New Event for the Cy-Hawk Trophy?

[Bumped, because if you've never personally witnessed a high-level athlete binge drink, you have been deprived.--OPS]

You probably missed the story about an ISU football player getting picked up for public intox.  Here's the story from the Register.  As my friend, an ISU alum, put it, "Of course you missed it.  It's about ISU football.  No one pays attention to that."  True dat.

However, in light of a certain head coach's son getting picked up on a similar violation earlier, it leads me to wonder if we shouldn't put a new event in the Cy-Hawk Trophy Competition.

An ISU fan proposed an extra two points for the school with the fewest alcohol related off-season incidents.  Pfffft.  Whatever.  That does nothing but ignore the problem and offers no solution.  I say that we should embrace the problem and find a workable (and profitable) solution!

I say it's time to take the "problem" out of "drinking problem."  Let's just embrace the fact that there's not much to do in Iowa in late winter/ early spring and allow our student athletes to use that time in a way that can bring a new level of glory to their respective school!

 

But not only would this bring a new level of glory to the state of Iowa, it would also bring some extra revenue.  To the best of my research, neither the NCAA nor the Big Ten has endorsed Beer Pong as an official sport.  Therefore, if I understand things correctly, (which I certainly don't) either school might be able to secure a separate sponsorship from Anheuser-Busch, Miller Brewing, or possibly even Lone Star (given Hayden Fry's fantastic work at Iowa).  It's almost like being Notre Dame and being able to negotiate a separate television deal.  This profit-stream doesn't even account for the specialized plastic cup sales or officially logo'ed ping pong balls that are sure to follow.

Help me turn these frowns upside down!  Send an e-mail to Hy-Vee today and demand a beer-pong event for the Cy-Hawk!!
