    Uniform colors

    Ok - before anyone jumps down my throat about this, I want to say I love the new fb unis. Love them.

    But I've noticed on www.cyclones.com lately that the other sports uniforms (volleyball & soccer most notably) are a much darker, almost maroon color.

    Has anyone attended these events and can speak to the color? I know that computer settings and such affect the color rendering. But on the website this evening is a pic of a soccer player and a picture next to it of the fb unis. And they are drastically different colors. I noticed this earlier in the week with a volleyball uniform as well. Has me a little concerned about the bball unis.

    Re: Uniform colors

    As Theshadow indicates, there are many things that affect color. Our previous school colors were affected by different conditions such as materials, light and substrates but no one paid attention as much we all do today with the new look. Most inks and dyes are metameric...for every color… and computer monitors are a whole different story.i.e.There has always been a difference in inks and dyes, just with the recent changes people are being more critical and noticing variances that have always been there...

    I would guess that most if not all of our jerseys for all sports will be very close to the current new colors… The variance will be no greater than in the past, just perhaps noticed more by the present changes because people are aware of the change…

    That volleyball picture of the uniform against the floor of Hilton is pretty drastic.

    I've noticed that too. The color looks much more like A&M than an ISU cardinal.

    Re: Uniform colors

    You also have to realize colors appear different when they are next to other colors. The volleyball uniforms have a lot of white next to the cardinal making it look darker.
