I love that memory. I'm another Ohio Illini, who lived in Snyder my freshman & soph years ('84-'86) in a room on the third floor that looked down through Memorial Stadium to the dome of Assembly Hall.

Alas, we did not beat Iowa 50-0. We lost to them 59-0 in Kinnick in '85 a week after playing #4 Michigan to a 3-3 tie at home.

I remember that game because the preceding week at practice in the stadium MIke White blared simulated crown noise through the PA system, which made several late afternoons in Snyder fairly annoying. All to no avail, of course. Iowa had a top 10 team that season.
