Get over it. We have had that stupid mascot on our helmets and we have sucked forever. It's time to move the whole place in a new direction. Cy will still be around shaking hands with the kids and representing. It's time to move on. Your life has come down to trying to save a decal on the side of a helmet. It's time to look at the new era like a fresh start. We have new coaches in almost ever sport (bill Fennely not included). So jump on our side for a while and do whatever your not used to doing. The old way did not work. The old logo did not work. The Ketchup and Mustard uni's did not work.
The big problem I have with the Cy on our helmet now is the amount of blue in it. I like that we're getting away from blue for good. Leaving our current logo on the helmet for next year would go against pretty much what everyone on this board and other boards agreed on...NO BLUE!
Sorry, I just loved our logo and don't care what anyone else thinks. I think the I-state looks stupid and at least put ISU since we actually cheer that. Sooooooo many kids relate to "Cy." I thought the logo was amazing. Hopefully the new one will grow on me over time.
I originally posted the Save CY e-mail on this board when I got it in my e-mail. I do like the new logo, but I think that the marketing group at the university should re-vamp the cy or change it to the walking CY. I know CY is not going away, but we need to make sure he still has a presence.
I also love the baby CY that is on some of the kids clothes. You can't get any cuter than a baby CY.
Did anyone else ever get caught up in the "amazingness" of our old swirly butt logo?? I often found myself veering off the road while dreaming of how someone could have ever invented such a perfect capsule of our Cyclone spirit.
The cy in the tornado look was my all time favorite. I don't think we should get rid of it just because we didn't have great 'tradition' with it. But I'm still ok with wanting to change it. Give me some 10 wins seasons and I will care less what is on the helmets.
