    Breaking News: Toledo Players Busted for Crisco on Uniforms

    Just Kidding!!!

    Sorry, I'm just trying to come up with some rationale for how every player on the kickoff team, the trainers, and managers couldn't tackle Parmalee. This seems to work.

    Greased up deaf guy may as well have been running that ball as Parmalee... Our players had about as much luck holding him as the employees of the Happy-Go-Lucky toy factory had at catching greased up deaf guy


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Makes as much sense as anything else.

    I think they might have put some on the field as well. Things got better as the game progressed, but to start we were slipping like we were on ice.

    On the radio, Ben Bruns said we may have had the wrong shoes for the field. Apparently Toledo's had larger and more nubs on them.

    It was hard to tell, but we thought as much. And wondered if they switched shoes at half.

    For those who couldn't see, that turf resembled our old stuff back in the 80's. Looked like linoleum. Not the nicer, thicker turf like what is in Bergstrom. Too bad they didn't realize that in pregame. Traction hurt us on a couple plays.

    Fortunately nobody got hurt. Or at least I hope not given what WartKnight said in another thread about the possibility of Bass being injured.

    Maybe our staff including equipment managers have a lot more to learn than we thought.

    Would Dan have made the shoe mistake? Just asking.

    I would have thought our managers would have talked to Toledo people before leaving and made an adjustment on the shoes. Without the right shoes, it is hard to catch 220 pound Parmalee.

    Is our kickoff team makeup fairly slow? They looked slow against Iowa. That last play saw the runner easily cut back and forth across the field several times. Not sure I saw a runner go for 200 yards and not make it any further than the 30 by our last tackler. Maybe we need better shoes to let us run better. Michael? Send us some freebies now.

    I wasn't at the game, so I can't speak to the field conditions. But reading this thread suddenly gave me a huge SHIVER up my back. A lot of it sounds like stuff Squawkeye fans would be saying after a loss.

    I don't know about this wrong shoe business. Is there an NCAA rule that says you can only bring one pair of shoes per player on road games?

    I don't think there's anything that prevents you from changing shoes. In fact, one of the guys sitting with me thought they were wearing different shoes after the half.

    In the past, we've seen players changing shoes and/or cleats on the sidelines during the game.

    These would have gone well with our uniforms. Well maybe the color would be a little off, but that would be for a different thread.

    I thought I read something a couple years ago that Nebraska has 17 pairs of football shoes for every player. One for every type of field that they could encounter. I know we don't have the football budget of Nebraska, but I hope we have more than one pair each.

    Really, that is the only logical reason. After watching the return again last night, I realized just how hilarious it was....if it happened to another team, that is.
