    Re: Cy mascot got a broken arm?

    I just wish people would be realistic about this and go after the a**hole that did it instead of blaming the university. I'm sure someone will find a way to hold them liable, but it's not as though their AD, their administration, or their football team encouraged someone to do this.

    It's a dumb-*** fan doing something stupid. If this happened in Ames and someone pushed Herkey down the stairs, how quick would everyone be to point out that this was isolated and was one idiot that did this.

    That's the only point I'm trying to make.

    Feel terrible for the kid and think it's sports at its worst.

    Would you allow a fellow fan to get away with something like this?

    -Then, suddenly, I looked over, and saw Cy sitting on the ground under and near a stairwell, clutching his/her arm
    -The medical and training staff came over and attended to Cy
    -A few Connecticut state police officers did come down, open up a notebook, and start asking questions to the people in the general vicinity of the altercation
    -A lot of people were pointing at somebody--didn't see who
    -Eventually, the cops left
    -I didn't see anybody in either cardinal and gold or blue and white being escorted with them, though

    I do want to say, though, that these UConn fans were really classless and entitled. I'd gone to Iowa City three times and Lincoln and Lawrence once before this wearing a band uniform while I did it, and I never had anything near as negative happen to me as what happened this evening in Hartford. I can relate the particulars if anybody wants to hear them, but there's at least three "incidents" of being verbally threatened just because I was wearing the wrong colors and we were winning.

    What happened with Cy--and, again, I don't have all the facts, just reporting what I saw--seems to me to be one of the worst things I've ever heard out of a fan base or an athletic event, in general. The person responsible should be liable for an assault charge as well as medical bills, and UConn should be liable for some of the latter and some damages for failing to provide a safe environment. I don't see how the railing would have been an issue. They seemed plenty high enough to me.

    I can relate those incidents above if anybody wants to hear (it was nothing too terrible, just some very smack talk with some bad nature and bad overtones to it), but I did want to outline what I saw happen to Cy tonight. Sorry, no pictures or film of it, though.
    It needs to be restated.

    You don't **** with the bird...

    It is on Uconn. You want a ******* war you got it...

    Re: Cy mascot got a broken arm?

    Sent an email. I requested that they help with any medical expense due to the incident.

    Re: Cy mascot got a broken arm?

    How big of a candy *** does one have to be to go after a mascot? Must be a real tough guy there. Hopefully someone from UCONN has the person(s) that is responsible for this as I havn't heard of something this pathetic before.

    Great Tweet from Iowa State:

    Biggest round of applause on the plane: Cy when arriving in cast. Coach Rhoads just signed the cast.

    Re: Cy mascot got a broken arm?

    Watching the game on ESPN2 and got a call that KASI 1430 announced the UCONN student thugs beat up CY and broke his or her arm. Hope a good lawsuit is aimed at UCONN thugs if true . Sounds like something an IOWA fan might do in IOWA CITY.
    First, this is a bit unfair. I know Cyclone fans here have stories about how horrible Iowa City is, all the horrible names they've been called and all the horrible things that have been thrown at them, but how many times has an ISU fan or program member been sent to the hospital, as the result of an assault occurring in or around Kinnick? Honest question.

    Second, I think there is a reason why mascots shouldn't go into the stand. I remember the story last year when a Minnesota professor, who had gone to a ton of Minnesota volleyball games, and was a big fan, punched Goldy in the face when the mascot kept poking him or something like that. Now imagine Cy taunting opposing fans while on the road (not saying that's what he or she did, OR that it justifies an assault). It's dangerous enough on the field, with opposing players and the opposing mascot...

    Third, this is UConn we're talking about. One of their players was stabbed to death following an altercation on campus, after the homecoming game (well, not right after).
