I have never been a big fan of our uniforms since we switched to the "I-State" logo, though I do love that we got rid of the blue and incorporated more cardinal and gold in our color schemes, but I thought our uniforms looked great today. I don't know what it is, but something was making them stand out. Maybe it was the redness of the helmet against the gray sky.
Nothing wrong with our uniforms!
I really like the matte helmets that some teams have now. I wish we'd do something like that. Our UNI's aren't the greatest I've ever seen, but IMO they are 10x better than anything we've ever had.
I never realized there were so many teenage girls posting on this site until someone starts a uniform thread.
I think that one simple thing we could do to make them look better is to put a stripe down the middle of our helmets. That's just my opinion.
Our main problem, and always will be, is that we are "cyclones" and not some kind of animal or something? That might sound silly, but it's true. The only other team I can think of that is like us might be the Miami "Hurricanes". But they choose not to put a "hurricane" on their helmets either.
Check any list of ugliest uniforms in college football and ISU is on it. And as for the teenage girl comment, if you don't think uniforms at some level influence an overall perception of your team and thus influence recruiting and fan support, you are a fool. Why do you think these schools are doing all of these unique designs? It's not for the fashion show, it's to raise the visibility of their programs.
I don't know what you actually want to do with our uniforms - any combination that Nike could or would come out for us would end up in a top 10 ugly list.
Agreed....don't mess with 'em.
Not to mention these "top 10 ugly" lists usually come from sites like Bleacher Report or similar. If you actually care what Bleacher Report has to say about anything then you spend too much time on the internet.
I also don't get the love for Oregon's abstract art experiment gone bad. I really think they are at the point of seeing how ugly a combination they can make. Just because there is a certain style, doesn't mean they have any taste. It's like they give monkeys finger paint every week and let them design them.
Our uniforms are simple and sharp. Absolutely perfect compared to some of the garbage McCarney's teams rolled out in.
