(@pfac51) December 26, 2017 ANSWER: Awesome to hear from you again, ManfroWhen comparing trophies, beauty is in the observer’s eyeFrankly, I think the Pinstripe Bowl Trophy that Iowa won a few weeks ago against Boston College was about the coolest bowl trophy out thereOf course it carries nowhere near the importance of Iowa’s Orange Bowl Trophy following the 2009 season, but the Pinstripe Bowl Trophy is well builtIt contains columns reminiscent of Yankee Stadium and it’s named for George Steinbrenner, who wouldn’t have stood for a trophy like the old-fashioned Cy-Hawk (1977-2010)There’s no recency bias associated with it; I think it’s a cool trophy. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz holds up the Insight Bowl Trophy after a 27-24 win against Missouri in 2010(Christian Petersen/Getty Images) As for the ugliest, I’m going to go with the Insight Bowl Trophy from Iowa’s 27-24 win against Missouri in 2010It was a strange symbol for a bowl (much better for a company) and the trophy looks like a giant, chocolate cucumber with a fishtail trapped inside a backgammon boardOf course, the trophy itself is a footnote to the actual victory, which ended a depressing Iowa season on a good note. The most meaningful bowl trophy in recent memory is the Orange Bowl Trophy, which occupies prime real estate inside the Iowa football complexIt originally housed real oranges but fake ones in recent years make the trophy stand out more. The best trophy at the football complex is Floyd of RosedaleThat 98-pound bronze pig has floated between Iowa City and Minneapolis every year since 1936 and it remains the most iconic of college football’s traveling trophies.
