Observations from a Maniac: The Return of Merit Decals?

While watching the Youngstown State game I noticed something a little different this week's uniform. Just above the Big XII logo I noticed a few stacked muskets. They were reminiscent of the late 1980's to early 1990's WVU teams that had musket merit decals. Watching other games this weekend I've noticed a few other teams around the country also reintroducing merit decals. 

I made a quick mock-up of what the decals looks like. I like bringing back the tradition of the musket decals however I have fear that they'll take over some players helmets over of the course of the season. The rear of todays helmets have already come crowded with: a player number, conference logo, American Flag, warning label, and for this season the 125 logo, this leaves little room for anything else.

What do you all think? Do you like the ideal of merit decals? Let us know!
