    Thowback Uniform Options

    I just read that Iowa will be doing a "throwback" jersey for their game against Penn State, and they look pretty cool, which got me wondering A) whether we've ever done that, and B) if we did, what would we wear. Here are photos of the poll options:

    1950s


    Late 80s


    Early 90s


    Mid 90s


    Late 90s/early 2000s


    I'm not sure which I'd prefer. Early 90s look cool and would be fitting given that our coach played in them, the late 80s were also pretty memorable and I like how they say "Cyclones" as opposed to Iowa State, and the mid 90s were my favorite teams ever and it would be cool to have a gold uniform. Tough call, but I think I'll go with early 90s.

    I would go with the early 90s also.

    Personally I love the mid-90's look. That's when I started watching ISU basketball, so I guess it has a special spot in my heart.

    I like the late 80s the most, but I'm not a huge fan of basketball throwbacks.

    Re: Thowback Uniform Options

    I think the 2008 ones would be the best! Any of the ones under McDermott work.

    I forgot about that. I guess the ones we are wearing now were new in McDermott's last year. We are due for new ones next year.

    Really we were due for new ones this year. Not sure what happened. Can't wait to get rid of the old Michigan St knock-offs, and hopefully we end up with something original instead of just wearing another team's unis in our colors. Also hope the next set comes with a gold option.

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    I didn't realize we'd cycled through several uniforms under McDermott until I just googled Craig Brackins...and I don't even remember the one shown below; what's the story on that; was it one-time thing for the Big 12 tourney?

    God we've had some pretty shitass uniforms. Of any of those, I would choose early '90...with the short shorts.

    Re: Thowback Uniform Options

    I always thought the late 90's early 2000's were sweet. I don't know why, but I did and still do.

    We should rock the gold uniforms from the Cato, Willoughby, Kenny Pratt era

    I remember those. That's a ripoff of a Syracuse set from many years ago. I think we only wore them for one season. I prefer those to the set we have right now.
