    Iowa State helmets: best and worst

    Here are the helmets of the past:

    ISU Helmet History - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    My favorites are:
    1. Current helmet
    2. 1976-78

    Worst by far was Donnie Duncan's copy of the OU helmet
    1. 1979 (the worst)

    Re: Iowa State helmets: best and worst

    by far...the worst was the ketchup and blue twisty bird brought in by McCarney and Gene Smith in the 90's.

    Worst uniforms ever.

    I loved the 1986 (i think) Iowa state with the cyclone below the words. But the ome we have now is the best.

    I agree with the worst vote above.

    My favorite is 79, it might not be my favorite helmet, but it is my favorite logo. Love the star.

    1983-1994 was the worst era and uniforms ever. This timeframe and everything associated with it should be erased from the archives

    Agree. Absolutly hated the freaking navy blue and the stupid font that Dan McCarney picked out.

    Worst unis and helmets (ugh, navy blue facemask?)

    I loved the 87 helmets with "Cyclones" on the caps - this was the look while I was growing up. I wish we had yellow helmets now, as we would be the only team in the Big 12 with that look, but our current unis are boss.

    Re: Iowa State helmets: best and worst

    83-86 is my favorite, I love the cyclone on the helmet. That helmet would look awesome in my man cave. There was even a mock up of it in the ISU pro combat thread awhile ago that was sweet

    Re:Iowa State helmets: best and worst

    BuffetClone, I was VERY fortunate my sister found the 83-86 helmet at a garage sale...she texted me a "would you want this?" photo. Now it sits in my Cyclone room.

    I agree with many folks on here, glad to move past the Spinning cyclone era.

    I've always liked the 81-82 design as well.

    Partial to the 81-82 helmet. Reminds me of Duane Crutchfield steam rolling people.

    Re: Iowa State helmets: best and worst

    I really like the 83-86 helmet, although i think it'd be better if the colors were flipped. '79 is the worst
