VIDEO: A Walk Down Iowa-Michigan State Memory Lane

New, 46 comments

Is it time for some YouTube videos spotlighting past Iowa-Michigan State games?  You're damn right it's time for that.  So without further ado...

From our old friend The Hawkeye Historian:

1985

  • It's certainly not just an ABC/ESPN thing: CBS loves the random combine/cornfield shot, too.
  • Seeing Hayden with dark hair is almost as weird as Ferentz with dark hair.
  • That CBS Sports opening graphic was boss and I don't care what you say.
  • Chuck Long: so damn good.
  • (2:31) Those male cheerleader shorts are a little too snug.
  • Neckrolls and tearaway jerseys... those were the days.
  • (4:09) Well, Lorenzo White had himself quite a game.
  • Pretty sure Ricky Stanzi would have loved throwing the ball to Mike Flagg.
  • NAKED EFFING BOOTLEG!  Sadly, holding the ball out like that might (probably?) have been a penalty now.

From our new friend HawkeyeFan123:

2004

  • Tom Busch touchdown?!
  • Drew Tate doing all kinds of Drew Tate things: scrambling around in the pocket, finding receivers open downfield, throwing some pin-point passes.  I loved watching him so damn much.
  • (3:20) Probably the last good Jermelle Lewis highlight in an Iowa uniform.  Sigh.
  • Ah, the 2004 defense... yeah, they weren't too shabby.  I miss having a defensive line that could rush the passer like that.  Or actually tackle.

And just in case you want some recent history

I love Dolph and Eddie, but "TOUCHDOWN!  TOUCHDOWN IOWA" doesn't compare to "SEVEN GOT SIX!"

Sad Sparty fan will never, ever get old, though.
