I’m in the mood to showcase these retro helmets of the Kentucky State Thorobreds, who are celebrating their 125th year this season. The Thorobreds are 3-1 so far and hoping to keep their momentum going this weekend at the 28th Annual Circle City Classic. The Classic is played at a neutral site, Lucas Oil Stadium, in Indianapolis, and pits Kentucky State against their SIAC rivals the Albany (GA) State Golden Rams. The Fleeces, as I call them for short, bring an identical 3-1 record plus their Dirty Blue Defense and Gold Rush O-Line to the game. Both teams are ranked in the Heritage Sports Radio Network Poll, the Thorobreds at number 6 and the Golden Rams in the 2 spot. The Fleeces are the reigning champions in the HSRN standings from 2010, and this much-anticipated gridiron clash is the HSRN Game of the Week.

Balladeer’s Blog wishes good luck to both teams! And I know KSU is wearing 125th anniversary helmets this year, but how about a return to those horsehead helmets for the 2012 season?
