    Yep, yet another uniform thread

    Someone mentioned in an earlier uniform thread that we should just have cardinal, gold, and white options of helmets, jerseys, and pants. I was thinking this would be really cool as well, but probably not affordable to do?

    However, we already have cardinal, gold, and white jerseys... so that's covered. And we already have cardinal and gold pants, so we just need white ones made. It's the helmets that are a problem, and unfortunately also the most expensive by far. We would need to make gold ones, and white ones both.

    I'm not sure how much that would cost to do? Would Nike or the helmet manufacturer cover any of the cost to do this at all? Or do we pay 100% of the cost of all aspects of our uniforms?

    Obviously, none of this is very important, but one of the biggest complaints about ISU is that we're always changing our uniforms and we don't have any consistent identity. That is true, but we aren't going to change that fact unless we stick with our current uniforms for 10+ years, which is highly unlikely. So why not embrace the fact we don't have any consistency.

    Oregon has the least consistency of any program as far as uniforms go. But they embrace that fact, and have multiple designs to choose from. The one consistent fact they do have though is their logo. So I don't think we want to change that part at all. Just color combinations.

    I think having cool uniform combinations actually can help to get us a few better recruits too. That probably sounds stupid, but as Arnaud said about the new scoreboard... the scoreboard alone will probably result in 4 or 5 recruits a year coming here to play versus going somewhere else.

    I'm thinking cool uniform combinations could result in a few more recruits possibly too? Maybe I'm crazy? But it obviously couldn't hurt. A lot of big time programs are going with new uniform combos. Miami, Va Tech, Boise St, Oregon, TCU, etc.

    I guess I was just wondering how feasible this would really be for ISU to add two new colored helmet combos and one more colored pant? Then we could come up with a lot of cool uniform combinations. I think the players would really enjoy that too.

    helmets are really expensive..I don't see us spending the money to buy a bunch of new ones.

    The red helmet on top of all white wouldn't look bad either.

    New Wyoming Football Uniforms

    NIKE just put out some new three-color combos for Wyoming's uniforms. I too would like to know in these situations if the school picks up this cost or NIKE. This is a good way for Nike to drum up apparel sales for the home town fans, maybe they put all this stuff at their cost.

    Yeah, I know. That's why I was wondering if we'd have to pay the whole bill to get new ones or not? If we would, then I don't see it happening.

    Thanks for posting this. This is exactly what we need! If Wyoming can do it, we sure can, right?

    I've never been a big fan of Wyoming's uniforms, but man, they sure do have a lot of sweet possible combinations with those 3 helmets, 3 jerseys, and 3 pant colors.

    Get it done JP! People have posted what our combinations would look like, and most of them are really cool. All white looks awesome, as does all white with cardinal helmets. Gold helmets with cardinal jerseys, and gold pants would also look really sweet at home IMO.

    I'm guessing that NIKE gives teams a heck of a deal for doing this? How could Wyoming afford to do it?

    I actually wanted to see if this was a doom and gloom, negative post like you typically have.

    Please try to stay on topic. If you don't like my posts, that's fine with me. I don't really care. I don't want this thread to turn into another shouting match with you and I putting each other down.

    I just wanted to see what people thought about having 3 helmet, jersey, and pant colors... and if it was even feasible or not? Either you have something to add regarding this or you don't. That's fine, but don't just come on here and hijack it and turn it into a p###ing match.

    Re: Yep, yet another uniform thread

    I promise you it is not the cost of the helmets that is preventing ISU from having a dozen color schemes.

    That's good to hear! So we have some hope at least?

    Is it because JP wants to have some consistency in our branding? If so, I appreciate his concerns, but we just are never going to have the brand that Penn State, Alabama, USC, Texas, Oklahoma, etc have. It's just NEVER going to happen.

    So why not embrace the fact that we've changed our uniforms too much in the past? Keep the logo, font, and color scheme the same... do NOT change that part. Keep the I-State logo, the current colors of cardinal, gold, and white... just have the option to mix the color combinations up a bit.

    I'm glad to hear it's not a financial problem though. That means we just need to convince JP to do it. I bet every single player would vote for it.

    Thanks for your brilliant and intelligent insight. You calling this thread dumb is pretty ironic.

    Having eight different uniforms really help Minnesota, didn't it? It was a joke up here to me. Win football games, then mess around with new clothing.
