    He obviously didn't do much research for that: a) he's using a old logo, b) he admits he has no idea why there is a cardinal in it. I know it is confusing, but our mascot is the cardinal and we are called the cyclones.:cry:

    It would have been better if he knew we had new logos, but eh, what's the old saying, "Any press.." It's in fun, I can laugh at myself.

    Looks like somebody had fun ridiculing the new logo in the comments at the bottom. Looks like a Hawk fan based on the other blog he's commented on.

    Watch out, he’s got a towel!

    I have no idea what that logo is, but it's hilarious.

    That blurb about ISU is actually pretty funny.

    But, of course, no mention about why the Alabama Crimson Tide has an elephant in the logo.

    That's a silly enough piece that I know not to take it seriously. Not exactly investigative journalism, but he certainly had a fun time analyzing logos. Thanks for the link.

    What fiasco?

    I think darkening the logo with the new shade and removing the ISU in front of it made the logo even cooler.

    Why is the Stanford Cardinal (tree) not on that list. It real doesn't bother me that ISU is on the list. At one point I didn't know why we had Cy, so I don't expect this person to know why.

    He definitely favors the NBA / minor league baseball caliber logos over "traditional college" tyoe logos. Since I can't stand the type he likes it means nothing to me.

    Great. Another blog from a whiney, sarcastic little hack that can finally make his mommy proud now that he has something 'published' on the internets. He's so darn whimsical and clever. Now he should just go away.

    Nice work, Joel. Take your congratulatory kiss on the cheek from Aunt Bonnie and be proud.

    what is up with america's obsession of Top (insert number here) lists? everytime you fire up msn hotmail... "top 10 things not to do on a first date" fox sports "top 20 ugliest cheerleaders in the AHL" SI.com "Top 10 NAIA assistant athletic directors" ESPN "top 10 best dressed quaterbacks of the AFC" etc.. etc... ok, I'm exaggerating a bit, but it's on the level of bad reality tv and commericals on AM talk radio...

    Did anyone growing up (and even now) think it was odd that the Hawkeye's logo was not just an ornithographic eyeball?

    Ok, maybe it was just me.

    I left a nasty comment. Partly because I hate Tennessee.

    Whats with the Cardinal? Guess what we used to be called before it was the Cyclones?

    Why do we still use a Cardinal for a mascot? You stuff a Cyclone....
