    I noticed that, too. The white pants were OK but I don't understand going away from the main look twice in a row.

    It worked against UCONN, they figured they'd try it again :wink:

    I guess it is a matter of opinion. I like white way better than the colored pants.

    I am wondering this now as well. Will be interesting to see which it is for Mizzou.

    I've always liked how "cardinal" sounds. Depending on the pronunciation I suppose. Some radio personalities make everything sound bad.

    CPR made it sound like the reason they got the white pants in the first place was because the players really wanted them. So I'm assuming the players think they look the best and they get the final say in which ones to wear.

    Really hope ISU wears the red pants this weekend. White is cool as an alternate, but keep red as the primary.

    totally agree. Only for a once in a while alternate.

    We beat Texas and Nebby in those. In the white's only UConn? Cardinal needs to come back now.

    Hope in the Missourah game we go back to Cardinal.

    We also lost to UNLV and a bad Baylor team in those pants. Perhaps we should lose them forever... :SLEEP:

    The players' opinion on this matters a hell of a lot more to me than us peon fans, so if the players like them and want to wear them, then the team should do so.

    I vote for all white. A cool, classic look that differentiates us from usc. i'm a big fan of the all white uni's and keep the cardinal pants as an option.

    The players like it...recruits like it. Pierre Aka retweeted me last week when I said that we were wearing the white pants again!

    I don't disagree, but USC always wears their gold pants, so really, the red differentiates us as much as the white. In the end, what the players want is what should be worn. Personally, I'd rather see us mix the combos up a little more.

    Agreed. As much as recruits may like the all-white, they'd like to see more combos as well. Now that we have gold, red, and white versions of both our jersey and our pants, I'd like to see some mixing and matching. And of course, a white helmet wouldn't hurt either...

    Red should definitely be a primary color for the pants.
    Maybe one or two games a year, ISU could sport the "all-white" look including helmets. That would be cool.

    Wore the gold pants against UNLV. I remember hearing something about Chizik wanting the gold because of the heat in Vegas - even though it was a night game and cardinal probably wouldn't hold in that much more heat anyway. That's probably why I remember we wore gold pants because its such a ridiculous reason.

    Mix & match is OK, sparingly ... as much as I'm not huge on the all-white, I'd prefer using a white helmet so it's all-out. Or all-in.
