    Re: Iowa helmet stickers

    I think they denote which players have had prison sentences in the last year.

    "America Needs Farmers"

    As an agronomist, a farm kid, and someone who wants to farms in the near future, I can not tell you how mad that sticker makes me. The University of Iowa telling the world that we need farmers.... yeah and Iowa State University of Science and Technology will ******* provide them you smug bastards.

    The stickers are for Ed Thomas, FFF '09" decals (Faith, Family and Football). some High school and college teams in Iowa wear them.

    Re: Iowa helmet stickers

    I believe that its a tribute to the Parkersburg coach. I heard about it on the radio.

    Re: Iowa helmet stickers

    UNI wore the FFF (Ed Thomas sticker).

    Iowa had that stupid ANF sticker that Fry put on the helmets back in the late 80s/early 90s.

    Re: Iowa helmet stickers

    I'm pretty sure that had the A.N.F sticker as well on the helmet.

    They brought it back 2 or 3 years ago. Whether or not they have it this year, I don't know.

    They still have no business putting an ANF sticker on their helmets.

    Re: Iowa helmet stickers

    The last couple of years, it was tucked away on the back of the helmet.

    Today, it was in its old place -- crown of the helmet, right-hand side. Just smaller than before because the NCAA cracked down on the maximum size of helmet decals.

    Really?

    I think it's a tribute to the heartland at a time when most people don't even know or care where we are.

    If this offends you, you've got some serious issues.

    Rather than being offended that Iowa has them, why not be offended that we don't?

    Ummm, what?

    It was a little marketing campaign brought up by ol' prune face back in the mid 80's to cash in on the public hype created by Willie Nelson and Farm Aid.

    It's a tribute to the American farmer. To try to read something more into it is homerism at its finest.

    Just because the Hawks did it, people poo-poo it.

    The overall sentiment of the sticker is nothing short of perfect and the fact that it isn't embraced by everyone shows what little people many of us are.

    Look past the TigerHawk next to it and appreciate it for what it is.

    They don't have to put it on there and most probably wouldn't notice if they didn't, yet they still do. For this, I applaud them.
