I admit that I thought the blocked xtra pt was gonna come back to haunt us and we'd lose on a last 2nd FG...but it's amazing how this team battled and confident they were. We need to make beating Nebraska, maybe not the norm, but know we can compete and let's beat them there again to 2 years, it'd be nice to not go 16 tries in Lincoln before beating them.
Oh, I also scared people after the win screaming at the top of my lungs. I know as a Cyclone I get emotional about my team, but inside I'd like for these wins to come more expected, even if it means less celebration. I loved seeing grown Cyclone fans cry for joy and Huskers cry in pain...it was just a priceless day I won't forget for awhile.
this why i love being an iowa state fan. a win like this feels absolutely incredible. if i was a texas or oklahoma fan, it would have been just another win. when you root for a team with iowa state's history, the big wins feel 100 times better. also, i had some one three apartments down from me bang on my door and ask if everything was okay i was yelling so loud. go state!
No lie, thought we had a good chance of crapping down our legs. I kept mumbling... "if we don't get a td we're gonna lose... we need a td... we need to get some pts off a turnover..."
Everyone would have to be nervous, but to be honest, I absolutely thought that we would find a way to get another turnover and win this thing. Nebraska couldn't stop turning it over, we could stop taking it, and we absolutely were not going to quit.
I knew we'd win from the opening kick....errrrrrrr and sometimes I lie.
I was still nervous 10 minutes after the game was over. :)
Is this the lowest point total Nebraska has scored against us in Lincoln?:cool:
Hats off to JT and Jeremy for not committing a turnover. Has we ever committed no turnovers before in Lincoln?:notworthy:
The NE fans in the crowd kept calling for Cody Green but Bo was Bo and we saw no green.:no:
The NE fieldgoal kicker is great. To think, he never has a shot at one is unbelievable. He can kick them from 60 yards out and yet he was irrelevant.:cute:
To see NE top two running backs fumble twice each was a sight for sore eyes in Lincoln.:wink:
Bo will have them run 50 laps in practice this week. He is disgusted, yet he said Lee did not play a bad game.:sad:
Maybe Lincoln will not mark up a sure fire win next time when clones come to town. This was payback for the drubbing last year in Ames.:biggrin:
My favorite turnover was Nate Frere taking the ball away out of the pile.:yes:
We gave up fewer points than TT did the week before.:mask:
Lincoln will be lucky to win seven games and maybe the Snooze Bowl at this point.:no:
The silence in Memorial Stadium weas deafening for at least two quarters. The $1500 season seats on the west raised section were a cold spot to be on Saturday for Husker fans.:wideeyed:
The pandemonium at end of game on the visitor's field made for some nice pictures.:policeman::laugh::jiggy::radar::v_SPIN::wacko:
Heard a fan yell Go Clones as we exited - that was a special yell in Lincoln stadium. The NE fans just rundled away in disbelief. 8-0 in turnover margin was a record for them. ISU had a game in 1972 where we had 8 takewaways but we also lost the ball. There was only one other game in sixties where Lincoln had 8 turnovers, so now ISU has 2 of the 3 eight turnover games.:th_wink:

I enjoyed hearing "ISU" chants over my television. For some reason, we were more enthused at the end of the game.:yes:
