    Winning this week would be bigger than any other win vs the Hawks

    A win this week would do a lot for the overall pride around the Cyclones, the only thing worse than pending realignment is the possibility of resulting Apathy from a legion of Loyal Fans based on something our University really has no say in. While most on this board don't seem to expect to win, I see no reason to expect to lose. Recent results haven't been good against the Hawks, but this would be a HUGE win for these Cyclones and put them in position to compete for a bowl and take a big step in the program in year 3. Not the end of the world if the team comes up short, but way too premature to write this one off. Go Cylones, get the Hawks and at least for a week, lets get the focus back on how great it is to be a Cyclone!

    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    If you think this would be the biggest win ever against the hawks then you weren't around in 1998. There will never be another bigger unless we let iowa go on another 15 year streak.

    I agree with the OP, with 1998 as the exception. I've mentioned to family and friends that I think a win would be the biggest since '98. With the lingering cloud of conference realignment and the threat of a burgeoning Iowa-Nebraska rivalry, this game is HUGE in terms of in-state relevance and pride.

    I was at that game, and I was sure the clones were going to loose before the opening kickoff. As a matter of fact, I missed the opening kickoff because I was partying with a bunch of Iowa Co-eds that came by to drink from the keg of beer the ISU Alumni Association had bought. I heard the crowd roar as I was passing through the concourse and assumed Iowa had already scored.........

    Not to detract from the 98 game, but I was a pretty big fan of the win in 05.

    Re: Winning this week would be bigger than any other win vs the Hawks

    ok, biggest game may be a stretch, there are several big games the Cyclones won including at the time the series resumed, 1998, Seneca's comeback etc...BUT THIS WOULD BE A VERY BIG WIN...and I hope we get it, it would do a ton to build the team's confidence and change the tone around Cyclone Athletics...

    If we want to go to a bowl, we better win a home game. That is big.

    Agree.
    That win in 1998 happened to fall right on my birthday. What an excellent day that was.
