    The last to wear #40 was Mark Currie from Odebolt in 2007-08. Don't know why they discontinued it, but I always thought it was cool.

    Did anybody really expect Chris to vote against the faux-hawk?

    Not sure you could really top the guy from Hangin' With Mr. Cooper wearing the #40.

    It would be a great tradition to carry forward. Really surprised it stopped.

    Re: CF Mailbag: 12-2 Edition

    Was it discontinued, or did we not have any Iowa kids to wear #40? I know that was part of the tribute, that it had to be a player born in Iowa.

    I also believe that CFH said he wanted to get that going again in an interview around the time he was hired.

    I thought Morgan Wheat wore it first or am I remembering incorrectly?

    You are correct. Wheat wore it first than Hoiberg and Meyer after that I believe.

    I remember reading somewhere that they discontinued the #40 thing and replaced it with someone wearing Brian Peterson's number at some point. Not sure what his number was or if that tradition has continued.
