    ISU Appears on "10 Plays that Shaped the CFB Season"

    Below. #8 but they are listed on chronological order. On a side note--could we look back on this and say ISU was the reason a college football playoff or "+1" finally happens...

    We can say we are the ones that killed the BCS. I kind of like that title.

    Would it have been that hard to mention who picked it off...?

    I hope not. The pressure to name an objective national champion could ruin some of the best aspects of college football. The bowls, as well as nearly every season game, is so important. I don't want to see anything that moves college football in the direction of March Madness.

    Or who tipped it? That doesn't even get mentioned very much by us!

    Right. Except, you know, the one season game in which the #1 team eliminates a contender from the national title game. That one is completely unimportant.

    It is interesting to note that no play in the Alabama-LSU game was mentioned as a "season shaper," proving that their match-up then (and now, in the Bowl) is irrelevant.

    I'd love us to be the BCS Killer, with a Bullet.

    This year's theme was "All In." Next year's should be "Plus One."

    BMOC names Heisman candidates, moments of the year and more - ESPN

    Couple of references in this season review as well - Best game and Biggest Upset

    I'm surprised that moment is #8, the title is after all the 10 plays that shaped the national championship race. If that is the case I sure think that LSU, Alabama and Oklahoma State plays would be right on the top...

    Either way, more publicity for knocking off the #2 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys!

    No kidding, my first thought, too.

    The one thing that sucks about that win is that it's being framed as "OSU's big loss" rather than "ISU's big win".

    I like it - thanks for the post - I'm hoping ESPN includes the mad scene after the Okie St victory in their college football promos for the bowl season and into next season.

    We'll only be the BCS Killer as long as OKState doesn't lay an egg against Stanford. If they handily beat Stanford then the debate rages on. If OSU loses then it makes the system "right".


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    They are in order of when they occurred during the season.

    How bittersweet for Knott (tipped the pass) and Benton (picked it off). They make the 7th biggest play in college football this year and ESPN doesn't even mention either of their names.

    Re: ISU Appears on "10 Plays that Shaped the CFB Season"

    Interestingly 3 of the 10 were the result of missed FGs inside 40 yards. Okie State's miss against us for the lead with a minute+ to go could have been included as well. And Bama's missed FG's against LSU...

    Happens to the best of 'em. I hope we remember that the next time we meltdown over our kicking game.
