    ESPN SportsNation's Great State Debate

    SportsNation is doing a vote to pick the greatest sports moment for each state. I don't necessarily agree with all of the options here, but this is the link for Iowa:

    Great State Debate - Iowa - SportsNation - ESPN

    Honestly, not sure, some of those are great, but some are very time set. I looked at the Illinois ones also and not sure they are great either. Personally, I voted for Kinnick, because at least it has broader history. Gable also does.

    Agreed. That and the beer pong game prior to the 2007 Texas game.

    Yeah, I agree, not much to go on. But the state doesn't really have many great moments in sports to choose from.

    And it's hard to put Cael going undefeated because it wasn't really a "moment". If that makes any sense.

    Yeah, that's a good point. Perhaps what this poll does for a lot of states is show the lack of great sports moments...I have to check Alaska as cyclonetrombone mentioned.

    What about Shawn Johnson being on Dancing with the Stars? That's a great moment!
