    Favorite Iowa State Moment

    Last year's punt return is honorable mention to me. My favorite was as a kid (so my memory may be off some) when a player on the sideline stopped a Colorado Buf kickoff return touchdown. Does anyone have more of the story?

    Who Was Your Favorite Hawkeye that Things Didn't Work Out in Playing Time

    Mine is Greg Boyle. Thought he had excellent ball-handling and passing skills. Knee injuries kept him from getting much playing time. He was fun to watch. Not sure it would have ever equated to playing time though without the injuries. 2nd would be Randy Norton if only because I watched his...

    Is This What KF has Dreamed About and Maybe Never Has Accomplished?

    Managing low-risk QB. Ball control offense. Smothering D. Emphasis on low-risk QB. And looking like a good team that turns heads? Side note. Isn't this the 3rd shutout in the last 7 Big games?

    Admissions Scandal - Why Iowa a Destination of the 1%?

    Just curious on takes about this. Iowa does not have high admissions scandals. Does this mean the more honest 1% ers get their kids to Iowa? IL has maybe the top engineering school in the nation. Wisky and a few others are pretty academically prestigious, but not requiring extremely high...
