The funny part is that black, silver, cardinal and gold were colors the school was considering before going with cardinal and gold. So we technically do have history with black and silver.

In some alternate reality we have looked like the Raiders this entire time and our campus is in West Des Moines or Marshalltown. Lol

No. And, the black helmets with all red uni's should be outlawed. Those are as bad as the grey/red/gold disaster they tried a couple of years ago. I think our alternate uniforms should be cardinal helmet and jersey with , wait for it,........gold pants. That would be crazy, I know.

Gold is an awful color. When you see Iowa State fans 99% of their gear is cardinal, white, or black. Never gold.
I refuse to buy any ISU apparel in black. Grey is as close as it gets.

My brother in law (a Hawk Grad) tweaked me a few years ago buying a black ISU t-shirt. NEEDLESS TO SAY, it is worn under sweatshirts.

Iowa wouldn't wear cardinal. Ohio State wouldn't wear blue, Oklahoma wouldn't wear orange.
