    I know everyone hates the poop emoji bugle logo but ESPN still uses it. A lot. So it's still in our logo catalog apparently.

    My guess is some black and cardinal combo like black helmet with cardinal jersey and black pants. Maybe the thing they're up to is chrome cardinal facemask on black helmet with cardinal stencil I-State.

    Yeah and he hated those. Toledo was under a UA contract and the school wanted to do something new/different when they played on weeknights on espn or whatever.

    notice after his first season at ISU the gold has never appeared again unless it’s a secondary color? No gold tops or pants

    Look at what Arizona State and Minnesota are doing with their gold. It's dumb if we've completely ditched it. That said, bring back the "sunflower" gold of the 70s.

    Sorry, I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything here...

    Maybe a walking Cy or something on the one side would surprise me (and maybe it's just the cartoonish look of the gopher on the left side of the helmet) but I think the helmets look silly.

    Or maybe you're talking more like this:

    That's not a terrible look IMO. Just can't seem to find a gold jersey option I really like...

    Give me that (with our cardinal and sunflower gold) just once time per year, and I'd be appeased. Obviously it won't become our primary look, in the current landscape.

    I won't doubt your statement, since I have no proof to the contrary.

    I've inquired about this in previous uniform threads, and can't recall responses I got: When has Campbell specifically expressed his distaste for gold (as a main element, not a trim element)? Our latest design set suggests he'd prefer to downplay gold aspect, I just don't know how adamant he is about it.

    I agree that home jerseys with gold are more difficult, but these road unis are sharp.

    Again, gold/yellow pants only work with a gold/yellow helmet option.

    Pretty unreal that ISU does NOT have that as an option as "GOLD" is one of our school colors. It is a fantastic look.

    G/C/G should be the main home set, not C/C/C (which is a "Fresno Statey - small time") look. I never liked a Cardinal helmet with gold pants either. Doesn't work.

    A gold/yellow chrome helmet would look outstanding. Needs to be an option.

    I believe you based on the evidence of his gear and the team's uniforms, but how do you know "he hated those"?!?

    Not many people look good wearing a gold/yellow shirt. I can understand why there are fewer gold uniform options than in the past. Gold makes for an excellent accent color. But as many have mentioned on here, I would not mind some type of gold on the helmet.

    I'm with Campbell on this one (if true)... I don't like the gold unless it's an accent color. Those Gophers uni's are awful. The cartoon character on the side is just plain dumb. All gold uniforms are just not cool in football.

    That being said, IF we were to wear the gold pants, go with the cardinal helmets and cardinal jerseys... it works for USC... it would work for ISU.

    A combo I would like to see: On the road... We wear black helmets, white jerseys, black pants... that would be Bad AZZZ.

    The worst look ever: Men's basketball wearing all gold. I really despise that.

    The Lakers used to always wear gold uniforms at home. Do they still do that? (I am not an NBA fan.) It seemed to me that the Lakers wore the gold well.

    Reminder that it could always be worse. How is red anywhere close to TCU colors?

    I would like TCU's uniforms better if the neon crimson or whatever that color is was used a little bit less. The Toronto Raptors colors are really popular right now.
