Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or so they say. If hat is to be the case, then someone at Western Michigan is a big fan of Boise State. At least, somebody is a fan of their helmets. Western Michigan shared some images of their new football helmets for the 2013 season, and you may be quick to notice a striking resemblance to the domes worn by the Boise State Broncos, with an enlarged steed on one side of the helmet and a uniform number on the other. While the creativity is clearly lacking with the Western Michigan helmet design, it is still a solid concept that seems to work well for the… uh, Broncos. How long until the Denver Broncos catch up to this helmet design? With Nike in charge, it should not be a surprise to see something like it at some point, right? More images of the Western Michigan helmets after the jump… Western Michigan had some fun with their look last season, and I can only imagine that at some point we will see this helmet design be given a different color scheme. Perhaps a black helmet with a golden bronco logo and numbering? While black as an alternate look may not be my cup o tea, I would be curious to see how it looks before casting any further judgement. For now, well done Western Michigan, even if you did copy off the Boise State helmets. But hey, Western Michigan certainly was not the first to commit such a uniform crime. What do you think about these helmets? Share your thoughts in the comment section below. Helmet sticker to Western Michigan Athletics for the photos. Hype this up on BallHyped!
