    The 17 Worst College Football Uniform Designs, Ranked (ISU throwback is 3rd)

    We're the only throwback which seems a little unfair, there are a lot worse throwbacks out there IMO. I'm also not sure why Gizmodo is ranking football uniforms but whatever, here you go.

    So why are you wanting us to give them pageviews, exactly?

    I'm sorry but all those are awesome! This site clearly has no taste.

    Re: The 17 Worst College Football Uniform Designs, Ranked (ISU throwback is 3rd)

    Obviously some websites are different. This site has us as the second best uniforms in the league for the throwbacks.

    College Football 2013: Grades for All New Uniforms & Helmets#

    A+: Iowa State
    PREV
    47 of 48
    NEXT






    • When arch-rival Iowa visits Jake Trice Stadium on September 14th, the Cyclones will do their home stadium's namesake proud by sporting the same style of uniforms that Trice wore for ISU prior to his untimely death from injuries sustained in a 1923 game against Minnesota.
      Honoring Trice close to the 90th anniversary of his death would be enough to make these uniforms worthy of a high grade. Adding to their cache is the fact that they look really good: The vertical gold lines against the dark red jerseys as well as the gold pants are very old-timey.

    What is this new thing where people seem concerned about giving people and their sites pageviews? Seems like I have seen that often in the past few weeks.

    It's not new. Website finances are driven by page-views and ad-clicks. Every time you view a website, you are giving that site owner revenue. **** Gizmodo, I'm not given them anything when they are ripping on our beautiful throwback unis.

    I really, really like our throwbacks, particularly because of who they honor. Indiana's (right) helmet looks like a jacked up candy cane.

    How did ISU get on there but the ones Iowa wore last year didn't? Those were down right ugly. I was happy to see that an Oregon set made it, but many more could apply for Oregon. The diamond plate pattern was a bad idea.

    The Iowa throwbacks were better than the 80's Steelers' throwbacks they usually wear.

    If that website had seen our throwbacks in context compared to the original Jack Trice era jerseys then they'd have been recognized as being much better.

    I don't know, I kind of agree with the guy on having Maryland #1. Those were hideous. But Wyoming's are bad too...

    At least it has Maryland ranked properly.

    Those Notre Dame jerseys actually looking quite sharp. (Although I can't wait for the glove-trend to die).
