    Maybe a misprint...but the ticker on GMA just flashed on the screen and said Iowa State will wear ALL WHITE jerseys...

    Iowa State sports information director Tom Kroeschell said...It will be the first time Iowa State has donned white jerseys and white pants since playing at Colorado in 2006. Players will still were their usual cardinal helmets.

    Again....just because they are claiming they will wear cardinal helmets doesn't mean there is no chance they have white helmets. You just never know.

    Question regarding changing helmets...

    I know they do this in college/NFL often. It can be painful and cause headaches breaking in a helmet (and getting used to wearing one again) - do they just take the inside of the helmet and transfer it or do they wear these so lose in college/NFL it's not an issue?

    Always wondered that too. It takes awhile to get used to a helmet and chinstrap - unless they are using the same 'insides' same chinstrap, it would suck changing helmets. And isn't there a potential safety issue with using a different helmet?

    Good question. I'd imagine they either switch out the insides or that the adrenaline of the game cancels out the discomfort. I imagine they keep the same helmet for practice to avoid the discomfort, but I imagine they don't notice the discomfort during the game.

    Great thought. I would side with changing helmet's can get uncomfortable. Cracked a evolution helmet in high school mid-game and had to get a different one quick. Very, very uncomfortable.

    Re: ISU wearing all white unis Friday

    I've stayed out of this since this announcement but I think I should say something because I have been vocal about this in the past.

    When the select the helmet logo poll came out years ago and it was on a white helmet I emailed Jamie and said I didn't like the white helmet. He commented that he had gotten a lot of such feedback and the message was received. He assured me the helmets would not be white.

    When the pic was leaked of the equipment room white helmet I said it isn't one of our school colors and I thought we should stick to the school colors.

    But now when we find out that we are going to have the team all in white, I think it should be topped off with a white helmet.

    By the way, I like the all white away uniform for a special alternate but I'm also glad it isn't our standard away uniform. I've always thought it looked bad on Texas. Some love it, but I don't.

    Personally, I think the all white Texas uniform is the best in college sports....

    Respectfully disagree and I think that Penn States all whites are the best and that should be the only jersey that they are allowed to wear. I also haven't read every post in this thread so I don't know if this has been mentioned but this look will resemble Oklahoma's away jerseys.

    Fair enough - I may be in the minority. But does anyone else think they look more ready to play cricket than football?

    I agree with you on the football gold, I like them for basketball.

    I thought the gold jerseys against Mizzou looked hideous and I'm being kind.
