    "More than just a Five O'clock Shadow" E-mail from Athletic Dept

    Just got this in my ISU e-mail.... Hope it all shows up. There are pics of "example" facial hair. Pretty funny!

    Yep, That's right... a facial hair competition!
    The person who grows the best facial hair wins a Cyclone shaving prize pack!

    According to the American Mustache Institute... "it is important to note that the greatness of a mustache is that a new style can be created each day by any mustached man... and sometimes a woman." As the AMI often notes, "A mustache is a terrible thing to waste."

    Here are the rules:

    1. Email a picture of yourself freshly shaven to cy@iastate.edu
    no later than Feb. 7 (please include your name).

    2. Send an updated photo of your progress by Feb. 14.

    3. Submit final photo of your three week facial hair
    growth by Feb. 21.

    4. Be creative and have fun!

    Winners will be selected during intermission of the Iowa State vs. Nebraska wrestling meet (Feb. 24 at 2 p.m.). Contestants must be present to win.

    I think Haluska caught wind of this a few weeks ago and is in competition.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Not unless I take some testosterone or something else to turn me into a guy....

    Any guy who can grow some massive facial hair in that amount of time should get an award!

    I am so doing this!


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Re: "More than just a Five O'clock Shadow" E-mail from Athletic Dept

    This sucks, a pic of me two weeks after the original will look exactly the same... How do they expect me to grow quality facial hair in two weeks, I need at least two months!

    Pretty sure I could win this if I had any interest in being clean shaven first! My Bohemian face would grow hair back later that day.

    I am SOO glad our athletic department has the time and resources to put things like this together... instead of... you know, important things like student attendance at basketball games or anything...

    (LOL)

    That is great. I laughed my butt off on some of those.

    a few weeks isn't really enough time to really get some quality facial hair for most though.
