    Things that make you go hmmmm on Twitter. According to CF's very own Jared Stansbury in two tweets:

    "Campbell said he thinks the program's uniforms will change in totality shortly. Not sure if it will be complete this year, but coming." (Tweet)

    " 'I can tell you I think our image will change entirely here shortly.' - Campbell" (Tweet)​

    Alex Halsted also said in three linked tweets:

    "Matt Campbell says in time Iowa State will change their uniform identity. Whether that's this year he isn't sure due to Nike contracts." (Tweet)

    "Even if not in total this fall, Campbell said there could be some other changes." (Tweet)

    "My guess is mostly a uniform overhaul. Not sure they'll be changing the logo or anything." (Tweet)
    Key things noticed in the past year:

    True gold color being used in Twitter hype videos.

    Increased usage of stencil/outline I-STATE logo versus the beveled version.

    Retro 1980s Cyclone logo (from Johnny Orr's era!) used as helmet sticker.
    Looking forward to seeing some new ideas and hopefully a Jack Trice tribute or two ...

    I'm down. But I don't see why we still wouldn't keep the current ones around for more options/combinations

    Agree with making the gold standard. It's frustrating to go somewhere like Scheel's and there are 5 shades of yellow/gold in the ISU section

    Would you be kind enough to link to the gold color tweets you're referring to and also some of the other hints?

    Gimmicky nonsense, non-school colors, few or tenuous references to our uniform history, mono-chromatic "ketchup bottle" looks, overly-busy uniform designs, and "Tequila sunrise" stuff we will look back on in twenty years and think "what were we thinking" when clean and classic designs reassert themselves like they did in baseball and basketball.

    Bracing myself.

    I am hurt! What will I ever do w/ myself?
    Seriously, I have made a point to remain quiet from here on, when it comes to uniforms. Whether I can do it or not remains to be seen.
    Uniforms have been an interest of mine, I'll definitely admit, a bit overdone, yes, but who can cast the first stone?
    Reality is, that this staff will decide what it wants, and I'm OK with that. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

    I agree.
    About the time we get the new look that is in now, everyone else will be back to the traditional classic uniforms.

    Why can't we have classic with modern alts? Even the most conservative sport (baseball) has teams with 4+ uniforms.

    Get over it. We have no tradition and we have no identity in the national scope. When you don't have tradition to sell, you sell change.

    Sounds like a ticket to sucking and looking ugly.
