Was that the "Oh S..." cheer? We did that a lot in those days.
Hahahahaha... yeah. I should have replied before when you originally asked - that was the cheer. Burned my cherry little ears. I'm laughing now thinking about it. Coolest thing I had ever heard up to that point.
Rep on the way!
ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)
Also, I believe the K-State game that the OP was referring to was the '98 game. Led 28-7 at halftime. And lost.
I've got lots of those memories...
Oof...just to see that "(11) ISU" on the scoreboard in that clip make my heart break to think how far we've fallen (for the moment).
That K-State game was in '99. They were ranked 15th at the time. I'd never seen JTS rockin' so hard as during that first half. As noted before, we led 28-7 at halftime. Lost 28-35.
EDIT -- The comeback against Colorado last year was pretty sweet. The stadium was rockin' pretty hard then, too. The game didn't mean much in the grand scheme, but it was a big confidence booster when combined with the K-State win the week before in an otherwise abysmal season (the Iowa game not withstanding).
My memory was correct on this one. From cyclones.com HOF story on Luther Blue.
A native of Valdosta, Ga., Blue saw immediate action in his sophomore season under second-year head coach Earle Bruce in 1974, catching 26 passes for a team-high 450 yards. Blue totaled five touchdowns that season, four by air and one on an 83-yard kickoff return that broke open ISUís 23-18 victory vs. Kansas State. His 32.75 yards per kickoff return average in 1974 ranked second nationally and shattered the schoolís season record. The mark still stands as the best in ISU history by over 6.0 yards per return.
Okay, but his Biggest Return Ever was his return against Nebraska in 1976 during the 37-28 burning of the Fuskers. He was an all-confernce performer that year. You ask most Cyclone fans about the Luther Blue return, and they will talk about the Nebraska return.
I understand that the KSU one would have been big to you being there for the first time with your brother. Those are special memories.
[blockquote][/blockquote] This represents my opinions. It is a 100% certainty that I will be right or wrong.
One memory that always makes me laugh was a game in Clyde Williams stadium, Big Daddy Hunt got hit in a "sensitive" area. As the trainers carried him off the field, he was pointing at the player who did it, yelling "You! I'm coming back and I'm going to get you!"
"The Run" by Seneca Wallace
I was just 10, and I remember how pumped I was when I gave Seneca a high five as he came out onto the field that game and I was even more pumped after he made that play. I'd have to say Seneca was my childhood hero. That entire game stands out to me because it was very special and is probably why I'm such a big fan today.
2005 Iowa (#8)
2005 Tornado Game
2006 Ryan Kock Beats Mizzou (who had Chase Daniel!)
2007 Iowa (Prayer Answered)
2007 The Colorado Comeback game
My ISU background is relatively short... I really wish I would have been around for some of those other games before 2005. For all of the downers (and there have been a few...), we still have had a lot of great ISU football memories. This is why I get so excited for every single football game. Who knows what is going to happen!!!
