Mount Union’s new helmets are the sexiest thing this side of the Mississippi


There’s sexy… and then there’s SEXY. These right here are SEXY. With all the hype surrounding the Browns new uniform changes, little ol Mount Union just stole all of their thunder by releasing these gems right here. Um. Whoa. I believe the correct emoji is

If Mount slowly morphs into the Midwest DIII version of Oregon I’m 100% fine with that. Oregon has that Nike money, Mount gets that Timken money. As the only consistent championship team in Northeast Ohio it’s well deserved.


Akron’s new helmets are also pretty fire

ESPN’s College Gameday is considering Mount Union for next weekend’s telecast

Tuscaloosa, Alabama. South Bend, Indiana. Tallahassee, Florida. Ann Arbor, Michigan. Alliance, Ohio. When you think big time college football, those are the cities that come to mind. As a proud and very very distinguished former student I could not support this more. I’m all in on College Gameday going to Mount Union and I’d 100% go down to Alliance for this. If they can go to freaking Fargo, North Dakota; why not take a trip down Route 62 to visit Titletown and the campus of the Purple Raiders?

Hey UMU students let’s make a deal- 20 bucks and a Fireball shot at Chives if you hold up a Bottlegate.com sign and it gets on TV; 50 bucks and a trip to the Diamond Lodge if they mention your sign on TV; 100 crisp American dollars and a margarita at Jaliscos if you kiss Sam Ponder while holding a Bottlegate sign.



Where do Herbie, Corso, and Fowler stay though? Do they shack up in King? Do you put them in one of the townhouses? ATO house? Maybe just pull up the RV and park it at the 24 hour Wal Mart on State Street? So many logistical questions that I need answered.
