    North Texas

    Fennelly was there and tweets "North Texas 24 Indiana 21!!! Coach Mac gets his first win at North Texas!!

    Even better, it was a B1G team.

    It's awesome that Fennelly and Mac are such good friends that Fennelly goes to games like that.

    Sweet! Way to go Mac! Big 10 had wins today, too, but didn't look especially strong in some of them. Glad to see the little guys take one from them!

    Re: North Texas

    Watching some highlights from the game, and on the final Indiana TD, I think they scored when North Texas had a defensive player without a shoe (and who may have fallen down around the time of the snap).

    The guy has a knack for beating Big 10 schools whose names start with "I".


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: North Texas

    Oh....my....god....Coach Fennelly not only went to a North Texas game, he was TWEETING? He is such an embarrassment to the program.

    Remember this thread?

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...coach-mac.html

    I thought we were all supposed to spit and kick something every time we heard McCarney's name if we were good cyclones?

    Congrats to NT. Points and Laughs to Indiana

    I watched the last 10 minutes of it (on the game clock) after I got bored of Florida and Kentucky on ESPN3.

    Yeah, definitely a few flashbacks to some of our collapses in the McCarney era there... I loved Coach Mac to death, and he put Iowa State on the map as a football school (to whatever tiny degree), but giving up a scoring drive in 1:00 in the fourth, onside kick mayhem, etc. definitely came up in that North Texas-Indiana game. I'd seen that sort of stuff too many times from Iowa State when he was still here. Way too much of a "here we go again" feeling in watching it and wanting to see a North Texas take down a vaunted Big 10 school.

    I'm glad to see that our new coach has his spirit without his bad luck, though.

    Re: North Texas

    I was watching last few minutes of this game. The big difference between Coach Mac and Coach Rhoads is "play not to loose" and "play to win"

    Wow how pathetic in the bottom of the Big Ten his year with Indiana, Purdue and Minnesota? Of course Iowa has all three on its schedule and dodges Wisconsin, OSU and Illinois.

    Of course. Pure luck. The Big Televen struggles this year.

    Well, here's to hoping Nebby/Michigan/MSU and Penn St beat 'em. (And, I don't need someone to chime in here and say that if iowa does better it is good for us. Who cares, all I want to do is see them lose each and every week.)
