Perhaps you’ve seen the throwback uniforms the Memphis men’s basketball team has worn this season (here’s a picture!). Get ready for a similar look in the Big Ten early next month. According to Iowa SID Matt Weitzel (@BigWeitz), the Haweyes will be wearing throwback uniforms Feb. 4 against Penn State. The unis are part of Lettermen’s Day, which will honor the 1986-1987 Elite Eight team, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. See a picture of the uniforms in this post. Also, read more about them here.
These are awesome, there’s no other way to put it. Between the script Iowa on the chest and the sides of the shorts and the throwback waistband — you rarely, if ever, see that these days — it creates a feeling of nostalgia. None of the Hawkeyes were born when Iowa wore these threads, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they ask to wear them again this season.
