Replacing the Tiger - Sooner Peace Pipe




I'd like to preface this entire thing by saying that A) I realize any chance of replacing the trophy is very low because I don't know who really cares at the school and B) with proposed realignment, we may never play Oklahoma again.

The Tiger - Sooner Peace Pipe.  The Sooners hold a 40 game lead in this "rivalry".  The Pawnee peace pipe of Chief White Eagle was donated by a 1923 Mizzou grad for the rivalry.  But, it's been missing for some time and OU (who held it last) can't find the pipe anywhere.  Should we replace the Tiger - Sooner Peace Pipe; and if so, what should we replace it with?

 

Why we should replace the trophy... well, that's simple.  Missouri and Oklahoma have been playing each other for a long time.  72 years.  Not as long as some of our other rivalries, to be sure, but it's important to remember the history behind the matchup.  Secondly, I think trophy games are cool.  Maybe not as cool as when Minnesota plays Wisconsin for the giant axe (simply because watching 3 dudes run around the field with a giant axe is cool), but trophy games add more to the rivalry.  Didn't you all want to be able to place the Missouri - Nebraska Bell in the trophy case FOREVER?  Alas, we didn't.  Finally, in this area of litigation and overly politically correct bullcrap, yes, I imagine people would cry forever that we were 'demeaning' the progressive and overachieving nation of the Pawnee.

 

What should we replace the trophy with?  I frankly don't have a clue.  What do Missouri and Oklahoma have in common?  A meth trailer?  A giant cow patty?  How about a giant stainless steel milk jug with enameled logos for the two schools, one on each side?  Our players could have been victoriously drinking the milk last year amidst the bedlam in Faurot Field.  Does any other school play for a milk jug?  (and I am aware of the Little Brown Jug).  What else came to mind?  How about a giant (fake) brass artillery shell?  Fort Sill, where I believe the Army Artillery School is based, is in Oklahoma.  We all know about the howitzer at Faurot.  So we could play for a giant bullet!

 

Anyone else have ideas?  Seriously.  We should hook up with Crimson and Cream and present our final proposal to both schools.  Save the B12!!!
