Don't see any Illinois State, Indiana State, Idaho State ...
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the "I-State" logo, but for those that don't like it either and are using the whole Illinois State, Indiana State, Idaho State reasoning are throwing a pretty weak argument out there.
Whenever I get this question, it gives me an opportunity to give them a brief history of Iowa State athletics.
Agree 100% and I love telling the story. People usually respond with how cool it is. I was meerly pointing out that as long as I can remember, people don't recognize our logo. I have been asked if I was a Louisville Cardinal fan, a Redbird fan, etc, for a long time. Didn't matter what logo we have had. I have never had anyone ask me if I State stood for Illinois or Idaho.
Simple fact is no one will ever know unless we win on a regular basis. Once we do that, we have a very recognizable and simple logo that is easy to decipher.
