    Black is overused, & the gray fad is so 2000-late. School colors only, please.

    Ha ha! No kids yet and I weigh a buck fifty, but you're probably right about some other posters.

    Why do I have to be nice to Kinnick-section-whatever??

    I really think that the next "fad" is going to be simple and plain.

    I really think the MSU ones look cool or the ND ones with just the logo on the sleeves.

    Gold helmet with double-stripe to match shoulder-piping and pants stripes would vary it enough to go from "almost identical" to "somewhat similar."

    Re: New Uniforms?

    i think what we have now is towards the bottom of the conference if not dead last. I enjoyed our throw backs and I miss our cardinal pants when playing away games.

    Anyway, back to your original post. It really is a stretch for ISU to go with black unis. Personally, I think most black unis look pretty weak anyway. Either way, we would be arguing over a personal preference. If we went with non-traditional uniform colors, you might be able to talk be into a dark gray...

    I agree that dark grey could be a good look. I hope everyone realizes I'm simply talking about an alternate uniform combination. I'm not talking about a permanent switch for a home or away jersey. Plenty of teams utilize all black or all grey combos for one or two games of the season. I'm willing to bet if ISU did it then a ton of fans would think they are bad *****. I'm sure players would as well. They get excited about wearing unique jerseys. It's the way it is.

    I feel the same way about Iowa. I love the traditional Iowa uniforms, and I don't want them to go anywhere. However, I don't see why Kirk can't bend a little bit and allow a unique uniform for a couple games of the season. On Black Out games let them wear an all black combination. All that would require is some black pants and maybe a new helmet concept. If it's something the players enjoy, and you can sell it to recruits then I don't get why you wouldn't consider it.

    Re: New Uniforms?

    1. Whoever says we don't look like USC makes me laugh. Looking at you, CyDude16.

    2. Our colors are cardinal and gold. No more of this mustard yellow stuff. The gold like the SF 49ers would be nice.

    3. Our Cyclone mascot is unique to sports unlike the typical Bulldogs, Wildcats, etc. We should have unique uniforms that can exploit the uniqueness of being the Cyclones.

    4. I'm not a big fan of the grey facemasks.

    5. A change is needed if AD JP wants to build the ISU brand. Watching the NFL draft this year I thought USC was ISU multiple times.

    I agree. The concept was cool but overall didn't really like the throwbacks for the Iowa game.

    That was my issue when the rebrand happened. The inital mock ups showed a dark gold (sort of like the throwback pants ISU wore this past season). That is what I was hoping ISU would go with, but then they rolled out the yellow pants and that dream died.

    Evidently several analysts thuoght that ISU was USC as well.
