MSU gives Pro Combat Helmets to players

The Detroit Free Press reported yesterday that the Michigan State football players were given the Pro Combat Helmets as part of their bowl gift.

For the players, the helmet commemorates the dominating fashion in which the fourth straight victory over arch rival Michigan came. “It doesn’t happen every year, where you play in a game like that,” said sophomore linebacker Max Bullough. “For me, it’s exciting. That’s something you can hold onto forever, especially having the year we had.”

The university put the value of the helmets at $200, which is half of the bowl gift allotment by the NCAA. The remaining $200 will mostly be gift cards, which will be appreciated, but can’t be compared to the helmet. “That’s probably the most exciting gift,” said senior tight end Brian Linthicum. “Gift cards are gift cards. We get them every year. The helmet we thought we were getting right after the game. We got the gloves, jersey, everything but the helmet.”

Wide Receiver B.J. Cunningham said, “You’re going to put it up in a case, let your kids look at it. It’s an once-in-a-lifetime thing for MSU. It’s exciting to be a part of that, especially the senior class, beating (Michigan) for the fourth time.”

    While I don't really like most of the Pro Combat uniforms, I do think this is a classy idea on the part of MSU. From one of the new guys in the conference, acts like this is part of why we're happy to be a member
