Cyclone history for sale

Iowa State’s 9-7 victory over Nebraska — and the celebration that ensued — will forever live on in the hearts, minds and computers of Cyclone fans.

The historic win — ISU’s first at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln since 1977 — can now forever be a conversation piece in your living room.

Better act fast though.

A football used during the game is being auctioned off at ISU’s athletic web site ( until 4 p.m. Monday.  It is signed by Coach Paul Rhoads and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

This could be a whopper of a profit for the athletic department, compared with the typical auction fare.

The bidding was up to $750 as of Friday night. It began at $200. Eleven bids later, the price of poker went up substantially.

If this goes anything like eBay auctions, the bidding could get interesting during Monday’s final hour.

I’ll post the winning bid once it goes final.
