    “We digested all the negative and positive feedback,” Williamson said. “It was overwhelming. That’s why we’re calling the press conference.
    I'm going to guess that it took a lot longer to digest the negative than the positive.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Press Conference

    It has got to be that they will re-do the trophy...

    From the article:

    “We digested all the negative and positive feedback,” Williamson said. “It was overwhelming. That’s why we’re calling the press conference.”
    Should read: "We digested all the negative feedback, It was overwhelming and that's why we're calling the press conference to announce that we will trash the old design."

    I'd be shocked if they changed it. Given the tone they've taken through all of this, they will continue to defend that terrible design.

    Why have a press conference for that? Why not just let it die? Nobody will care 3.5 weeks from now if they just stay quiet.

    Let's hope, that unlike the Big 10, the Iowa Corn Growers Association will actually take the 90% negative feedback and act on it, instead of arrogantly turning up their noses to the people giving them that feedback.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Press Conference

    This has probably been mentioned, but do they have a trophy for the overall Cy-Hawk series yet? I could see the failed football trophy fitting that roll.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Press Conference

    ICGA is the funding body, but I'd think both schools need to be in on whatever decision is made. Otherwise the trophy (in whatever version it is) won't be able to make it to the field.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Press Conference

    I understand that they poured a lot of money into this, but so did Hy-Vee and there wasn't anything involving Hy-Vee on the last trophy other than the plaque.

    Call it the "Iowa Corn Growers" Cy-Hawk series, but imo, the best design would involve Kinnick and Trice.

    This wouldn't surprise me but I'm not sure what they could do to save the CyHawk anyway; contrived sponsor driven trophies defeat the purpose of trophy games. We should be playing for some sort of gift (cup, statuette) from the Governor or one that pays homage to Trice and Kinnick. The notion that the trophy should change or end with the sponsor is just dumb.

    Re: Iowa Corn Growers Press Conference

    Is this the first ever press conference for a trophy?
