See it at 8:30. (My brother pointed this out to me when I said I'd never seen it happen.)
I don't have to see this clip to know what happened. ISU cut the lead to three and did the onside kick, but the kicker hit a line drive right into the hands of this big ol' Sooner. Iowa State came back to score a touchdown (Obreg pass if I remember right).
I am indescribably happy right now. After how poorly I was treated in Lubbock 3 years ago, I'm as happy as a bouncy schoolgirl. Karma is fun.
By far the worst fans in the Big 12. TT's fanbase has the highest proportion of degenerates I have witnessed....More than the usual ignorant, arrogant, and rude. It would be like if Des Monies Area Community College or Kirkwood had a football team. Not too impressed with the area.
BTW, I've watched a LOT of football in the past 10 years. I'm talking an insane amount....high school, college and pro....12 hours a day on college football Saturdays and as much as I can watch of the pros on network TV. In all of my countless hours of watching football I don't think I have ever seen an on-side kickoff get returned for a TD. I've been racking my brain to see if I could ever remember seeing it happen before, but I don't think I have.
It happened to us in 1989.
It was the Oklahoma game that we lost 43-40. We played that game without a kicker, and then got to 36-34, and an OU player caught the onside kick and went the distance.
