Ames has to be one of the most godforsaken hellholes on the planet


I remember one year it was so cold their coach asked Mac if he’d agree to play the game with no clock stoppages. Another year the game was played in an ice storm. Another, the game was delayed due to a tornado.

It probably hurt our recruiting just knowing you’d have to play there twice in your career...
