    A simple solution to the Black collar might be to make it with 2-tone black. I generally liked the black collar and the idea of it, though the straight all-black end-result we saw this year perhaps wasn't the best manifestation.

    Change it to a 2-tone black, make it like or very similar to the existing design on the White and Black jerseys, all of a sudden it looks more appealing. It would still be black like I think Coach wants (and I think that is one of the things also making this uniform set different and unique; so I am in favor of keeping the collar black). Yet it would fit into and match the overall design better instead of sticking out like a sore thumb like it kind of does now.

    Here is a pic of 3 more black collar mods right next to the black uniform, for comparison. Why didn't they just make the red jersey collar like the black jersey one to begin with?

    A few more black collar mod examples, and the effect of the socks! Sorry, no gold helmet as I do not think we are getting one. I could be wrong.

    Adding just a touch of the "other" color would at least fully coordinate the uniforms. I think the current unis are the best I've seen in my 40 years as a fan. But just a couple additional accents would really help.

    Thinking outside the box what about a Pop Warner tribute in some way / Iowa Agricultural College throw back. Don't go full ATM with it with those ugly faux leather helmets but feel like you could do something creative with our history. Yes I know we did Jack Trice, love me some Jack Trice, but there are other interesting historical figures/periods in our history that are cool.

    With the gold helmet!!!

    Yes, if they would consider it, I would love the gold helmet (and pant/jersey for full set). Let's say they can only go with 4 helmets, we could give up the cardinal chrome helmet for a gold one. I agree we don't really need 2 red helmets.

    IMO, you just cannot justify the black collar on the red jersey at all.

    90% of the time when we wear the red jersey we aren't wearing any other black elements at all, so we have a black collar and no other black anywhere. That looks just plain horrible.

    Like someone else said, we just need an all cardinal option, all gold option, all white option, and all black option (if people want to keep it?). Pretty simple.

    And IMO, I think it would look sharp to add some white elements into the cardinal jersey too. For example, I really like the new wrestling singlet on the left with the white added....

    I did a slight revision for your gold-helmet option from this set, adding a gold-pants option and used your cardinal/gold collar to replace the black collar.

    One thing about the gold helmet, is you could use alternate logos for it, just the outline block outline red I-State logo in Red that we have used on it. Or others, Orr cyclone, the current curved block cyclones only with the colors reversed, or versions of these:

    I thought the same thing because I saw our players wearing black cleats, socks, leggings, arm bands, long sleeve shirts, and braces/supports, but clonedude said we didn't. I thought elements must have been something different.

    The black collar is representative of the black collar of a cardinal, a tribute to the greatest mascot in the nation, Cy the Cardinal.

    I can deal with the black collar. I love the new Uni's just wish we had a gold option.

    Thanks for your contribution(s). I do not dislike this at all. I do think the coach wants to keep the black collar though, and I am OK w/ that.

    I may make something up w/ a collar like this, on Red jersey. I do know that mixing colors, like adding white, red or yellow to the black collar just doesn't look good.

    I've always liked the black collar more than most of you though. I'm sticking w/ black (2-tone best) collar, as I think it looks good and lends itself well to certain combinations.

    I was neutral on the collar before I found out it's supposed to be like a cardinal's collar. Now, I'm leaning towards liking it.
