    They tried to make a big splash with a reveal in the Krannert Center (their CY Stephens).

    B O R I N G (and a tad gay)

    That'll be a snazzy new look for a 5-7 team.

    I see no problem with them, the white does look pretty sharp. And gay? How old are we, 12?

    At least they stuck with a more traditional design. They could have gone the same direction as Syracuse, who basically has the same colors and who went overboard with 90s color gradients (although I must admit the gray looks pretty sharp in the second photo):

    Another reason I'm becoming more and more disillusioned with college football. Sorry for being a kill joy, but I don't think I could care less what our team, or any other team for that matter, wears. I just want to see good, parody filled football.

    I'll step back into dream world now.

    Everyone knows that every piece of clothing has a specific sexual orientation.

    I see what you are saying but A LOT of the kids now do care what they are wearing on game days.

    I think the Kings put it best in their song Cold in the Desert

    "I'm too young to feel this old."

    See this. It's about time we had some consistency in our uniforms. The current set (even though it does look very similar to USC) is a solid tribute to the unis of the 70's. I like them, it's a shame the I State logo doesn't show up well on our helmets.
