    College Football’s Top 10 Ugliest Helmets

    I'm not sure I agree with this. I think we can find a few that are worse than ours.

    Personally I think the current helmet is better than most (maybe all) in the past 36 years I have seen. There have been some pretty horrific helmets in the past.

    Re: College Football’s Top 10 Ugliest Helmets

    Unfortunately the other ugly helmets have a long history (sorry notre dame you are boring)

    The point about the bird in a blender was raised when we changed to I-State as was the fact that there are no fewer than 3 other schools that can be I-State. It was a good change as everyone needlessly hated on the bird for being too different (we ended up on several of these lists back then) I say we just complete what every hawk says we already tried to do and put a Trojan-esque picture of Cy on our helmets.

    Problem solved, can't hate on that for being ugly without calling USC ugly as well... and that wont happen

    This is our best logo by far; too bad it's associated with a low point in our program:

    Re: College Football’s Top 10 Ugliest Helmets

    '76-'78 were the best of all, in my opinion. The Johnny Majors helmets of the early 70's were pretty cool too, what with the alternate colors.

    One problem I have with this list is that ISU always appeared on these lists with the last helmet design. We just can't please people.

    And that is one more thing I like about CPR. He discontinued the long standing tradition of a new coach bringing a new helmet with him, and just stuck with our current design.

    The helmets aren't bad at all and I don't mind them. That being said, I think we can do much better.

    ISU's helmets are pretty bad.

    The helmets ISU wore in the throwback game a few years ago were the best and they should have kept them.

    Boise State or Oregon State should be on that list.

    Re: College Football’s Top 10 Ugliest Helmets

    I have mixed feelings about ours. I like the kind of brand we have for football, but I'd love to somehow throw a tornado of some sort out there. We are the Cyclones after all. I'd love to see a tornado make a comeback.

    Not against our current helmets though.

    At this point just stick to a design. If you are successful you can put a woman's reproductive organs on your helmet and people will come to accept it.
