    Actually it's not a better question. It's a separate question.

    I've already covered this but I'll do it again just for you;

    The lack of touches for Montgomery is more important than a logo
    Park being an interception throwing machine is more important than a logo
    The bad offensive play calling is more important than a logo

    Of all the things that make a winning program the logo is probably last.

    There are threads for the more important things and then there is this thread. No one is suggesting that a logo can translate to Ws.

    The logo sucks and we want to discuss it. There are smart, talented people here who've made some really good designs and the people in this thread like that sort of thing.

    Finally, we're not alone in having logo discussions. I sat next to a UT season ticket holder from Houston at the game. He told me about the upheaval when UT went to a metallic burnt orange Longhorn decal. People went nuts. They also went crazy when UT rolled out all black unis which have since been relegated to the practice squad.

    To your point about Pollard "bungles stuff like this" - well, in this case, he more "bugled" it up.

    A while back @Draf came up w/ this design.

    Add: OK, enough 'dislikes'. I just threw it out there. I didn't say I did or didn't like it myself. I think most of us would love to see the updated Orr Cyclone make a return.

    Every fanbase cares about this stuff.

    You can care about this stuff and care about winning. How do some of you not understand that? I guess you haven't seen the incessant ******** about the playcalling?

    The Kagavi piece above is a spectacular read. Lots to think about here.

    I nomally can't tell a thing when it comes to graphic design. As evidence I'm kinda meh between the old Orr look and the new one.

    However, that Kagavi grey helmet with the lighting and two shaded logo. Sweet.

    Just got an email from the Alumni Association about the Cyclone Central Tailgate for Kansas game and it notes 25% off all new logo merchandise. So it begins!

    So, I'll be honest, I think this new logo sucks. However, I hated I State at first and now I'm fine with it. I don't think either are particularly compelling and think we've had way better logos in the past, from the old school Orr tornado that Kagavi has deftly put on a helmet to the Walking Cy.

    I have always wondered how they can get the logos (no matter which ones) on the helmets straight. That has to be a hard job

    This pic just shows so clearly what is wrong with the new logo. You can't have cardinal in your logo against a cardinal helmet. It's SO much better for just a gold logo on a cardinal helmet, and a cardinal logo on a gold or white hemet.

    Oh, and we care so much about logos, uniforms, Sweet Caroline, etc, because our football team sucks every year.... pretty simple folks. If we were really good, nobody would care about this stuff.

    Oh really? Does Alabama care about their logo or uniforms?

    Or do you honestly think ISU hasn't sucked at football?

    Are you not a basketball fan? We're been on a decent run and it hasn't stopped people from complaining about things.

    It looks better this way. Maybe we can just go with this moving forward? Somebody want to mock that up on a helmet?
