    Brings back memories of watching Stinson and Blalock when you were bound to see at least one of those a game.

    A few Nebraska fans near me last night at the game, and the guys in that group actually stood up and applauded for that dunk.

    Agreed. Far and away the best oop I've seen in person. It looked like there was no way Craig could get it when it was thrown. And he threw it down with authority.

    It didn't. Probably because it was two 14-14 teams and save for those at Hilton and maybe several thousand at home viewers, nobody saw it. Including ESPN.

    Still a very sweet play, the extension and height to go up, get it with one hand and throw it down was just ridiculous.

    Not to mention it came late in the game when we needed it.

    Good thing Craig didn't clip his fingernails before the game.

    Yeah, I had that thought too. If the game were on the ESPN family of networks it would have been Top 10 for sure.

    That was sweet. I just wish there could have been a packed house to see it, I was watching on TV and it sounded like a local high school crowd. Not blaming the fans, just the situation.

    Re: The Oop

    Video captures just how pathetic Cyclone Alley looked last night. I hope Pollard takes some seats away from them next season since they only seem to fill them when Iowa, KU, and Texas come to town.

    No it didn't, I was surprised.
