    ISU love in ESPN Top 20

    LSU Tigers, Arkansas Razorbacks prep for Game of the Century Junior - ESPN

    17. BMOP (Big Man On Podium)

    "I really didn't know what to do. I just threw my hands up, started yelling, started screaming and running around a little bit. My mind kind of went blank."
    -- Iowa State wide receiver Darius Reynolds, on his reaction to the Cyclones' upset of Oklahoma State (courtesy of Andrew Logue, Des Moines Register).


    11. BMOS (Big Man On Sideline)

    Paul Rhoads, Iowa State
    Rhoads would be the first to tell you that it helps when Oklahoma State gives the ball away five times. But Iowa State, in its upset of the then-No. 2-ranked Cowboys, took advantage of those mistakes and didn't shrink in the moment.
    The Cyclones still have Oklahoma and K-State on their schedule, but at least the win against Oklahoma State makes them bowl eligible. For a program that has been to one bowl game in the last five years, that counts for something.

    Although it was nice to get the press, I also felt like this was a bit of a low blow, because it implies that the next to games are unwinnable. Also, ESPN always fails to mention that two of those years we didn't get to a bowl, we were coached by the almighty Gene Chizik.

    Yes. Something aout Bill Snyder just gets my goat. Probably the fact they crushed us so much in the early years of the Big 12.

    Also, the two ****** finishes of the Arrowhead games have left a bad taste in my mouth. I think KSU is a monkey CPR needs to get off his back, really similar to Iowa, imo.

    well, they are both road games at top 15 teams. While obviously not unwinnable, they are really tough games.

    could it be because he ran up the score on us every time we played in the 90s?

    I'd much rather crush OU, however unlikely I think it'd be wayyy cooler.

    I prefer to think of it like we TOOK the ball away 5 times.

    You really shouldn't harbor resentment against Snyder for getting your goat. I'm sure he needs it to help pull that fancy new buggy that he bought when he started coaching.

    Off the top of my head I can think of three of those turnovers that were clearly takeaways, not giveaways.
    • LJ's INT - tipped at the line of scrimmage.
    • LJ's FR - gang tackling D stood him up and were careful to not stop his forward motion as they repeatedly tried to strip. After about 7 yards were finally successful.
    • Benton's INT - tipped by crossing LB.
    Don't recall at the moment the other TO's, but how are those three giveaways?


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    We owe K-State an *** beating of epic proportions and I bet we get it this December.
