    Here are a couple pics of the sign on the east side of the stadium. I think they still need to put the new logo on both sides of it though.
    It looks good! I bet it looks even better at night, lit up!

    Agreed, I think that would look even better with the logos on both sides! Anyone know if that's in the works?

    I wish they would have left it black. I like the way it stands out against the concrete better than the red. Otherwise, I like it.

    I liked the Iowa State University better than the Jack Trice Stadium, the old look a lot better

    That was the old university font, this is the new cyclone font.

    Really? Well then at least it makes sense. I never heard anything about that. I still liked the old lettering better though.

    Adding color to JTS = good idea to me.

    I will never ever complain about any stadium upgrades.

    Cant wait for the 28th!!!

    too bad it took 180 gr. to make it happen. i like the old lettering, ot necessarily better than this, but since it was so much, i think the money couldve been used a little wiser.

    Looks nice! As an added bonus, the ****ters in front give it a "Historic Kinnick Stadium" look. :wink:

    I agree. I think adding the cardinal colored letters makes the stadium stand out more. Once all of the renovations are complete the stadium will look awesome!

    I think adding the logo on each side will help the coloring of the letters.

    According to this picture the I-STATE logo will be added on both sides.

    Looks great!! Love the cardinal letters...love em!

    Looks way better than the "Iowa State University" - they can get some good use out of that somewhere else on campus.

    And yes, the logos are to be added on the left and right sides.

    I agree it is better than the Iowa State University. People saying otherwise just need to get used to it or drive by it one time at night lit up.

    Looks great JP!

    I thought the old one was fine. The new one will probably grow on me, but I like the clean look without the logo so I think it's fine from that respect.

    The logo on the back of the scoreboard looks awesome when you drive down University. It just pops out at you. I wish it wasn't on a black background, but that's probably what makes it pop.
