    Cy Hawk Series

    I just checked this out for the heck of it. Currently we are up 12 - 7 with 4 events left to go. Gymnastics, Tennis, Gymnastics and Softball. If we win one of the next four we will clinch the trophy assuming the winner recieves two points for each win. This has been an even series since it's inception, with the following results:

    04-05, Iowa 11-8
    05-06, I State 13-6
    06-07, Iowa 13-8
    07-08, I State 18-9
    08-09, Iowa 21-4
    09-10, I State leads 12-7

    The team that has home field/court advantage (football, WR, MBB, WBB) has won every year. Would sure love to change that up next year.

    Home team takes it. Funny how that works, especially considering how iowa is so much more dominant in sports than ISU. Wait, what?

    Most Iowa fans do not realize that other sports exist outside of football.

    Really, the series needs to be set up better. MBB, FB, Wrestling, and WBB need to be split between the cites instead of all being at one University each year.

    Most fans of just about every team could care less about other sports outside of football and mens basketball.

    I guess I never noticed that. That is pretty strange that they would set it up like that.

    Could be however cyclone fanatics understand that Womens basketball at ISU is a revenue producer!! This can only be said about maybe 10 programs in the nation. Volleyball has some of the most passionate fans out there and if you were to watch a game you would see that. As my mind is now more effective than my body (thats scary) to do what theses athletes are doing in their sport is amazing. You have to give the athletic dept props for consistantly overachieving similar schools with larger budgets. Overall ISU kicks ***

    No, women's basketball at ISU is NOT a revenue producer. It loses tons of money every year.

    There are fanatics at every school and they in no way constitute a majority of the fanbase. Sports like wrestling, hockey, womens bball, etc have a following and for some schools a very strong following, but in no way does that mean a majority of the fanbase really cares.

    But I would bet not nearly as much as 80% of schools.

    Both Tennessee and Connecticut finished in the red in 08-09. A couple of years ago there was only ONE school that turned a profit in women's hoops.

    WBB may produce revenue, but not nearly enough to offset the expenses.

    Well - Thats no good I thought I heard a couple years ago that ISU Womens BBall was one of only a handfull of programs that turned a profit. O-Well i'll need to hit the drawing board and see what gives. Either way I guess we lose less that everyone else. Glass half full thats a positive.

    We also lose less in wrestling than a lot of other schools, but it's a money pit as well.
