    ESPY for Best Upset

    I know it is early, but does Iowa State got a good shot at this award in July?

    Nope, Tim Tebow's "miraculous" 4th Quarter, come-from-behind victories for the Broncos will win it.

    Not in any means is this a fitting nominee for this category, but it's a Tebow reference, and that's all ESPN needs.

    I would sure hope so, we created more BCS chaos this year than anything else, it wasn't just an upset. Hopefully the glamor and excitement hasn't worn off by then.

    It's got to be one of 2 games. Either ISU over OSU or Kansas City over Green Bay.

    I bet it at least gets nominated. It helps that the game was on ESPN because, as we all know, ESPN loves to promote itself.

    depends on the NCAA tournament. If a 16 knocks off a 1, they will probably get it. I would expect ISU to be nominated though.

    Re: ESPY for Best Upset

    Dont forget about Indiana upsetting THEN #1 ranked Kentucky in basketball not too long ago......

    That was on ESPN too and it wouldnt surprise me if that won the award either...

    It should be US though!


    “That’s hard to express!”

    “So proud of the effort, my kids gave, to win tonight!”
