    This will be a walk down memory lane for most CFers. I have always wanted to bring up a thread bringing up the best players/popular athletes ever at ISU and get a running list on Jersey numbers from 1-99. Once someone has been named, feel free to comment....or if someone else has not been named yet...bring them up......and add a memory of that player if you want. Then, let's get moving on up to 99.

    I am thinking about MBB and FB. (Obviously I know that some players have used the number 0....Jake Sullivan.....but we will begin with players that have donned the #1 -then #2 and so on.)

    In my ISU Lifetime....the top #1's are:

    #1 - Todd Blythe

    I have a feeling before he is done Sed Johnson will be one of the all-time greats at ISU to have worn #2.

    Current #2 Sedrick Johnson:

    I also agree that he could become a great player when it is all said and done.

    Also, wasn't Darren Davis #2 when Troy was still here? Then he switched to #28 like his brother-

    I think the best #2 ever is Ennis Haywood. He had a heck of a year when we went 9-3 in 2000 and a bowl win against PITT.

    Are we going in order here? If not, I think Marcus Fizer has a nice hold on #5

    Yes. Right now, I've got Sean Haluska on the mind for 3. J.J. Bass would have been fun if that had worked out better.

    Who am I missing?

    Yes, we are going in order here. And of course FIZER is the best #5 ever.....we will get to him. I am having trouble with #3s at the moment.


    Mike Born? Bryan Pearson? Joe Moderman was #3. What about FB?

    #3 - Jon Neal

    Had one spectacular game but it did come at Iowa's expense.

    Wasn't Gary Thompkins also #3. He was really good.

    Maybe we can come back to the #3s if someone has a dinamite one. So onto the #4s

    My Fav: Kantrail Horton - Clutch 2 guard....was a great roll player as well. Him and Tinsley owned the Big 12.

    another #4 Jackson Vroman - He was a popular guy on campus too... good hard nosed player.

    Before all is said and done, Austen Arnaud will be making a pitch for #4.

    Gilstrap will be #3, but he doesn't fit the mold yet. Something about needing to do it on the court first.

    But maybe he makes the list next time.

    I don't know.... I was wondering if there is a site that can look up old rosters? Does anyone know of any?
