    Branstad Supports Cy-Hawk Trophy do over

    Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday he supports a “do-over” by the Iowa Corngrowers Association, which commissioned a new Cy-Hawk trophy to be given to the winner of the annual Iowa-Iowa State football game.
    The new trophy — unveiled last week at the Iowa State Fair to replace the original Cy-Hawk trophy — features a farmer kneeling over a bushel of corn with his wife and two kids, and has drawn mostly negative reviews from the public.
    “Oh, I think they can do better. I’m sure they’re going to take another look at that,” said Branstad when asked his opinion of the new trophy, to be presented to the winner of this year’s game Sept. 10 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames.

    Seems like the trophy was designed after a scene from the Depression. Some may say it is a little corny.

    Iowa Corn really needs to reconsider when the governor says something like this.

    I'd like to see a Kinnick-Trice trophy.The two most famous figures at each school, and the stadium namesakes.

    There really is little question that a trophy redesign, should have included those two figures. They are both so iconic to their respective programs, as well as the state in general. It's always amazed me how some corporations get it. How easy it is for them to put their name out there and get good pub and for others, it's a giant cluster ****. I'm dumbfounded that this even came up as an idea for a trophy, let alone actually was made into one.

    It is only a trophy, I guess I don't really care one way or the other. As long as we win the game.

    I still think a cob of anything probably would be better than playing for a family. Honestly, it seems creepy to me. Since the first time I saw it, I've been trying to put into words what I feel and I can't. All I can say is that it's a creepy image to me. At least in the context of a football trophy.

    Re: Branstad Supports Cy-Hawk Trophy do over

    The governor is taking time to answer questions about something with as little importance as this trophey. This alone states how bad it is.


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