    Re: Farmageddon Preview

    Well thought out in my opinion - you should have put Farmageddon in it - that is what I am calling this game from now on - we should all spring for an annual trophy and make it the North's Red River...

    I'd suggest something that contains bailing wire and bubblegum. Mounted on an old barn board.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Farmageddon Preview

    Excellent preview article and I also fully agree with using the Farmageddon nomenclature for this annual event.

    Ames is smack dab (how's that term from my Iowa farm roots?) in the middle of the best farm land in the country - and in the world. And I-State is a land grant school with a strong ag heritage plus a premiere vet-med college. Sure, I typically describe it as an engineering school - probably because I am one. But afterall we're also one of the few schools with an ag engineering program (I think it still exists, doesn't it?).

    So let's embrace the rural heritage of our state and school and the catchy Farmageddon title for this annual game with another agricultural based state school.

    I like the trophy idea - maybe John Deere should pitch in on it. It could also be cool to have an annual logo design contest with participants from each school. And the winning logo used for the game broadcasts, t-shirts, etc.

    So let's go out there and support and win in Farmageddon '09!

    Trophy:

    On top of wood..the objects bronzed of course......from iowa (a couple golden stalks of corn representing ISU) and a pieces of wheat from Kansas on the other side representing K-State.

    Would be nice.....fit into the "Farm" theme.

    That pic of A-rob is awesome. Look at his eyes. He looks like he will kill you.
