I started thinking about the Iowa State game tonight which led me to thinking about getting buzzer-beaten last year which led me to thinking about the football game that shall not be discussed on the blog which led me to wondering how long it’s been since we won a football or basketball game in Ames.
Which led to this, a list of how long it’s been since we last won a road football or basketball game against every other Big 12 team (including the newbies):
OU – 9 years and 18 days
Baylor – 3 years and 4 months
Iowa State – 3 years and 17 days
Kansas State – 2 years and 4 months
Kansas – 32 days
Texas – 25 days
Tech – 21 days
WVU – 11 days
TCU – 7 days
The OU stat is truly unbelievable. We haven’t beaten them in football or basketball in Norman since February 16, 2004. I-Mac had 21 and 6 that game and OSU won 65-52.
The Baylor thing is a scheduling anomaly as our 2011 team would have housed them in Stillwater, Waco, on the moon, wherever.
The Iowa State thing is legit though. Here’s what I wrote after Scott Christopherson ripped our hearts out last year…
Scott Christopherson hits a running, Adam Morrison-like 25-footer for the win and the Iowa State student section starts chanting “just like football!”
I am in hell.
Here’s to a win in Hilton tonight.
