Stumbled across this thread and I wanted to let you know that Iowa didn't rip them off. Iowa was struggling in the 60s/70s and Fry wanted to capture a winning "look". The Steelers were, obviously, one of the best teams of the 70s. Fry contacted Art Rooney asking for permission to use the helmet scheme and a home uni. Rooney was kind enough to send back a full home and road set along with the helmet design.
