Iowa's Throwback Game of 2010

When Iowa takes the field in late September at Kinnick Stadium against the Ball State Cardinals, don't be surprised to see a different look to the Hawkeyes as they emerge from the Southwest tunnel. The first time since the 2004 season opener against Kent State the Hawkeyes will participate in a "throwback" game, this to the 1958 season which resulted in the 1959 Rose Bowl.

Pictured above is the helmet of 1958 alongside the current Hawkeye model. No decals will be placed upon the bright gold helmet of the '50s. In front is the actual game uniform of Bernie Wyatt.
Currently there are no plans by Ball State to participate in the throwback era as Kent State did six years ago. Equipment manager, Greg Morris said the players are excited to honor the team of the 50s and participate in the event.
UPDATE: The Helmets will have a black stripe down the middle with numbers on both sides. A certain equipment manager was pulling someone's leg.

Love it!!! Look forward to see the unis. Too bad they aren't putting the black stripe down the middle and black numbers on the side like the '58 uniforms had. Regardless, glad they are honoring that team.

That's great! I've been wanting to see the throwback unis from 1958 for several years now.

However....since the helmets are not correct, it is not a true throwback.

Why...why...WHY not do the helmets right? Who made that stupid decision? There is still time....FIX IT!!!!

I'm sure they'll add the decals. Not that difficult.

Are there plans to sell off the uniforms like they did the first time?

I can say for sure that I like the equipment for Football. But I think htat Rubik has its things because they almost don't use any equipment.

I like the yellow helmets. Yellow is a good color for them. Red I like the most. Looks dangerous.

In all honesty – Generic Toprol 100mg do quite a few of these things – just a bit differently at times maybe. I engage a heck of a lot – but they’re not always new people – although they are at times. Generic Ultracet do a lot of thanking (at least more than 10 a day) – especially for RT’s and comments – whether to new folks or to ones I already know. Doesn’t matter – a thank you to anyone that’s done something nice for you is well worth it. But then again – you already know how I feel about that right ?
