    Perfect! :D

    Could you add a little purple accent to some of those? It's common knowledge that a cardinal shoot s purple blood from its eye on occasion. ;);)

    And gold! The TCU game unis looked great (and I am an old fart), but the helmet should have a cardinal "I" and gold "State" just so we know which team is Iowa State! I'm coming around, but let's at least keep a little cardinal and gold in there for the win-win! :)

    My prediction is white-white-cardinal, but you might have a different idea.

    Regardless of the particulars; yellow (gold) hats, white tops, and cardinal pants looks outstanding. And from the various concepts everybody has posted here it's pretty obvious to me that the I-state logo would look better on a yellow helmet than a cardinal one.

    Yeah, the "red on red" of the I-State logo on a red lid is... meh.

    It looks better on black and white and gold, though the gold outline on the "I" washes out.

    I agree with @weR138 and @Sigmapolis about contrast of the I-State logo and helmet color. It works super-well on white, doesn't stand out well against the cardinal background, gold background with the gold trim of the "I" portion would require an adjustment to be more slightly more effective.

    Solutions:

    - Narrow white outline on the I-State logo - would help on both the gold and red helmets.

    - Utilize a gold updated (no Cyclone script) Criner-era tornado logo on the red helmets.

    Generally agree with you, but I know the official stance...

    -- The home uniforms have no white on them as of now (and I think that is a mistake, but it is the way it is). That white outline would clash with everything else.

    -- The monstrosity Bugle logo is the official nickname logo... Not the 80s one.

    This is the simplest and best solution, imo, if the AD is somehow married to the cardinal helmets. My preference is going back to yellow with the cardinal tornado but the other way is great too.

    I still can't believe they went and paid someone to create the upside poop emoji while this tornado logo was out there already in our possession.
