Indiana Hooser football retros

Does anyone remember, say in the late 70's or so...the Indiana Hoosier football team wearing an all beige or cream colored uniform with their classic red trim? I remember the helmet featured a weird variation of the "IU" interlocking letters. These we definately not white unis but a variation of a cream, peach or beige monochrome look.

thanks in advance for any replies

That was the Sam Wyche era, the early 80's. He brought those uni's in.

The "Sam Wyche Era" at Indiana was one year - 1983. That was the only year those were worn. Part of the design was to make it tough for the numbers to be picked up on the black-and-white coaches film that teams exchanged at the time, so that opponents would have a harder time telling the IU players apart. I did play-by-play for the IU student radio station at the time, and you could not read the "cream" numbers on the "crimson" jerseys from the press box.

I searched google for at least a half hour last night for a picture. I guess Indiana football isnt nearly the insitituion that b-ball is, as the fansites dedicated to football are few and far between. I'd love to see these.
