God of Iowa State athletics, Jamie Pollard, will be at Arrowhead Stadium tomorrow morning for a "major college football announcement." Kansas State Athletic Director Bob Krause will also be there. Rumor is the Cyclones and Wildcats will split a couple of football games in Kansas City, likely in 2009 and 2010. That's great news for Kansas City Cyclone fans. Not so great news for businesses in Ames (and Manhattan), with the possibility of losing a home game.
The last time the Cyclones played in Arrowhead -- a 38-31 loss to No. 3-ranked Florida State in the 2002 Eddie Robinson Classic -- was the most thrilling football game that I have ever witnessed.
Legendary Iowa State quarterback Seneca Wallace engineered what was almost the greatest comeback in Cyclone history, rallying from a 24 point deficit and nearly permanently retiring Bobby Bowden with a chest grabber.
Down seven with four seconds left in the game, Wallace dove head-first for the end zone. The officials ruled Wallace out of bounds and the Cyclones lost (then Iowa State coach Dan McCarney later said the tape showed Wallace scoring).
I'm not so sure. I'd rather focus on the future, which includes whipping Ron "Grimace" Prince's Mildcats in Arrowhead.
