Iowa State 37, Okie State 31

Just got home from Ames a few minutes ago. Great game, probably the best college football game I've ever seen in person. Double overtime, with the ISU defense holding one of the most prolific offenses in college football to 24 points in regulation. The best part of the night was that Iowa State beat a team that I respect so much, with a coach who would be at the top of my "wish list" if ISU were in the market for a coach to replace Paul Rhoads.

With the tragedy that happened last night where OSU lost their women's basketball coach and three other passengers in a small plane crash in Arkansas, football seems like such a trivial pursuit in comparison. Thoughts and prayers go out to the OSU family, who had to deal with a similar plane crash about 10 years ago that decimated their men's basketball program. That's just awful, whether they're coaches, teachers, or just friends and family.

Of course, despite the tragedy.........Iowa State doesn't knock off the #2 team in the country every day, so I'm going to celebrate just a little bit here. Since this is the AoSHQ, I think you know how that celebration is going to unfold.

Here's a bonus video....because Coach Mike Gundy is "The Man". Jesus, I really love this guy.

(embedding on the original video was disabled, so I substituted a "mixtape" of his rant instead)

Good game Okie State. You came to play, but Iowa State played just a little better tonight. Sorry about the loss, but better you than us.

UPDATE: Coach's postgame locker room speech is up on YouTube
