    2009 Capital One National Mascot

    Why isn't Cy in this competition in 2009? Can we not win it two years in a row?

    Re: 2009 Capital One National Mascot

    Wasn't it something about the AD not wanting to do something with Capital One because that's not who we are associated with?

    Does it really matter? We win nothing by voting for these things.

    I believe the university (not the athletic department) put the kibosh on it. Something about having a deal with a different bank.

    Something to do with all of our loans are with a competitor of Capital One if I recall right


    Slightly more complicated than that... like we have a good relationship, long history with them ect ect ect. Like someone else said, politics


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    I guess that means if we are ever good enough to make it to the capital one bowl, we will have to turn that down too, huh? dang. [insert pirate here]

    We can worry about that if we are ever members of the SEC or Big Ten.

    You can still choose Cy as a write-in candidate, so he could pull out the upset...

    Yeah, tell that to Spirit Squad. They won a lot of money last year for new Cy props, suits, and even helped out cheer with our new flags. How do you think Cy has such cool stuff lately (bikes, a t-shirt gun, different outfits)?

    Plus, wouldn't it be even more funny if Cy won after the University decided not to allow him to be in the contest after last year?
