    Hadn't really thought about how I felt about it until this post.
    Yes, this is what should have happened.

    Oh you mean I should take some random person's post as gospel that a couple of his friends liked it then disliked it? Or is there a bunch more examples of this?

    So because people reportedly didn't agree with you and automatically hate it the moment they laid eyes on it they're 1. liars or 2. terrible ISU fans. Got it.

    Just admit it - you will never be happy with anything that's not the god-awful Criner logo.

    Thats BS. It was ugly as fk when it came out and it still is. Even my 17 year old who had his buddies over last night commented on how freaking bad it was. Did they even do any market research?

    So because you and your daughter and several people in this thread hated it, everyone hated it. Got it.

    I have no idea what point you're trying to prove. You said many people liked it initially,but started hating it bc others told them to. I asked for some examples and you got more upset. Do you work for the firm that designed this? I'm sorry for hurting your feelings.

    I'm 1000000% in favor of alt-unis and a secondary logo. I just assumed it wouldn't suck.

    This new logo makes me think we will have a good opportunity to buy some high quality, cheap jerseys in the near future.

    This logo sucks without outside group opinion. It is terrible. The logo on shirts looks worse. Whoever said it looks good on shirts is also wrong. It looks stupid! Even after sleeping on it and being open minded...still hate it.

    Not digging what you saw last night? Hold onto your britches. When it comes to wacky uniform combinations that often times work and sometimes will not, Iowa State football is only a toddler.

    Just wait until puberty hits next season.

    I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    If this secondary logo is an indication of the direction that we are going to go as a football program and athletics program, things are going to get ugly fast.

    Teenage years never go well. Can we just skip to adulthood?

    Who told you to hate it? It was getting such positive reviews and then everybody decided to be cool and hate it. Bunch of posers!

    this is 100% correct. thats why car companies, sports teams, architecture firms, new podcasts, new tv shows etc... utilize social media blasts. They post the new item and then immediately have tons of social media accounts like it/comment positively on it/ etc. they either hire a firm to do it or own the accounts themselves. The idea is if most of the very first reviews are positive (which they were when the new logo was sent out and received rave reviews from most national sports accounts) they will overwhelm the 5-10 trolls that post the same joke over and over thus winning over the thoughtless demographic that are followers. ISU should have utilized this. Instead someone said something about a chip and the people in this thread piled on even though that is as ridiculous as the hawk logo looks like fred flintstone.

    this is an excellent example why all of you armchair designers have no idea what youre talking about. Similar to the iowa liscense plate disaster recently where everyone freaked out on the designer until she came out and said "heres why I had to do it the way I did it". Unless you are going to make helmets with no "holes" in them, you dont have free reign to do whatever you want. Anyone (except for the guy that uses ms paint to show helmet designs apparently) can slap a "logo" on a helmet in photo editiing. A designer has to figure out how to fit it properly on an actual real life helmet that is not just an internet photo. Figure out how to make it work on several different colors of apparel as well as make it useful in graphic design.
