    We need to do the Jack Trice throwbacks for the 90th anniversary of his tragic death (10/8/23). And, we just happen to play a nationally televised home game versus Texas on October 3rd - nice timing!

    I would say either Texas or Iowa would have to be when we wear them.

    Re: White Helmets

    WHy would we have white helmets. We need to stick to our identity. Our tradition. Kids these days want consistancy, they dont want flash or "the next big thing". They watch teams like oregon in the national championship game with disgust on their faces. Saying "look at those idiots, 240 uniform combos....what the h. No way would I go there, thats why Oregon is a bottom feeder".

    Does Notre Dame have alt unis? Does Wisconsion? Does Nebraska? No they dont. They have tradition. The are building their brand on one uniform concept. Thats what we need to do. White helmets? More like leather helmets. Thats where its at. Tradition.

    I guess we are probably due for another infamous and mythical white helmet thread again. Always seems to pop up again a couple months or so before football season starts.

    Before the crowd comes here and says "but everyone ******* when ISU proposed having a white helmet!" The people wanting a white helmet want it as an alternate for a game or two. No one is saying ISU should switch to white helmets every game.

    Yes they do


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Exactly. Just wear them once or twice. Not a permanent change to the "brand" just more helmets. We have gold, cardinal and white jerseys and pants. Time to throw in the helmets!
