I'd add an "older generation" game that always gets short shrift when talking about game-day experience.
Johnny's just getting off the ground program taking out a George Raveling Iowa team in overtime. We'd have probably lost by 40 if the game was in Iowa City. ISU was tiny compared to Iowa, yet won.
The noise level for the whole game and overtime was similar to having your head stuck between two fully cranked up 747's while a Grand Funk Railroad concert was going on.
The environment at ISU games isn't the same as it used to be. That is a fact. The reasons for this are plentiful and I agree that the students take an unnecessary amount of heat for the fizzling of the magic.
Fred talked about when he was in that critical part of a game as a player and mentioned the Oklahoma State game his sophomore year. You might recall that was the game when ISU came back from 18 at half and Hilton's floor was shaking late in the game as Oklahoma State was shooting free-throws. Crazy game and my favorite of all-time!
Awesome game! I had front row seats for that one. Although I'm pretty sure FH was a freshman...
