When asked why did Iowa State play a tough opponent in Toledo, he responded by saying that ISU was in alurch when Army paid a fine and bought out their contract to play in Ames. The only choices for us were Toledo, Florida State, and Georgia. Gracefully, he picked Toledo. I would think the latter two choices would have meant away games next year. It was a NO BRAINER. We wanted those Rockets and we blasted them. Nebraskas of the world had gobbled up Louisiana Techs of the world (or should I say Iowas of the world had feasted on Montanas - just lucky they did not play Montana State in Iowa City) by the time Army quit on us. Word has it that Army was too involved with Iraq to come to Ames.
