    It's from I think last years College gameday. If you watch at the 2:55 mark it has Iowa State's fumble ruskie. I was at that game and they made that play illegal shortly after. Jim Waldon ran it a few times and it never not worked.

    It's so funny, because I just watched this exact video last week and I had no idea that Iowa State was in there! And that's the one play that I had to go back and see again a couple of times when I watched in the first time. Thanks for pointing it out!

    Jim Walden was a genuis. I just wish he got more credit.

    Great trick play. I was at that game as well. Unfortunately, I believe we built a big half time lead and still lost. They should have also included the "huddle" onside kick. We made that work several times.

    Walden was entertaining and had numerous trick plays for both the offense and special teams. Unfortunately, he hung his hat on the triple option after numerous quarterback injuries, and we never recovered.

    I still like listening to Walden, but I do not believe we would have found the same success as we did under McCarney. It was time for a change, no different than it was time for a change at the end of the McCarney era.
