Rhode Island Rams (1997-99)

From the Columbia Lions to their CAA doppelgängers ... From 1993-99, Rhode Island ditched its trademark ram-horn helmets in favor of the traditional "RI" logo. I like the "RI" logo OK, but isn't there some sort of law stating that any team called the "Rams" has to have ram horns on the helmets??

In '97, the blue pants worn from 1993-96 were worn for at least one game. Light blue socks were worn in 1998-99, but low-cut socks were worn, as well.

In 2000, a coaching change was made and the ram horns returned to the helmets, where they remain today.

The back cover of the 2000 Rhody media guide has a couple shots
of the 1999 uniform.

There are more uniforms out there from Rhody: 2014, 2013, 1983-921976-8219661957-611936-39. Rivalry Week: UConn-Rhody.
