Buffalo State is a new member of this conference in 2012.
Frostburg State has a new helmet design in 2012 (shown above).
I have been waiting for several years to get a copy of the Hartwick helmet logo. In 2005 (or possibly earlier) the team switched to a new logo - "HARTWICK" in blue letters - as shown in the photo below. The new logo was only slightly different from its predecessor and was apparently still in use through 2011. I would appreciate a copy of the helmet logo for this team.

A visitor to this web site reported that from the late 1960s through 1999 Alfred used purple helmets with white facemasks and a logo consisting of the word "Alfred" in a script style, colored white.
|1993 - 1996;
1998 - 1999
|2001||2000; 2002 - 2006|
|2007 - 2008||2009 -|
The helmet design from the first two seasons of Buffalo State football (1980 and 1981) has been reported as being "plain white" (facemask color not specified).
|2005 (first game only?)||? - 2006||2007 - 2010|
Photographs from From Frostburg State's first game of the 2005 season vs. The Apprentice School show the team wearing plain black helmets, but it was reported to me that the team was soon thereafter using the "paw" decals once again.

No information about historical helmets has ever been received for this team.

Ithaca's current helmet design has apparently been used for many years, I believe probably at least since the 1980s.
|1999 - 2003||2004 - 2005||2006 - 2010|
The next older helmet for Salisbury preceding those shown here (used from ? - 1998) has been described to me as having a maroon shell, gold facemask, and a large script "S" decal.

The first design shown above was apparently in use since at least the late 1990s.
|2001 - 2006||2007||2008 -|
The Utica football team first played in 2001 and I believe that the helmet designs shown above are the only ones that have been used by the team.
