    I guess I missed that we re-signed. I thought we were due up in 2018. Hard to believe we did another contract and only doubled our previous contract. I'll never understand how we aren't a bigger deal for apparel. Big school, some success, and fans spread out over the country. I guess splitting a small state takes away the fringe that the big schools get.

    File this in the same category as Prohm being overtly religious. If it gets us better recruits then I absolutely love it regardless of how I'd feel otherwise.

    I love that we are doing a change away from USC's knockoff design. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

    My question is with the new grey uniforms...do they end up just trashing them? Will be interesting to see what they come up with. Hopefully they have more than just the coaches designing these things.

    I'd love to see either a gold or grey helmet come out this year.

    What the hell else are we supposed to talk about? The Cubs sucking again? Labron winning another championship? Boo...

    Ramble away, @t-noah

    I'm ALL IN for the increased use of the stencil logo.

    Ditch the grey stuff, especially the jerseys - can't even read the number from half way up in the stands. That fad is over.

    We do have a habit of jumping on fads about five years after they peak and 2-3 years after they are really cool anymore. We are a bunch of Iowans, after all.

    The "ketchup bottle" look was our best this past season outside the all whites. The red facemask was the best change we've made in years.

    I don't see us going too crazy on these. I'm imagining an image change similar to Oklahoma State. You can make modern, "cool" jerseys that are still sharp and clean without the gimmick.

    I actually liked the red facemask -- I loved the red/white/white of the Kansas game. I would favor that as a "permanent" change, particularly if we ditch the non-school color jerseys and pants. I just hate non-white monochromatic looks. It looks like a leotard, not a football uniform.

    No reason we should ever wear an element that is not cardinal, gold, or white. Ever. You can do enough and plenty of cool things with just those three SCHOOL colors if you want to.

    I would not say that Oklahoma State's uniforms are "clean" whatsoever, and they mix-and-match odd combinations and alternatives so often, as well.

    This is a clean, classic Oklahoma State...

    Which they do sometimes in their new set, yes...

    But you see a lot of gimmicky "sheriff" nonsense from them, too...

    Gray is not a school color of theirs, and the little "wing" stripes on their shoulders are stupid.

    I will shut up if we trend more towards the first sort, but I imagine it is probably going to be a mixture of both (at least) if not having some gimmicky base set with way too many alternatives.

    Something like Baylor or Oregon is gimmicky, but in absolutely no way can you consider Oklahoma State's stuff gimmicky. The key to a successful uniform is a clean modern look that doesn't try to do too much.

    Here was one of the old thread concepts with the stencil logo:
    (I believe this is an "amestoplease" original : )

    Haha...sorry, I think I'm out. Shot my load already and learned from my mistakes. Uniforms are kind of like religion and politics, get into trouble either way, and can't make everyone happy.

    I am thrilled w/ this new staff and what they are doing. I will be fine w/ whatever they come up with. I might not completely like it, but I'll bet it will be fine.

    BTW, my new motto when talking about, let's say, Politics, is: I'm not a member of the Democratic Party; and I'm not a member of the Republican Party; but I am a member of the Pizza Party!

    Party on everyone. :)

    Not a fan of stencil logo but might like a gold stencil for use on cardinal helmet.

    Just to try to prove I am not a complete stick in the mud (though I am)...

    I really like our current basketball uniforms and the tapered "funnel cloud" stripes on the shorts. Somebody put together a few concepts on using that same thing on our football uniforms...

    I thought that would be a nice compromise -- get away from the USC comparisons, but retain a cleaner look with a modern twist to it (such as some of the OSU combinations above), build around a cool concept related to our Cyclone origins, and build some consistency between football and basketball. I think that would be cool and likely rather unique among our peers.

    You could mix-and-match combinations, add helmet colors, and mix facemask colors from there.

    Even if not that exactly, I think involving that stripe pattern would be neat.

    Looks perfect, however they probably would never go with it because it looks great.
    Hope they at least use gold instead of yellow in whatever they have chosen
