    Did Dan McCarney ever have a comeback like this?

    Sorry, I have to bring him up again. I just can't let sleeping dogs lie. I just have to give that sleeping dog a little poke with a stick, even if he is a pit-bull.

    Anyway, Dan McCarney coached about 141 games at ISU, and I don't remember one single come-from-behind win like this. He had some that were close, but they were ALL losses. He just couldn't quite complete the comeback, ever. And Chizik has done it in only his first season.

    How about Iowa 2002...down 24-7 at half time.

    The comeback over Iowa in '02 was IMO more dramatic that this. I don't remember how much we were down (17?). But Iowa was a much better team than CU, and obviously that being their only loss was huge.

    No, but he blew a 28 - 0 halftime lead against KSU at home and lost 35 - 28.

    The Iowa game was as dramatic as this one. These are the only 2 games I can think of where we had such great comebacks.

    Re: Did Dan McCarney ever have a comeback like this?

    Both were equally great in their own right.

    I get that for many years we're going to compare Chizik's accomplishments to McCarney's but come on - It's like this thing gets rehashed every week.

    To be fair, it was 28-7, not 28-0.

    How did the Hawkeyes do today? Hawkeyes? Hawkeyes? New uniforms? I hate our intro music. Dan McCarney Hawkeyes.

    Did he ever get a team to pull of a pair of late season wins after starting 1-8?

    Re: Did Dan McCarney ever have a comeback like this?

    how about the comeback of the entire program??


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
