    "Throughout history, Iowa State has had some creative uniforms. However, dropping Cy the Cardinal from the helmets in favor of the current logo and adopting knockoff-USC jerseys (albeit with a different shoulder stripes) was a drastic step backwards."

    This is a huge fail on Nike and ISU's part. Everyone sees it but them!

    The throwback uniforms could become iconic similar to the Michigan helmets if Iowa State would stay with them. The key is to stay with them and not constantly change.

    Yeah.... but JP and Rhoads love the uniforms we have now, you know, the ones that the rest of the country laughs at continually rank as one of the worst uniforms in the conference. They love the brand and tradition of them.... even though there is no brand or tradition there to speak of.

    It's an absolute joke IMO. JP and Rhoads must be two of the most conservative guys around. And good luck ever getting some really sweet intro music in Jack Trice either. We will have Smoke On The Water for as long as Rhoads is here. Ugggghhhh. These kids going into college these days don't even know what Smoke On The Water is? That must really get them jacked up..... not. And I'm sure they're thrilled to wear the 2nd worst uniforms in the conference too, right?

    Iowa State probably has the least tradition and brand recognition of anyone in the country. So why not embrace change and mix it up?

    This reasoning has more merit than "young people like cool uniforms". We rank low on uniform reviews, we are called out as USC wanna-bes (although I've never heard that from non-ISU media), and the local AND national Trice jersey reaction was off-the charts. Let's do something not only unique to appeal to the incoming students but also represent the ultimate Iowa State brand and tradition by making this design our normal uniform.

    I'm not a football player but the player's reactions while suiting up in the throwbacks was amazing. Although none of them knew Trice and most of them don't know the state of Iowa or ISU history all that well it was clear those jerseys meant something.

    Completely agree with you. In fact, I agree with Rhoads that I don't like it when I turn on the TV and Northwestern is wearing red, white, and blue U.S. flag uniforms. That is just stupid IMO. Or wearing camouflage. That is dumb too IMO.

    And it's ironic, because if JP really wants to go with tradition, we would be true cardinal and GOLD (not yellow). The Jack Trice throwbacks are MUCH closer to the traditions of Iowa State than the colors we have now. A few years back we were smart enough to change our ketchup red color to the true cardinal and it made a huge difference. Now we need to take the next step and change the mustard yellow to true gold.

    So if JP wants to truly live by his word and go with tradition... then he would make that logical switch IMO.
