What is your favorite memory of all-time at an ISU sporting event? It can be from any sport. Tell your story to CN.
Here is what some of CN's most passionate subscribers had to say.
Note that while all of the responses were great, only a small portion of them are listed.
My personal favorite response of the day was what Matmann22 had to say.

All of the posts so far have been
outstanding! But, for me, I can't look back without looking forward at the same
I have to say hiring Jamie Pollard.
Those other memories keep the belief alive that we will reach the top of the mountain. But, now it isn't just a belief. I know we will get there!!"
Hmmm....tough one. I'd have to say either Marcus Fizer's dunk over Chris Mihm or ISU's drubbing of UCLA in the Sweet 16 in 2000. Also not exactly a moment but a quote I fondly remember was Jamaal Tinsley when asked about Phog Allen saying "it's just another gym.
This is an easy one for me. It was
the day I became a Cyclone. September 11, 1999 was a special day for me as ISU
beat the hawks in Jack Trice for the first time in 16 some years. I had just
started attending ISU that fall and I had grown up a hawk fan just like everyone
else in NW
There will never be a better memory to me than the day I became a member of the Cyclone family. (Please don't tell my wife!)
December 1987. Iowa State/Iowa. Lafester goes off for 54 points in an overtime extravaganza. That game had a GREAT atmosphere, and my friends and I were sitting 3 rows behind the East basket so we could see all the action close up.
I've got to back to the 2002
BJ Schaben and I just sat in the back row of the press box laughing so hard we almost burst our bladders.
And then talking to Jordan Carstens one-on-one in the locker room afterwards was like talking to an exhausted gladiator. Dude is all man.
To top it off, as I'm walking out of Kinnick that night I see one lone Cyclone fan still sitting in the stands. He gets up, turns to leave, and then turns around one last time and flips off the near empty stadium.
True story, I kid you not.
Beating KU in 1996 at KC for the last Big 8 MBB tourney championship. First time ISU had won any title of any kind in a major sport in a very long time. Great atmosphere at the game with Kemper half full of ISU fans and half full of KU fans. The stunned look on the KU fans and utter joy of the ISU fans at the end of that game was priceless and something I'll never forget.
Then last year when Lamarcus Hicks picked off Manson and took it to the house. I have never heard the Jack louder. I was sitting in the SE corner right in front of the play and my sunglasses were completely mangled by countless fans jumping on top of each other. The looks on all the Hawk fans faces were just priceless and something I'll never forget.

Remember, if it's not for the Cyclones, about the Cyclones, and nothing but the Cyclones, then it's not really worth talking about.
