Great quiz--I recognized about 1/2--then began guessing, based on the letter/color of the helmet. Was lucky to get the last one with 15 sec. left.

Great idea for a quiz, nice job. Please accept "St" for all the "state" answers.

Like most all user created games that involve images - I can't see the rightmost column.

Also, does anyone know if there is there a way to change the page so that all the questions fit on the screen at the same time? On quizes that have many answers (like "name the top 100" of something), I have to waste time scrolling down over and over agin to see the questions that don't fit on the page when the answer box is showing. Thanx.

@ny_mob: Try either full-screen mode on your browser (press F11), or reduce the magnification of the screen to 75% or so.

BTW, nice quiz @km. How about including that hideous Nebraska "N" of the 80s, the one that looked like the old NBC-TV logo? There's also the Hawaii helmet with the rainbow and what I think was supposed to be a warrior, except it looked more like a really mad elf. Going way back, Princeton used to wear a helmet that looked like...well, a comb-over is probably the best description. Looking forward to the sequel(s)

Anyone else get Ohio cause you thought 14 was Ohio State?
Nov 29th, 2010 at 03:26 GMT
Great new twist on a quiz. Keep them coming.
Nov 29th, 2010 at 13:57 GMT
great quiz! do more!
Nov 29th, 2010 at 14:07 GMT
Definitely thought 8 was a bird. Certainly wouldn't have guessed a frog. No wonder they only used that for one year.
Nov 30th, 2010 at 01:56 GMT
Some of these teams should go back to these helmets.
Nov 30th, 2010 at 20:21 GMT
I would dump #6 since they didn't play Division I football until 2000, so they're an outlier. I really like the quiz though.
Dec 1st, 2010 at 03:14 GMT
Helmet number 16 needs to come back!!
Dec 1st, 2010 at 17:05 GMT
Great quiz but I totally bombed it.
Dec 1st, 2010 at 17:22 GMT
great quiz, lots of fun, and yes I did get ohio because I thought 14 was ohio state, lol
Dec 1st, 2010 at 20:58 GMT
I couldn't see the right hand column. But love the quiz.
Dec 2nd, 2010 at 22:23 GMT
Agree on No. 6. I assumed the quiz was only for D-1 schools.
Dec 6th, 2010 at 01:45 GMT
I got New Mexico because it looks like the state flag.
Jan 3rd, 2011 at 20:47 GMT
This was an awesome quiz. I'd imagine you could do a bunch of this same kind, just changing up the helmets.
Jan 6th, 2011 at 01:58 GMT
I wish Toledo would go back to this logo. I love the logo with the white and navy blue uniforms.
Apr 9th, 2011 at 02:27 GMT
i love these old helmets they should use them more often
Apr 11th, 2011 at 05:43 GMT
Purple wildcats? Northwestern... nope. Weber State... nope. Ah, forget it. ... *facepalm*
