Yabba Dabba Do?


Is it just me, or does the Iowa Hawkeye logo bear a scary resemblance to Fred Flinstone?

When Benny and I discussed your Hawkeye/Fred Flintstone comparision yesterday, neither one of us was able to discern the connection. But after looking at the image in this post, I can definitely see it. Pretty amazing.

This link includes a pictoral history of Iowa football helmets. I remember the horribly, horribly lame 1978 edition, but don't recall ever seeing the surprisingly cool 1972 version.
http://www.collegegear.com/sf/stores/1269/c-126949.shtml. And how come Iowa doesn't still have those ridiculously oversized "ANF" decals on their helmets anymore? Does America no longer Need Farmers?

Regarding Saturday's game, I think we'll be fine as long as Lloyd and
the coaching staff spend as much time breaking down tape (especially of tOSU's domination of Iowa on 9-24) as Benny and I spent Thursday trying to figure out this college football Rorschach test.

LOL!! Welcome to the "Zone," Ian. I had totally forgotten about those ANF decals.

As for that picture, another friend said he thinks it looks more like Woody Woodpecker. Boy, at least we never have these kinds of debates about our helmets.
