    Question What happens to the I State logo?

    Could this logo's association to Chizik be similar to Coach Criner's old tornado with Iowa State on top. If you recall, Criner was head coach who was fired after NCAA program violations. His "Criner Swirl" logo was all but forgotten due to the bad association. Granted, Coach Chizik is leaving on his own (selfish) volition but will "I State" turn into the logo for losers? Will it be viewed not as "I State" but "I ****" here so I'm leaving for greener pastures? Or will it have the staying power to endure? There was a lot of success associated with Cy. "I State" not so much.

    I hope it stays. I think it's the best logo we have ever had.

    New logo has nothing to do with Chizik IMO.

    Pollard had the largest role of getting our traditional colors back/the new logo in.

    it will be here for quite awhile.

    Re: What happens to the I State logo?

    As I said in the uniform thread, fans simply won't support (both via acceptance and buying) a new logo and uniform. At least not for a while.

    But if we want to look like a bunch of floundering buffoons - please - by all means, change the thing again...

    The Fans voted it in....remember.

    We've barely been into 1 full year with the logo. Pretty sure it is staying for the long haul.

    Ha if you think people are mad now, tell them we are switching logos again. Not going to happen. we will keep the new look and continue generating new revenue from it. Next.

    The logo needs to stay and stay forever. No more changing the logo!

    I agree - however, it needs a touch of white accent stripes as highlights; it would bring out the letters better. Also we need some accent stripes on our helmets.

    Re: What happens to the I State logo?

    Can't say it's my favorite logo, but I do hope it stays. Changing it now would just alienate all the fans who just bought new gear, or those that are still made that we changed it this time.


    Not to mention making us look like complete idiots


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
