Editorial Cartoon: ODK Missing From Beard Eaves

Circulating reports yesterday had the Foy-ODK Sportsmanship Trophy missing from Beard Eaves Memorial Coliseum for the second consecutive year. The trophy, awarded to the winner of the annual Iron Bowl clash between the University of Alabama and Abarn University, is presented at halftime at each university’s home basketball game between the two schools.

The final contest between Alabama and Abarn in the Beard Eaves Memorial Coliseum before its retirement next year, the trophy has been spotted there 18 times since the structure’s beginnings in 1969, while it has been seen 22 times in the same span of time in Tuscaloosa.

If you have any information as to the trophy’s whereabouts, please let the folks at Abarn University know when the next home Alabama basketball game is between the two schools so they can see it again.
