    I don't think everything has to have a cutsey nickname. ISU vs KSU is fine with me. But I'm boring.

    I thought farmegeddon was good, but I like the Combine Classic!


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    I like Farmageddon.

    The Combine Classic sounds like a golf tournament.

    Out of those? Farmageddon.

    I'd prefer to call it Iowa State annual victory game.

    Farmageddon - unique and hopefully becomes a big game - Look what the Red River Shootout has done for UT - OU ... fried stuff on a stick and football.

    Farmageddon - BBQ and football - even better ;)

    Re: Combine Classic vs. Farmagedden vs. Battle for the Basement

    Farmageddon is unique, but at the same time not... They called the Kansas v. Mizzu game Armageddon, this is just a take off of that, but a good one...

    Re: Combine Classic vs. Farmagedden vs. Battle for the Basement

    Armageddon at Arrowhead never stuck - Kansas going 8-5 last year killed that - Armageddon got big only after LSU lost that year if I remember right.

    Farmageddon is a bit more ambiguous - could apply any year - Armaggeddon is better known as 'the Border War'

    Wouldn't it be hard to explain how ISU has only won their "annual victory game" 5 times in the last 2 decades?

    Re: Combine Classic vs. Farmagedden vs. Battle for the Basement

    I'm pretty sure that CU has the basement locked up, so can we stop with the ISU sucks talk? Seriously. We are 3-1 under a new coaching staff, yet people post **** like this. Awesome.

    Exactly. CU has the basment firmly occupied for the foreseeable future.

    Re: Combine Classic vs. Farmagedden vs. Battle for the Basement

    "Farmagedden" in various spellings, has already been used for quite a few different things. Not saying I don't like it. Just that if it gets much play, those who "own" the name might take it back.
