Then who would you contact? Because the trophy really does suck.
You'd probably have to contact the 2 schools athletic directors. There isn't a sponsor for that atrocity. If you offer a donation and are willing to buy a better trophy I imagine they would go along with it. I don' think anyone in the state likes that abomination.
I love the "Corn Bowl" idea. I think we need a name for the game other than cy-hawk series which doesn't even refer to the game specifically.
We all ready get national television for the game, mostly because there are no other good games (the last two years are the exception to the previous 10 years of generally interesting games) that early in the season at that time slot. I think we need to label it the corn bowl, then when my dream comes true (which I believe it will someday) of a ranked ISU playing a ranked Iowa the name will all ready be in place for a nationally televised game that would presumably have rankings/bowl importance.
Think of the civil war, the apple bowl (I think), egg bowl, iron bowl, civil war, red river rivalry, lone star show down, heck even the border war gets press when KU is no longer good. These games have much older names and generally more national attention lending to college football tradition (the best part about college ball). While corn bowl is a new name, the idea of two teams from Iowa playing in the corn bowl has intrinsic historical/traditional tones.
A name like corn bowl (though some of us cringe every time they show a corn field during the game) would make sense and would do a better job of branding the game we all care about, but few nationally do.
