    This is the best play I have ever seen in person. Screw the decade. Too bad we are not USC otherwise this would of made ESPN and College Football Gamedays top moments of the decade.

    Alot of the plays they showed were really nothing special. Just alot of your "big" name schools highlight reels.

    They did show the Paul Rhoads "I'm so proud" locker room moment at Nebraska. That was pretty sweet! If you take the total segment and the amount of time devoted to Clones, I would say it was the single longest part of the Best of the Decade of College Football

    Re: I want your top ten of the decade sports moments

    Just a few more that were left off your list:
    Barry Bonds breaking HR record - If you are talking purely "moments", then I think this has to be included
    Tate to Halloway - Take off the blinders, that play has made highlight videos every year since it happened.
    Hook and Ladder/Statue of Liberty by Boise State
    Appalachian State blocking the Michigan field goal
    George Mason making final four
    Dale Earnhardt's passing - not exactly a joyous moment, but it certainly had a huge impact on the sports world.
    Patriots going undefeated

    I'm sure there are countless others we are forgetting.

    Your probably right on a few of those I will agree...... Too bad Seneca's run wasn't during a bowl game, it might be remembered by more if it was. And one of the reasons that Tate and Halloway will live on. New Years day vs LSU... If that play was against UNI or ISU or any Big 10 team not named OSU or Michigan or PSU would it be remembered??

    Re: I want your top ten of the decade sports moments

    I'll just limit my response within the Cyclones

    1. The Run
    2. Come-from-behind ISU victory against Iowa in 2002
    3. ISU beat Nebraska in Lincoln
    4. ISU beat Nebraska in Ames
    5. WBB victory vs Michigan State in the Sweet 16
    6. Big 12 WBB final: ISU beat Oklahoma in 2001
    7. Cael Sanderson finished his college career undefeated
    8. Insight.com bowl victory in 2000
    9. Dan McCarney "resigned" (great guy, but it was time for him to go)
    10. A football coach ran away to Auburn

    Note that those were "the top moments" not the "highest moments"

    I want to put the dismissal of LE too

    It would be probably be right up there with Houghtling beating Michigan in '85, Murry beating Penn State last year, Clayborns block for a TD against the Lions this year, etc...

    It would be remembered by Iowa fans the same way you folks remember Seneca's run.

    Re: I want your top ten of the decade sports moments

    "Fourth down and five. Texas at the USC 8. On the right hash...here's the snap. Vince back to throw... He's going to tuck it in and run, VINCE TO THE FIVE! TOUCHDOWN TEXAS! TOUCHDOWN VINCE YOUNG! VINCE YOUNG HAS GIVEN THE LONGHORNS THE LEAD, WITH 19 SECONDS LEFT IN THE GAME"

    USC had (obscene number) All-Americans. They had 2 Heisman Trophy winners. But they didn't have Vince Young.

    Also, Packers-Raiders, MNF, Dec. 23, 2003. A day after the death of his father, Favre explodes for 311 yards and 4 TDs in the FIRST HALF.

    Re: I want your top ten of the decade sports moments

    Eli Manning escapes pressure and David Tyree catches the ball against his helmet on the winning drive in the Super Bowl to deny New England an undefeated season.

    Santonio Holmes' amazing tiptoe catch to win the Super Bowl last year to give the Steelers a record 6 Super Bowl titles.

    Vince Young and Texas win against USC in the BCS title game.

    Ohio State wins in OT vs Miami in the BCS title game.

    Re: I want your top ten of the decade sports moments

    There are several, but here are some highlights:
    • Me, breaking various traffic laws to make it home in time to catch the end of the Boise St./Oklahoma game
    • Me, hitting 8/9 from the field on a Sunday pickup game at the local HS gym
    • Me, bowling a 242 on Wii bowling
    • Finally, me, scoring big time by taking Southern Miss and the points against Kansas earlier this season
