    Uniforms

    I know there was a buzz going into Friday's game that we would be wearing an alternate uniform of some sort (possibly gold, because of the gold towels that were promoted.) However, we came out in the usual cardinal and gold like we have for all the home games this year. IMO I thought this was a great move, since the entire nation got to see the Cyclones wearing their standby. Hopefully with all this hype after the upset the new branding (which is 3+ years in the making) will finally grab hold as the identity of the Iowa State Cyclones.
    Thoughts?

    Re: Uniforms

    I like alternate jerseys, but given the stage, given what we had to prove, I like that we went with our standard kit. Nothing like getting the majority of the nation on our sides while sticking true to our roots.

    I can't tell you how many texts / facebook notes I got from friends all over the country excited for us. EVERYONE was watching and I like that we went standard Cardinal and Gold. It's about establishing an identity.

    When we start playing like that regularly, then sure, we can throw some Oregon / Maryland style kits into the mix.

    Re: Uniforms

    I think the alternates would've almost been distracting for the players. Glad we went with the standard unis.

    Re: Uniforms

    We would have gotten the same pub with all gold uni's. The upset mattered what we dressed in doesn't.

    Re: Uniforms

    I agree that the publicity would be the same regardless, but I prefer to believe that the nation "now knows" what the Cyclones look like when they take the field. Maybe it's silly of me, but I love publicity like that.

    Until I applied here for graduate school, I literally did not know that Iowa State existed. I like that we represented our colors and our passion well on national TV.

    Except then a team with gold unis would've gotten pub. Getting your main jersey exposure > getting an alternate jersey exposure. Especially since we are Iowa State and because everyone thinks we look just like USC.

    Re: Uniforms

    CPR asked the Seniors what they wanted to wear...they said regular jerseys. I was really surprised that they wore them last year as it totally goes against this teams values as a blue collar, show up for work and take care of business with no frills team.

    Re: Uniforms

    If CPR asked the seniors (and it was senior night), then go with that. I respect that.

    It's their last game in home Cyclone unis. Might as well go out in style (and with a win!)

    Iowa State, Paul Rhoads, and Hickory Park were all trending on twitter Fiday night. The sad thing is that it was spelled most commonly as "Rhodes"

    On another twitter side note regarding our uniforms, Fake Dan Beebe recognized Iowa State's great weekend and our two big wins against Oklahoma State and then Oregon.

    How could you possibly disagree? In the past 5 years Iowa State has worn cardinal tops at home about what, 30 times? And one time they wore gold tops. During your biggest win and the one night you get the most exposure, you want to be wearing what you usually wear so people who might never watch Iowa State, the big 12, ect will be able to immediately associate us with what we look like roughly 95% of the time.

    It was great to see ISU get the win in our colors.
