Iowa football announces three of its "Color Games," I announce the other four

Everybody get in line.

As Marc Morehouse details in his On Iowa blog, Iowa has announced three "Color Games" for this season. They are gold for the Pittsburgh game, black or gold for the Northwestern night game depending on where you're sitting (for the stripes effect), and black for Michigan State.

In the words of Barenaked Ladies:

It's all been done

It's all been done

It's all been done before

Luckily, there are four other games at Kinnick Stadium to switch things up.

Tennessee Tech (Show Me the Money Game): This is a cash game for both teams. Iowa gets a cakewalk nonconference home game and all the money that goes with it. Tennessee Tech gets a beatdown, but takes a considerable sum back to Cookeville, Tenn. So wear green, everyone. Wear green.

Louisiana-Monroe (Spicy Cajun Delicacy Game):  To honor the visiting team, you are to all coordinate so that you look like a stadium-full of shrimp gumbo. This will be more difficult than it sounds.

Indiana (Elbow Room Game): Half of you are to wear something that makes you look invisible. It would be a salute (or taunt, if you're a cynic) to Indiana football attendance.

Michigan (Think For Yourself Game): Potentially, this could be a big Big Ten November game if the two teams take care of business in October. So, let's think big. Let's think about the crazy concept of freedom of fashion. Let's say that every fan can wear whatever he or she wants to this game, and let the chips fall where they may. If the weather is chilly and the most cozy jacket you have is brown ... wear it! If it's raining and you want to use an umbrella on your walk to the stadium, but your umbrella is red ... use it! If you choose to go without headwear and your hair is gray ... don't dye it black or gold!
