Does US Bank give coin to ISU or just the bank?
I'm pulling for the Drunken Stanford Tree.
Dang it. Now I'll pay no attention to it like everyone else.
Next step for Cy: ESPN commercial
That would be sweet.
Is US Bank a sponsor in any way? If not, I'm not sure why it would matter.
I would love to see that!:yes:
Well, that doesn't make any sense. I don't care about the mascot contest, but this is a dumb reason not to participate. If ISU is just a customer to US Bank, ISU doesn't owe them anything.
Cy tacking Scott Van Pelt on an ESPN commercial would be fun to watch!
I blame Pollard.
Does US Bank have a problem with this?
I do, wrong logo. :jimlad:
Wow this is really stupid, free pub for the school and free money for the squad when Cy wins
Iowa did the same thing a few years back when Herky won the write in vote
I really don't see how this should be much of an issue considering there aren't any Capital One banks within 1000 miles of campus... :huh:
I remember when Norwest used to have advertising on the football scoreboard. The dark green and blue Norwest logo didn't always show up very well on the black background. The scoreboard would read, "Cyclone Stadium The Home of Free Checking". Given the controversies at the time, it is pretty funny now.
Has to be the only college mascot actually escorted off of the basketball court in handcuffs for boozing in the history of college basketball.
Unless it's changed in the last year or two, USBank and Iowa State had a massive agreement related to ISU Cards (ID). USBank paid a hefty sum to link the ISU Card to a bank account. As part of the agreement they are allowed to advertise during new student orientation, and would pack Beardshear with workers to get students to sign up while they waited in line to get ID.
USBank used to own the ATMs on campus as well, but this changed three or four years ago (now owned by the Greater Iowa Credit Union).
nonetheless this sucks
We could still get him into the write-in competition!
I doubt ISU simply uses USB for basic checking......
Usually if you are a business, in this case a good sized business, you try to keep your banker happy, keep the money flowing. Again, I doubt that ISU gets more from USB than just a checking service. And in this day and age, you'd want to keep that bank happy as bank relationships that supply large amounts of capital to you are not as easy as just a year ago.
