    Re: ISU wearing all white unis Friday

    It amazes me the confusion people have with adding an alternate jersey that we will wear maximum of once a year with completely changing our uniform. It's ONE game. It is fun to change it up every once in a while.

    In this case it's probably not even an alternate jersey - it's alternate PANTS (perhaps also an alternate helmet)!!!

    nobody uses them or has to on a message board. I was just responding to the amazement over proper footnoting when it was, in fact, not proper footnoting.

    That said, I don't care what uniform the guys wear. Just win.

    Honestly, this is the kind of move coach Rhoads is gonna have to make. Embrace the spotlight when we hit the big stage. Let's go all out! Bring out what ever tools you can to help the team look around and say "This is what it's supposed to feel like fellas! This is OUR time to shine!"

    LETS GOOOOOO STATE!!!!


    This is how we FINISH STRONG!!!

    I love this, anything to get some national pub. Conversely, if we do wear them and then come out and get pounded...not good. Especially with all of this garbage about conference realignment flying around; let the team go out and do something different and exciting. I hope it gets the team JACKED, we need to start 3-0!

    How idiotic are you? Serious question.

    Countless times it has to be discussed how sure our uniforms maybe similar to USC's but are different at the same time. And forget the fact that we had similar uniforms in the 70's.

    Just because we could potentially wear a white helmet with our white away jersey, and alternative white pants, does not mean we have texas road jerseys.

    Yeah but cardinal mixed with gold makes burnt orange

    For real though, I think alternates are a great idea. And I really hope to see white helmets, too.

    Enough with the gold jersey crowd. Our gold football jerseys last year against Mizzou were terrible, same wearing all gold in home basketball games.

    I think a lot of people like the all-gold bball unis. Not to say others don't hate it.

    I'm less inclined to like the gold football jerseys ... didn't look quite as good in reality as I expected (with the talk leading up to the game).

    If we're going radically off-the-map with alternates, I prefer all-gold to all-white (sparingly).

    Sounds like players and recruits loved them. Sorry, but their opinions take precedence, and if that upsets a few fans, so be it.
