    Want to see our new home unis?

    Turn on the USC game. We'll look very similar. Differences, up and down stripes on jerseys that match the pants, Iowa State on the jerseys and I State logo on helmet. Otherwise, almost identical down to the grey facemasks and stripes on pants. I love the look!

    Hopefully they'll be high quality as well, instead of the high school ones we have now.

    Yes, were it not for USC paying their players, they would have the exact same talent ast ISU does.

    Re: Want to see our new home unis?

    Maybe we can trick some of USC's commitments into coming to ISU instead. I'm sure one of the big selling points for USC was the cool uniforms.

    Hayden Fry copied the Steelers uniforms exactly when he was coach. The Steelers were the dominate team in the NFL then, and he wanted that image for Iowa. You could argue we are using the same strategy.

    Oh no, their helmets don't match their Jersey's perfectly! Looks like a lot of people are going to hate this look.

    Re: Want to see our new home unis?

    Has anyone seen or heard anything about basketball uni changes? I would assume they'll be the darker "cardinal" color next year too. I'd sure like to see what (if any) the plan is.

    Re: Want to see our new home unis?

    USC has a cartoonish mascot on their helmet instead of block USC letters. They better change that, as nobody will ever be able to identify them without USC stamped on their helmets...

    i get your sarcasm. But, anyone that thinks we are in the same league with USC and should just be "known" is crazy. We are Iowa State and fact is we need a simple dumb logo to market not some crazy cartoon people don't understand.

    And also, from a post above...I don't think we are copying USC so much as going back to colors and a look from the late '70's when we where fairly successful. I think it is either coincedence that USC looks similar or THEY copied our 1977 uniforms.

    I think the logo on the helmet doesn't look as good and might be difficult to see from a distance. If the logo was traced with some white, it would be much better. If you look at the logo, it looks good with a white background.

    Re: Want to see our new home unis?

    The USC jerseys seem to have a more maroonish tint, where ours will be more red/cardinal shade. Design may be similar but I dont think too many people will be getting USC jerseys by mistake for their b-days this year. I dont think they look that similar in color scheme.

    I'm pretty sure this has been brought up before, but Pete Carroll was an assistant coach at ISU around the time that we were using that color scheme. So, maybe they actually DID steal it from us.
