    Votes, still winning 43%-29%. The name we came up with is "The Iowa State Cyclones Starting Varsity Defense."


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    How about Rhoad's Rogues? or Special K (Knott & Klein). Just throwing them out there.

    KSU is second? They just let KU put up 400 yards on them.

    Maybe we could name them "The Pride of Iowa State".... I cringe every time the PA announcer refers to the band as the pride of Iowa State. If the band is the thing we are most proud of... well then we suck at football and should just close up shop on the entire program.

    Wally's Wankers?

    It's got the alliteration, but I think it might send the wrong message.
