    Who possibly could they chose? ISU has no celebrity fans/alums, they have no high profile NFLers or even NBAers.

    The mayor is now a head coach at Nebraska, so he won’t do it. Every other prominent Iowan is a Hawkeye.

    I mean they could have Troy davis, rosenfels, or Seneca, but those are all fringe guys.

    I can’t see hoiberg, who is the current head coach at another power 5 school right down the road, dressing up in Iowa state gear and flying into Ames.

    I think it would be great if it was Dan Gable. Nobody on the planet is more tied to both schools like he is. But that opens the possibility of him picking Iowa which ESPN won't do.

    My guess is that it will be Seneca Wallace.

    If they go with an ISU connection maybe Sage? Otherwise I'm guessing it'll be someone like Kevin Costner. Tie in the upcoming Field of Dreams game next year.

    -That homecoming queen who was under 200 lbs (she got a tapeworm in Cabo over spring break)

    -The first guy to set a dumpster ablaze at Veishea which would inspire the football program to emulate that standard

    -The owner of the car lot that keeps the football team rolling in 80’s Station wagons

    -The ghost of Jamie Pollard’s sense of irony and shame

    Many good choices

    Ah I always forget about them. I don't know much about them other than they're from Iowa. Are they sports guys?

    Maybe but who outside of Iowa and true wrestling fanatics, actually know who he is?

    Troy Davis, brought him back for half time special recognition, arrested later that night. Only in Lames.

    Don’t know. Just throwing thoughts out.

    Marvel Universe is tied to Disney — so, no, it wouldn’t happen even if it was more than just spit-balling
