    Retired jerseys

    I believe that we need to write Jamie and demand that the retired jerseys be placed back in the rafters. The new banners with the name and number just don't cut it as far as I'm concerned.

    I agree I liked the Jerseys. Also it is nice to see what our jerseys used to look like.

    Re: Retired jerseys

    I agree. You gotta have the jersey. There's something about seeing the number on the Cyclone jersey from the era in which they played.

    Re: Retired jerseys

    These look a lot better than the hodgepodge that was up there before.

    If it's good enough for Kansas....

    I couldn't believe they did that. I saw that during the OSU game. I thought that was something historic and shouldn't be touched.

    Re: Retired jerseys

    The jerseys weren't even close to accurate, for one. Looked like the type of stuff I drew when I was a kid.

    I agree they look better but do you demolish a historic building because you can build one that looks better? Where is the respect for history?

    Re: Retired jerseys

    Just my opinion, i like the new banners better.

    Gives a more polished, refined, uniform look (no pun intended )
