Huskers. Hawks. Hands off Farmageddon.

 

There has been a lot of talk lately about the upcoming Nebraska-Iowa series.  And why not?  Two good teams from neighboring states, playing each other.  That is in no way a common occurrence. 

 

But Nebraska & Iowa’s preferred choice for the name of this game?  Farmageddon.  Bullshit.  That’s Iowa State’s & Kansas State’s name.  Keep your grubby hands away from it.

But no one should really be surprised.  This is what happens when two of the least creative teams in college get together.  Nebraska stole the Cornhusker name from Iowa in 1893 (to be fair, if you were known as the Bugeaters, you would be looking for a new name too).  Iowa stole the Pittsburgh Steelers uniform in 1979.  It was only natural that when Nebraska & Iowa began their series, they wouldn’t be able to come up with their own name.

 

So fine.  Nebraska, Iowa; it’s understandable that you’re so creatively bankrupt that you need to steal the rivalry name of your neighboring teams.  But ISU & KSU have become rather fond of Farmageddon, so as a pre-emptive strike; here are a few names that you can use for your series instead.

 

Ag-pocalypse  (Not as catchy as Farmageddon, but it gets the point across)

Soil-ocaust ( See above)

Corn-Stock  (Like Woodstock.  GET IT?)

Husker Deux  (Deux, for the two teams in the game.  My personal favorite.  Not only pays tribute to an awesome band, but the winner can reclaim the Cornhusker name for the year.  I don’t know if that’s a good thing).

 

These are all GOLD.  Use any one you want, free of charge.  Just leave Farmageddon alone.
