Wow, you are probably the youngest poster on the site. Welcome new BDK
Hey I can at least get into college
I was with my FIL. We stayed in our seats, but he figured it was time to go, since the game was over.
I insisted that we stay and soak it in. It was a little difficult to get across that this had never happened here before, and really wasn't supposed to happen that night.
That went from a pretty ho-hum, ISU's outmatched but oh-well type of game to the (then) greatest thing ever in no time.
Husband, friend of ours, and myself were in seats on the lower level on the end of the winning touchdown. Remember my husband saying "Secure your belongings" after Benton caught that INT.
After the TD, we group hugged, hopping up and down about five times, and then ran the 20 rows down for the wall. That's a bigger leap than you think, and the sea of humanity coming behind you doesn't let you hesitate.
The three of us got separated. Husband has the best of the on-field stories:
1) Somehow managed to be right next to Darius Darks, and got a hug from him.
2) Nearly ran into @ISUCyclones2015
3) Once it slightly died down, husband was loitering near where the band was, waiting for me and our friend to find him, when a couple of frat-ish boys walked past. One grabbed him by the shoulders and said to another "Hey! Take a picture of me with THIS guy!"
So there's that.
Oh, yeah. At halftime, it was just a matter of how long to stick it out before leaving.
Then they scored, and it was about time to leave.
And Jarvis West responded with that electrifying return to somewhere near midfield, and it was clear that we just might have some fight in us.
Of course, the greatest interception in the history of football by Ter'ran Benton was unreal. That moment when it was a done deal, and Jeff Woody making sure, that was just magic.
I had taco bar for dinner. beef, cheese, pico, nacho chips. and egg nog.
Well I was pretty hard to miss being in a speedo and painted yellow head to toe. Hopefully none of the paint got on you!
Can't say I remember much in the chaos besides me getting pushed up against Justin Blackmon and I thought he was going to murder me. I just put my hands up and kept yelling "I'm sorry" over and over as the crowd just kept descending into madness.
We weren't even going to go to the game originally. We thought about giving away our tickets because we had to get up at oh dark thirty to catch a 6.30am flight to Texas the next morning. We finally decided to go. We stayed...and stayed...and stayed...I'm guessing it was close to an hour after Woody's TD that we finally left.
Lew tried to get a couple hours sleep when we got home...I was still too pumped. I ended up watching a replay of the game and talking to people on FB until it was time to wake Lew up and load up the car. Man, our butts were dragging by the time we got to College Station!
Okay. So I bought the shirt.
I was graduated, married, and working full time. I swear 2011 wasn't that long ago.
Excellent post, new guy can stay
What if he is bdk?
He's not. He's been around a while.
Did you work the film crew in college? I always thought it would be really cool to watch a game from up there.
I was not at the game.
Worst thing is in CR he would probably get shanked for disrespecting a "great BB player".
Everyone has that special game that they'll remember forever and cemented them into being Cyclone lifers.
This post is worthless without pics and we all know you have the photography skills.
I can assure you I am not BDK... not sure if I could live with myself if I was
