    Never Graduate...

    I've got a really great idea for an ESPN Never Graduate commercial involving ISU/EIU...

    First shot is overlooking an elementary school social studies teacher's shoulder opening up a textbook to the State of Iowa page.

    The camera zooms in to the page where it says "The Hawkeye State" just as the teacher takes a big black magic marker to it.

    Once again, over the shoulder, the teacher closes the book, puts it on a small pile on one side of the desk, and grabs a book from a larger pile on the other side of the desk. She opens the book up to the State of Iowa page and repeats the process.

    The camera shot then cuts to view the front of the classroom to view her grabbing yet another textbook. The front of the classroom is decked out in Iowa State decor, and the teacher is wearing an ISU polo. On the blackboard in big bold letters it says "FIX ERROR ON STATE OF IOWA PAGE."

    Bottom of the screen it reads "Never Graduate."

    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    That's pretty good. What exactly is the "ESPN Never Graduate" commercial thing? I've never heard of it.

    Re: Never Graduate...

    not bad, my personal idea is that a guy and a rather attractive girl are making out on a couch, it starts to get a little heavy and the girl goes to take off her sweater, revealing a hawkeye undershirt. The guy throws her off the couch and yells, "Go Cylones!", with "Never Graduate" on the screen.

    What? You've never seen that "blind date" commercial when a guy jumps out of a moving vehicle and down a hill because he's a Buckeyes fan and his blind date is a Michigan fan? Or the "Pictionary" commercial where the guy's wife tries to get her Texas A&M loving fan to say "Hook'em Horns" (and says virtually anything but...)?

    Wow, you need to watch more ESPN. You're missing out

    Yeah, but that's too similar to two commercials ESPN's already done, the Michigan/OSU fans making out commercial with the tagline, "Without sports, this wouldn't be disgusting," and the one where the OSU fan jumps out of the moving vehicle.

    Re: Never Graduate...

    what it should do is have it so its like a new couple and they are like glued together then come game day they walk out of 2 diffrerent bathrooms and see one in a hwks shirt and another in a cyclone shirt..then u can figure out the rest


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Balls.. I haven't seen the Michigan/OSU make out one, but I know the one with the OSU fan jumping out of the car. I just liked the idea of the Cyclone opting out of sex(presumably) with an attractive woman, just because she is a Hawkeye fan. Yours is pretty good, but I think the whole "Cyclone state/Hawkeye state" wouldn't be as humorous to a non-Iowan. Granted were just dreaming that ESPN would even entertain the notion of an ISU/Iowa commercial.

    Re: Never Graduate...

    The OSU fan jumping out of the moving car commercial was a bit weak, but I absolutely loved the UT/TAMu one. :D My girlfriend couldn't figure out what was so damned funny...

    There's also a commercial showing a Husker fan going through various spellings of "Huskfan" or "Huskerz" at the DOT for his custom license plate. As much as I hate Nebraska, that one was pretty funny too. All in the execution...


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Huck The Fuskers (that'd be a good one if it would fit.) I hate nebraska as much as iowa, but still i'll admit too that it was a funny commercial. I like the Texas/A&M one the best tho with hook em horns and pictionary.

    I'd love to see some Cyclone fans make a Hawkeye pinata and bash the heck out of it like in the UNC/Duke Never Graduate commercial...
