    I Can't Say I Disagree

    The Lady Byng Trophy and the MLB Home Run Derby trophy are just two of Page 2's Lamest Trophies in Sports. - ESPN

    About 1/4th the way down the page.

    To be honest, the Cy-Hawk Trophy could easily be up there as well.

    Re: I Can't Say I Disagree

    I actually think the Cy-Hawk is a lamer trophy, but the ISU/Missouri "rivalry" is so non-existent, it merits inclusion.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: I Can't Say I Disagree

    Couldn't really tell if the rivalry description was tongue in cheek, but if it was, it definitely describes our bitter rivalry against Missouri. Grrr, those Tigers make me so angry! I can't wait to see them play ISU again this year so that we can finally get our revenzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

    The rubber band holding on the handset is a nice touch.

    Stupid premise for a column. Has anyone been asking the question, "I wonder what trophies an ESPN intern doesn't like?"

    I'm just happy the dig at the end was aimed at Mizzou and not us. It's sad what qualifies as a small victory when you're talking about ISU and ESPN.

    I didn't realize how streaky the ISU/MU series was. Looking at the picture, it seems like it went back and forth MU would win four or five, then ISU would win four or five.

    Re: I Can't Say I Disagree

    A better question is why don't we consider this a bigger rivalry. It has been pretty even over the years. It is a conference game. It is a border state. Are Iowa State fans that lame that the above combination isn't worth putting some importance on the game. Oh, I guess they aren't Iowa so nevermind.

    Besides the fact you love to take shots at ISU fans, why are the fans to blame?
    It is not nature, it is nurture.

    rivalries are between fanbases as much as teams. Looks to me like the teams have held their own and made it a pretty even rivalry. Yet, when we play mizzou, even for a north crown, we get empty apathetic stadium. who would you blame?

    Again, fans are not born (nature) knowing who to hate. How do fans learn (nurture) who their rivals are?

    Missouri is in a great position to be a legit rivalry for us (conference, geography, etc.). But you're right. They're not Iowa.

    I can't think of anytime I've heard "Go Tigers" in Ames outside of gameday against Mizzou. I'm not surrounded by taverntigers. Missouri sports aren't prominent in the local media. I haven't seen any b****ing on CF about Missouri airtime/coverage like I do with Iowa. Most of my fellow students are either from IA, IL, MN, or overseas, so I'm never around homegrown tiger fans. While my limited game-related encounters with Missouri fans have been poor (I'm not impressed at all with what I've seen so far from them), I'm not subjected to their behavior continually as I am Iowa fans.

    Yeah these 2 are just hideous. I'm glad we don't have to have one on display in ISU's trophy case.

    Missouri fans could care less because we're not Kansas.

    Missouri fans are just as apathetic about this game as ISU fans.

    Re: I Can't Say I Disagree

    The Telephone Trophy could probably be cool if they redid it. While I know we don't really have a rivalry with Missouri, Gary Pinkel has made me hate Missouri pretty bad.

    We should get a company like Verizon (ok...not actually a telephone) to sponsor this game and the trophy.
