    We need new UNI's

    Yes, we won, everything is awesome today....

    But, our uni's are awful. Red and yellow stripes don't work. Look at TCU's uni's, solid colors and they look bad ***. I don't know if we can do solid colors with our cardinal and gold but we've got to be able to put some sort of uni together that at least looks good. Throw some money at Nike and let them work their magic.

    Some may not agree that having a bad *** uniform matters but I would argue that a good looking uniform helps with the overall image of the program and thus helps recruiting, fan support, revenue from Cyclone merchandise sales, etc.

    As long as they don't get something like the alternate uniforms that Nebraska and Wisconsin used last week. Maybe some chrome-cardinal helmets?

    Those NU/UW unis were Adidas and they were awful. What happened to TCU's Purple chromes?

    Re: We need new UNI's

    UNI's are fine I think. I would love to see some chrome red helmets

    Heard they ditched them this week after the QB got the DUI. I usually go for traditional stuff, but the chrome helmets Oregon uses are sweet! That's a modern trend that does look really good.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    Given ISU's uniform history they should probably wear these for the next 100 years with zero changes.

    It should have been, but he might be serious.

    Re: We need new UNI's

    For the record, I am serious and I'm watching the replay as Lenz scored his second TD and the McDonalds Arch's on his shoulders are staring at me.

    If that's the best we can do style wise, very sad.

    Maybe you're just hungry. If you ate something, you'd be lovin' it.

    I was hoping CPR would adjust something after the Chiz left, but in the end it's his call. I don't like the gold stripes either, but they're better than Mac's unis. You see the Northwestern uniforms today? Sad. We look a lot better than that.

    Dont know, but I figured that they ditched them today because it was cloudy and there would not be any "shine."
