WVU/Iowa State: The Riot Bowl Trophy - We Need Your Help

As many of you know, the folks over at the Iowa State blog Wide Right & Natty Lite have dubbed the upcoming annual series between Iowa State and West Virginia as the Riot Bowl, due to propensities of the two fanbases to consume mass quantities of beer and burn things (them: dumpsters, us: couches). We here at the Smoking Musket and the folks over at WRNL figured the only way to make this quasi-official was to have a virtual trophy to be displayed on the front page of the victor's blog. This is where you, our loyal readers and contributors come in.

We are asking for submissions of your fan created images (photoshopped and/or from scratch) which we will then put to a vote and the winner will get to display the "trophy" on their front page for the year, just like the Paul Bunyan Axe, the Golden Boot and the like, get passed back and forth between winning schools.

BONUS: We've also just decided to include a loser's trophy possibility to be displayed on the losing blog's page. So, if you're extra creative, we can use those too.

Use your imagination. Get creative and animate it if you like (we're still working on the logistics of where to post these and not sure if animation works on our side bars). We'd like to have creations to evaluate in the next week or so. So, get to work people!! Submit your images in the comments below, via email or @SmokingMusket and @WideRtNattyLt on Twitter.

Winning submissions will get an "Ames Riot" shirt (as seen on the Shutdown Fullback) from WRNL and an as yet to be determined token of our appreciation as well.
