Cylentbutdeadly you bring back memories. My dad got his PHD at ISU in the late 60's, early 70's. He was friend with Johnny Majors, we used to go to his house and toss the football around with him. I was about 10 at the time. George Amundson was a great athlete, exceptional at RB and QB. We moved to nebraska the year George hit Willie Jones from about 30 yards out to tie the game at 23 with no time left. Tom Goedjen, the future all-american, was a freshman and mised the extra point so the game ended in a tie. I was 11, and cried like a baby. That was my first experience with "we are ISU".
I can't wait for the next couple of years, I think all our programs are on the right track. My 40 years as a fan bleeding cardinal and gold are about to pay off..and it will be worth the wait. Go Cyclones.

Aumundson being 60 years old is alarming. Where does the time go?
Was at this game, Geodjen missed the extra point at the south goal post.
The lead member of the Nebraska PEP band got hit square in the forehead by an apple thrown by an ISU fan as the marched around the track surrounding the football field. The apple was sold by an Ames Service Club,before and outside the game. It was the last time apples were sold at the games at Clyde
