was wondering that too....

googled it

"Hayden Fry put on decals that reminded people that AMERICA NEEDS FARMERS (ANF). Fry knew the Hawks would be playing on national television numerous times and felt he could get the message out to the entire country that farming and agriculture were very important to the people in the Midwest. "

so they put the ANF decal back on, I see. so are they gonna only have it on for national broadcasts or is it back for good? I'll be real, it takes me back to when I was 5, and some of my first football memories were of Iowa with what I initially thought was a thunderbolt over the hawk.

Yep, read on UniWatch that they'd be wearing it all year, kind of an odd placement, but hey, it grabs your attention!

Hasn't it always been towards the top of the helmet? Or am I just too old and remembering it wrong?

The original was centered over the top of the Tiger Hawk logo, and the ANF letters were much larger. Hey, if you're going to use your helmet to send a message, shout it!

I also remember the sticket being larger and more in the center. I think they had to move it forward due to the number of helmets that have the vent holes in the center of the helmet. I can't find an image from this year, but I think they still have the outline of the state of Iowa with ANF inside it on the back of the helmet.

If I remember right, they started wearing it their 85 Rose Bowl season (Chuck Long Heisman finalist year).
