    You knew it was coming - Iowa-Nebraska being called "Farmageddon" by Iowa Pres. Mason

    This is from a Q&A with Iowa president Sally Mason in an Iowa alumni newsletter. I haven't noticed yet, has the media been picking up on this highly unoriginal name for the game as well?

    This year we welcome the University of Nebraska to the Big Ten Conference. What will the Cornhuskers add to the conference—and to Iowa’s schedule?

    Farmageddon! Talk about rivalry games to cap a season—the Iowa–Nebraska contest will be spectacular from now on. I think adding Nebraska to the Big Ten is great because it allows us to have a playoff for conference champion during the football season. Stay tuned. I think we’re going to see some pretty fabulous football.

    I think the Iowa Corn Growers have an extra trophy they could use.

    I'm not sure why anyone wants this Farmageddon title...

    75% of the Iowa fan base is based on followers, so why quit now?

    I guess "America's Super ******-Off" was considered inappropriate to print in an alumni newsletter.

    The Legends needed something from a real leader, so they 'borrowed' the name.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    No problem. I have thought of a brand new nickname for the ISU/K-State series....... "Bedlam"

    Since they BOTH can't lose I don't care who wins this game. I just hope one team gets crushed. At least that will shut up one of the two fan bases.
