    2005 Colorado game

    I just watched it again on Cyclones.com. How did that team only win 7 games, blows my mind. There are a few players I would take from that team to fill in for his year.

    Brett Meyer (he was a decent passer)
    Todd Blythe
    Aaron Brant


    Brent Curvey
    Berryman
    Dobbins
    Hicks
    Jackson

    What are your opinions, did I leave anyone out. I would have loved to see what this staff would have done with that roster, I have a feeling they wouldnt have **** the bed against KU, and a Big12 North title wouldn't have come down to the last day as well.

    Can't believe we lost to Baylor that year either. At least I drank so much that I don't remember much of that atrocity.

    I thought I was being unproductive looking at this site. You're breaking down tape from 8 years ago!

    I know, its the off-season and I was bored. We did have some pretty decent players on that team. Its amazing how things have changed in the B12 since that time.

    Re: 2005 Colorado game

    We were on the easy rotation with aTm, OSU, and Baylor as well. Nebby sucked, Misery wasn't that great either. But yet we found a way to lose 4 games in the regular season, and should have lost to Army as well.

    Nebraska: Nick Leaders dropped gaming winning interception in OT.
    Missouri: Complete domination until we knocked out Brad Smith. In comes Chase Daniel at backup, and sparks the Missouri comeback.
    Baylor: Greg Coleman fumbled in the endzone. Complete momentum swing.
    Kansas: Culbertson misses field goal to win outright division title.

    We were FOUR plays away from being undefeated. But also only a few away from winning only three or four games all year (Northern Iowa barely missed game winning field goal in season opener for example).


    Passing: 124/273, 1560 yds, 8 TDs
    Rushing: 441 yds, 3 TDs
    Receiving: 98 Rec, 1106 yds, 3 TDs

    Re: 2005 Colorado game

    That entire defense was salty at times and they produced a ton of takeaways, but they got lit up at a few rather inconvenient times (final drives of regulation against Missouri and Kansas, for example).

    Brent Curvey
    Nick Leaders
    Jason Berryman
    Tim Dobbins
    Matt Robertson
    Deandre Jackson
    LaMarcus Hicks
    Steve Paris
    Nik Moser

    It didn't help that Stevie Hicks was banged up for a good part of the season. I think we missed him pretty badly in that 3-game stretch against Nebraska, Baylor, and Missouri.

    We didnt play UNI that season. You're thinking 2006. Played Illinois state and looked ugly but won like 37-23 or so

    Think you might be conflating 2005 and 2006. That UNI game was in 2006, and all four games won that year were by the skin of our teeth (Toledo in 3 OT, UNLV coach rant, UNI field goal, Missouri Pinkelgate).

    The games we won in 2005 were mostly comfortable:

    Illinois State 32-21 (close in the 4th quarter)
    Iowa 23-3 (domination)
    Army 28-21 (nearly blew it in the 4th quarter)
    OSU 37-10 (close first half, dominant second half)
    A&M 42-14 (domination)
    KSU 45-17 (domination)
    Colorado 30-16 (close into the 4th quarter)

    The fizzle of the season was entirely the offenses fault. They didn't show up at times and didn't take advantage of short fields.

    No kidding! Give me that front 7 again!

    We got mega-hosed on the Coleman fumble against Baylor too, he was in the end zone by like a yard.

    Forget the 2000 team, the 2005 team was the best of the modern era for ISU football. The losses that year were all soul-crushing and being at that KU game was a nightmare.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I watched this game on TV live and this moment still feels like it happened yesterday. I can still see the play in my mind.

    Luckily I only saw the 1st quarter. I beleive it was a pick six that ended my stay in Jts. I was beer fueled and chucked a half open beer from the upper deck, four cops escorted me out. Not my best moment...

    The 2005 Nebraska OT loss was a classic. The Nebraska fans gave a standing ovation as Iowa State departed the field. You hate to lose, but if you had to lose, at least it was first class appreciation of the game.

    The Kansas OT loss, also on the road, was equally forgettable. Kansas benefitted from 2 drive saving call reversals on instant replay. As I recall, that was the first year that was used. And like the Missouri loss, KU brought in a backup QB, who rallied the team to a late comeback.

    You mentioned the Chase Daniel comeback. I've heard him recount that tale in an interview as one of his best memories. Skladney's defense put on a clinic shutting down one of the all time NCAA combined yardage leaders in Brad Smith. It was a fantastic game plan. I thought Mizzou was nuts bringing in a freshman QB, but obviously Chase Daniels was no deer-in-the-headlights that day.

    The Houston Bowl loss was to one of TCU's better teams, IMO. They had lost only one game, and that was an inexplicable loss to SMU on the road. I guess that it sortof a local Ft Worth vs Dallas rivalry thing. TCU finished #10 that year, but might have been underrated. You could tell they were pumped up for the Houston bowl, chip on the shoulder, to whip a Big 12 team. It was a decent game until the 4th quarter, when TCU was able to run the ball and wear ISU down. Also Berryman was awarded the defensive MVP, which is very rare for the losing team to receive.
