chrome brand with a black/silver chrome stripe down the middle. Not sure which color face mask… [Actually – the new helmet is optional – I just want the Big XII Championship game!]

    Orange face masks look bush league. Like some poorly thought out high school uniform.
