    Iowa's Mount Rushmore

    ESPN is doing this now.
    WHo would be on Iowa's Mt Rushmore as far as sports are concerned. As far as I know, there are no qualifiers other than being affiliated with the state at some point.
    Probably Gable and Warner as shoe-ins, after that is tough


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Fred Hoiberg and Nile Kinnick


    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Personally, I'd make it either.

    - Gable for sure.
    - Maybe Warner.
    - There's no way I do this personally, but if you took a statewide poll, I'm sure we'd end up with Hayden Fry. (Excuse me while I puke.)
    - Not sure who else?

    I could see Kinnick maybe. I'm sorry to say it, but I don't think you'd get many people outside of ISU nation to go with Hoiberg.

    Re: Iowa's Mount Rushmore

    Nobody outside of Iowa knows anything or cares about either the Cyclones or the Hawkeyes.

    If the list referenced athletes that are nationally known, it would be for professional or olympic sports:

    Bob Feller
    Bruce Jenner
    Zach Johnson
    Shawn Johnson
    Kurt Warner


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Iowa's Mount Rushmore

    Since this is IOWA's Mount Rushmore, I am not sure why national recognition means anything.
