    Last time the Cyclones were 4-0?

    When was the last time that the Cyclones had a 4-0 record. I know we were close in 2005 when we had a 3-0 record going into Nebraska, but we lost in the 2nd overtime there. Then when Seneca Wallace was a Senior we were 5-1 to begin the season but lost the first game against Florida State. I still say he was across the line.

    That year of the FSU game was my freshman year, and I have a lot of great memories, but I can't remember ever being 4-0.

    Hopefully I haven't put a hex on us for the TTU game, but I would like to know when the last 4-0 start was for the mighty Cyclones of ISU.

    We were 4-0 in 2000, lost to NU.

    I'd guess you have to go back to 1980 to find 5-0, when we then proceeded to lose 5 straight.

    I was wondering when this topic would come up. I remember the week leading up to the Texas game last year it was a huge deal. Then... yeah.

    I don't recall that game. Or A&M or Mizzou. Weird.

    YES. This is exactly what I was going to say, but I didn't think people would get it.... for context: Flight Of The Conchords - The Humans Are Dead - YouTube

    I remember rolling down to Lawrence 5-0, cocky as hell, Another One Bites the Dust screaming on the cassette deck, not much after that. What happened?

    Donnie Duncan is what happened. His teams never finished a season strong. We seemed to run out of gas every year he was here. The guy could be Iowa but we fizzled shortly after.

    The last time we were 4-0, we were 4-0. Wrap your mind around that!

    well 2001 was significant during football season for other reasons. Had we played Iowa when we were scheduled to, we'd have been 4-0. However, since we played them at the end of the year we were 3-0 when we lost to NU
