It was 1959. Iowa State was no longer a college. The new University was the center of worldwide attention with the visit of Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev during the Cold War. The Cyclone football team started with 41 players but had only 30 by the time the season began. But this team, overwhelmingly picked for last place in the Big Eight, embraced the no excuses toughness of its coaching staff. Click here to see a trailer of the documentary.
The result was an historic season by these Cyclones, diminutive in size and number, who became nationally as “The Dirty Thirty.” Through interviews and historic film footage this Cyclones.tv documentary tells the story behind the story of an unforgettable fall that sported an unforgettable season.
