    We've had several worthy guys over the last ~100 years. Guys like Crutchfield and Blair are obvious mentions. But, 2000 yards in back to back seasons? Yeah, Troy Davis is easily the best college player we've had at ISU.

    I don't think this is a discussion if it is just what they did here. Troy Davis


    It's all snark from here on out

    Troy Davis should have won the Heisman. So obviously the best FB player ever at ISU. Who in the hell gets 2,000 plus yards on a 2 win team? His speech would have been frightfull though.

    If you read this board last year, you would know that Bo Williams is the greatest player to ever play football, let alone at ISU.

    I have a tendency to be dyslexic. So while everyone says Troy Davis, I say Lane Danielsen.

    troy davis, easily. he is proof that the heisman does NOT go to the best player in the nation. he put up those huge numbers behind an o-line that wasn't very good. imagine what he could have done with an all american or 2 blocking for him!


    This is Ophion speaking.

    Actually, our O-line was pretty solid back then, no way he gets 2k yards if they weren't.


    Quote from imported_blubberhawk on HN after ISU beatdown of Iowa in Carver '14

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."
