Iowa State has clinched their third HyVee Cy-Hawk trophy.
Given that Iowa City has every advantage- Huge budget, a win-at-all-costs mentality compared to Ames, 3:1 fan advantage, adoring media, etc, etc, Iowa State should never win this trophy. Never.
The fact that they are running .500 in this "contest" is hysterical, and shows who knows how to get more bang for their buck.
Considering ISU did this the hard way- by losing the football game, and the 3 points that go with it- is even more remarkable.
Granted, Iowa fan doesn't care about this thing. As long as they thump ISU in football and wrasslin', all is well.
It's still fun to win the unwinnable.
