bands on arms of college football players

i have noticed alot of college football players wearing what looks to be like plastic bands on their arms this year...anyone know what that is about?
they look pretty. that is all.
They supposedly can help in preventing tendinitis.

thats a load.
Happened to run across this: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_purpose_of_the_tight_narrow_armbands_often_worn_on_the_arms_above_the_elbows_by_college_and_pro_football_players&alreadyAsked=1&rtitle=What_are_arm_bands_used_for_in_football

But obviously, it's not like this is a top notch source or anything.
haha there was an interview with dashon goldson a couple days ago posted on the home page in which someone asked this. He said its simply an expression of style.
