    Helmet design

    A few of you on here have asked about my avatar, so here's the file. Just an amateur Photoshop job. I am no expert, so don't ask me to create some new version with chrome and sparkles because I don't have the skills.

    Re: Helmet design

    I like it. We need something like this to get away from our current design that is boring and lacks impact.

    I don't pay much attention to jerseys or helmets, but it seems like most schools either A) keep the same uniform forever (Alabama, Texas, etc.), or B) change it all the damned time (Oregon, Baylor, etc.). We, on the other hand, seem to come up with something different every 4-5 years.

    I don't give a **** what we do as long as it gets recruits, keeps the players happy, and makes people say "that's Iowa State" when they see us on TV.

    Too bad most of them say "that's USC" before they figure it out.

    I don't agree we need to change ours but that is pretty sweet

    Well thats your opinion. Obviously our current helmet is perfectly fine with the players, coaches, and AD.

    Re: Helmet design

    Noticed that some teams put logos of the back of the helmet. How about incorporting the standard "I" on the back tied into the cyclone of the side?

    Re: Helmet design

    Some dude who says he is a hack at photoshop can come up with a helmet that puts the current one bought for how much? and puts it to shame. Love that helmet.

    Plus, there's no way the AD is going to re-introduce a logo from a (*ahem*) stormy era in ISU football history.

    The current uniform design loosely mimics the Bruce years ... a gold helmet with stripes is the only thing lacking (and a good share of CF fan base, at least, hates the yellow idea. Although I'm not among them).

    Re: Helmet design

    Would the "Gold" be a metallic finish similar to what Rutgers, Notre Dame, Oregon, etc. have going on? If so, I'm all in.

    Re: Helmet design

    I'm ok with our helmets but I think they would be sharper with a stripe or two, something like the 49ers.

    Re: Helmet design

    FWIW, I heard from a friend that the football team is getting new uniforms designed for next year. Anybody hear anything about this too?
