    Re: Column: Paul Rhoads vows to keep things old school at Iowa State

    You can stand out and still respect tradition! The Jack Trice throwbacks are a perfect example.

    Most "kids" see Iowa as a state with a bunch of corn and nothing else. We have the stand-out facilities, our coach stands out with his powerful speeches and emotion. Why not stand out on the field?

    I think it's to be different than their parents who grew up with a no-sock-and-sandal combo mentality. We never wore black socks growing up (unless with dress pants) and now it's the rage. I also see tons of socks with those vertical stripes on the back in the under-20 cohort.

    Exactly!

    “Truthfully it probably hurts me,” Rhoads admitted about his traditional ways. “The players would love that and like anything else, it’s ‘ok we did it once and that was great.’ But you’ve damaged the tradition and the trademark and the brand and all of that.”

    What tradition? What trademark? What brand?

    I can't believe people pay $16 a pair for those socks

    I agree that I love the cardinal and gold and don't think we need blue, black, grey, whatever color in our uniforms, but we could make a lot better use of the cardinal-gold-white combinations than we currently do. I do like seeing mock ups with different colors, but I'd like to stay more traditional in the color scheme, there's plenty you can do with those three colors to improve our current uniforms

    I agree with this a lot. I hope the rumors that we are getting new uniforms in 2015 are true.

    We have a uniform company in Waterloo for craps sake, it would be easy for use to have many different variations. Just look at the Cyclone Uniforms Twitter account.

    I knew Rhoads was a little too old school when he decided that Smoke on the Water should be played as the entrance song. I'm bored just thinking about that stupid song.

    To me, "standing out" while getting your ***** handed to you is not a good idea.
