    Chizik just made his first mistake, yellow pants?

    with a top and helmet that have virtually no yellow. I just don't understand why it is hard to match a helmet, jersey and pant. This year is sure to remind me of our all white pants with the jerseys and helmet that used to have very little white. UGLY!

    Why not wait until next year to change the uniform? It doesn't make sense and I heard the part about having to wait on the tops. Then wait for everything!

    If the change is to "yellow and cardinal," then get rid of almost all of the white on the uniforms. Look at Minnesota's uniforms and USC's and do something almost identical with a different logo on the helmet. The logo should be all yellow on a cardinal helmet with a dark facemask.

    Please do not go to ugly yellow helmets. And don't say LSU. The only reason people like LSU is because they have a winning tradition.

    All the best uniforms have the dominant color for the helmet and only try to use two colors. Classic look with two colors.

    Once again, Minnesota and USC. PLEEEAAAASE!

    Kinda tacky to only be able to change the pants.

    well no matter what happens it is not going to please everyone, the way i see it let chizik get what he wants.. i dont want to see him gone...


    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."

    I like the USC look we'll be having. Nice chance in my view. I never liked the all red...looks dark on TV and on the field to me. Just my opinion.

    Re: Chizik just made his first mistake, yellow pants?

    If switching the color of the pants our players wear from one team color to another is a mistake by our head coach, I think we're over-analyzing him a bit.

    I really couldn't care less what our players wear, as long as they win wearing it.

    It would be real swell if we could create an identity/look and stick with it.

    Nobody is picking at the colors guys. I think it just looks silly to only change the pants not the entire uniform. Looks second class or cheap doesnt it?

    Re: Chizik just made his first mistake, yellow pants?

    What did everyone think of the uniforms we wore in 2002? At the time I absolutely loved them and was very disappointed when we changed them. Watching video of us from that year, I don't think they look nearly as good, although I also don't like what we replaced them with.

    Also, I think our white on white road uniforms look very good, but gold is pretty much non-existent in those, so I'd understand a substantial change made there.

    Re: Chizik just made his first mistake, yellow pants?

    I disagree. It was too late to change anything other than the pants. The only thing that is changing is the color and they may very well go with cardinal jerseys and gold pants in '08.

    I like the idea, because it gives the staff at ISU and the fans a "trial year" to see what this combo looks like and make decisions from there.

    Second class and cheap to me would be wearing no pants at all. Then again, if they won, I wouldn't care too much.

    I like the USC look also. Thing is with us is we use too much white. We have too much accent color and it really takes away from the two main colors. LSU gets away with a yellow "gold" helmet and pants, I think we could go that route also.

    Heck as long as we win big deal. But, then again, we might as well look sharp doing it!!

    Re: Chizik just made his first mistake, yellow pants?

    Its pretty obvious we are sticking with "yellow" rather than "gold"

    A dark gold would look aweful with our bright red.

    Im excited to see what they come up with!

    Re: Chizik just made his first mistake, yellow pants?

    It'll need to be a dark gold for it to work at all, kind of like Notre Dame's. If it's yellow it'll look like crap.

    So long at we can win games I don't care if they wear pink pants (actually I guess that would go to far).
    As others have said, it will be impossible to please everyone.

    What was wrong with all red? Much better than the Ronald McDonald color scheme we're going to have.

    Red and Yellow is McDonalds, Gold and red looks like burger king, is there a difference? All I care about is no 'actual' gold (e.g. notre dame).
