ISU

Post by ophion1031 on July 27th 2015, 3:51 am

I have a couple of fellow Iowa State fans that will be joining the forum soon. This is a thread to discuss ISU sports. I am going to post some old newspaper clipping and photos at some point.

Dec. 10, 1995 Troy Davis article from the Standard-Speaker - Hazleton, PA. Davis is still the only sophomore to eclipse the 2,000 rushing yard mark and is still the only player to rush for 2,000 yards twice. Why is he not in the college football hall of fame? Because he played for ISU.

Nice win over Kansas on Saturday! Mike Warren set a freshman record for rushing yards in a game with 175. He also became the first freshman to have back-yo-back 100 yard rushing games. This kid is the real deal.

Kansas might be the worst team in the fbs. Did you see Toledo is now ranked in the top 25?

I did see that! And yes, Kansas is god awful. ISU has a tough road game against Texas Tech Saturday but it is a winnable game. Tech's defense is horrible, even though they have played TCU and Baylor the last two weeks.

Mike Warren is a total badass! ISU may have got smoked today, but Warren ran for 245 yards on 23 carries. On the season he has 574 yards and 2 TDs and averages 8.1 yards per carry. And he is just a freshman! He will end up being the best RB that ISU has had since Troy Davis.

Mike Warren is just 3 yards shy of 1,000!! He will be the first Cyclone to reach 1,000 rushing yards since Alexander Robinson in 2009. Warren also leads all FBS Freshmen in rushing yards and I think is first in yards per carry as well. He is 17th in the nation and 3rd in the Big 12 in rushing yards.

Cyclones are ranked #7 in Men's Basketball, but #5 Duke and #6 Virginia have both lost this week. Looks like the Clones will be a top 5 team come Monday!!

Iowa State football is the biggest joke in the history of college football. Up 35-14 at halftime against Kansas State today and they blew it and lost. Coach Rhoads better not have a job much longer otherwise next years attendance will be a lot lower.

Ha..ha .. (reading down the thread)  it sucks to lose like that  
K state  is known for big,trick  plays and piling it on
The Cheifs would play great in the first half then in the 2nd play a a prevent D that prevented them from winning

I bet you're happy Rhodes got fired today. That was a brutal loss yesterday. I watched the first half then switched the channel figuring ISU had the game won.

Don, K-State didn't run trick plays. ISU lost 4 fumbles late in the game and the Cats turned them into points lol.

I was an Iowa fan as a kid but switched to Iowa State when i was 9 or 10. My entire family is Iowa fans. I watched their game tonight at my mom's house with her and my brother and sister. Too bad they lost, they made a hell of a run this year!

Cyclones basketball is red hot. Beat #1 Oklahoma last Monday and just beat #4 Kansas tonight. They are playing lights out. Saturday they go on the road to play Texas A&M who I believe are ranked #5. Would be huge to knock off three top 5 teams in a 2 week span. ISU has been amazing against ranked teams over the last 5 years.

Warren would be on pace to break the career rushing record. I have mixed feelings about that. I love me some Mike Warren, but Troy Davis is my favorite Cyclone of all time.

Yall got a hell of a new coaching staff. Basically 90% of the Toledo staff is now at I-State. These guys can recruit like crazy and they are great at game planning. Tom Manning was named offensive line coach of the year. Enjoy them! I have always liked ISU a bit but now they are my 2nd favorite team.

I agree! These guys haven't even coached a game at ISU yet and I already love them. They are destroying the recruiting trail and I think they will win a lot of games in the Big 12. The Cyclones have talent on the roster and they showed last year that they can hang with some of the big boys, they just couldn't pull off the wins. They probably should have had 6 wins and made a bowl game, but they pissed some games down their legs.
