    Iowa uni's

    Am I the only person who liked them? The brassy gold looked really good. BTW, I LOVE our 'classic' all white away's . . . .

    I personally do not like arm pit stains on my shirts. Cleanliness is next to godliness!

    Yeah.. I didn't like theirs at all. I do agree though I like our white on white look. I do love the white on cardinal too however.

    Re: Iowa uni's

    I didn't think they looked that good. Maybe it was the helmets that they tried to make look like ND helmets. The unis were supposed to be from the 20's or something. Didn't they weather leather helmets back then?

    I also thought it was a little strange that they chose this weekend to wear them. I mean, it's Hayden Fry weekend, or whatever. He's the guy who came up with the Tiger Hawk emblem supposedly, so you wear throw-back unis? Seemed to be a strange move to make. Why not wait until next weekend against UNI?


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Re: Iowa uni's

    I liked the hawk uniforms. I'd like to see the clones dressed out in gold instead of yellow sometime. I've always liked the gold helmet look---ND, Navy, BC.

    I can't stand the whitey-tighties with a red helmet...looks out of balance. Perhaps it would be better with a white helmet?

    I am going to assume that the Iowa's athletic department is going to sell those throwback jerseys in action, and I am sure that they were hoping Iowa was going to beat ISU in order to drive up the prices for those throwbacks in an auction.

    I think that thread is already up at HN. Might have been up before the game.

    They weren't as bad as I was expecting. I've certainly seen worse.

    I actually didn't mind them. It was nice to see Iowa wear their actual school colors (black and old gold) for once.

    I thought it was fun to play a crappy Notre Dame team.

    Bummer for Iowa they could not pull out their "Hayden Fry-Flyover-Throwback-Superbowl" game. But at least they don't put any emphasis on ISU.

    Given that our throwback game with Iowa was another ugly game, maybe both schools ought to ban throwbacks. At least we are 2-0 in recent throwback uni games against the hoks.
