    Better than the one the AD used but I still wouldn't want to see this one either. Sorry.

    You saying that the Athletic Dept got Nike to print up that new logo on apparel that was available to buy within hours of the new logo being announced and the head of the department had nothing to do with it? I'd like to see some proof of this!

    and i dont disagree. i wanted to throw this out there for the heck of it and to illustrate that though a difficult concept to tackle, there are still better ways to execute it than the way it was carried out.

    Your mock-ups have 3 elements missing from the actual alt-logo:

    1. Contrast
    2. At least an attempt to represent realistic “motion” of a funnel cloud
    3. A bit of "flair," for lack of better description.

    I looked at your logo for a few minutes on each helmet, to find areas open to common scrutiny, if the design were chosen. Some lines may be a bit thick, interior resembles a small intestine.

    Is there a way that we can get a good reading about just how many people really hate this logo? I want data.

    If that's even somewhat true, a few players had to feel like this when the alternate logo was revealed:



    "You can't come out dressed like that — you're all 'puffed up.'"

    I believe someone postulated a logo something like this once. Reminds me of a once possible Tampa Bay Bandits logo abstraction.

    You may have different information but I know State personally and he would have an opportunity to know as well.

    I went into Cy's Locker Room and wanted to spend money on Iowa State clothes. I need a new hoodie for fall and winter. I left with nothing.

    I love Iowa State but it's amazing how they just...don't...get it. The "new" logos of the past two decades have been awful. The best ISU clothing I've seen in a long time is from American Eagle. AMERICAN EFFING EAGLE.

    Obviously one of the best logos ever conceived at Iowa State; unfortunately some old timers (probably donors) are horribly scarred by Criner and can't let it go.

    I would be fine if they pulled an Iowa Corn mea culpa and tossed the new one and went with this.

    Petition? Email JP? March on the Jacobsen Building?

    The plot thickens. We need get this figured out, because the perpetrator behind this new logo needs to get a flaming-upside-down-new-secondary-logo bag on on their porch during Halloween night...

    EDIT: I'm only joking. Please do not put flaming poo on anyone's porch on Halloween night. And only pass out celery sticks, bean sprouts, baby carrots, and apple slices to those eager little trick-or-treaters....

    Got the email from Cy's Locker Room to buy new logo merchandise.

    Three different shades of red right on the email.

    Is this typical for other schools/teams? The team color isn't consistent?

    The Burlington Mud Dawgs only have 2 shades of purple on their page.
