    I'm a little surprised that it was an ISU game.

    Was EIU even mentioned? What a slap in the face if Iowa State and UNI have the top spots for this. *Que the Hok fans claiming their win over Penn State should be ahead of ISU-OSU*

    Hawk fans will say that their program expects greatness so nothing they've ever done is worth celebrating because they maintain continuous excellence or something stupid like that.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Nope, but I'm sure ISU's moment was the freshest in the minds of those being polled...

    This.

    Iowa/PSU 2008, Orange Bowl 2009, among other things were not as big as ISU's victory over OSU in terms of recent history. They do not have the same importance for the program that ISU's does.

    However, if you look at all time, 1985 UI/UM game would easily beat it. #1 vs #2 with last second field goal wins every time.

    Re: ESPN the Mag's best sports history moment in Iowa...

    Have to agree with AmesHawk.

    In the modern era the Michigan v Iowa game has to be right at the top. It was the pinnacle of the rebuild and had two heavyweights going at it.

    I remember that as a turd of a game. The ISU v OSU game sure was more exciting, but #2 in my opinion

    I'd like to see the initial ballot again, don't remember all the candidates ó I assumed if it wasn't going to be ISU-OSU (which has advantage for being fresh in voters' minds) the iowa-u-m game would be near the top.

    I recall a few wrestling choices. Average sports follower outside of ISU-Iowa fanbase probably wouldn't rank those too highly.

    I won't argue ISU has been involved in a bigger game than 1 vs 2 last second field goal in college football...

    But after that ISU's two year period of steamrolling the entire Big 12, beating Kansas five times in a row and finishing with a #3 ranking easily outclasses anything in the state since. The 2000 ISU basketball team is the best football or basketball team in the state in the past several decades.

    If this is recent sports history, then ISU-OSU deserves to be ranked #1.

    If this was biggest ever sports history moment then I really have to wonder what the hell these people were thinking.

    Because anyone outside of die hard Iowa fans remembers/cares about a football game played in 1985. I mean honestly, what could they have possibly been thinking?

    It's a fan poll. Of course it's going to be the most recent. It's always going to be the most recent.
