Do the Hurricanes Have Ugly Helmets? Rivals.com Thinks So

Maybe we're biased, but we think the University of Miami athletics logo is one of the most original and aesthetically pleasing in all of sports. It's minimalist yet says so much. However, in its ACC preview, Rivals' group of experts seems to think the team's helmet, which features the logo, is the ugliest in the conference.

The site gathered five "experts" to break down this year's ACC. Everyone seems to think Virginia Tech will win the league, and despite showing a lot of promise, the Canes are barely mentioned by the panel.

Mike Huguenin picks Jacory Harris to lead the league in passing, and David Fox thinks Leonard Hankerson will lead the ACC in receptions.

However, in the random category for "Ugliest Helmet," Miami takes two votes. To add insult to injury, FSU is the unanimous pick for "Best-Looking Helmet." Come on, guys, really? How is the U's helmet uglier than Maryland's "Terps" hat?

But three of the five panelists pick Miami for city in the league they most like to visit, because, duh.
