    Dear "Save Cy" People

    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.

    Basically this is our chance to start all over.

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    The only Cy that should EVER have been on the helmets is "Kicking Cy". That dude rocks! I've never understood the attraction of the "bird in a blender, twisty-butt" Cy.

    Me likes the "I". Don't matter if it as "State" or "sIu" or has "ISU" down the "I".

    Me STILL likes the "I".

    They're entitled to their opinion. I can see where they are coming from.

    I like what we've selected though.

    Yeah the only "cy" I liked was the Marching forward with a growl on his face "cy". I think you refered to it as the kicking Cy.

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    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!

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    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.

    Cy will still be around. Just not on our helmets.

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    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.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    I like to picture Cy in a tuxedo T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party!


    Hey! It's all ball bearings nowadays.

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    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.

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    So far they have 3000 sigs on their petition. Probably due to KCRG's story about them. I wonder how many people voted for the new logo?

    I'm very happy with the new I-State logo. Sharp and easily identifiable from a distance. The current logo jumbles together from the nosebleeds at JT.

    Re: Dear "Save Cy" People

    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.
