    Three more sports added to the Cy-Hawk Series

    Short version, they added both M/W XC and Men's Golf.

    Long Version:

    Cy-Hawk Adds Three Sports - CYCLONES.com—The Official Web Site of Iowa State University Athletics

    AMES, Iowa – The intrastate collegiate athletics competition between Iowa State University and the University of Iowa – the HyVee Cy-Hawk Series – gets a boost in 2007-08 with the addition of three new sports to the scoring formula.

    Officials at the two schools agreed to add men’s golf and men’s and women’s cross country to the competition. Thirteen events will now be included (volleyball was added last year for the first time), with each meeting counting for two points. The lone exception is football in which the winning squad earns three. There is also one academic point available for graduating student-athletes at a higher percentage than the undergraduate population.

    The men’s golf teams meet annually at the Big Four Meet (along with Drake and Northern Iowa) and the cross country teams compete in the same NCAA Regional each fall. The top finishing team in those three meets will earn the points.

    The schools have alternated victories in the three-year-old event and the UI holds a 2-1 series advantage.

    The over-hyped "Award" in nothing other than a big HyVee advertisement. Even when we won it, I did not get excited!

    I agree for the most part. What it does show is the athletic department as a whole compared to Iowa.
    The biggest problem I have is the big time sports, i.e. football,MBB,WBB are all played at one school each year and then rotate.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Yeah - it's not even something the Sqwaks brag about winning (whoda thunk?)

    Re: Three more sports added to the Cy-Hawk Series

    Golf??? WTF, is that an actual sport???

    I have some suggestions on how to make golf into an actual "sport" that normal humans could stand:

    1. Live Ammo
    2. Get rid of the pansy little white ball
    3. Full contact
    4. Cheerleaders

    But then, that's just me.

    Re: Three more sports added to the Cy-Hawk Series

    It seems we are 'par' on the golf side of things for the Cy-Hawk series... so basically a push.

    But I would expect us to be ahead of the UofI in both Men's and Women's Xcountry....

    right?

    -keep.
