    Wow! You've really opened my eyes! Thank you so much for your insight. You know what? I now love the logo!

    the old logo without the script in your avi looks much more like the poop emoji than the new alt. logo. difference is, the poop emoji didnt exsist when it came out. The same jokes would have been made if we used it. And the same jokes will be made when we use it, which we will. I cant wait for you to hate it too.

    Not trying to convince you of anything, just stating facts.

    I haven't said anything about the logo looking like a chip or poop nor have those jokes influenced my opinion. I hated the logo before the game. Hopefully they use the old logo at some point, but I won't hold my breath.

    Are you saying the graphic designer was thinking about the holes on the helmet when he designed our secondary logo?

    I'm a little confused as to why they decided to use this side of the helmet on all of the releases before the game. The logo in this is opposite of what it is on all of the shirts and stuff.

    This one below is the way it appears on the gear. I think it looks slightly better, and would have been a better photo to release the logo with. Not that it would have much or any impact on people's opinions though.

    youre questioning on whether the logo fits on the helmet and how much of it is obstructed by the holes as a design factor? Yes I am saying it is a factor.

    youre 100% correct, in the initial photo it appears as though the cyclone is moving backwards. Looks a million times better in the 2nd photo.

    I don't hate the logo, but not a fan of it either. But we played like crap, so retire the thing!

    A few days later, I still don't like it but have decided it is better than no Tornado logo. I like Cy as a mascot but want nothing to do with a cartoon bird logo. I'd much much prefer the updated 80's tornado and will still seek out the old logo on gear. Not great, better than nothing. That's where I am at.

    I'm not a designer and couldn't be one (other than roads, parking lots, and utility systems) but I have eyes.

    It's ugly on it's own, but what really is bad about it is that it has both cardinal and gold in it. Why? Having cardinal in your logo, on top of a cardinal helmet is just awful. Can you imagine Iowa's tigerhawk logo having both yellow and black in it, on top of a black helmet? It would even be uglier than it is currently.

    If we're going to have a tornado on our cardinal helmet, it should be an all gold tornado. This is pretty simple design stuff here. And if we had a gold helmet (which is ridiculous that we don't), then the tornado should be cardinal. On the white helmet you'd probably go with the cardinal logo, although you could use the gold one if you wanted, but that would look pretty bad.

    This was just messed up beyond belief from the get go. Does anyone still know if we had some kind of focus group for this? I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of dollars we spent on this complete embarrassing garbage. I suppose it's too much to just ditch it and start over now most likely.

    We went from one game (Akron) wearing a new nice clean stenciled sharp logo, to the next game (Texas) wearing a busy, cluttered, ugly multi colored piece of garbage. Only ISU.

    Day 4.....No apology from our Athletic Department about this logo. I'm filing a Freedom of Information Act request to see how much was spent on this (including internal staff time) and who knew what when. This logo is not inclusive and contributes to a culture of Hate and intolerance that should require a public denunciation by anyone who is anti-fascist. Never Forget.

    Agree here.

    @ChrisMWilliams - you missed the mark on your Friday article. We all understand the impact of uniforms/logos/etc. can have on recruiting, and we already know this is a path our football staff wants to go down. Even if we’re 6 years late to the party (i.e. OSU was using gray in 2011 and it was REALLY cool). What actually matters though is that this new attempt a secondary tornado mark, while appreciated by many, was such poor execution. The logo just sucks, period. It looks stupid. It looks cartoonish it looks cheesy. I’m embarrassed and upset about it, because it was a complete missed opportunity, yet again. I hope the athletic department is listening and scraps this logo. Hold on to your britches? Huh? Are you saying more terrible logos are coming?

    CW interview with Pollard talks about the terrible logo. Starts about 12:00 in. Pollard basically says screw the fans, he only cares about three groups - the players, football program, and vendors. It was kept a secret so it would be a surprise for the players, so I doubt they had a chance to get feedback to how awful it looked before they rolled it out.

    Stupid lefty-leaning, libtard college influence. Of course they released the left-facing helmet.

    17 pages of critiquing the logo. Guess ******** about the coaches and team isn’t enough.
