    Does the media have to say I-State

    I was just watching Sound Off and Andy asked if he could say Iowa State and Keith told him I-State. Has JP asked the media to refer to us as I-State?

    Yeah, I noticed that too...I hope they don't have to say that whenever talking about ISU. That is just stupid.

    I'd rather have them say "The I-State" or tISU

    No, but they'll do it just to be smart-arses.

    "Where you goin for college?"

    Re: Does the media have to say I-State

    I didn't even realize Soundoff was on tonight, I thought it was still closing ceremonies. I missed the first few minutes of it, but when I finally realized it was on, it was about the funniest thing I'd ever seen! Andy's rant on the state fair, Andy's impersonation of Bela, and of course all of the clips from the past 600 episodes, I don't think I've ever laughed harder in my life! And did I mention B-Ross rules because he's an ISU fan!

    seriously - to me I-State does NOT roll off the tongue and I won't be using it unless referring to the logo. I don't care if it becomes the "popular" thing to do - it just sounds incredibly dopey...

    Re: Does the media have to say I-State

    This is a conversation that this family should have had a long time ago.

    "...and when we hit that line we'll hit it hard, ev'ry yard, for I-State."

    Mmmmmm........ no.

    I like the guy but if he pulls that I'm chucking my beverage onto the field.

    Re: Does the media have to say I-State

    This was one of my biggest criticisms of the new logo... I hope the national media does not refer to us as I-State. If they do, they'll probably make the same blunders they always have and call us the "I-State Hawkeyes..." Damn that hurt to actually type out...

    Re: Does the media have to say I-State

    I bet it would really roll off the tougue if the Media refered to us as
    ''Defending Big 12 Champions I-State takes the field Thursday to shoot some rabbits." The bad thing is that jersey's and logos look a lot better if you win. It will be interesting if people make fun of our Jersey this year. Because you won't see that same person poking fun at USC.

    Just win....

    Re: Does the media have to say I-State

    Pretty sure Pollard said that we wouldn't start using the term i-state when the logo was announced. That said, the logo certainly does push the term out there. I've thought about the possibility of using it, but no matter how much I try, I just don't like the sound of it. I'd rather stick with ISU.

    I hope not. Remember how rediculous it was when TCU asked the media to NOT refer to them as Texas Christian University? Hopefully Jamie and Company won't require the same thing.
