Living in Denver I was stuck and relegated to "watching" the game update on my sprint phone and making sure that the ESPN "webpage" on my phone was set on auto-update so I at least got to see what was happening...every 45 seconds if I was lucky :)
That being said, I don't think I can compare the goosebumps and the salty water that came out of my eyes seeing that pic with Mac being carried off. Man I will miss that guy. He brought me up from a squawk fan as a young kid and showed me the light. He's defined ISU for me and now even two years after I graduated, he still does and always will define ISU for me :)
I wasn't able to go to the game, but listened to the post game show, the locker room show and the show after that on the radio. How emotional was that! You could hear it in the voice of Walters, Heft and Bruns. Made me not feel so bad about the tears in my own eyes.
I have to admit I was cursing out Cotton on that stupid Meyer bootleg call at the goal line. For the love of all that is holy the way Kock was running the ball you give it to him 40 times and dare Mizzery to stop him!
Then, of course, we miss the field goal. My friend immediately started talking about how we lost the game. LOL
I will hand it to the players and coaches. They played that game with fire, emotion and a purpose. And, that also PISSES me off. If the team I saw yesterday had played that way the whole season I have NO DOUBT they would have won at least 7 games. Ultimately that is the fault of the coaches for not having the team in the position to win, and why Mac is no longer our coach. I wanted Mac to stay around at Iowa State until he retired an old man, but yesterday confirmed in my mind that the right decision was made.
