    "I-State"???

    When watching Sports Sound Off (as well as hearing it from a few others), I've heard Murph refer to the Clones as "I - State" in reference to the new logo. He brought it up with JP last night and JP didn't take a stand one way or the other.

    What are thoughts about this? I love the new logo, colors, etc, but I don't like being called I-State. I don't think JP was going for a litteral translation of the new logo. Just look at other logos around the country. Locals don't call Okie State "O-State" do they??

    If that's what it takes for us to be nationally recognized, I don't have a problem with it.

    No logo or not, we're still a program in search of an identity. Win, and we'll have one. Continue losing and we'll just try something else in a few years.

    We are going to continually be called I-State by people and anybody who thought otherwise was naive.

    I thought during the press-releases last year regarding the new logo that they stated that ISU was NOT to be referred to as I-State. It's just a logo, not a name.

    To do that is just dumb .... of course, it is Sound Off. Par for the course.

    I have noticed that a few times too. At first is bugged me a little but I think it has a nice ring to it and it makes us stand out. I-State for life.

    Re: "I-State"???

    JP basically said that the fans and the media will decide how I-State is used. If I-State becomes our identity, so be it. If not, it doesn't matter. We will always continue to be Iowa State University.

    Beats the Iowa State "Hawkeyes" that seems to come out of some national sports talking head's mouth at least once or twice a year.

    Murphy is the only one I've heard call ISU "I - State". Let me guess, he tried to be funny too, but wasn't.

    It seems to work for K-State (Kansas State).

    Right. It's all about branding and identity. We could do whatever we want with naming and logos - but if we don't win - no one will know who we are.

    It's no different than big business that do well, or those that don't. The ones that are quite profitable and well known, you rarely see them make name/logo changes. You can easily spot a struggling business by them frequently changing their logo, marketing look/feel, etc.

    Oklahoma State has an "O-State" logo, yet, you don't hear them being referred to as such.

    I have seen an Oklahoma state shirt with O-State on it before., it may have been from Eskimo Joe's.

    Good point. Although they've been called K-State for quite some time. Also makes me think of NC State, but neither have much to do with the respective logos.
