    What does everyone think of the new billboard going up in Iowa City. A buddy of mine send me this email. The Hawks are reacting harsh!

    As much as I hate to say it, that is really funny. Of course we could also make some billboards that say something like;

    "Iowa Basketball, our convicts can beat your boy scouts any day"

    "Steve Alford, anybody see my wigg?"

    "Iowa State 23, Iowa 3".

    I know they weren&#39;t that funny but it was a spur of the moment thing:)

    [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] Seems funny to me that they would put up a billboard in Iowa City that blatantly (besides the words) advertises Cyclone athletics. How dumb could they be to put up a billboard with not only the ISU logo but with a picture of our team holding the Cy-Hawk trophy in the nest of Hawkeyes.



    Then again, the Hawks are not the brightest bunch. It&#39;s pry the most creative thing they could think of. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

    I find it to be funny in that there is built in irony. The poster is attempting to slam ISU. But the picture shows ISU with the Cy-Hawk Trophy. Do you really slam your oppenent by showing your opponent with a trophy proving we won head-to-head. That seems really stupid of them.

    I&#39;m not sure if you get it or not, but the picture in the original post is just a photoshop of the ISU billboard installed in Cedar Rapids.

    Oooohhh.. No, I didn&#39;t get it. I thought this was an original design. I never saw what our design looked like. Still doesn&#39;t make it funny to me.

    I&#39;m going to move this to a different forum, considering it&#39;s not real and all. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Any ISU fan that wants to count what we did two years ago as some type of conference championship needs help.

    Exactly. You&#39;ll never, ever hear me sing praises about that Big 12 North co-champ "title" that we stumbled into.

    I would rather forget about how we gave away the outright title in a cold, miserable game against Missouri.

    Yep- have to admit this gave me a good laugh, but even negative advertising in this case is still advertising&#33; seeing Cy and the ISU logo in Iowa City is comical? Did this really go up or was this just some Iowa dork with a degree in graphic design who doctored up an image?



    With this being said, I must say, the kinnick press box renovation is fairly impressive in size and structure, and it will make it all the more when ISU goes into that stadium in sept. and kicks their gold and black @&#036;&#036;&#39;&#036; and their posh newly renovated stadium. I hope to see a LOT of red in the stands on ESPN that day.... make it like when NU played at Iowa in &#39;99.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
