    Wow, that's severe, just like everyone thought.

    This team should look at Austen as their rallying point this week. Win it for the fans, win it for the seniors, but really, win it Austen Arnaud. You look at that write-up about the knee, and you've got a guy who gave his all literally until and during his last play.

    They need to come out fired up to do this for him, since he can't now. Win this thing for Austen.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    just read this in the daily.... really too bad for Austen.

    I wont say I was ALWAYS behind AA but this season he showed me in the last few games that he is capable of being a D1 QB.

    Ive worked with Austen and he couldnt be a nicer guy who never put himself on a pedestal.

    Thanks for your time Austen

    Depressing. I really hope he gets a good, long standing ovation on Saturday from the 25,000 in attendance.

    I know he had talked about hoping to try out for the next level, I'm guessing he'll still be in therapy when the combine comes around though. What's the timeframe for recovery on something like this?

    Can one of you doctors explain what a "total knee reconstruction" means exactly? Just curious.

    I don't quite see the need to take a pot shot at the fans in a thread about a great player and student having his knee blown out.

    Luckily it doesn't take a good knee to help out JT and to support his teammates, and we all know Austen is great at that.

    I'm not a doctor, but I'd guess it means he tore both the ACL and MCL.

    Austen Arnaud: I am proud to say that I was able to watch you play Quarterback for Iowa State. You are truly the epitome of what it means to be a Cylcone. I only wish that we as fans (myself included) were behind you and gave as much to you through our support as you did to us through your efforts on the field.

    Yours truly,

    Cyclone Nation


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Ugh...can't believe we'll never see AA with 9 guys on his back stretching for the first down again. The whole thing just saddens me. But I'm having a hard time believing this team won't come out on Saturday with it's *** on fire..I think we've got a shot on Saturday.

    Thanks again AA!!!

    Really sad about the knee. Wow. But really uplifting on the quote from Rhoads. AA "is that kind of selfless person".

    AA is ALL Class. A Truly great Cyclone. Thanks AA for the great memories.

    Wow....I can't express how sorry I feel for Austen Arnaud. What a horrible way to end your college career after battling through such adversity for the past 5 years. Austen gave his all to the team, the university, the fans and is the epitimy of what a true Cyclone is all about. I actually named my son Austen, spelled it with the E and he will definitely be wearing his #4 ISU jersey on Saturday. I would love nothing more for the team to go out there and win this last one for Austen Arnaud. LETS GO CYCLONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
