Did You Know (or Care): Helmet history

Being that I'm a random fact/trivia buff, here's a new feature I should have added a long time ago:

Although the University of Michigan football team is noted for its throwback "winged" helmet design, the original pattern debuted in 1933 by UM's cross-state rival, Michigan StatePrinceton followed two years later, and Michigan adopted the design by which the Wolverines are best known in 1938.

At least 10 colleges (in various divisions) and dozens of high schools throughout the nation currently feature the same iconic design on their helmets today.
