    Around The Web: Iowa State 9, Nebraska 7

    I'm going to compile a bunch of links from today's win in this thread and I'll stick it at the top of the football forum for the next 15 hours or so.

    Feel free to post your own links that you find in addition to what I throw together here.

    There's a pretty hopping thread featuring this YouTube video of the Cyclones celebrating after the big win. If you haven't checked it out yet, this is a must-watch.

    ESPN.com's Tim Griffin was very complimentary of Paul Rhoads after the win.

    Sean Keeler of the Des Moines Register warns football fans not to call Iowa State's win a fluke.

    Here are some interesting quotes from Nebraska coach Bo Pelini courtesy of the Omaha World Herald.

    Steven M. Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star elaborates on what Keeler wrote. Sipple claims that only one of Nebraska's eight turnovers was considered "flukish."

    Here's Randy Peterson's latest blog from the Des Moines Register.

    Weak...this is what makes me angry, we get a huge win and there is barely anyone covering it nationally.

    Um, because Nebraska isn't Nebraska of old and we are Iowa State. No one outside Iowa cares.

    We beat an unranked team in a much weakened Big 12, yeah its huge for us but nationally there are bigger stories.

    You're saying this like I have no clue and no business to state such a phrase. We had more coverage in 2002, and this was a bigger win. Don't give me that "this isn't the Nebraska of old" because a ton of national talking heads regarded them as bringing back the Nebraska of old. Even losing to Texas Tech, they still thought they would handle the north.

    This game and the TAMU/TT game were arguably the biggest upsets in college football this week...you're telling me that isn't newsworthy?

    Didn't see this one posted, and thought this was a good article:

    We were a MUCH better program in 2002. We haven't done anything this season for anyone to care about us. The talking heads regarded the Black Shirts, and their defense has played pretty damn well recently. Their offense sucks giant balls, but their defense is damn good.

    Re: Around The Web: Iowa State 9, Nebraska 7

    Why is Nebraska's offensive line leaky vs. ISU's unit of future haberdashers and carpet salesmen?
    What the hell is wrong with being a haberdasher?!?

    SCOREBOARD!!!

    And I just saw Kansas State highlights on ESPN...enough said. I don't see why anyone on here shouldn't be a little peeved that there were no highlights even, with all the Kool-aid people are drinking today. Very weird that I am having an argument about it...should be preaching to the choir!

    Maybe I was blind, but unless they can't show FSN footage on ESPN... there was nothing regarding this game on SportsCenter? They showed 5 out of 6 Big 12 recaps, and skimped on the ISU/NU match up. You're telling me KSU beating CU was a bigger deal? 8 turnovers wasn't a big enough story? How about a program beating the Huskers for the first time on the road since the Carter administration? THAT WASN'T A STORY?

    If kNU had been ranked 25th, it'd be all over the place. The simple fact that they weren't/aren't ranked means we will get little to no pub out of this.
