Ok - we all saw what logo was on the helmets for the spring game (ECU sabre). So....
Question #1 to Stephen -- do you have any inside scoop on the change?
And of course Question #2 -- Which logo do you like better on the helmets and why?
I'll go against superstition and go with the skull & xbones/jolly roger. There are dozens of "U"s on helmets (OSU, TCU, LSU, etc.) and I like being recognized as Pirates right off the bat when and if we're ever shown on National TV. Just IMHO - no right or wrong answer here.
ECU sabre. If we do change up our uniforms some i would like to at lest have the helmets look traditional. Jolly Rodger looks to Cartoony.
The JR is my favorite of our logos, but when it comes to the helmets I would prefer we go with the ECU.
"Life’s pretty good, and why wouldn’t it be? I’m a pirate, after all."
the argument for ECU on the side is so people know who is playing. Well if someone doesnt know what school the pirates are, (or that a s&c is used by pirates) then why would they know who ECU is? Also if its on TV our name is on the scoreboard and if you cant read a scoreboard you cant read a logo on a helmet.
also people say the logo looks high schoolish or cartoonish. What about NFL teams? Are they high schoolish?
I like the JR helmet better. We just need to spice the unis up a little...but I'm not sure how.

The Jolly Roger had to grow on me at first but I def. like it better than the saber after seeing the spring game. The helmets with the saber on them look to be a little lighter than the shade of purple when we use the Jolly Roger. Hoping they stick with JR though.
In the he's current designing would prefer the sabre and ECU logo. If they could redesign the jr logo to be more sinister looking I'd be all for that. Kind of like when Tampa bay changes from the cheesy orange buccaneer to the current design, looks much better
Damn iPhone, meant to say in the JR's current design
The Jolly Roger! We are PIRATES! Right?
I much prefer the Jolly Roger. I think it is distinctive. The helmets Saturday looked pretty bland. The players also like the JR, which some say is unimportant, but appealing to recruits does matter. We should stick with the JR logo we've been using and modify the rest of the uniform to incorporate some gold IMO
How about a straight jolly roger? No hat, just skull n crossbones?
I like the JR over "ECU Sabre." But I think the JR's composition needs to be examined. I think it is almost too small to look right on the helmet.
I like the JR helmets. They match the tattoo on my left arm.
Show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser"
Seriously though, was their any significance to us using those older helmets? They had been using plain purple ones in practice.
older helmets? they just slapped those decals on the other day
Older style of logo on them...
Keep Skully, can always have ECU on 1 side of helmet & S&C on the other.
My adopt-a-Pirate, Lance Ray, LRay
also, they probably just wanted to put something on there. they didn't even put any on the helmets last year
I really believe we will be straying away from helmet logos that don't have the words ECU on them in the future. I have a source in the marketing field for sports at ECU who tells me getting our identity out there is part of the agenda currently, and they think the actual words ECU are the best way to get it done.
Love the JR.
I honestly don't care what logo is on the helmets..
My Ranking would be:
1. Jolly Roger
2. Pirates Script
3. ECU Sabre
ECU Jolly Roger Logo =/= Skully
Skully is the UBE logo.
Well you're in the minority. The sabre sucks unless they throw some more color in instead of piss yellow.
JR sucks. Gimme ECU sabre, or Pirates script, or ANYTHING else.
Please explain how the Jr sucks?
Igoe said this should be Tuesday's Sports Bar poll question. I have to agree.
Do you like the Skull and Bones or ECU sabre helmet?
Any answers beyond this point will be used on Tuesday's show at 4 on Pirate Radio.
