    Should be a bushel of extra sponsor tickets with all of the farmers in the fields.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Association Cy-Hawk Series

    Can we use the money to buy a new trophy?

    Call me what you will, but I was fine with no title sponsor.

    Yes, it will now be a giant, gold ear of corn with the winners engraved each year on a separate kernel.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Association Cy-Hawk Series

    I think it should be titled the "State of Iowa Corn" whatever. Labeling it the "Iowa Corn" whatever seems to imply affiliation and prejudice to EIU. Notice they didn't call it the "Iowa State Corn" trophy.

    No suprise here, the ICGA has already become a more prominent sponsor than Hy-Vee at the games over the last few years.

    I was thinking the same thing. The current FB trophy is very lame. There needs to be some sort of corn icon on the trophy. Why can't we be clever and call the annual football game the "Corn Bowl." The national media pundits would love it.

    Notice it is being sponsored by the "Iowa Corn Growers Association," not the "Iowa State Corn Growers Association."

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Association Cy-Hawk Series

    You guys do realize that this is for the Cy-Hawk series not the football game? The ugly trophy you are all talking about I assume is the Cy-Hawk trophy?


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    They are one in the same as far as most people are concerned.

    Cy-Hawk Series:

    FOOTBALL, Basketball, everything else

    Not arguing that point. But the trophies are different. So if you want to get rid of the abysmal football trophy petitioning the sponsor of the series isn't going to do squat.

    That is ridiculously over-sensitive.

    Hey they actually put up a picture of the Cy-Hawk Series trophy. I think this is honestly the first time I have ever seen it!
