Notre Dame Fans...the helmet issue?

Does anyone know if the other helmets NCAA 13 has for the Irish turn "brown" once the lights go down and it's a night game? I played my first this evening and if it wasn't the middle of the night I'd jump back on and test it. I had heard of this issue, but just saw it and it looks terrible. Dim lighting of night time apparently makes the ND helmet mud brown, despite the fact that stadium lighting in real life dazzles it up since it's (now) reflective gold (not a big fan of that Kelly move, but whatever). You have the choice of the goofy gold one with the shamrock on the side or something called the ND 2010 or something like that. I was just wondering as I head to bed if anyone had played ND and found the other helmets to not go mud brown? It's REALLY distracting and ugly as crap. The game's graphics are beautiful, but that's a major error in my opinion. Yes, it's just helmets and I'm being OCD...but it's awful looking. Thanks for the input.

It's annoying, but for now, I'm using the helmet "10 Gold" and it doesn't seem to have that brown effect when the sun goes down and lights come on.

The Michigan State pro combat helmets also do tend to turn from bronze to brown I believe

Colorado's helmets have turned brown the past four years. Welcome to the club!

All Helmets look obnoxious. I see the ND thing, but they all look like they are wrapped in 20 layers of saran wrap...what is EA looking at

I'm also using the 10 Gold helmet, and that appears to be working fine, for now

Ohio State's helmets go from sparkling silver to dull grey on night games, not nearly as bad as what Notre Dame and Colorado have to look at but still annoying.
