    Shorts mistake

    Think this is a mistake? I stubbled upon these shorts on ebay, they have Hawkeye colors with a Cyclone logo.

    Re: Shorts mistake

    ya this was posted last week.. really sad that they messed up that badly.. also i saw this on one of the cyclone site to buy new stuff...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    How dare you talk anything possibly related to Hawkeyes here! Seriously, you should be banned just for mentioning this! This is Cyclonefanatic

    Those shorts are in Scheel's at Jordan Creek in the Iowa State section so I don't think it's a mistake.

    Re: Shorts mistake

    I think when the designer/ manufacturer sees how poorly they sell... they'll consider it a mistake.

    You know, we could ***** and moan about this every other week, or we could just not buy them and forget them altogether and the maker of the shorts will quickly learn not to put our stuff on black gear again

    The sad thing that could happen, is that the company makes the assumption that ISU gear doesn't sell and quites making anything else.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
