    Farmageddon

    Hey i was just lookin around the internet today and saw about the Farmageddon name for the Kansas State game. I must not have gotten on here enough during that week and just now learned about it.

    I was wondering how this name came about and how much weight it has to being an actual "rivalry" game with a trophy.

    Re: Farmageddon

    This won't turn into a traditional "rivalry" game. K-State doesn't want to play in KC any longer, even though JP is willing to give away a home game every other year to play at Arrowhead. I doubt anyone will keep calling the game Farmageddon if the two teams only play in KC once every two years.

    Re: Farmageddon

    why wouldn't it be called that regardless of where it's played? it's more of who the 2 teams are then where the game is played

    But it will be the last game of the regular season from here on out -- or until there's more conference shakeup.

    Re: Farmageddon

    Run a search on CF for "Farmageddon" to see who came up with it.

    Cannot an individual or enterprise (CF) TM the name and award it to whomever they choose?

    I started a petition a while back to make this game a trophy game and it got a few signatures

    Re: Farmageddon

    Farmageddon...no thanks, don't even want to hear any more about it...we don't need to give away any more to K-State. I'm actually not too happy this one is in craptastic Manhattan next year, as they were the home team this season. Another casualty over the summer.

    Re: Farmageddon

    I don't see why this game needs to be played in Arrowhead to be called "Farmageddon". We can call it that and play it in Ames and Manhattan.

    One thing's for sure and that's whatever happens with conferences going forward, we're probably going to be playing KSU every year.

    And I hate the idea of Nebraska and Iowa using it. Iowa is not an ag school.

    I could think of a lot more colorful names for the Nebby/Hawk match up.
