Hayden Fry It was just the mystique of 28 years since we've won over there. I thought, well gee, whatever it is that's been the jinx or the bug or whatever, here we go again. But our defense wouldn't have any part of it. They kept rising up.
-- Hayden Fry
Quoted in the Daily Iowan, when asked about giving up two fumbles deep in their own territory.
