They didn’t explain what the cow was — it just kinda walked around — but Iowa people sure hated it. Just listen to them booing.

I’ll never quite understand why people get this angry about the Stanford band. They’re acting dumb, yes … but they’re college kids acting dumb. And they do this to everybody.

Is it a little insulting to stereotype Iowans as farmers? Maybe, but, I mean, Iowa has a sticker that reminds us that America Needs Farmers on its helmet. Nobody is trying to hide the fact that many Iowans have farms. The biggest mistake they made is going with a cow when it would’ve been a lot more accurate to go with corn.
