    Re: Get ready

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO pumped for this. Seriously, I could care less that we only won 2 games this year as long as we win this mascot challenge. If we win this, I bet Ames goes crazy. I'm talking - cars being thrown into Lake Laverne and restaurants handing out free cheese- crazy. Let's get nasty.

    How the heck did Cy end up finishing so high? 3 weeks ago we were number 11.

    Re: Get ready

    Remember that the first 11 weeks' standings were based first on win-loss records, and second by vote totals (for those with the same w-l records.) So, Cy ended with in 2nd place because of overall w-l record and then behind in total votes only to Thundar.

    Re: Get ready

    I wonder if people will pile on the votes for the underdog again...so far it doesn't seem that way.

    Re: Get ready

    I compared the weekly totals for all Cocky, The Bird, Testudo, and Buster. I was hoping to figure out who was consistently getting more votes, so that we could vote against them. Unfortunately, I can't tell. Both matchups are pretty damn even in that regard. I think we should wait a day or two to see what happens. Then we start voting for the underdog in the Bird/Cocky matchup, and the stronger candidate in the Buster/Testudo matchup. We want to take Thundar out in the semifinals so that we don't have to compete against them in the final.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Get ready

    Thundar, Buster, Testudo, and Cy all have finals beginning Dec. 15th, the day the voting ends. Cocky has finals Dec. 8-15. I couldn't find the schedule for The Bird. I have no idea if that makes a difference or not. And yes, I've spent way too much time thinking about this. Mrs. yCy

    Re: Get ready

    I expect the next round to be the biggest challenge for both Cy and Thunder. Both will have a target on their back due to the bye status and will likely have not just one, but 3 fan bases trying to oust them. Best advise when we get there is to lay low and not attract too much attention. Stay competitive early on and then make a big push in the closing days.
