    The Legend of Jake Knott

    I know there is another thread discussing his injury, but I figured there should be a thread to reflect on the player and legend of this guy! What a bad ***... always putting his body on the line for his team. Even in high school, I remember his last game at Waukee was in the playoffs against Ankeny and he played the entire second half with a fractured bone in his leg or ankle (cant remember which, but he was in a cast for weeks after). Last year playing with a bum shoulder that he would pop back into place right there on the field. And now earning Big XII defensive player of the week while playing with a shoulder needing season ending surgery. I cant remember a tougher player in a cyclone uniform that Jake Knott. What a story, being CPR's first offer and ISU being his only BCS offer and becoming an absolute animal, all big XII linebacker and one of the best we've ever had. Hopefully he has an incredible NFL career and can get healthy soon. Thanks for such a great career, a true LEGEND.

    Career Stats:

    347 Tackles
    20 Tackles for Loss
    8 Interceptions
    22 Pass Deflections
    15 Break Ups
    10 Forced Fumbles
    2 Fumble Recoveries


    ALL IN

    I think this was the play before the goal line fumble. Still can't believe he played (and played so well).

    Re: The Legend of Jake Knott

    Think of what would have happened if Rhoads hadn't found him? Think of what we would have missed?

    The positive is we've got another Knott in the wings. If he turns out to be half as tough and half as talented, we'll have a hell of a player to watch the next 4 years. And he has the benefit of a redshirt that Jake didn't.

    Is it just me, or are we going to see the greatest Hit Tape in the history of Hit Tapes this week? How do you honor the man that is JK20?

    I never thought of that. I agree, it will be something special to honor Jake. Many tears will be flowing when it is played at the game next Saturday.

    Not even Rudy Ruettiger has as much heart as Jake Knott.

    Re: The Legend of Jake Knott

    If every player on our team were just like him, and for some reason we were not any good, I wouldn't care. Hard worker, stand up individual, always helping the team, on top of that a great player. Can't ask for any more out of a man.

    I'm proud to say that I got to watch one of the greatest Cyclones of all time.

    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    His game-winning pass deflection against Oklahoma State and his game winning interception against Iowa are immortal moments in Cyclone Football History.

    You give Jake his own Hit Tape. The man deserves a special feature.

    My favorite pic of Jake. The kid is an absolute beast and there is going to be one lucky NFL franchise out there that is going to bring this kid in and watch him wreak havoc for years.
