    Twist of Fate - Nile Kinnick Sr. & Clyde Williams

    I posted this on CR and was disappointed there was no response, so I'll offer it up here. Did you know:

    Nile Kinnick Sr graduated from Iowa State and was a quarterback and drop kicking specialist.

    Clyde Williams was the quarterback of two unbeaten Iowa teams.

    Who would have thunk it.

    That's a pretty good Sportscenter "did you know" fact.

    Half the people on here have no idea who Clyde Williams was.

    After all, for current students, Clyde Williams Field doesn't even exist as a jogging track/Friley Beach any longer.

    Thanks for the triv. What I find amazing is that Iowa had two unbeaten seasons?#?@? Like when - 1902?

    I know it stinks that there's not a Clyde Williams Field anymore, but a University eventually has to move on. We needed new dorms while not giving up existing ones in the process. About all Clyde Williams field was used for (in all honesty) was marching band practice. Easy decision.
