    Re: TOUCHDOWN!!!!

    I was in California at the time. My buddy came over who had more or less become an honorary Cyclone by consistently watching games with me. I had bought a bottle of champagne on the off chance of an upset. Typical I made it the second quarter before I opened it and finished it. During the over times every single neighbor could hear me and following the game I had more text and voicemails from old Cyclone friends than ever before. I didn't even know half those people had my number!

    Re: TOUCHDOWN!!!!

    Freshman year, our group was always hellbent on getting as close to the field as possible. For this game though, nobody really felt the need. My girlfriend and I still got in line early as we always do, more out of habit than anything. When we were let in to wait at the steps for the last half hour, my brother (a hawkeye fan) called me to see how tailgating was and to ask if I had gotten my seat yet. When he asked how long I had been waiting in line, I specifically remember saying "Too long. We probably don't have a chance anyway." I'll never forget what he said next.. "You never know man. It's college football. Anything could happen." We ended up sitting in the second row, right at the goal line, and were among the first few on the field.

    Side note: My brother was at a watch party at one of his college friends house. His friend, a die-hard ISU fan, wasn't just hosting a watch party. He was calling it a "Bowl Eligibility Party".

    After James White scored to cut the lead to 10 they were playing that techno tune Sandstorm extra loud and the upper deck was bouncing up and down. The place was going crazy with towels waving and then Mahoney hits the perfect onside kick. That's when we thought we had a chance.

    The most miraculous thing about that game was Mahoney not being the scapegoat.

    We have other threads for that. Thanks for trolling.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Loved being able to watch the game again yesterday. Saw myself right behind Weeden as he walked off the field.

    Why would I care what Iowa's record is since ISU's biggest win in program history?

    Im perfectly happy with where the Iowa program is right now.

    Can you say the same about ISU?

    My post was simply a post of an irrelevant factoid...I thought that was the game you were playing, and I figured I'd join in.

    Over three years your team has averaged a losing record. You're happy? Good for you.

    Don't feed into the D-bags. Let them be douches. No sense in letting them ruin the fun.

    I don't mean this to sound bad about last year's team, because I appreciate what all of our players give for Iowa State, but watching this, you can see that team played with such heart and such grit and unity as a team. Last year's team was missing some of that, whether it's because of lack of trust with coaches or distrust in scheme or injuries or whatever it may be, this team the beat OSU had it and last years team didn't. That 2011 team wasn't the most talented team by any stretch of imagination, and I hope this years team can come out and play with that same heart and grit and trust in each other. I don't care how negative people may feel, I'm officially excited for this season to start.

    Re: TOUCHDOWN!!!!

    I have 4 season tickets and decided to sell them since I didn't have anyone to go to the game with. Then when trolling craigslist I found a lady that was selling her tickets fairly cheap with a good parking pass. I sold the parking pass to pay for the tickets and ended up inviting my brother-in-law with me to the game. My sister, brother-in-law, their child (niece), my wife and I all hit up Hickory Park before the lots opened for lunch. I remember during lunch my BOL asking me what our chances were and I was some what optimistic that the Cyclones would do well if they kept it close. After that all of us went tailgating until it was "too" cold for the little one, about 6 mos. old, which then my sister and wife left. My BOL and I stayed and tailgated until about 30mins before kickoff. We get into the game, with our surprise we found out we had gotten 45yd line tickets in the lower deck, instead of 25yd line tickets like the lady had said. Some tidbits I remember:

    - At half telling my BOL that I felt we had a really good chance to keep it close
    - Actually tearing up when Benten intercepts the pass in 2OT
    - Rushing the field and taking pics by the Honor Before Victory plaque/statue

    My BOL actually found us on the 2012 FB poster.

    One thing that made me mad, was I forgot to set the extended ending on my DVR which caused me not to get the end of the game.
