    I know most here don't care for the Murph and Andy show, but with the Hot Tub Time Machine movie coming out they asked what sporting event people would change with aid of a time machine. The obvious ISU ones mentioned - the MSU game, and two FB games with the north on the line. My favorite was the one that mentioned taking out the Mizzou student for taking the Larry pics. The ISU one I would change would be Jamaal's layup going in so every March we wouldn't have to see the highlight of the coach of you know who getting lifted in the air.

    Missouri game to win the big12 north. Just don't throw that pick! Run the damn ball from the 1.

    I would take the ISU-MSU game because if we win that game, we're more than likely a national champion. Something to eternally be proud of.

    Go Cyclones!

    Favre throwing the pick against NO, Martin Rancik forgetting his defensive assignment, and Paul Shirley (lane violation, missed defensive assignment, and slow rotation resulting in block-charge) againts MSU.

    ISU vs Mich St, not even close. Cyclones win the whole thing.

    Easy, blarge game.

    Wouldn't change fball, because then we'd still have DM.

    The Elite 8 game would be the obvious choice. Win it and we win a National Title.

    Another would be the '78 Gator Bowl. Stop Woody Hayes from punching the Clemson player, keep Bruce in Ames, and we have ourselves an upper-half Big 8 football program instead of two decades of misery and incompetence.

    Which was more painful, Andersen missing the only FG of the year, or Favre throwing the pick?

    I guess I'll go with Andersen because the Vikes were a buzzsaw that year. The broncos owe one of their titles to the Atlanta Falcons.

    the double foul against paul shirley in the elite eight game against msu. I think we win it all without that call.

    I lose track. I just assume that they'll always lose to NW.

    Dowling/Marshalltown in this season's FB Semis. Scored at the end and just gave them too much time.

    Not every year. NW didn't knock Iowa out of the conference championship race in 2008, and Iowa wasn't very good in 2006.
