    Smile All-Time Cyclone Football Roster

    I started this project a few weeks ago before a similar thread from a while back here on cyclonefanatic was pointed out to me. Nonetheless, I wanted to share. Please take a look, let me and everyone else know if your favorite Cyclone was left off the team, or feel free to tell a story about a player you hadn't thought about for a while.

    My premise was simple, select the best Cyclone Football player to wear each number 1-99. Here are the first 25 ...

    1 Todd Blythe … WR … Indianola, Iowa
    2 Ennis Haywood … RB … Dallas, Texas
    3 Damien Groce … WR … San Bernadino, California
    4 Michael Wagner … RB … West Covina, California
    5 R.J. Sumrall … WR … Orlando, Florida

    6 JaMaine Billups … S … Omaha, Nebraska
    7 Bret Meyer … QB … Atlantic, Iowa
    8 Austin Flynn … WR … Deer Park, Texas
    9 Jeff Shudak … K … Council Bluffs, Iowa
    10 Alex Giffords … K … Tucson, Arizona

    11 Ellis Hobbs … CB … DeSoto, Texas
    12 George Amundson … QB/RB … Aberdeen, South Dakota
    13 Tony Washington … S … Dearborn, Michigan
    14 Tony Hawkins … S … Onondaga, New York
    15 Seneca Wallace … QB … Sacramento, California

    16 Dwight Nichols … RB … Knoxville, Iowa
    17 Jeff Waters … S … Carson, California
    18 Sage Rosenfels … QB … Maquoketa, Iowa
    19 Craig Campbell … WR … Sante Fe Springs, California
    20 Mike Lincavage … FS … Chatsworth, California

    21 Blaise Bryant … RB … Huntington Beach, California
    22 Tommy Davis … RB … East St. Louis, Missouri
    23 Tom Watkins … RB … Chicago, Illinois
    24 Dexter Green … RB … Woodbridge, Virginia
    25 Mark DouBrava … FS … Urbandale, Iowa

    Re: All-Time Cyclone Football Roster

    Does anyone know what number Dave Hoppmann was? I think he would merit consideration.

    Hoppmann wore #16

    The decision between Hoppmann and Nichols was one of the most difficult to make.

    There were many that were really hard, but that was near the top.

    Bingo. Very good Erik. Dobbins was breifly considered, but Hill was just too good to not put in there at #44

    Re: All-Time Cyclone Football Roster

    Great list. Cant find any glaring defects.
    Good work.
    Joe Henderson and Jeff Braswell jump out at me but I may be biased since I played with them.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Both were definately considered.

    When I think 33 I think of Henderson first and also Brandon Brown. Both Henderson and Strachan were good RBs for ISU, but Strachan was 2-time All-Big Eight. My heart went Henderson, but my mind went Strachan

    At 51, I went a little bit more with my heart as I knew Oliver Ross personally.

    If others agree with TheCaptain, please let it be known. I see this project as a work in progress and won't be afraid to change it with overwhelming demand.

    We can make a wrong a right
