Did You See This? Kinnick Card Stunt

There was an unforgettable scene in Iowa City prior to Saturday night’s game against Northwestern, and BTN cameras captured it in its entirety. During the National Anthem, fans at Kinnick Stadium did a card stunt that went from the fans honoring the Red, White and Blue to showing school spirit with “Go Hawks” and Black and Gold. And how appropriate for it to happen with former Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi on the sideline. Job well done, Iowa.

On the field, Iowa was pretty impressive, too, beating Northwestern 41-31 in a shootout. Where do the Hawkeyes land in Brent Yarina’s Week 8 Power Rankings?

It was AWESOME, but you can’t do it at every game, it would lose its wow factor

It was a few days before my birthday (October 19 … October 19, 1985!) and what an amazing time we had pulling off the card stunt and being at the game! The whole day was electric!

Ricky Stanzi was there that night. I’m sure he was impressed. “USA #1!!”

A season ticket holder for 35 years this is easily the most impressive, moving thing i have ever seen.

Ken Dixon on 10/16/2011 @ 5:01pm EDT Said:

How could you not be pumped up for a game after that, Go HAWKS!

Matt on 10/16/2011 @ 7:08pm EDT Said:

Nice, but it violates proper respect for our national anthem which should be to place one’s right hand over your heart and face the flag. Welcome to sign along to the anthem but certainly not chant, “USA, USA,…” which seemed less than respectful.

Chad on 10/16/2011 @ 9:13pm EDT Said:

Really Matt! Thats what you took from this? They didnt have their hands over their heart? Its the most patriotic act Ive seen in along time!!!!

Hawk Fan on 10/17/2011 @ 11:28am EDT Said:

Slightly disheartened that Northwestern chose not to participate and complete the “ANF” logo.

Boo!, Matt!… This was awesome! “USA, USA, USA!!!!”
