    Yes, of course it was. I remember quite well watching it......Jeff Kinney with his torn apart uniform.....the Jet flying by the sooners, etc.

    Funny coming from a fan base whose last outright Conference title happened when “Back to The Future” was in theaters.

    “Legendary” coach Hayden Fry has less outright conference titles than TO has outright NATIONAL championships.

    I’m not defending the troll but TO is in a league with a small handful of coaches in history. Comparing a coach that brought Iowa out of 20-some straight losing seasons to national relevance isn’t exactly fair.

    Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Horatio Magellan Crunch.

    And my remark was in reply is
    It was a reply to said troll.. but that’s kinda my point. We have two very different definitions of the word “legendary”

    You really should head back to the Iowa board and get into the thread discussing whether or not Ferentz deserves a statue at Kinnick, I heard it’s a quite entertaining. As long as you’re here, I’ve been asking this question around to various Iowa fans, but haven’t received an answer, why did Iowa name their stadium after a Nebraska high school football player?

    Lol And Iowa claims a national title awarded by playboy magazine in the same year NASA was founded. Your trying to make fun of Nebraska for winning multiple national titles? If that’s your angle, I suggest you go back to cyclonefanatic.com. Plays better over there.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What is interesting in the comparison of Osborne and Fry is that Osborne had the better record, program, titles, all Americans, heisman winners and so on... by a landslide. But the coaching tree he produced was minimal. Hayden Fry's coaching tree has been much more productive. Why I wonder? Is it because Osborne's staff stuck around and Fry's sought out head coaching gigs?

    Fry is Iowa’s Bob Devaney brought the program back from rock bottom both programs hadn't’ been winning over .500 for around 2 decades.

    From 1962-1980 Iowa didn’t have a team that finished above .500.

    Actually they renamed it after Nile Kinnick
    Why did a high school in Nebraska name its football stadium after an Iowa Heisman Trophy winner.

    We would have named our stadium after a Heisman winner except then we would have had to build three stadiums

    I have no issue with Nebraska’s National titles very impressive, my point was somebody (not me) hijacked the thread by dismissing Minnesota’s and I pointed out Nebraska started their run basically back in the Stone Age of face masks and non Leather Helmets. My point was they didn’t just start counting in 1970.

    No you're idiotic post was that they wore leather helmets in the 1970's.

    Since you're impressed with Nebraska which school has more impressive National titles.
    Minnesota or Nebraska.... Troll that one for us.

    I’m not expecting to see Eric Crouch Stadium anytime soon and Nile winning the Heisman had zero with Kinnick being named after him absolutely zero.

    Of course there’s a high school stadium named after a highly touted football player who graduated from and played football at a Nebraska high school.
    Now I understand your fan bases’ inferiority complex. Nearly anything notable about Iowa football has a Nebraska tie.

    Well sense you seem to get off on colored TV, that I guess was invented in 1972 in whatever universe you currently reside in. so explain to me what Iowa has done since then? Your discrediting your only Heisman winner and only (claimed) national championship?

    Nebraska still has 14 conference titles, 2 Heisman winners and 3 national titles.

    Once again you did not fully comprehend my post, I did not say "I am impressed" what I inferred was at the time 5 were impressive. Since you basically asked or invited me to give my take, I and thousands of other football aficionado's don't really give any championships won before the playoffs were created to be anything other than a popularity contest. Those trophies represent something mythical. they certainly weren't won on field in the same manner as Basketball or Baseball champions do. At some point in the future an asterisk will be placed along everyone who won one prior to the playoffs it only makes common sense to do so.

    Can we stop talking about Iowa on these threads?

    Did Duggan commit somewhere or is it still TBD?

    Ya Beating the #2,3 and 4 teams in the country in 1971 ( at seasons end never been done since)isn't winning them on the field...Put a asterisk on that fact something no Iowa football team will ever accomplish by going undefeated.

    I'm done with you're knowledge of college football history.

    Your trolling is relentless. Why you haven’t been sniped by a mod is beyond me.

    There will not be asterisks in your or my lifetime... those games were won on the field of play against top teams.

    I’m not sure where all those teams were ranked at the time, I’ll give you the benefit of doubt....
    But by season end Final poll which probably isn’t fair to Iowa because of that fact that it wasn’t after the bowls but it is what it is...

    Iowa lost #1 Minnesota ( who lost the Rose Bowl)
    Iowa beat #8 Ohio St
    Iowa beat #11 Kansas
    Iowa beat #15 Michigan St
    Iowa beat #19 Purdue

    And you’re correct I’m no spring chicken but I do know my football history.

    Sorry guys. Could care less what happened 30, 40 or even 50 years ago. Bottom line is Nebraska is getting back on track. To stay on topic, I hope Duggan is a Husker. If not, next man up.

    I think his big question mark will be his durability. This season will show a better idea as he will play better competition all year. 4A on the west side is not good. He was injured a couple times last year and once his Soph year wasnt he?

    Dear God how embarrassing. I read a deal a while ago that went through one of those seasons and it was top 10 team after top 10 team so I let my eyes perceive me while looking back. I’ll see if I can find what I had read or watched.

    Ok I’ve finally found my footing. Irrelevant as it may be to this thread and anyone here: 1960 rankings at the time of game.

    Beat Oregon State #10
    Beat #6 NW
    Beat #13 MSU
    Beat #12 Wisconsin
    Beat #10 Purdue
    Beat #19 Kansas
    Lost #3 Minnesota
    Beat #3 Ohio State

    I saw that two of those teams ended up being under .500 so it’s obviously not the same as now a days. I just found it crazy. Was a schedule like this common back then?

    Does your punkass post here because even Iowa fans don't like you?

    I went to that HS Northwest High School in Omaha. The stadium is Nile Kinnick Stadium. Never understood that as Kinnick graduated from Benson HS in Omaha

    I only recall the hand and leg injury last year but you could be correct, bound to happen when you are a one man offense and carry the load.

    You don't make playoffs with a backup QB then make playoffs with a one man offense that doesn't play most of the year. That team has some talent on it and a damn talented coaching staff.
