Football is a sport for the rough and rowdy, but when you decide to combine bling and blind sides you end up with luxury linebacker looks like the new Notre Dame Gold Helmets.

The university, known for their Fighting Irish team of tacklers, are set to debut a flashy new fixture to their uniforms: a helmet coated in 23.9 carats worth of gold flakes. The school boasts a building topped with a golden dome, so they decided to represent the symbolism of the iconic architecture in the school's trademark sport. After five tries to find the perfect mix of Midas-hued metallic, the covers are plushly prepared to fend off drop kicks and defensive lines head first.
