    Your 10 best and worst moments

    of the past ten years. What are they? (Cyclone football moments)

    I would say best,

    1. Beating #2 OSU at home on senior day to earn bowl eligibility '11
    2. Beating Nebraska in Lincoln '09
    3. Beating Colorado to challenge for 1st place in the North on twister night '05
    4. Beating Texas in Austin '10
    5. Coming back to beat Iowa in Iowa City to ruin their perfect season. '02
    6. Seeing a top 15 Cyclone team beat Tech in a game filled with huge plays '02
    7. Destroying top 10 Iowa team to start conference play ranked '05
    8. Destroying A&M at College Station '05
    9. Winning the Insight bowl in Rhoads first year '09
    10. Beating a very good Missouri team for the last game of a long season '06

    Worst,
    1. Losing the Big 12 North outright due to a missed FG again! '05
    2. Losing the Big 12 North outright due to a missed FG. '04
    3. Losing to Nebraska at home for the last time by 1 point. '10
    4. Losing to a MAC team to start the season. '07
    5. Getting creamed by OU after starting 6-1 and a top 10 ranking '02
    6. Losing to Texas by over 50 points at home '07
    7. Getting shut out by OU allowing over 50 points '10
    8. Losing to Baylor at home '05
    9. Losing to Nebraska in OT '05
    10. Getting stopped on the 1 yard line on the last play to lose to Colorado '08

    At first glance, I can't argue much with what you included in either list. Good work.

    A couple a might swap as far as rankings, possibly one or two I might replace. But at least you provided a template

    Re: Your 10 best and worst moments

    Dont want to take the time to list, but getting blitzed and going to a game against k-state and standing next to a k state fan in the student section was fun. I yelled belligerent awful things about the kstate team the entire time, and even got the k state fan to high five me at one point when ISU did something good. Man, jagerbombs are good.

    Sitting in the rain in Norman in 2002, getting spanked 28-zip with 5 min left in the 1st quarter, after we had maybe our best start to a season since the 70's was definitely one of the worst.

    Re: Your 10 best and worst moments

    Was that football Conneticut game over 10 years ago. That was horrible.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I agree with all of the Top 10 Bests that the OP has except I would switch out the Mizzou win for the 2007 Iowa game. Shaggy hitting the gamewinner as time (almost) expires.

    Still within the timeframe, 2002.

    Definitely a candidate for the Worst list.

    Thought about that one, but I already had two Iowa games in there. Didn't want to bring in the hawk crowd.

    It is up there for my. Freshman year, first two losses of the year were embarassing so that win was pretty awesome. Only reason in my mind I don't want Chiz-Head to die a horrible death.

    Re: Your 10 best and worst moments

    Pretty cool to have been to a lot of those games in person, both best and worst.

    I maintain that the 2010 Nebraska game was still a high point. As soon as I saw the fake when we went for 2, I knew we had a winner in CPR, regardless the outcome. Nebraska was lucky to get out of that game alive.

    Re: Your 10 best and worst moments

    I think one of the worst is still the Florida State game. If there was review that year we win that game.

    Re: Your 10 best and worst moments

    Lots of painful ones. Lots of really good ones too. Beating Iowa this year was probably the most fun ice ever had at an Isu football game. I really love beating Iowa cause most of my friends are hawk fans. It was a perfect day for football and what a game it was. My first Iowa Iowa state game too, and first game being 21!
