    Actually it would be this:



    The mascot is based off a character in Last of the Mohicans. Which is dumb.

    I think you're confusing the state nickname with Alan Alda's character in M*A*S*H.

ISU does not seem to have a shortage of suites, and if they did, it would seem to make more sense to add them to the east side, and move the students into the SEZ.
    Press box is fine. I've seen nothing from JP that implies we are going to expand the size of it. He has said on multiple occasions that the interior needs to be upgraded (amenities, etc.).

    Mascot

    Iowa's mascot is Herky the Hawk, a black and gold caricature of a Hawk. Herky was created as a cartoon in 1948, and first appeared at a sporting event in 1959. Herky was actually named after the Greek God Hercules. The term "Hawkeye" originally appeared in the book The Last of the Mohicans and was later used in its plural form to describe the people of Iowa. The University of Iowa adopted this as the nickname for its athletic teams.

    Iowa Hawkeyes Football History - College Football

    Herky and the Hawkeyes
    The University of Iowa borrowed its athletic nickname from the state of Iowa many years ago.

    The name Hawkeye was originally applied to a hero in a fictional novel, The Last of the Mohicans, written by James Fenimore Cooper. Author Cooper had the Delaware Indians bestow the name on a white scout who lived with them.

    In 1838, 12 years after the book was published, people in the territory of Iowa acquired the nickname, chiefly through the efforts of Judge David Rorer of Burlington and James Edwards of Fort Madison.

    Edwards, editor of the Fort Madison Patriot, moved his paper to Burlington in 1843 and renamed it the Burlington Hawk-Eye. The two men continued their campaign to popularize the name and territorial officials eventually gave it their formal approval.

    The Hawkeye nickname gained a tangible symbol in 1948 when a cartoon character, later to be named Herky the Hawk, was hatched. The creator was Richard Spencer III, instructor of journalism.

    I mean I guess if Southern Miss and Iowa's logos weren't similar this wouldn't have happened?

    Patent office tells Southern Miss its logo too similar to Iowa’s | Hawk Central

    Der, der, derrrr.

    So? Two old judges opinions on legality means little in terms of perception.

    Nevertheless, other schools having similar colors or logos to each other does not suggest such ISU having such a similarity to another college program is a positive.

    That's rich. I'm okay with the whole needing to get laid thing. Got that pretty much under control since I'm still in college.

    Thanks for worrying about me though.

    I'ma have to agree with Klamath on this. There's a difference between disagreeing with someone and calling them an idiot (before changing it to der, der, derrr).

    Hawkeye was named after the character in Last of the Mohicans. The Hawks were nicknamed after the state (and indirectly after the character too). We're both right.

    Yeah, after my last post, I went back to what I was doing and finally thought to myself...you're arguing over the origins of the Hawkeye...WTF. Decided not to delete it just because I was lazy.

    Carry on, as you were...at least we can agree on Ribs and Whiskey.
