Pshaw! The cave tailgates were where it was at! Nothing like some mastodon over the fire before the big game.
Nothing better I'm sure than eating mastodon and watching the Cyclones take on rookie head coach Bill Snyder of Kansas State.

I want to forget about the late Larry, Morgan, and McD years.
For the youngsters on the board, here is a bit of perspective. Iowa State has played 113 years.
Before Orr, 73 years with 13 coaches. Since Orr started, 40 years with 6 coaches.
Saying the modern era started with Fred would be like saying the modern era of baseball started with Trout.

Well this is all arbitrary, but there are a lot of people that would tell you we are in a post steroid era in baseball which isn't all that much longer than when Fred started coaching at ISU. So I guess its how you want to define "modern" in basketball.

College basketball (and basketball generally) has changed a lot more in the past few decades than baseball has. When has baseball had something so game-changing as the three-point line added to it...? There have been some things, like lowering the mound after the 1968 season, but has there been anything else?
