    Re: Vote for Cy this Fall!

    About time Cy makes it! He deserves to be a part of the elite group.

    Any chance we can sticky this thread somewhere?

    Also, I LOVE the fact that Cy is featured front and center in the promotional artwork on the website!

    Ugh, there goes hours and dollars out of my employers hand. Not to mention the burnout on my clicking finger.

    Re: Vote for Cy this Fall!

    This is pretty cool for Cy, but the overall concept is pretty stupid.

    When Iowa played in the Capital One Bowl, I was there. (Don't ask why.)

    I was actually looking forward to this big thing about what they did for this, as you always see the commercials. They put up a video on the video board during the game, and that was all they did for it.

    But the 500 commercials leading up to it is good PR.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Here is a breakdown of the mascots:

    Testudo - what the hell?
    Mr. Wuf - neutered
    Thundar - spelling
    Joe Bruin - transvestite
    Cocky - has a shot
    Smokey - do I even have to say it?
    The Bird - leave it to the Air Force for originality
    Cy - Is this really a challenge, or a mere formality?

    Re: Vote for Cy this Fall!

    My question is, did the people at CapitalOne just decide to put Cy in the competition, or did somebody from ISU lobby for it? If it's the latter, good job out of whoever did that. If it's the former, Cy is getting some well deserved recognition!

    Yes. It is no doubt great PR for Iowa State. I'm just saying the way that Capital One Does it at the Bowl game is stupid.

    I hope the AD pushes this. I think that is why we won the most dominate mascot challenge is because the AD made a big deal about it.

    No, Cy had to try out and send in a highlight video and Capital one put him with the rest of the top 12 mascots in the nation.

    I'm digging the fact he's sporting our new away jersey as well! That looks pretty sharp on him. I got tired of the red on red he always had with the home jersey.

    Prime placement in the photo too, front row center.

    Honestly, this won't even be a contest. Cy's a freakin' force of nature wrapped up in a mighty cardinal package! Can a bulldog really be expected to take him on?
