Monday Morning Coffee: Seneca Wallace Goes Bananas

Start your work week off right with Monday Morning Coffee, where Fanhouse scours YouTube for the finest college football footage available. Either that or we give up after a couple minutes and just post the "I Like Turtles" kid.

The most infuriating opponent in Big XII history may be Seneca Wallace, the juco transfer quarterback for Iowa State in 2001 and 2002. While guys like Vince Young and Tommie Frazier were surrounded by unbelievable talent (and have the rings to show for it), Wallace single-handedly propelled ISU to victory on numerous occasions, all while playing with a reckless abandon that usually caused opponents' fans to yell things like, "TACKLE HIM TACKLE HIM AAAAGGGHAGHGH" as he turns a sack into a gain of 17.

On this play, Wallace is flushed out of the pocket and chased all the way back to the 32-yard line, a full 20 yards behind scrimmage. Defenders have pinned him near the sideline, and all that remains is the simple task of bringing him down.

Um, Texas Tech? EPIC FAIL, sirs. Take special note of the defender at :23 as he throws himself at nothing in particular, like he's a character in NCAA '09 being controlled by someone who's really terrible.

Iowa State would go on to win 31-17 to improve to 6-1 and enter the Top 10 for the first (and only) time in school history. The next week, they traveled to Norman, Oklahoma to lose to the Sooners in a 49-3 squeaker. They won only one game the rest of the year and haven't sniffed relevancy since. But hey, sweet run.
