    Sounds like the 1959 'Dirty Thirty' team will be recognized at the Iowa game this weekend on the 'Golden Anniversary' of their season.

    While I think it is admirable what they accomplished with a limited roster and injuries, I guess it was a reality check for me that our football achievements over the years must be pretty sparse that we celebrate a team that had a record of 7-3 and no bowl appearance. :huh:

    Dirty Thirty video

    You gotta go to Cyclones.com and view the Dirty Thirty video (narrated by the great Lindsey Nelson). It's free!

    It would be great if the team would wear the same colored uniforms and helmets that the Dirty 30 did.
