Iowa State returns to Cardinal and Gold

Iowa State athletic announced the new look for the 2008 campaign. The story is here

It is back to cardinal and gold uniforms. This is great. Back to the colors I was familiar with when I was growing up in the Iowa State community. Check out the home uniform here and away uniform version 1 and version 2. I am not sure about the logo, “I” with State across it. The AD did not offer many choices here for fans to vote on, but I understand their decisions based on the FAQ page.

I guess going to the letter logo was a good idea. The “I” does remind me of the original Cy logo which had the gold “I” on its chest. I do like the fact that they listened to the fans and abandoned the white helmet. That was not a very good initial decision. Great job to those fans who suggested a more appropriate helmet color, cardinal.

I hope they continue to use the current Cy and original Cy logos appear on clothing apparel. I would not like to see the university lose those rights.
