The rumors appear to be confirmed. Cal might very well be using white helmets early in the season when they head to Austin to face fellow white-helmeted bedfellows Texas.

So Cal will return to a variation of the stormtrooper look next season (I'd hope it's all white, because white helmets with blue pants don't seem all that great).

I don't have much to say on this anymore. What do you think of this look potentially coming out for the Texas game next season?

Here is a sampling of takes from our readers and editors from yesterday's piece on the white helmets.

Berkelium97: Why chrome for the face mask? Why not polished gold? Also, the bear logo should be blue.

Rugbear: Both the logo and cage should be gold...that might look cool! (Remember its 'Golden Bears' not blue Bears)

alpha1906: I ain't suiting up...If they like it, and it allows us to score one more point than our opponent, then yes. I still love the mustard yellow big game unis.

napabear: I love the all-gold look too. Cal was very successful with it too, before everything started to go south under the previous regime. Go all out- gold helmets too.

maveric23: I don’t like the design. Too big and busy. Let’s just stick to the classic and timeless "Cal" script please!

Bearly Legal: Well, it's not like our most hated rival wears white helmets or anything... Oh, wait.

DaveInTheHills: DOOOOOOOOOOM!

EchoOfSilence: I absolutely love it. I understand this would probably be a one-game deal, but…. they just look so GOOD.

SuperEQ: This is why the terrorists hate us. I can’t believe these god awful helmets will not die, but the JOE ROTH UNIFORMS…. THE SINGLE GREATEST UNIFORMS IN THE HISTORY OF ALTERNATIVE UNIFORMS…ARE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!!!!

OddOskI: I suppose I can learn to love it.

CalBear949 AND AndyHogan14: Kill it with fire!

Senor Golden: I feel like older Cal fans hate them more than younger Cal fans.

Dasarte Yarnway Fan Club: I’M HIP AND WITH ITI’VE TWEETED BEFOREAnd I hate it. Helmets should only ever have block C or Cal script, in my book. Never really been a fan of the new bear logo, so….Shapeless logo+colorless helmet=meh.

DavidsonBear: They look pretty awesome and if you don’t think so, you’re flat out wrong.

JustBear: Design wise, that is so ugly. If they are going to use a white helmet, at least, couldn’t they do a better job? That is so uncreative.

wildaBeestmode: These will look bad ass in 3D.

royrules: I'm gonna throw up.

turkey: This actually isn’t bad, far better than the Cal script white helmets. Welcome to modern college football where you have to do this a game or two every year just for the hype. The slight gold tint to the cage really ties it together.

Swamphunter: No.

atomsareenough: Not particularly a fan of white helmets in general, but as far as white helmets go, these are pretty snazzy.
