    What if I-State blows out Kent State?

    I wonder what a blowout would tell us, and what impact it might have on the rest of the season?
    Would it get us overconfident?
    Would it show us we can win?
    Or would it not mean much against a weaker opponent?
    I hope it would show that we will play to our potential, no matter how good or bad the opponent is.

    Re: What if I-State blows out Kent State?

    It'd be nice, but I don't think it would matter in the long run. At the end of the day, Kent State is still a .500 MAC team.

    Until we play Iowa, I don't think we'll have an accurate idea of where this team is at.

    This is what I wish for.
    Am I the only one having a tough time with the I-State?

    I think it looks odd, you aren't alone.

    I would say not until the Toledo game. We always come to play against Iowa. First road game against a hungry team who feels like they could have beat us last year.

    If we lose to Kent State by more than 7, I think we'll have a great idea of where the team is at. Fortunately I don't think that's going to happen.

    Using the same argument everyone has had against this, wouldn't ISU have looked weird at one point?

    I know we are technically Iowa State University and not just Iowa State but still that just a small technicality.

    I wonder how strongly the correlation is between those conservative cyclones who don't want a new image or logo, and those conservative cyclones who feel we should be happy with 7-5 because that is as good as it gets.

    Re: What if I-State blows out Kent State?

    I just want something that we can be happy with 40 years down the road and that won't seem outdated in the future. By that I mean something simple and understated or completely opposite from that lime/neon/teal green that was used on cars in the mid '90's like this.......

    Vehicle Detail Page - AutoExtra.com

    To me that is what the bird in a blender, Oregon Uni's and all that seem like. How is it all going to look 15 years down the road.

    * The car reference is in this post to show how far off track this post has been taken, even with Bryce trying to bring it back.*

    Penn State's helmet's don't say "P-state" on them. I just don't think Jamie is getting sound market-based advice. He says it is marketability and recognition driving the need for a helmet change. The helmet is one of the things that Macarney got right! Although it should be on a SAn Francisco 49er schemed and colored gold helmet.
    I don't know what market research he is getting fed, but the swirling bird is awesome, it created interest, it is singular and unique amongst boring helmets, it is everything that we need. Leave it alone.
    Anyone else notice that Chizik has had white helmets at his last two stops too? He likes a white helmet, so he gets a white helmet I guess.

    Actually, we're technically "Iowa State University of Science and Technology", if you want to be picky.

    Let's go ISUoSaT!

    Re: What if I-State blows out Kent State?

    Now that would be hard to read from far away on a white helmet.

    So condense it to:

    SIT ... kinda like ATM.

    Not only would it be the helmet logo, it could be a visual representation of what the people around me at games constantly tell me to do.

    Re: What if I-State blows out Kent State?

    I don't know how this got off track, but how is I-State different from ISU or K-State or the MU or any other abbreviation? I-State stands for Iowa State, not eye-state or aye-state. I like the look, we've needed it for a long time.

    I am not against it. Just stating that it will be a hard change to get used to. It really doesn't roll off the tongue right.
