    Cheerleaders

    Obviously this isn't a huge deal but I specifically remember some people complaining about the color of our cheerleaders' uniforms and the fact that they were very different from the uniform color of our football jerseys last year.

    I saw that the cheerleaders wore white outfits on Thursday, did they do that last year? And was the trim on their outfits the same color as last year (maroon-ish), or was it closer to the color of our football team's jerseys?

    Sorry if this somehow ticks somebody off, I'm just kind of curious.

    Re: Cheerleaders

    I went to the A&M game last year and thought the dance squad was A&M's and was about to go deck someone because I thought A&M's dance squad was performing on our side of the field before the game


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

    Yes, I remember them matching much more with A&M than with ISU.

    Re: Cheerleaders

    You do know that the school doesn’t pay for the cheerleaders uniforms; they have to foot the bill themselves. That’s straight from a cheerleader on the squad. Doesn’t seem right if we expect so much but provide so little.

    You never wondered why they are always selling calendars and t-shirts?

    same thing is true with the band, and they had the old logo on one side of the overlay, that they now cant flip over to... and they also arent on the new colors yet (and im betting, wont be for some time without a good sized investment)

    I think they are working on it, but it'll still be a couple of years. Those uniforms are a couple hundred dollars a piece. Not cheap to change on the whims of the athletic department.

    oh, i know. i was in the band a few years ago.. id love to see some new uniforms.. get some new colors and also a more 'modern' uniform look. (and actually, probably should make the logo a smaller element, maybe something on the shoulders, since that seems to change every 5 years around here) Just expensive when you add up the cost across 300-350 people.
