    Brush with greatness?

    So I am at the Spring game today and as I am walking out, my 12 year old son mentions to me that the gentleman sitting next to us was wearing an Orange Bowl ring. If memory serves, the gentlemen was probably in his late 60 's, early 70's. Wondering who it may have been? Since ISU has never been to the Orange Bowl, can't think who it may have been?

    Not sure if anyone on the current roster is related to a former OB'er. They give those rings to anyone that's part of the program when you make it though. Could have been a 4th stringer, manager, student coach, etc.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    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.

    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do. Whether it's a community service project, or through practice or winning a bowl game, but you don't do that without the kids believing and being all in, and going out there and accomplishing all [of] the goals and expectations that we set." - Coach Paul Rhoads

    "The Situation" was in Ames for our spring game...and he has someone's Orange Bowl ring? He better give it back to whomever he stole it from...that's grand larceny.

    Then again...

    A reality show about what happens when some wanna-be tough-guy from Jersey gets sent to prison would be hilarious.

    O/U is 2 days before he gets shanked.

    Re: Brush with greatness?

    Why would it be such a "secret" thing who it was? Seriously, not like this person is in the witness protection program or something I'm guessing.
