    ISU Gets A New Helmet After All...

    Looks like ISU is going to introduce a new helmet for a couple games this fall.

    What does everyone think?

    So they slap on a glossy decal?

    If it cuts glare and helps our guys, then I'm all for it. However, the matte finish looks dull to me.

    I like the matte finish, I don't like the way the decal looks on it.

    That's my issue. Glossy decal on matte finish...yuck. I like the concept, but execution leaves something to desire.

    Ugh, more red logo on red helmet which are almost impossible to match. Do you think this will be used at a home game? I just don't see it working that great with cardinal jerseys.

    I hope that sticker was just for this picture and they get some kind of matte finish for the real thing. Jeez we are terrible at uniforms.

    I have to laugh when Rhoads says, 'I am a traditionalist'. Yes, because ISU's brand has such tradition? We'd be 100 times better off embracing the new uniform cultures out there rather then sticking to our 'traditional' USC knock-offs.

    I like it....i know a lot of people want the uniforms changed up a lot, but I've always really thought it looks cool when schools just put matte on the helmets..I like that look better myself.

    We really are (football anyway). Isn't there a design school at ISU?

    Personally I would prefer the whole helmet as the matte cardinal finish with no logo at all.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Keep that red matte look and add a matte golden "I" for the decal.

    I like the matte but that decal on it looks awful.

    Matte finish with a cheap glossy sticker. Looks lazy and dumb to me.
