    Can anyone tell me more about this photo?

    I was reading/looking at the photo essay on CNN.com regarding the Chicago Sun-Times laying off their entire photography department. CNN commissioned one of the laid off photographers to do portraits of all of the employees holding something they thought was important to them. I can't link to the actual photo, but I'm pretty sure that is an ISU football player and a coach pleading on his knees to an official. See photo 11 at the link below.

    Can anyone tell me more about this? Also note that the photographer holding the photo is named Buzz Orr...

    I don't know the story behind the photo, but I'm pretty sure that was one of Jim Walden's antics.
    I'm sure someone on here will know what was going on.

    Here's the same photo, in color, at the bottom of this page:

    Looks like Walden vs KSU in 93. Terrible call on what appears to be a ground forced fumble.

    Looks like Walden but there are way too many people in the stands for that to be a game from the Walden era.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    He missed the good photo opportunity when the streaker ran across the field.

    Maybe it was early in his career when fans still had hope.

    That's cool! Thanks for posting that video. I always find it interesting seeing a photo perspective vs video. Photos really can capture a moment in time differently than video.

    Re: Can anyone tell me more about this photo?

    Two thoughts: First, that is really damn embarrassing that a coach would do that. But I guess "embarrassing" is a good way to summarize the Walden era. And second, it's hard to believe that both the atmosphere and the crowds were so bad in relatively recent history. We owe a lot to McCarney, Rhoads, and Pollard for really turning things around.

    Re: Can anyone tell me more about this photo?

    i think the best part is at 1:10 in the video, you can just see the photographer kneeling, taking the picture on the very left side of the video

    This game was Walden's last win as coach of the Cyclones, as they lost to Nebraska and Colorado to finish 1993, and went 0-10-1 in 1994. Exit Walden.....enter McCarney.
