    Is the old Cy mascot making a comeback?

    My wife bought me a Cyclone polo shirt with the old Cy Mascot on the shirt from Scheel's for our anniversary, my question is are we going back to the old mascot, on our clothing, or staying with new version? She told me that Scheel's had allot of shirts with the old Cy on it. I really wish that the athletic department could just stick with one, and go back to our original colors.

    I love the Old School style CY walking tshirts. I hate the new ones.

    It's just a marketing strategy. Old-school, retro, or older logo versions always stay popular when they are still available for sale. This is the reason schools do throwbacks games, or things like that. It makes them money because the public wants the nostalgic look and feel when they can get it. This is why businesses like Dogtown off of Lincoln are successful.

    I love the old chicken cy with the big shoes. But it is soooo 70s, it would never be stylish enough for you kids now adays with your hip shoes and complex records...

    Re: Is the old Cy mascot making a comeback?

    I spoke with a store manager in Ames a couple of years ago, and she said they pretty much can't give away clothing with the new logo, but anything with the old logos fly out the door. The current logo is unbalanced and too busy, it just doesn't look right on a lot of clothing.

    My 17 yar old son loves the "old school" Cy. I ilve East of mCedar Rapids and the last time I as in AMes I hit most of the larger selections of Cyclone clothing. I was amazed how much of the old logo was available.

    I actually like the logo we have now. I do have several shirts with the old Cy on them too.

    I just bought a hat about a month ago with the old Cy logo. I think it is great and historic. It seems like it carries more meaning than new logo.

    I too like our current logo. Old one ain't bad, but ... it's a walking bird. At least the new one has a tornado involved :-)

    I guess we can all tell what logo my son likes, he will not take this hat off some days.

    Iowa State is also making a big retro push towards retailers due to the 150th anniversary. You can walk into University Bookstore and Dogtown and find a lot of older logos including some "Iowa State College" designs.
