One of my photos was referenced in a comment to a blog post by ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg about the most memorable atmosphere’s in the 2011 college football season. While no Hawkeye games were mentioned this year, one fan believed the Iowa-Northwestern game played at Kinnick Stadium was worthy of mention and referenced my photo of the pre-game card stunt. Being there myself, I can say the atmosphere was incredible. Night games at Kinnick are special. The fans pulled off 2 card stunts this evening. One being patriotic during the conclusion of the National Anthem. The second commemorating Iowa’s farmers – America Needs Farmers – originally sponsored by legendary coach Hayden Fry. For the remainder of the game, the fans were decked out in alternating black and gold game day apparel, creating a magnificent stripe-out of Kinnick Stadium.
