    Troy Davis

    It was nice to see him dedicated into the Cyclone Hall of Fame. The fans gave him a nice cheer. He was really fun to watch. As many times as he carried the ball, I don't remember him ever getting any injuries.

    Re: Troy Davis

    It was nice that Troy and Darren were both outside hitting tail-gates before the game. I'm sure it was nice for them to see a full house, even if it wasn't with a good outcome. Man, so many fun memories of watching Troy play.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Troy Davis

    I'm sure Troy has a lot of memories that remind him of tonight's game.

    It was funny because there were a couple of 19 yr old girls sitting in the seats next to me tonight. The regulars couldn't make it so they gave them the tickets. When the crowd got loud for Troy one of them looked at the other and asked, "Who is that?" I looked at them and told them who it was. They both said "Oh." I know they still didn't know who he is. God, I feel old.

    I've taken the Wonderlic, it is a b*tch. I don't think I scored as low as Troy, though.

    Re: Troy Davis

    If I remember right, all the people inducted had the medals so I'm guessing it something to do with the induction.

    You think that's bad -- I had a few girls in the row behind me think that they intercepted the ball everytime we punted to them. "What! They intercepted us again?! WTF, this is stupid! I'm so glad daddy paid for my tickets."

    Re: Troy Davis

    For running for 2000 yards 2 years in a row he was not fast. He was quick but he would get run down on 30-40 plus yard runs. I don't think he got tackled for a loss
    very often, but he didn't alot of long runs either.

    Re: Troy Davis

    He played more with heart and less with talent as a former wrestler. His brother Darren probably had more talent, but he could not match Troy for fight.
