    I have no idea what that's about? I do get annoyed when I watch the Mediacom or Directv commercial, can't remember which one, but the guy is in his hawk gear.

    Re: Toyota of Des Moines

    I think it's referring to a terrible ad that was on during the game with no sound that said the best/favorite/most dependable two teams in the state of Iowa are the Hawkeyes and Toyota of Des Moines. It something along those lines, I forget. I kind of felt the same way when I seen it. I already wouldn't buy a car from TofDM because they pimp Tirrell so much!

    Re: Toyota of Des Moines

    So, a business tried to identify themselves with the Hawks during a Hawkeye football game, probably assuming that most people watching were Hawkeye fans?

    Sounds like a classic advertising strategy.

    I didn't really pay attention to that commercial when it was on, just thought it was kinda awkwardly silent.

    They still support Marty Tirrell, thats enough of a reason for me to stay away.
