    Your top 10 ISU football plays

    Spin-off from recent thread.

    You may do it in 10-to-1 countdown form if you find it more compelling.

    I'll have a think a while on this myself. I'm curious if anyone has a No. 1 other than "the expected."

    In terms of what it meant, I'd put Jesse Smith's game sealing pick in Lincoln ahead of The Run.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Your top 10 ISU football plays

    Like I said in the other thread, I only go back to the early 90's (and there weren't a lot of highlights in the 90's outside of TD), but here are mine:

    1. Seneca's Run vs TT, 2002.
    2. Billups' PR in Insight Bowl vs Pitt 2000.
    3. Seiler's run vs Nebraska 1992.
    4. Curvey's pick and rumbling score vs CU 2005 (tornado game).
    5. JJ Moses reverse at iowa 2000.
    6. Danielsen's TD off the slant vs OSU 2000.
    7. Jessie Smith's int. at Nebraska 2009.
    8. Seneca's pass to Whitver out of his own endzone at iowa 2002.
    9. Troy Davis's long run vs Mizzou in 1995...not that impressive in itself, but more of a total body of work.
    10. Lamarcus Hicks pick six vs iowa 2005.

    Re: Your top 10 ISU football plays

    I'm trying to come up with some differences from TejasClone but would only add that the whole Tech v. ISU game from 2010 was awesome.

    The first time I've ever seen ISU put up 52 points against a team from the South and that includes baylor. AND, Tech was a bowl team last year.

    Johnson's Kansas Juke from 2010 also was sweet.

    Also the come from behind win at Iowa with Seneca when down like 28 - 7 at the half. Not a play, but still amazing.

    How about:
    1. Lenz TD catch vs. Texas 2010
    2. Micheal O'Connell interception vs. Texas while wearing a cast on one hand, in the end zone 2010
    3. Leonard Johnson tip toe the out of bounds interception vs. Texas 2010
    4. Collin Franklin TD reception vs. Texas Tech 2010
    5. Shontrelle Johnson Juke Run vs. Kansas 2010
    6. Tuba Rubin TD Rumble.
    7. Tackle Scott Haughton running for a TD in 2009 vs Missouri. It was an awesome trick play.
    8. Jerome Tiller wobbler to Jake Williams Hail Cyclones TD pass vs. Nebraska 2009
    9. Brandtner first down run fake punt vs. Nebraska 2009
    10. Mahoney onside kick vs. Texas 2010. Textbook kick-pass right into ISU players hands after going 10 yards, had everyone in stadium faked out.

    Re: Your top 10 ISU football plays

    Gotta add some others for consideration:

    1. Tim Dobbins hits vs. Nebraska at Nebraska.
    2. Berryman has to have a few somewhere that were memorable...right?
    3. Sacks by the 2005 DL - remember any that stick out?
    4. Terran Benton kerpow! hit on Texas WR 2010

    Re: Your top 10 ISU football plays

    I'd have to say the play against Iowa where the LB (Steen?) picked a pass off that would have won them the game and then fumbled has to be on there. And even though it didn't work out for us Seneca coming up just short against FSU has to be up there, that was one of the most exciting moments in ISU football. Oh, and Meyer to Bates.

    I rate that pretty high too since it was a huge slap on the face of an already downed opponent.

    I cant remember who we played, but I think it was the first game of 2006. Todd Blythe's one handed TD catch in the 3rd OT.
