    Anyone else watching? It is good, and very sad. I can still remember where I was when I heard the news...in our floor den room that evening. Everyone was in a bit of shock.

    Am i the only one who thinks this is a bit overplayed? Countless people have died in this state since then, plenty of tragedies, yet we dont hear about them annually or have news specials from every station and the paper about them 20 years later.

    Not really no. It was a huge story nationally, and even bigger in Iowa. It would of been very similar to Hoiberg dying his Junior year at ISU.

    Except DA Hawk fans would make crude jokes about it like they do Stevie Hicks. I am one for showing respect to Chris Street.

    I had the opportunity to get to know Chris, he was a great guy and I remember how shocked and saddened the state felt after hearing the news of his death.

    I was a Hawkeye fan and in sixth grade at the time of it. I remember everything about it still, almost better then I remember other national events that have shaped history. I remember meeting him at a basketball camp a few kids from my hometown went to. He was a fun player to watch as a kid.

    It seemed like shortly after he passed away I started getting more into Iowa State basketball.

    You obviously cared enough to comment. Based on your 43 posts in 2.5 years, I'd say it takes something pretty big to elicit a post out of you.

    all the legal junk and finger pointing that occurred after his death was almost as tragic as the death itself.
