    Like the cardinal/cardinal/gold. Not so much the cardinal/white/white... need a different color helmet. Same with cardinal/gold/cardinal...

    Yellow/dark yellow helmets with red ISU stencil been seen before? Just saw it on a photo a recruit posted.

    Not that I know of!

    link?

    I'm definitely a yellow/gold helmet fan; if they go with the dark yellow, I'd prefer a matte helmet. Not shiny Packers cheese.

    Here is the Tweet from a recruit that got an offer from Iowa State.

    I'd rather they sell winning football, but I get it. Stuff like this is for the players and recruits, not the crusty old fanbase. Whatever it takes, I suppose.

    Love it. Yes please.

    I'd bet this is the original source:

    @CYCLNST8

    So it is fictional?

    Love the Ren and Stimpy avatar, by the way.

    I would love if they went with this concept.

    I've been assuming for quite a while that we'll be adding a "gold", really yellow, helmet this season for sure. Did anyone watch the video with Lazard and Peavy walking through the facilities and when they went into the equipment room there was a box sitting on a table about the exact size that would fit over a helmet, but the equipment guys wouldn't let them peak under it?

    It's obvious we're getting a new helmet, and I was assuming it would be "gold", since gray isn't even one of our colors yet. Why would we add a gray helmet before a "gold" one, that would be stupid.

    I do like the gray jerseys and pants, but not sold on the gray helmet yet. Just like I'm not sold on CMC always wearing black shirts and gray pants this offseason it seems. JP wouldn't allow him to add black to our colors I hope. CMC sure likes that black ISU polo though.

    South Park did it.

    Also, the correct answer to all this is the Trice throwback colors, but with gold numbers instead of white. The "amestoplease" variant earlier looks awesome.

    And flip in the tornado funnel logo on occassion, it's awesome. If I ever got a tattoo...

    Actually I do go far. California, Colorado, Texas, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Utah, New Mexico as well as overseas all in the last year...shall I go on? Never had an issue with people recognizing I-State, and have found people very knowledgable about who we are and what conference we are in. They know our basketball team and the success we've had, they are aware of our lack of success in football, and quite often they engage in a meaningful discussion about both. Sorry if your experience has been different.

    That is a winner. That is also the best logo we've ever had. It should be on everything.

    Y'know, if they insist on using gray, if our grays look like this, I think it'd have a good look. I think the current gray is too dark, it looks too close to black. If the idea is to make it look like a "storm cloud," I understand that, but it doesn't work as well if the "concept" trumps the visual. A muted gray with cardinal & gold accents could "pop." I think the charcoal swallows the bright colors.
