    This whole uniform exercise

    I wish they would just pick one and run with it. I don't like the whole world (esp non-ISU students, alums, fans) inspecting our laundry like this.

    Remember the "new" Hawk logo a few years ago? Herky of Meth

    At least no one is pushing something as lame as that.

    I like the whole idea. The FB team gets to plaster ISU all over the sports page and they don't even have to play a game. I don't know what to think about the new helmet choices. I liked one better than the other two, but they all looked pretty generic to me.

    I have a feeling you're right. They probably made the other 2 choices inferior on purpose so Cyclone fans would gravitate towards the I-State design...

    Re: This whole uniform exercise

    I don't think anybody needs to put too much stock into this poll.

    As mentioned in the thread about fanfest, sounds like JP might have his mind made up on the white helmets with the "I State" logo.

    This probably doesn't have as much to do with fan input, as it does stirring the pot, getting the juices flowing and getting ISU more air and print time.

    Timing seems a little auspicious, no? I mean, if they really gave a rip what the fans thought - would they launch this poll now? No, the would've done it May or something, when there's ample time and nothing else going on.

    This is a precursor and introduction for a new era in ISU football and getting fans excited. Hold a gun to JP's head, I'd wager you'd find out that the decision has long been made and the order already placed with the uniform company.

    It is fun thought, isn't it?

    Re: This whole uniform exercise

    As much as I loathe the white helmets and all of the bland and unoriginal logo options, I have resigned myself to the fact that it's going to happen. Of all of them, I find the "I-State" logo to be the least objectionable, so I guess I hope they choose that one. I agree with the other posters who think that JP and Chizik have probably already picked that one out and are just letting fans sound off in a meaningless online poll to generate interest. I may hate the uniforms, but that won't affect how hard I cheer for the team. Ugly white helmets or no ugly white helmets... Let's go State!

    You should save your loathing for something worthwhile...like the hawkeyes or any other opponent...not our FB helmets.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: This whole uniform exercise

    I'm just taking a wild guess here, but the Iowa State header at Home - CYCLONES.com—The Official Web Site of Iowa State University Athletics has the same font as the I State logo so I am thinking that it is a foregone conclusion as to which logo will win out.

    Wouldn't go that far just based on the header - the ISU helmet is in the same lettering as the header as well. That being said, it probably is going to be the I-State logo. I just find it strange that everyone's complaint was that Cy was too busy for the helmet and too difficult to read on TV, yet everyone thinks that the busy "I-State" logo is perfect for the helmet (and will likely be difficult to read on TV).

    The ISU is in that same font as well.

    I wish if they had their mind made up that they would have just revealed one as the new design. I'm sure I would like the I-State design better if I hadn't seen the classic look of the ISU helmet. I still think I-State is a little too modern, and the gold "State" doesn't show up as well on the white background as the all red ISU.
