    Curse of the new helmet?

    Has anyone noticed that every time we change our helmets design, we suffer a horrendous season? Here are some examples
    1983- 4/7
    1986- 6/5
    1987- 3/8
    1995- 3/8
    2003- 2/10
    2008- 2/10
    These are only a few years and I know this information is trivial, but hopefully a "seasoned" helmet will bring better success. Just thought maybe this could get a few laughs for us and help us fans shed some hope on next year. GO CYCLONES!!!

    I must be missing something. Exactly how did we change our helmet design in 2003?

    I would think with the pretty dreadful past of Iowa State football there would be a pretty good chance of failure, new helmet or old helmet!

    In 2003 we dropped the flat red color and adopted the glitter red that many schools were going to

    For a funny little thread, you sure seem to be taking things pretty seriously.

    Sorry for speaking up for the first time against you, but your annoying. Why do you feel the urge to always act like a *****. You're almost worse then a Hawk fan.

    You're in enemy territory, light hearted thread or not, most people dont care what you have to say. Me, I dont care, but thats because I take what outsiders have to say with a grain of salt.

    Enemy territory? I didnt just plant a UNI flag in the middle of Jack Trice.

    I'm not trying to be an ***. Come on over to Panthernation.com if you'd like. I just like to talk sports.

    Maybe your not annoying... Maybe I'm just sick of the success that P-UNI college is enjoying.

    Although, there have been times you have been a hair annoying pointing that out, and bashing ISU.
