    Does Luck Ever Find ISU?

    As long as I have been an ISU fan, we really dont get many lucky bounces. I know every fanbase says this but it really rings true for ISU. Usually we are on the end of a terrible call, a scoreboard malfunction (UCLA NCAA game), an unbelievable play, or a screw up on our part. I racked my brain and the only time I could think we got "lucky" in the past 10 years was the Creighton/ISU b-ball game at Wells Fargo where Vanderbeken through in the half courter that was allowed to count because there wasn't replay set up then.

    Sure, we get lucky. Auburn hired Gene Chizik, for example.

    The Oklahoma State only went to OT because of a missed field goal.

    The Nebraska turnover game.

    Also there was this football game last year where one of the best FG kickers in the nation missed a 35 yard field goal, allowing us to take this pretty good team into OT . . .

    Well, we have had plenty of bad luck. So to answer your question. Yes, I guess.

    The holding call against Missouri in Dan McCarneys last game was a gift.

    I'm really not sure which one was more of a miracle. I'll go with mcdermott, that thread started as 'there's a rumor creighton's coach might be leaving, anyone think we could get creighton to take him off our hands' and ended with 'holy **** those fools actually did it!'

    Creighton made a coaching hire.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
