    My recollection was, and you have to use your imagination a bit; but the story goes if you look at the components of the logo it spells; fry. And understanding his ego, and that of all eiu fans, it's not a stretch. They haven't caught it because they probably can't spell fry.

    My guess is money. He still receives royalties for it.

    He took a dump on a piece of paper and then folded it in half. When he unfolded the paper:

    He had some yellow runs but the rest is history.

    He saw the guy with the logo on his jacket and stole it? Not following your logic here.

    I was hoping it was true so that I could use it to mock Hok friends. They hate the Fred Flintstone comparison. The more ammo, the better.

    I remember when the new Hawkeye logo first came out and someone on campus created an "Iowa Turkeyes" shirt using a modified version of the logo with added turkey gobbler.

    I had that t-shirt for many years but it's since gotten lost. I wish I still had it.

    Anybody else remember those? We need to recreate that magic!
