As a Husker fan first, who has lived in Iowa most of his adult life and doesn't have any problems cheering for either Iowa State or Iowa (when they aren't playing Nebraska), may I be the first to congratulate Iowa State on their win in Lincoln this afternoon.
I was one of very few who predicted the Gene Chizik era would be short- lived in Ames. I also said immediately after the Paul Rhoads hire that Pollard finally got something right. He certainly didn't have the resume that Chizik did, but there was no doubt in my mind that he was the "fit" that Iowa State needed. How far can he go is anybody's guess, but up to this point, he certainly has done well.
This Nebraska offense may go down as the worst in Lincoln in 50 years (and that's after Nebraska suffering through its worst defense in 50 years two years ago), but that in no way should diminish what Iowa State accomplished today. They played with heart, they played with desire, they played with passion. And, without question, they deserved to win.
I wish Iowa State nothing but continued success throughout the remainder of the season! If someone would have told me Iowa State would go bowling this year and Nebraska would be staying home, I would have asked them what they had been drinking. But my "reality meter" says that will be the case this December/January.
Sorry. I haven't read any of these because I'm still here but I wanted to hop on and make a suggestion...
Find a local bakery in lincoln and call in an order to the football offices for 8 turnovers to be delivered to the football offices!!!
Whoever does this needs to get a video of Bo's classy response.
Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
Make this one for the ages!
