They could at least incorporate a football. And less gay dudes. Nice idea and all, just too much them and not enough Iowa, Iowa State, football, or trophy. On the plus side, maybe Iowa wont even want to win that ugly ass thing.

Because the Cy-Hawk trophy has nothing to do with the two schools or football anymore. I understand that the Corn Growers Association or whatever is the new sponsor of it. But they went a little overboard on whatever that is supposed to be. Sure that would make a great statue in front of their office, but not in either schools trophy case. Looks like something you would win for... I don't even know what. But its not a good football trophy.

Press conference at 2 p.m., Tuesday to announce what’s going on with the Cy-Hawk Trophy


I just got off the phone with Mindy Williamson, the director of communications for the Iowa Corn Growers Association and Iowa Corn Promotion Board.

I wanted to know if public opinion was swaying the Iowa Corn Growers to consider altering and/or changing the Cy-Hawk Trophy it unveiled last Friday at the Iowa State Fair.

She said a press release was forthcoming later today, but did say there will be a press conference Tuesday at 2 p.m. in Des Moines to discuss “what’s going on with the trophy.”

“We digested all the negative and positive feedback,” Williamson said. “It was overwhelming. That’s why we’re calling the press conference.”

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday he supports a “do-over” by the Iowa Corngrowers Association, which commissioned a new Cy-Hawk trophy to be given to the winner of the annual Iowa-Iowa State football game.
The new trophy — unveiled last week at the Iowa State Fair to replace the original Cy-Hawk trophy — features a farmer kneeling over a bushel of corn with his wife and two kids, and has drawn mostly negative reviews from the public.
“Oh, I think they can do better. I’m sure they’re going to take another look at that,” said Branstad when asked his opinion of the new trophy, to be presented to the winner of this year’s game Sept. 10 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames.

The Governor doesn't like it either!

This. When a Cyclone and a Hawk agree that something is bad you may rest assured it is in fact bad.
Family and corn are great things in and of themselves however nothing about that design says football, Iowa State U., U. of Iowa, or trophy.
Like Rust said, it's an advertisement not a trophy.

Have a Corn cob shaped like a football or something. Mini replicas of Jack Trice and Kinnick, or of the two guys themselves. Have Herky and Cy fighting for a piece of Corn. Just keep using the old one. If Corn is that important to them, just add it too the old one. Pretty much anything would be better.

This old one doesn't really wow you, but Jesus at least its a football trophy.

From 1983-1997 Iowa won it every year, the all time series is at 39-19 in favor of the Hawkeyes.

Yeah - I don't usually talk trash for this game because sometimes it ends up like this. There were enough defensive moments to keep that game turned on but it looks like Iowa has half a team and they're going to be lucky to win 2 more on the year. Kinda glad they don't have PSU this year.

No doubt he's not that good. He is hampered with a shitty running game and no real down the field threats. I wonder how many drops they had too.

The last INT was definitely on him though.

I agree he had zero help from receivers today, but it's been two games and he hasn't shown a thing. He's thrown checkdown after checkdown, and ignored wide open receivers. This only adds to the doubt after his ridiculously inconsistent play last year. Like Cassel, he inflated his stats against weak competition. His time as the starter can't end soon enough.

Keenan Davis continues to prove me right also. Early in his career he dropped about every other pass thrown to him. While he played better than expected last year, he seems to be back to his old self again..

The beauty of the college game is that at least you're not saddled with a big contract and an executive trying to prove himself correct. Vandy will be gone soon and the next marginal talent can start pissing away games. At least when Iowa loses to Iowa State early it's a good indication of how the year is going to be and I can determine how far out of my way I want to go in order to see games on Saturdays. Looks like most my Saturday afternoons will be free to actually watch some talented football teams this year.
