With the debut of the Jack Trice throwbacks mere days away, I got to thinking about what throwbacks ISU could do next. Maybe ISU will never be a flashy school, which is ok, but we can certainly honor past teams and players with throwbacks. For those of you who don't know, Polly Wallace was a beast of a man that was ISU's first consensus all-american in 1920. Remember, players went both ways at that time--he played center on offense/defense, but I suspect his defensive position was more like a middle linebacker as he was everywhere. He may have been the first great linebacker at ISU--a position that didn't exist at the time. Also, the 1920 team may have been the first ISU team to feature a painted design on the helmets--which I used as inspiration for this throwback helmet concept that I posted on Twitter: View attachment 21842 Here's a look at the helmets in action--definitely an unique look for ISU: View attachment 21843 What do you think?
