    "The Kick" like "The Run"?

    I was just thinking about this. We all know about "The Run" but would we consider this "The Kick" so that when anyone said it, they knew exactly what we were talking about? At least among ISU fans?

    If it would have been close to 50 yards - perhaps.

    But it was a 28 yard field goal. The big part of this is that it came from a guy that has missed all of his pressure kicks.

    Doesn't compare to The Run at all.

    Agreed.

    If the kick was into the wind from 50+ yards on one of the hash marks then you have a valid argument. But the field goal wasn't much more than an extra point attempt in the middle of the field. It was still a very clutch kick that was big for our program.

    It was "the catch" that set up the kick.

    I showed "The Run" to my girlfriend for the first time on youtube. She had never seen it. She is a big football fan and made me replay it about 4 times while saying wow the whole time.
