    Center Court Logo

    I just wanted to start a thread on ISU's center court logo. I for one really like the new "I-State" logo. I think it is real sharp and traditional looking.....should be the main logo forever. I also have always wanted to see an outline of the state of Iowa at midcourt too....(and put the new I-State logo in the middle of it.) I also think that people outside of the state would identify the "I-State" mark better with the outline of the state in it.

    **Did anyone see the logo for the Cyclone Tailgate tour last summer? That was a cool logo....had the I-State mark in a Yellow outline of the state of Iowa. That was a neat logo.

    It doesn't have to be HUGE as well. Nowaday's most schools have large mid-court logos.... like KU's.....just too big....looks ridiculus.

    I mention this because I really like Missouri's center-court logo....with the state boardering their dumb tiger...but non-the-less it looks cool. Also, Texas' center logo is neat. Indiana's is pretty classic....this is what I would like at the center for Hilton.

    Also, my favorite "old-school" court was when Johnny was coaching and Freddy was our Mayor. You know, with the two walking cy's on each side of the court....with a simple ISU logo in the middle.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Center Court Logo

    I hate to say it, but I don't really think that adding the outline of the state of Iowa will add any recognition to people watching the games from outside the state. Very few people outside the midwest know where Iowa is, what shape it looks like, or anything specific enough to differentiate it from Idaho or Ohio.

    I happen to think that adding the outline of the state would look kind of garish. I'd rather it stay the way it is.

    I agree. The state of iowa doesnt have much marketability to it.

    I've always thought it would be cool to put a small outline of the state on players helmets or jersey if they were from the state.

    Re: Center Court Logo

    I have to agree on this one. I think having the state outline would be a good idea for a few reasons, the first being more state recognition. Another would be in response to those people that say "Iowa is the Hawkeye State, don't you like being an Iowan? How can you dislike the Hawks?"

    As much as I hate the Hawks, this is always a valid point for me. I really do like the state of Iowa, and I think I-State embracing Iowa by including the state outline in the logo would be a step toward more recognition, even locally. How many people do you know that live in the state of Iowa and are Hawk fans by default? Simply because, well, they live in the 'Hawkeye State'. I know they're just ignorant, but let's give them all a chance to cheer for the good guys!

    Agreed. Well said.

    Does anyone have that Cyclone Tailgate Tour logo? I can't find it anywhere.....could give us all a good look at the I-State logo in an outlined state of Iowa.

    Re: Center Court Logo

    i'm sorry, but adding the state outline would look ridiculous. The logo on the floor looks great as is. Why do people always insist on fixing things that aren't broken?

    and yes everything is bigger in texas and that floor looks awful.

    I agree with this. The only thing I would change is the yellow 3 point line. I think that it's difficult to see on TV.

    Perhaps change the yellow line to blue

    Re: Center Court Logo



    Here is Missouri's. Now it looks good with the outline. I just want something very simple like this for the I-State Logo..... (the I-State logo looks giant on our floor now....looks o.k.....but having the state there would enhance the logo even more.)

    I would not want this done on the F-ball field. I think the Football field looks great the way it is. (Missouri has the tiger logo only too.....no state outline.) This thread is strictly for basketball.

    I see the point here too. Nothing's broke, the floor looks great as is. However, I wouldn't be upset with the state outline thrown in and associated with ISU athletics from time to time.

    Re: Center Court Logo

    Or we make the state of Iowa outline really big and have it double as an out of bounds line?
