Redbird Uniforms

There is not a whole lot to talk about at this point of the year and frankly, I am tired of the St X discussion. I saw the Bears released their new alternate Orange Jerseys today. I kind of like them but I will freely admit I love the Bears1940's throwback jerseys. What about the Redbirds? I don't s...

Re: WOAH!

But I'd hope that our players would have enough sense that if they were up 50 in the 4th quarter and they broke through for an 80 yard run with 2 min left, they would stop on the 5 and take a knee. That is a classy move. Just perspective I guess but I would not consider that a classy move. If I was...

Re: WOAH!

I understand the playoff implications but at the end of the day the Redbirds need to just play the games and win. I would not take any team for granted and I don't expect Coach Spack will either. This is the first game of the season for a fairly young team and while on paper ISU should win...it will...

Re: WOAH!

Competition is a good thing! Welcome to the new QB and the best of luck to all of the QBs on the roster. I am certain you will all get a fair shot at the starting job even though Kolbe has a leg up with two years as the starter behind him. The coaching staff will pick the player that gives the team ...

Re: Turf Updates

It looks really nice so far I think. White lettering in the red endzones would stand out more than black but they could do black with white outlines if they were getting really creative. I love the alternating green. Nice update to Hancock! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Re: Uniforms

Speaking of Walmart, I do have to give them kudos. I was in the Walmart just off Veterans for the first time in years. Many big, bold ISU flags hanging overhead down the main aisles. Very nicely done. Nice they are displaying the ISU colors but I still despise Walmart. 175 checkout stations and no ...

Thanks but that is the same Walmart jersey they sell at the official ISU Redbird web store.

Re: Uniforms

A lot of the purchasing jerseys concerns goes back to the university making money off a players likeness. "Oh, I'm going to get No. 25, for Robinson." Though I love jerseys and would happily buy a legit replica, I understand that ISU doesn't want that likeness issue to be so overt. Other universiti...

Re: Uniforms

This is more a college thing for recruiting I guess. Outside of the Throwback uniforms you see the NFL players wear now and then I don't recall the pros changing helmets even though I think just about all of them have alternate jerseys (like the Bears Orange this season). I don't see the Birds havin...

Re: Turf Updates

I would not mind the light and dark green alternating patches of the field. That could look kind of cool depending on how it is done. Black or Red end zones does not matter to me but something besides all green in the end zone, please! The uniforms could use some updates. I personally like the white...

Re: Turf Updates

This does not have anything to do with the Hancock turf (Unless they are planning a color other than green!) but it was a very interesting article about how Boise State tries to protect its stranglehold on blue fields and I guess in their opinion...every color but green! https://www.nytimes.com/2016...

Re: Turf Updates

That Reggie head would look good in my basement. I wonder if Larry would sell it to me.🤔 Years ago when the Bears tore up the turf at Soldier Field and put in the natural grass they passed out pieces of turf through a promotion deal with Shell Gas stations. I still have my piece of turf from Soldie...

Re: Turf Updates

You all didn't seriously think the field was white, did you? After EWU and BSU went kinda crazy with field colors, the NCAA mandated that all fields be of a "natural color" going forward, I believe. This excludes endzones and center field logos, of course, but expect the field to remain green, but ...

Re: Turf Updates

Prefer natural grass.....although expensive and likely not coming back for a long time. I hope the turf plays as safe as it can and we are not cutting corners in terms of making health and safety a priority. Along those lines, I wonder if they still use those little black rubber pellets when instal...

Re: Spring game on Saturday....what will you be looking for the most?

The Pantagraph article about the spring game. Spack comments on the passing game and that it will improve through the summer and into the fall. Kolbe is the starter for now. No real surprise there. 3 way battle for backup QB. Running game looks solid. Quite a number of players being held out with in...
