    It will be nice to have the upset of the Century with that being there.

    It would be awesome to see the players run over and smash it, right in front of Weedens face.

    They'll have it on the field for the broadcast since OSU is a NC contender. They did the same thing for the Oregon/Stanford game last Saturday. Hopefully it jinxes them like it did Stanford!

    I'm hoping that trophy was sterilized, considering it's the same trophy...

    I say when we win somebody goes and steals the BCS trophy..hold it ransom until the BCS pays for all their **** ups against us in football and especially basketball vs Michigan St...save the money up and bowl in the end zone...I mean if somebody can steal beer from a cooler this isn't out of the realm of possibility.

    I still laugh at that. All the uproar the original family trophy caused, then we go and break the interim trophy, that's just classic. I am literally laughing about it right now, as I type this. Seeing that thing in two pieces floating above the crowd is right up there in my favorite Cyclone moments for sure.

    i think its a little premature to bring it to Ames, I think ISU is 2-3 seasons away from competing for the national champtionship.
