    I just read this post (above) and wondered if the new thing will be to call Iowa State, I State? I know our logo is I State so do we have to start calling ourselves this now? I'm sure it will take a while to adjust to the new saying becasue I have always said Iowa State to people when the ask who I pull for (if there aren't from around Ames) but I usually say ISU to everyone else...

    And everyone I have talked to always calls Kansas State K State no matter where they are...

    I need to start now becasue the I State doesn't roll off the tounge yet...And yeah this is a pointless thread but i'm bored...:chatterbox:

    I still prefer Iowa State to I-State... but I'll probally eventually get lazy and start to use the short cut. Which is sad, becasue I'm saving all of one syllabul..

    When speaking, always Iowa State. When typing it is starting to become I-State more and more. I like it alot better than ISU.

    I State just doesn't sound right. It will always be Iowa State or ISU to me. Mrs. yCy

    There is no I in team, but now we have an I in I State. I like saying I State now. But at games etc. I still prefer Cyclones or 'Clones.:yes:

    I've said "I-A-State" before ... I think because the university email addresses ended in that and it sort of slipped in.

    I-State is going to become popular as more apparel comes out
