Riddell seems confused about what Kevin Wilson to the Big Ten really meant

The above photo comes courtesy of a man named Jack Mulichak, via CNBC journalist and Twitter fanatic Darren Rovell. If you’ll notice, there are 11 school helmets (and the Big Ten conference logo) being sold in this set.

You’ll also notice that Riddell replaced Indiana with Oklahoma. Easy mistake – plenty of discussion today about how similar Indiana’s “new” uniforms look to Oklahoma’s, and there was that whole Indiana hiring OU coach Kevin Wilson-thing.

Obviously this is old – the Big Ten logo is old, and there’s also no Nebraska. Still – pretty odd and sorta fitting that Indiana would be the one missing.

Perhaps this season’s set will include Indiana, but replace the Ohio State helmet with a Matchbox Dodge Charger. One can only dream.

    Bring back the helmet block “I” and then add it to the collection.

    The Block I isn’t coming back. The IU pitchfork is our logo.

    When I see the Block I, I immediately visualize Henry Blake and his Illinois sweater on MASH. The pitchfork is unique and distinctive.

    Also, where is OSU? Why is Notre Dame there instead?

    OSU is right above Wisconsin. There is no Notre Dame helmet up there.

    How fitting that they would give IU the Rodney Dangerfield treatment. No Respect!!

    I guess even the Big Ten forgets that Indiana has a football team.

    Greg, I did the same thing, had to stare at it for a minute to realize it was OSU. The helmets just don’t look the same without the buckeye stickers on them.
