Sommaire

Origine du nom de l'équipe

Le surnom de l'équipe remonte à 1895, année marquée par de nombreux cyclones[1]. Cependant à l'époque les connaissances en météorologie étaient moindres, aujourd'hui on leur aurait donné le nom de tornades. Cet évènement particulier va alors influencer le surnom de l'équipe universitaire. Lors d'une rencontre Iowa State bat Northwestern Wildcats par 36-0, le lendemain le Chicago Tribune titre Iowa Cyclone Devastates Evanstontown. Depuis le surnom est resté remplaçant leur surnom originel, les Cardinals.
