12:28 PM ET 03.29 | If Western Kentucky head coach Bobby Petrino's Twitter feed is any indication, the Hilltoppers may be considering shiny chrome helmets for the 2013 season. Petrino posted a tweet Friday with a picture of a chrome WKU helmet and asked "What do you think?" If Western Kentucky decides to sport the reflective helmets next season, and any other uniform adjustments that could come, it wouldn't be the first time a Petrino-led team diverted from traditional uniform style. During his time at Arkansas, the Razorbacks went from wearing simple, classic uniforms to these monstrosities.

Next, the NCAA outlaws chrome helmets for safety reasons.

Oregon Ducks had a chrome version for a few yrs now and so far the NCAA hasn't banned them yet.

Now if they made the field "chrome" that would be something!

May you injure yourself zipping up.

Perhaps WKU is picking up a Google endorsement.

Chrome is for bumpers.

Helmets should not be used for bumpers.

I think they're kind of cool. However, with all the uniform and helmet changes going on in CFB ... some teams trot out multiple unis in a season ... that can't be cheap. I hope Nike, Reebok, Adidas etc are paying for this.

Chrome on a trailer hitch ... which doesn't last long if you meet the right type of woman.

BP is definitely an obsessed Harley-Davidson owner. Now he's got something else to polish and buff and shine up. And you can't have too much chrome.
