RAGBRAI College Spirit Jersey Day

Coralville is anxious to welcome you and celebrate this new annual tradition.  We encourage all riders to pack and wear your favorite school jersey as you travel from the land of the Pioneers (Grinnell College) to the home of the Hawkeyes. Even you Cyclone fans will be welcomed with open arms at the end of this 74-mile day!  🙂

Go Hawks!

I’ll be wearing my cyclone jersey!  Despite the in-state rivalry, I’m most looking forward to Coralville and Iowa City.

I hope that for at least one day, I won’t be berated while wearing my Cyclone gear coming into C-ville.

As an alumni of Illinois State University, I will make fun of redbird wannabe Cy until the end of time.  Reggie Redbird will be flying high that day.

Bike World. $80. It’s an awesome jersey.

My son goes to the “other ISU” (Illinois State) so I like to wear the “real ISU” (Iowa State) jacket when I visit him.  It fits right in and I’ve received complements and people asking where I got the jacket (thinking it was Illinois State).

I’ll wear my Cyclone tee shirt around Coralville when we visit.  It’s bright red so it will be easy to spot.

Pirate Brewer-  We’ll see some red and yellow ISU stuff once in awhile.  It’s a dead giveaway it’s not the correct ISU, but at least it’s close and someone had good intentions.  Anything is better than that God awful orange of embarrassment U.

Pirate Brewer – I agree, as an Iowa State alum, and recently new resident of Illinois, Iowa State is the real ISU.  The redbirds might have a mascot that makes more sense, but ISU stands for Iowa State.

SFC JKL2 – I think you mean cardinal and gold… but that’s just semantics.  I do agree with your comment about “embarrassment U’s” colors.

I feel some really good U of Iowa jokes coming on.

We thought, for one day, you didn’t want to be berated coming into Coralville?  If UI jokes start happening, we will be looking our for you Kenneth!  Got that avatar of yours printed and on standby with the Volunteer Committee.  Ha!  Go Hawks.

Go redbirds! I believe all 4 members of our team will also be wearing the red jersey. 

And you Cyclones, keep the Redbirds in mind.  With the collapse of the Big 12, alot of alumns have a pipe dream (in a land far far far away…) that we may move up someday and become conference foes.  I will be the first to admit that there are alot of other better athletic schools that would fit, but we just like to dream about being in a big boy league someday.
