THE THOROBREDS BATTLE THE GOLDEN RAMS IN THE CIRCLE CITY CLASSIC

 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. To enjoy it live on Saturday try clicking http://www.hsrn.com/  or    http://www.blacksportsonline.com/home/  .

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?
