    ISU makes the Elite 8 in Slate's Mascot Death Match

    Well, if it is any consolation, ISU is storming through the competition in Slate Magazine's Basketball Tournament Mascot Death Match. It's looking good for the Cyclones...there aren't many natural-disaster obstacles in the way, as far as I can see, but I have a paranoic vision that an east-coast bias might bring about our downfall...I'm guardedly optimistic that the internets will bring about the championship that we, as ISU fans, deserve...however virtual and ephemeral it would be.

    I'm confused; our mascot is a cardinal. We have the same mascot as L-Ville...

    well, in the minds of the Slate writers, they have focused on the school's nickname, not on our actual "mascot", per se; they have excluded the "cardinal" aspect of ISU's identity....the only school that stands in the way, really, is Detroit....does a Titan, as a Greek God, have an ability to control the weather? That may be the decision point....if my brief research has any credence, a Titan does not have the power to control acts of nature...

    Titans are not Greek Gods. In fact, Zeus made the Titans into the Greek Gods' beyotches.

    Therefore, Cyclones>>>>Titans.
