This will be the FIRST SEASON since 1976 that the Iowa Hawkeyes will not be taking on the Iowa State Cyclones on the football field.
Nor will the Hawkeyes be taking on the Northern Iowa Panthers after the BIG TEN announced on Thursday, July 9 that the 2020 season will only consist of conference play.
This is definitely not a good thing for our state school athletic programs whose revenues are overly dependent on their school's football programs. For example, Northern Iowa will not be compensated the $650,000 payment for taking on the Hawks.
And, what a bummer it is to not be able to tease our family and friends this year during the Cy-Hawk, Hawkeyes vs. Panthers, and Cyclones vs. Panthers games.
It's now like 2020 has become the Season of Peace.
THE "IOWA PEACE SYMBOL" T-SHIRT
We at "Iowa love" got inspired by this notion of a Season of Peace and designed this commemorative T-Shirt.
The "IOWA Peace Symbol" design is meaningful and conceptually fun. Meaningful in that each letter of "Iowa" can be found making up this iteration of a Peace Symbol. And fun because of the implication that the 2020 season is a Season of Peace as our friendly rivalries are not playing each other - so "peace" on the field, and "peace" within our families and friends groups.
The Symbol is screen printed in the Cedar Valley on an amazingly soft triblend T-Shirt - for most of you, this will the be softest shirt you've ever owned!
To date, "Iowa love" has fundraised and donated $50,000+ to support nonprofits across the state, most notably through our partnership with The Carson King Foundation earlier this year.
The college football season is all fun and games until athletic programs lose millions of dollars in revenue due to a shorted season - so let's do what we can to help shore up some of those losses by purchasing a "IA Peace Symbol" T-Shirt.
Consider this to be a replacement to purchasing a ticket to a game.
100% of the net proceeds (margin after production, order fulfillment, marketing, processing) from the sale of each T-Shirt will be donated, currently estimated to be $12 per adult size sold.
Athletic programs supported are based on the color scheme of T-Shirt purchased:
