    The Cy-hawk series, developed by the Hy-Vee people, confronts this rivalry with great civility. That is healthy. But...that commercial they use always sends me to the 'fridge. I do not like that commercial. (where the allegiance of the young married couple is split) Please tell me they air that same commercial on all hawkeye sporting events that are on TV. I've never watched one, but I trust they torture the eiu fans with it as well.
    Next year I'm hoping they'll have two or three different commercials -- just for the sake of diversity.

    I just want to smack that kid...on the hawkeye side of his face.

    I think it's the lack of energy in the commercial that makes no sense to me. I do think the Cy-hawk series is fun and harmless. Kudos to Hy-Vee for that.

    The commercial itself is fine - but it's old. We've had the series finishing up the third year now? And one commercial.

    A little new material.

    They need to take a lesson from Off-Campus Apparrel and ESPN does for theirs where the theme of the story is how it looks "wrong" to be with someone from their rival school. I think when Off Campus was still around they had some good ISU/Iowa ones and also threw in a little UNI too. ESPN has their Michigan and OSU commerical for example.

    I like the Iowa/Iowa State commercial. If I don't end up with a die hard Iowa State fan, ending up with a die hard Hawkeye fan would be fun. Better than someone who doesn't care either way.

    It was fine the first time, but now its time to get something new in there to be ready to market end of the summer
