Iowa football ditches script

Huh I wasn't aware that Hayden Fry actually gained permission from the Steelers to use this design and when I see Iowa football I see the black with the gold stripes and that's what makes them still in my mind one of the best sets in college football.

How anyone can feel that sleeve stripes are still appropriate for football uniforms is beyond me. There is simply no rational reasoning that can be used to justify their inclusion on this particular uniform.

They need a major overhaul to separate themselves from the Steelers.

Agreed. Not that the Steelers look all that fresh to begin with, but it defines who they are. And up to this point, with the six rings and legacy they've made for themselves, that uniform shoud be exclusive to Pisstburgh. I guess, if anything, at least Iowa slaps a Hawkeye sticker on both sides their helmet.

Minor change for their uni's this year

I kind of liked the Iowa better but these just look the same so no real upgrade/downgrade

I think the collar logo could've done without the white outline.

I, for one, think a team with the name "Hawkeyes" could actually use a modern, original design.

Not without updating their logo first

You're damn right they could.

And agreed with BBTV on the "stripes" on these. They're as wide as they are tall at this point. Let 'em go, and come up with something that actually fits the uniform. Preferably something that doesn't involve just changing the shade of gold on the Missouri unis and calling it a day.

I'd prefer nothing on the collar, but this is fine I guess. Based on Hawkeye fans' responses to the new logo and those crazy feather uniforms, I doubt people would be too happy about a major change. The new cut of uniforms makes the stripes look pretty bad, but I doubt they're going anywhere anytime soon...

Those uniforms were about 7 years ahead of their time

Since when does rational thought go into designing football uniforms?

I agree. White outlining yellow just doesn't work, especially on something so small. And if they don't need it on the helmet -- or basketball jerseys' collar -- why in the world did they add it there? I prefer what they had before, but agree they need a non-Apex modernization.

However, I like the effect of yellow outlining white. These jerseys are my personal favorites, although they screwed up the tigerhawk in exactly the same way. They modernized the Steelers look into their own version that says Iowa (literally):

I think the white jerseys distribute the colors better.

Agreed. Those uniforms from mid-late 90s, just after the Apex 1 monstrosities, were their best look. I am all for tradition, but I wouldn't mind seeing a change to something along those lines.

I doubt if they'll be changing for a while. Kirk Ferentz is big on tradition. He changed the uniforms back to the Steelers look after he took over as head coach and he just signed a seven year extension to keep him at Iowa until 2015. Of course that doesn't mean he'll stick around that long, but as long as he's there, they uniforms won't be changing much.
