    Who has stood on Jack's 50?

    I've never been on the field, would love to sometime. Please add any good stories.

    Re: Who has stood on Jack's 50?

    Only been on the field a couple of times.
    Can't remember the year, think it was around 97-99 - in the AHS marching band there was an event where a bunch of high school bands joined ISU's band for a performance.

    Re: Who has stood on Jack's 50?

    I was on the field during the summer of 2003. I was at The Iowa Youth Agricultural Institute and we went on a tour of field. It made me think about the possibility of during Turfgrass at ISU. There is a lot of work that goes into that small patch of grass.

    Besides that, I've only been on it after an exciting Cyclone win... usually Iowa!

    Re: Who has stood on Jack's 50?

    When I was younger my neighbor's brother was on the team. I remember they let us play on the sideline during the spring game one year. I remember getting tackled (you know, kids tackle football haha) and went face first into the turf. This was probably around '95-'96 ish so it was while we still had the old school turf. Had a nice mark on the face for a while after that one

    Stormed it a few times from the student section. A couple times after stadium clean-up we ran out there.

    Did a grass angel at the 50 after the win vs Tech and the "run" by Seneca.

    Re: Who has stood on Jack's 50?

    Kissed the 50 yard line following the dismantling of a Joe Dailey-lead Nebraska in 2004. My first field storming at JTS. I stormed against Iowa 2005, Mizzou 2006, and Iowa 2007 also. Stood on the 50 for all of them. If we beat a ranked team at home (Iowa and Okie State will be ranked) I might storm again. I'm getting a little old for it though. Granted, if we ever win the division at home, I'll storm regardless of age.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    back in the day I would play catch or touch FB for hours after each game.. ALL over the field. Those were the days.

    Re: Who has stood on Jack's 50?

    Yep, several times after big wins (I went to ISU during our recent bowl years). Slammed the end of a flask of Rum on the 50 after we beat Nebraska in Seneca's Sr year!

    Stormed the field after our last home game the year we went 9-3('00-'01) and won the Insight Bowl. Ran into Dan Mac, shook his hand and told him "Congrats on 8-3, Coach!" He said "We've got one more to win!" (and we did). It was pretty cool.

    Dustin Avey took a big drink out of my flask, thinking it was beer. It was whiskey/coke.

    I wondered out on the field during Fanfest 08 last year. I hope to rush the field someday after a Big ISU victory.

    Stormed all those same games. Touching the telephone trophy and watching people carry of McCarney was great!
