Cy-Hawk Trophy scrapped, fan input solicited

The voice of football fans in the state of Iowa has been heard, and as a result, the new Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Trophy (seen at right) is no more. Four days after the trophy's unveiling -- to nearly universal derision -- officials from the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and Iowa Corn held a press conference on Tuesday to announce that the trophy will not be used for the Iowa-ISU game on September 10 or any games thereafter.

The officials announced that future ideas for the trophy would be solicited from the public, and that the public would be part of the selection process as well. That's obviously a lengthy process -- not one that can be expected to be fully implemented in the 18 days between today's press conference and the September 10 game. At the same time, fans don't want the trophy on the sidelines even once, and this current trophy is clearly not an option.

The solution: an interim trophy, to be used once in next month's game while the permanent trophy is being made. Yes, an interim rivalry trophy. This is what college football has come to, we suppose.

As for the design of the new permanent trophy, we'll reiterate our support for a giant, half-open ear of corn where it's a football on the inside of a husk. Footballs pretending to be food are always entertaining. It's scientific fact.

This trophy is at least as lame as the Iowa-Nebraska one.

Why should anyone in Iowa get a trophy for anything ? They can't even hold a election,they hold a STRAW POLL.

Iowa, is that where the men work about 22 years then sit around the local Mom & Pop
Store and tell stories and ogle cute young girls?

Maybe the cap on the man could be chiselled off, and hair put on the man
to make him look like J.F.K. Then sell the statue to Obama for $100,000 and
place the statue on the White House lawn.

This trophy could work, with a few modifications. Have dad tuck the kid under his arm... have him do his best heisman pose and he jumps over the bucket of corn... and for good measure stiff arm mom and daughter away. Who wouldn't want to play for that trophy?

It should be a crystal Jar shaped like corn. Everytime one of the teams wins.... drop in one kernal of corn with the color of the winning school. But I'm just sayin!
