    Let's not go back to these days!!

    I was looking at some old photos of mine and thought I would post this one. I'm almost positive this is 1987 versus Oklahoma. That year OK would go undefeated in the Big 8 for the third straight year. Anyway, the photo isn't very good, but take a look at how reved up the crowd is, especially with the action on the goal line right in front of them. Well, just wanted to let everyone know how much more fun it is to be in the stadium these days. I think the fans are doing a great job and hope we keep it up!!

    That is funny.. no one in the stands, and they have better things to do than watch football. I guess it puts this in perspective.

    notice one of them is eve laughing prob not even paying attention to the game..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I think the best part about this photo is all the jean-jackets in the stands. Almost as trendy as the sweat-shirt tucked into the snow pants look of a certain poster.

    Hey, that is the award winning snow pants photo buddy. Give the snowpants the respect they deserve.

    Re: Let's not go back to these days!!

    I think I was at that game. It was seriously ugly. 56-3 comes to mind, but I could be off on that. And it seems to me OU was ranked way up there. Most people were in the parking lot drinking, I think.

    Is that the game where the OU starters had their pads off in the 3rd quarter and were eating hot dogs from stadium vendors?

    The best is the dude above the Oklahoma player. The one with his back turned to the field wearing what I'm going to guess is an Ocean Pacific t-shirt. Maybe even a Spuds McKenzie shirt. Either way, that is a great pic! Keep em coming if you have more.

    Must have been the uniforms that sparked the crowd's attention.

    You nailed the score - I just looked it up in the media guide.

    Acid washed jean jacket and Op shirts. Sigh..memories. Feathered hair and a comb sticking out of the back jeans pocket. God I miss the 80s.
