Someone make a petition.
We'll traffic it through this site and the hok sites. Get this disaster of a trophy destroyed. Then let the fans actually make designs and send them in. Iowa Corn's "designers" obviously need to stay away from the drawing boards and get back to the fields. (I understand that last sentence comes off very ignornant)
I guess Iowa Corn doesn't want the trophy to be carried/rushed out onto the field. Instead of hoisting it above their heads in the middle of Kinnick, Cyclone players were figuring out proper hand placement so it wouldn't tip over and break like last time. Then again, I'm sure most of these guys bench that much and more, so it shouldn't have been that difficult.
Design-wise, I always figured the mascot design would look cartoonish, and that's exactly what we got. I would have preferred the Trice/Kinnick style instead, but at least the artwork looks well-finished.
I took a picture of my son with the temporary trophy at the fair this year. He can't wait tor next years fair to get a picture with this years trophy. I told him we will make it an annual tradition. When we visited the Hawk booth I wanted him to ask where their trophies were but I'm trying to teach him to not be a dick.
The Hawks locker room is getting crowded with the empty trophy cases and gold plated toilet that Doyle the meathead drags in after each loss for them to flush away the stench of their performance. Maybe they can get a trophy for the Central Michigan game.
