    Logo Question

    Will the new logo chosen for the football helmet be the default logo for all sports? And shirts?

    I really, really doubt it. If they were going for a brand new logo family entirely, they would be making a way bigger deal about it, and they wouldn't be leaving it up to the fans, either. If "Cyclones" or "I State" is chosen for the helmets, I bet we'll see some clothing and window stickers with the logo (especially "I-State"), but that's all. We're not going to replace the bird in a blender for quite a while. We haven't really had it for very long, as logos go. All we're doing is adding an alternate logo for a very specific purpose.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Personally, I think whirlybird Cy is going to become much like many other athletic logos in college sports - a marketable logo, but not used on the majority of the uniforms. Here are some examples of recognizable logos that generally are not found on unis:






    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
