Iowa State's Mount Rushmore
By ESPN.com staff
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
Iowa State's history isn't as rich as some Big 12 schools, but the Cyclones still have several worthy candidates if they ever constructed a Mount Rushmore for its football history.
Here are my selections:
- Earle Bruce -- Taking the Cyclones to a career record above .500 deserves something, doesn't it?
- Troy Davis -- Two-time rushing leader was second in the Heisman in 1996, narrowly losing to Danny Wuerffel.
- Jack Trice -- His heroic but fleeting career has served as an inspiration for every Cyclone who followed him.
- Seneca Wallace -- His knack for making big plays remains memorable seven years after his last game.
I thought long and hard about Dan McCarney, who holds the school record for victories and had a run of bowl appearances earlier in the decade.
Anybody I missed?
