    Since it's the off season. Wondering what your top crazy scenarios if something didn't happen in Iowa State sports

    My first one off the top of my head is "What could have been had Niang not got hurt in the tourney and we beat UConn".

    What if Craft had been (properly) called for a block instead of drawing the charge on Clyburn?

    What if we didn't have Jamie Pollard as AD?

    EDIT: This is a dystopian comment. I am not a Pollard hater.

    That leads me to wonder if we would have Campbell as our coach. The domino effect on that could be crazy

    What if Pollard had hired Brian Kelly or Jim Harbaugh instead of Chizik?
    (Assuming one of them would have taken the job)

    I definitely don't lose any sleep over wondering what could've happen if Georges was healthy. We were playing well, but we hadn't played any grinders. Good chance we still get beat by UCONN. Better chance Michigan State beats us with their size.

    Get right out. We would have won two national titles. That’s the only opinion the counts on that subject

    I will never, ever forget the sinking feeling I got when we lost the Mizzou game in '04. Because I got it again in '05 at the KU game.

    We win those games and we'd have been in big 12 championship games those years.

    What if indeed...

    What if Gale Sayers had not traveled with his friend on a school visit to KU and instead fulfilled his intention of coming to Iowa State?

    This would have been mine. Drat!
    And it really could have been One Cyclone Moment at the end.
