    Student petition to keep CY logo...

    I heard that over 3,000 students have signed a petition to keep the Cy logo and not replace it with the I State logo. Students believe it make us unique while the I State could be Illinois State, Idahoa State, Indiana State, etc. I have to agree the Cy logo with the ISU is distinctive to Iowa State.

    They could get 30,000 to sign their petition, it won't matter. The decision has been made and I have a hard time understanding why people care so much. It's not like Cy is being run outa town, he'll still be our mascot.

    I hate the new logo with a passion but understand it's not going away. It would make JP look bad if he fell back on his word.

    Yeah, the new logo's boring, but I think it's an improvement over the current logo. I wish we could get a simple logo w/no words. C'mon, we're the cyclones. Hire a graphic designer to create a logo for a tornado. It would look great.

    That's how the perfectly adequate previous logo was developed...

    Re: Student petition to keep CY logo...

    You're never going to please everyone. We had a poll on here after the new uniforms were revealed and some 80% of the people gave them a thumbs up. I was one of those and I still am. The I-State logo will be a huge improvement in terms of how we look on TV... which is really all I care about.

    New logo is here to stay boys and girls...

    The old logo sucks anyway. If we want to change it put the walking cy back as the logo.

    i love the new logo, the reasoning and the entire concept behind the change. it makes complete sense. i, however, have not gotten to explain the reasoning to anyone who disagrees because i get the "YEAH BUT CY..." before they even listen. frankly, i cant wait for the "Keep Cy Out of the Logo" petition so I can sign that one. Like people have said, hes still the mascot, just not part of the logo. for those of you signing the petition, do most of you really not understand that?

    He said SIMPLE logo. The "bird in a blender" was not a simple logo.

    I-State is OK, but I agree it would have been sweet to have a cool tornado logo.

    Come on people!!! When's the last time you heard or say any media info on these other "I State" schools? Think about it... never. There won't be any confusion. Mississippi State has "M State" & look at all the schools with a similar name. There's more to it than the name. It's the colors, logo, mascot, etc. Can we freakin move on from this & just support JP, the teams & yes, the new logo!

    All of your posts seem to be trying to make Pollard and Geoffrey look bad. I wonder why?

    Re: Student petition to keep CY logo...

    I signed the petition. im not a student and i know that cy has never been on the helmet before(old helmet just said "cyclones") i know it wont change anything, but id like my 2cents to be heard.acknowledged anyway.

    The reason i prefer the current logo because it distinguishes ISU for me. The I-State logo is pretty vague.

    i always thought they needed to add an option for those who pefer to keep the current helemt, but apparently that wasnt considered.

    except that all of these schools currently go by ISU. JP mentions this in the press conference that you obviously didnt listen to. even if you did watched it online, it doesnt mean you LISTENED to what he said. no one currently goes by I-State. JP wants to grab it now. there were times when no one went by K-State or M-State either...they made a marketing effort to wrap it up and it has been theirs ever since.

    again, by not listening to the the presser, you missed the message JP delivered. you know, the story about coaches going on recruiting trips (wearing apparel with the ISU spinning brid) and recruits were asking if we were the Louisville Cardinals or the Illinois State Redbirds. OBVIOUSLY "the Cy logo with the ISU" IS NOT "distinctive to Iowa State"

    Yeah except for when I see OU, it could be Ohio U. When I see USC, is is Southern Cal or South Carolina?

    That argument does not hold water. WE just need to embrace that logo and be bigger than Ill state, or Indiana State. We need to become the trademark, which will not happen unless everyone is on board.

    I for one love the new logo. Simple and classic.

    Re: Student petition to keep CY logo...

    Well, if we are being confused by Indiana State or Illinois State, we got more problems than our damn logo.

    People have too much time on their hands if they are going to set up websites and petitions over a football helmet. I realize it's boring in Iowa, but it aint that bad.
