    I like that KSU is routinely scheduled as a rival game on last weekend. Two similar programs, and WVU rivalry is too forced.

    Anyone open to a 2 year swing back through Arrowhead for Farmageddon?

    College football is made to be played on campus.

    I don’t love where Arrowhead is located. Great for tailgating but so is JTS.

    Arrowhead was a great idea but neither fanbase really embraced it. K State is probably my favorite road trip, mainly bc its one of the closest (and relatively cheap tickets) but I like BSFS and have always had good experiences with their fans, so I like the idea of keeping things the way they are.

    Playing it last keeps a rivalry feel

    I like it being on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.

    Home/Home on Thanksgiving weekend gets my vote.

    I'm still a little miffed about how the combination of KC and conference realignment resulted in KSU not having to play a road game against us for over half a decade.

    Not to hijack the thread, but I still can't understand why the schools haven't created a trophy for this game yet. It seems like such a no-brainer that both fanbases would embrace.

    All but a select few: Florida/Georgia, OU/TX, Army/Navy (Philly/NY), and I'm now in the camp of liking Arkansas/aTm at Jerry World.

    I like Arrowhead. And I think a pre con game there would be fun with another P5 but conference games belong on campus, imo.

    ISU/NU or ISU/Mizz at Arrowhead would be pretty cool.

    We could locate the Pewter family and re gift it for this rivalry. [​IMG]

    Agree.....at the time thought it was kind of cool, but wouldn't want to lose a home game.

    The atmosphere was pretty dull from the one I went to....like the energy a true home atmosphere can have.

    I would be open to having it earlier......mainly to save a cold date for OU/TX and other southern schools.

    Screw arrowhead. At least ames and Manhattan get to keep the hotel revenue for the games. Missouri has no affiliation e the big 12

    There are only 3 regular season games in college football that should be held at a neutral site every year: Red River, the Cocktail Party, and Army-Navy. Every other game should be hosted at one of the participating schools home stadium. The atmosphere of neutral site games just can't stand up to what you get on campus.

    Keep it on campus.

    This game isn’t notable. Playing KSU feels a bit like playing UNI. It’s damn embarrassing to have lost 11 in a row to them.

    Trophies seem to be going out of fashion. Don’t hear nearly as much about them as even 10 years ago. I’m sure the teams themselves still really care but seems like they are fading out of the public consciousness in the modern world.

    It would be sweet if it was an actual tractor. Winning team's mascot would get to drive it out on the field for the next year's game. It'd get everyone riled up!

    Get John Deere or whoever to donate an old-school - working 1917 tractor (The year both schools started playing each other.) Slap on some ISU and K-State logos on it, boom. Farmageddon!
