Is that a white flag that Cy is waving on that banner?
Uniforms - They are better than what we did have and best of all - BLUE IS TOTALLY GONE!!! WOOT! Cardinal and Gold Forever! Hopefully we'll play like USC instead of just looking like them...
an option couldve been a white "I" or a gold "I: and white "STATE"
thats my favorite
supposedly the gold helmets looked awesome, not sure why they didn't go with them, but don't be surprised to see them within the next couple years.
The reason why they didn't go with the gold helmets is because JP is trying to emphasize the "State" in the logo, not necessarily the "I." Of course, the solution to that would be to switch around the colors in the logo, but if you read the new visual identity pdf found on cyclones.com that's not going to happen. And as for the "let's add white to the mix" issue - just as our colors are not cardinal, gold, and blue, neither are our colors cardinal, gold and white. Yeah, the whole argument that "white can be used as trim," well, so can blue, and that was unacceptable. Personally, I'm extremely happy that the only shred of white that will be used is for the road jersey and that's it. If the colors are cardinal and gold, keep it cardinal and gold. That's it.
I also heard that JP wanted the I to be 'in the background' and the "STATE" to jump out. Personally, I like it...
The new uniforms are awesome, and I understood the pants would be just like the throwbacks with a gold flake (looks better than USC). I wish we would have used the throwback helmet too, because it's a unique look that would have distinguished us from USC a little more. I think the new logo would look better on the helmet if the cardinal inside the "I" matches the cardinal on the rest of the helmet......anyway it's a huge improvement.
