THE COOLEST HELMETS IN NCAA DIVISION 2 COLLEGE FOOTBALL

On August 22nd the divisions of college football covered here at Balladeer’s Blog will kick off. To help all of us endure the time until the 2012 season starts I’ve been presenting looks at the coolest football helmets from each of the divisions covered here. Previously I’ve examined helmets from the NAIA, NCCAA, NJCAA, SCFA, NCFA and NCAA Division 3. Now it’s Division Two’s turn.

 20. SOUTHERN ARKANSAS UNIVERSITY MULERIDERS

Location: Magnolia, AR

Conference: Great American Conference

Comment: Coach Tommy Tuberville played his college ball for the Muleriders, a team with a catchy nickname, cool helmets and a quintissentially southern sounding home city.

 19. DELTA STATE STATESMEN

Location: Cleveland, MS

Conference: Gulf South Conference

Comment: Okay, so it’s just the Greek letter Delta and the word State. I still think it’s a clever and concise helmet logo that’s very eye-catching.

 18. NORTHWOOD UNIVERSITY TIMBERWOLVES

Location: Midland, MI

Conference: Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

Comment: Carolina-blue shells with a big, bold Timberwolf pawprint on the side. How can you not love great helmets like this.

 17. UNC-PEMBROKE BRAVES

Location: Pembroke, NC

Conference: Independent

Comment: The Braves are known for their gridiron toughness and they’re helping to keep independent play alive in this conference- crazed time period we live in.  

   16. UPPER IOWA PEACOCKS

Location: Fayette, IA

Conference: Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference

Comment: The conjoined “U” and “I” on this helmet look incredibly stylish and the name Peacocks is almost unique in the various divisions of college sports.

 15. CALIFORNIA (PA) VULCANS

Location: California, PA

Conference: Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference

Comment: Direct from the Keystone State, it’s the Vulcans! That’s the Roman fire and forge god Vulcan swinging his hammer in the helmet pic.

 14. HUMBOLDT STATE LUMBERJACKS

Location: Arcata, CA

Conference: Great Northwest Athletic Conference

Comment: The Humboldt State University Lumberjacks have completed the Balladeer’s Blog Hat Trick: they have a cool nickname, cool helmets AND they play in the infinitely cool stadium the Redwood Bowl.

 13. WEST LIBERTY HILLTOPPERS

Location: West Liberty, WV

Conference: West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

Comment: This team from West Liberty boasts the coolest helmets out of all the college teams that go by the name Hilltoppers.

 12. SAINT ANSELM HAWKS

Location: Manchester, NH

Conference: Northeast Ten Conference

Comment: Saint Anselm is famous not only for its impressive academic reputation but also for this avant garde football helmet design.

 11. ARKANSAS TECH WONDERBOYS

Location: Russellville, AR

Conference: Great American Conference

Comment: Wonderboys radio broadcasts are great to listen to via internet on Saturday nights in the fall for some real Old School southern football charm.
