    I like it more that I would have expected I would. If that sentence makes sense.

    It looks fine — but it's Ohio State with gold trim.

    Re: GRAY UNIFORMS!! (WBB)

    While our colors looks good on the gray, I don't go for these changes, some of which are very exotic. I prefer sticking to tradition. Seems like the more successful schools stick with tradition. You don't build tradition by frequently changing uniform colors and styles - STICK TO SCHOOL COLORS.

    Certainly don't have to worry about a gray uniform being "exotic" then. And while many successful schools stick with their traditional uniforms, it doesn't directly correlate to their success.

    I love the grays, hope the men's team gets these eventually (though the golds are waaaay better). In today's day and age, recruits love alternates. I like to blame Oregon.

    I feel like they just cleaned out a fireplace and haven't washed their clothes yet.

    Those are totally B.A.

    Of course grey isn't a school color. Neither is white. But it is as neutral as neutral can be and makes our true colors stand out, even moreso than white IMO.

    Re: GRAY UNIFORMS!! (WBB)

    I just don't understand the fascination with gray. It's a depressing, dingy color. Also, I don't agree that ISU's colors stand out better on gray than white. I think it is just the opposite.

    Wonder how Hallie feels about this being a Design major. I'd think the old-school, loose gray sweats would be better with textured effect? Sort of like this:

    White is not once mentioned as a school color for Iowa State. Silver, however, is about as traditional as it gets for Iowa State.
