"Retro (just like Miami)"
I would think he means Virginia 06' throwback Thursday helmets.
I think most Tech fans loved those helmets and would be very excited to have those as our helmet for the season. I also hear that we will probably keep the traditional Gold helmet white GT. 2 helmets were too costly to keep around in 06', which is why they had to sell them at auction after the game (I'm sure they actually made money on that ordeal) but I would assume with us resigning with Russel, that this was part of the deal for them to step up and provide 3 jerseys and 2 helmets for 08'. From what was being said on the Hive, Russel is going to use us as a launch pad to get their name back out there as a big name apparel line, so I would assume with that in mind, they would be willing to do whatever the team ask to keep that relationship with GT strong.
