    They beat Michigan in 1985, when Iowa was ranked #1 and Michigan was ranked #2.

    How many times have the Cyclones been ranked #1?

    My intention is not to diss the Cyclones. I was just curious.

    Can we stop comparing us to the hawks everytime we do something well?

    Is that the same 1985 that just about every current NCAA player other than Brandon Weeden was born after?

    Difference between the OP's question and your question is quite obvious: The OP didn't know the answer to his before posting.

    Just more typical tavernhawk bullflop that ensures the fact that if i ever get diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, i will not be going alone.

    Who cares? If they have, good for them. If not, I don't care. We did.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Not wanting to diss the hawks, yet make this thread very much about them.

    How about how many times has ANY TEAM outside the top 25, top 30, beat the #2 team....

    lol. This is like starting a sentence with "no offense but..."

    You just know that the end of the sentence is going to offend you.

    Does that mean it didn't happen?

    I'm not sure about times they've beat the #2 team, but they still have beat some top teams in the country.

    2008: They beat #3 Penn State
    2009: They beat #5 Penn State @ Penn State, and #9 Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl.
    2010: They beat #5 Michigan State, and #14 Missouri in the Insight Bowl.

    Oh, and they finished 2009 ranked #7 in the country. I'm not taking anything away from ISU's win, it was a huge one. But if the OP was "just curious" like he said, a simple google search could've taken care of that.
