    I wouldn't doubt us showing white helmets as well on Friday. If we do, id guess its something being held on the DL. Also I believe our equipment staff has had access to black shoes /socks, we've just never gone with them. I wouldn't mind seeing us were blacks with the all white unis.

    Regardless, Lets just keep freakin' winning baby.

    I don't care if we come out with pink helmets as long as we can get a W.

    If its not with a white helmet, I'd prefer to just rock our normal ones.

    Let's just say this - if Maryland's coach wasn't blowing smoke out his arse about the "Alice in Wonderland" uniforms having a surprisingly positive reaction amongst recruits considering Maryland, then people really need to shut up about hating possible alternate uniform combinations, because when all is said and done it doesn't matter what us fans think, it's about getting the best possible kids we can to wear those uniforms. If wearing all white, all cardinal, all gold, hell, all black or all hummus, gets a positive reaction out of our potential recruits and gets one more kid to sign with ISU than otherwise would, then us fans need to shut up about it.

    I'm really looking forward to all whites, if that truly is the case.

    I hope this is true...all white unis would look pretty good. Gotta have the white helmet to go with it though.

    I apparently have to be one of the only people who think all white doesn't look that great. I'd prefer to see white jerseys, white helmet, and the red pants. But I'd hold out judgement until I actually see it in the flesh.

    I can say that my flight leaves to Boston on Thursday and I will take lots of pics of the game with my girlfriends HD camera and will be sure to post them here.

    Our road uniforms rival anyone in the nation, but they probably want to do something to get some buzz on ESPN2 Friday Night Football.

    Too bad the sad match-up between Boise and Toledo got selected over ISU vs. UConn for ESPN.

    Not the only one. I'll hold my judgement until I see them, but I don't think I will like them. However, I was a big fan of the all Gold uniforms last year.

    No, there's at least two of us.

    I've said in the past that too much white minimizes secondary gold far too much (risking a look, as another post said, seeming like teams with white as secondary, such as Texas, which looks fine, but those schools are "X and WHITE")

    However, it could work OK if the helmet had the triple stripe cardinal-gold-cardinal, and cardinal-trimmed gold numbers (attached) Which probably won't happen.

    I saw that too and was very upset over it as well...

    Boise St. will wipe... Well should wipe Toledo. I just wonder why they would select a game with 2 non BCS teams over a 2 BCS teams to play on ESPN.

    Im not one to ***** about ISU being on national TV but I dont know why they set it up so we play on ESPN 2 instead of ESPN.

    Our secondary color sucks though. White/Cardinal is gorgeous
