For over 60 years, Cy the Cardinal has been leading the charge for all Iowa State athletic teams. Because a cyclone was too difficult to depict in costume form, athletic officials had to get creative when choosing a mascot. Taking inspiration from the school’s official colors (cardinal and gold), the cardinal-like bird mascot took the university by storm when it was introduced at the 1954 homecoming pep rally. A contest was conducted to choose a name for the new mascot and was won by Mrs. Ed Ohlsen who suggested “Cy.”
Sometimes cute, sometimes fearsome, Cy has become the perfect symbol for all things Iowa State. Show your ISU pride today and grab this insanely soft tee from Garage Cotton. Whether you’re catching a little bit of “Hilton Magic” down at Hilton Coliseum or cheering your Cyclones onto another victory at Jack Trice Stadium, this tri-blend tee is the way to go.
