    So beating Miami of Ohio 17-13 in the Independence Bowl, or beating Minnesota 14-13 in the Insight Bowl was a bigger deal than OSU Game?



    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: What do you think is the greatest moment in ISU sports history?

    Despite being in attendance for the OSU football win, winning 1996 Big 8 basketball tournament by one point over KU in the final is definitely up there. Perhaps part of it is harkening back to a younger age and simpler time in my life, but I'll always remember that team with Willoughby, Pratt, Cato, and Holloway as a ton of fun to watch.

    Re: What do you think is the greatest moment in ISU sports history?

    The question is greatest moment, not best ending to a season / career. I don't know how anyone can vote against the end of the OKST game. The buildup to the end, ramming it home, the radio call, pandemonium. Nothing compares.

    Re: What do you think is the greatest moment in ISU sports history?

    For football, it's the Oklahoma State game followed by a couple of Insight bowls.

    Overall, I'd say that hiring Fred is going to have the greatest long-term effect in Cyclone sports history, so I'm going with that.


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

    The thread title doesn't indicate that collective emotion has anything to do with...anything. As an accomplishment from the perspective of ISU history Cael will go down as more important and far more accomplished than the 2011 Football Cyclones.

    Posts like this are why hawk fans laugh at us. As a singular moment it was awesome (I was there) but to say it's better than the first Insight Bowl is kinda sad. What did the 2011 Cyclones do...really?

    I'd say objectively the 2011 oSu game has been no greater than the 1992 Nebraska game.

    Good points...but in 1992 Tommy Frazier lost his only conference game. Ever. To the Cyclones in Ames.

    I dunno BDK...the 2000 Championship team was so bad ***. Fizer & Tinsley just crushed it. 2014 was good because they fought for it but 2000 was good because they kicked *** for it.

    Re: What do you think is the greatest moment in ISU sports history?

    The Okie State game by itself was amazing, but to be the greatest moment of all time I think it would have needed to lead to something more. If we could look back at it now and see that as the springboard to getting the football program to new heights, that would help the case a lot. Now granted, it did basically kill the BCS, so it has some added significance there, but that doesn't really change much for ISU.

    I think the case could actually be made that the invasion of KC for the Big 12 title this year followed by the Sweet 16 run could end up being right up there. I know there were the what ifs with Niang's foot, but with the way the current trajectory of the program looks I think we could look back at that run years from now and recognize it as the point where the bball program took the next step to a level it has never been at before.
