I went to school slightly before the hiring of Jim Criner, and one of the things that he did was to award a special red helmet to a player that had an outstanding game. The other players had some shade of mustard yellow hat. Anyway, a friend of mine thought that the different colored helmet was a great idea, but it just wasn't carried far enough. He thought that if a player really screwed up in the game he also needed to wear a special helmet, a dunce cap; a black one with an ugly yellow parrot on it.
Re: eIU Joke
Oldie but a goodie - A man walks into an Iowa City bar and orders a beer. He says"hey bartender would you like to hear a good Hawkeye joke?". The bartender looks at the guy and says " Hey buddy look to your left, that guy at the bar is a three time national champion wrestler for Iowa, the guy behind you was an All American Linebacker for the Black and Gold and me I was a four year starter on the Hawkeye Rugby Team. Are you sure you want to tell that joke in here?" The man shrugs and says "naah, I wouldn't wan't to have to explain it three times."

The Tragic Tale of the EIU Graduate
An EIU graduate was having financial troubles (imagine that - not able to find work???) so she decided to kidnap a child and demand a ransom. She went to a local park, grabbed a little boy, took him behind a tree and wrote a note. ''I have kidnapped your child. I am sorry to do this, but I need the money. Leave $10,000 in a plain brown bag behind the big oak tree in the park at 7AM.'' Signed, ''The Hawkeye.''
She pinned the note inside the little boy's jacket and told him to go straight home.
The next morning, she returned to the park to find the $10,000 in a brown bag behind the big oak tree, just as she had instructed. Inside the bag with the cash was the following note. ''Here is your money. I cannot believe that one Hawkeye would do this to another.''
I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova:
Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
