    He's been great for the Vikings. My only knock on him as someone just said is when he showboated for another TD during garbage time against ISU.

    Thats the only reason the Vikings got him. People were scared he was "injury prone". I tell all my friends that ISU laid the beatdown on him and hurt him, causing him to fall. I leave out the flip into the endzon for no reason part.

    Yup. Most of my ISU friends were Vikings fans, we all loved it how our college team was responsible for our pro team landing our best player.

    Re: Adrian Peterson Gives $1 Million to OU

    Has any former ISU players, that are now pro, given a significant donation?

    I have wondered the same.

    Next time I get an Alumni mailing with the lists, I will look.

    I remember Coach Jim Walden was a regular contributor.
