    I don't see the problem...

    Everyone keeps saying that the white helmets will look awful with the home uniforms because of the gold pants. When I look at the pictures, I see cardinal, gold, and white on the helmets, jerseys, and pants for both home and away. I even ran it by my fashion diva wife and she said it definitely matches. It's not like one is purple and one is pea green. Cardinal, Gold, and White appear on each piece (granted one color is dominant) and so there is a color coordinated uniform.

    White goes with everything by the way.

    I'm all in favor of the change and I happen to like the way everything looks and ties together.

    "White goes with everything by the way."

    Yeah, but we'll play all the games, except one, after Labor Day.

    I am with you...it doesn't bother me at all. Nice change and the more I look at it the more I like it. Some people don't like change and this is a big one so it will meet a lot of resistance, especially in the ultraconservative crowd that is ISU message board posters.

    I didn't like the idea of white helmet at first either. But now I am starting to see that it actually looks good picturing the colors in my head.

    Everybody should have learned while they were growing up that the good guys wear white hats.

    I too did not like them at first. But everytime I look at them I like them more, so I look at them everyday. I won't make a final decision though till I see them wearing the new unis in a game.

    Re: I don't see the problem...

    Last time I checked with the athletic dept the school colors were Cardinal and Gold NOT CARDINAL AND GOLD AND WHITE!!!


    With a white helmet and gold pants the uniforms will look mismatched. At least use white pants with white helmets like say Okie State does with their black and orange halloween colors!

    I don't think Auburn, Texas and Oklahoma State have white as a school color, yet they all still have white helmets, so why not us?

    All three wear white pants - at least at home. That's why.


    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?

    Re: I don't see the problem...

    I've come to the realization that if I want to have an opinion on fashion, color coordinating, furniture placement, etc. then I need to ask my girlfriend for it.

    Apparently I suck at that stuff. She likes the same helmet I do by the way. :)

    We are perfect for each other! LOL!

    oh god, and noone else in history has added white to their uni's...give me a break, white isn't a color its an absence of color...mostly used to accent and highlight the actual colors.
