    Yeah, this is lame. Change for change's sake. Matte for matte's sake.

    The bottom one is freaking amazing. It's so simple. I don't understand why we can't do something like that. I like that helmet even better than our normal one. I really wish we'd do more with that old tornado logo

    Never liked the "I State" logo much less the USC look alike uni's. But this helmet just looks like a brown bag lunch.

    Change the decal along with it... make the logo part of the helmet, not a sticker, and I am in. otherwise, its a weak attempt at being cool.

    Re: ISU Get A New Helmet After All...

    Doing something for the sake of being able to say we did it isn't working in our favor here. If you're going to go to the time of getting matte helmets, do something other than stick crappy stickers on it that completely ruin the look. While I'm not big on all the helmet/uniform trends, if you're going to do it, at least do something that looks better than a D3 High School would have.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Like the matte finish, don't like the delivery with the current decals. Love the block I in Kagavi's first picture, but I'm pretty sure that violates our own logo rules. Can't have the I without the STATE.

    Actually - I'm not sure it is.

    http://www.cyclones.com//pdf1/91754.pdf

    Now - I hate it. I'll agree with you there, if that's what you're saying. But I don't think it's dead.

    Edit: And isn't an iteration of that what is in the MBB uniforms this past season?

    I think that's outdated and has been replaced with this.

    Doesn't explain the back of the jersey thing, though...

    I am just going to chuckle and tell you that you need to check out cyclones.com a little more closely.

    Re: ISU Get A New Helmet After All...

    Is it just me, or does the "matte" look a lot more like dusty rose than anything remotely cardinal?




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?
