Throwback Thursday

On the first day of FBS college football, NCAA.com is pleased to present a new, fun weekday tradition: Throwback Thursday, a time to look upon our past with equal parts nostalgia, pride and a healthy dose of shame. For as casual style goes through awkward changes and redesigns so do football uniforms and logos.

For our first installment, we take a look at the football team from the last state to join the U.S.: The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors.

In fact these unis -which scream RAINBOW more than warriors- are from the same year that Hawaii became a state, 1959.

And, don't think Hawaii will be too shocked to see this blast from the past either; the Rainbow Warriors have brought these head-turning kits back themselves in recent years.

I suppose to stand out in a conference in which one team plays on blue turf, you've gotta be colorful.
