Anyone have memories to share? Guessing Iowa State game was one?

Beating #7 Illinois State in the opener in 2007 at AbNormal in the final minute was a big one...
Conference championships in 2004, 2011, and 2012...2004 at Morehead and 2012 at Jacksonville (winning on the road made them even better.)
Come from behind wins in the final seconds at Dayton (in 2014 on a TD pass to Michael Hudson with :18 left) and Jacksonville (in 2016 on a TD pass to Steve Doran with :16 left)...those were sweet.
Lots more, but those come to mind pretty quick.

Even though I wasn't at the game, 2007 over Illinois State was the best.  I was apprehensive about the post-Ash era, but had a different outlook after the 'Dogs beat I-AA's preseason #7.  When Augie pulled in the winning catch, I was jumping up and down, yelling, etc.  I was thinking that Drake would surely convince Loney to stay long term.  We were all going to the Super Bowl, right?

Too bad the season didn't stay on that trajectory.  The team's off-field behavior at the end of the year was particularly disappointing.

I was friends with a father of a QB on that Illinois State team. He wasn't too happy about that game. I gloated.
If I remember correctly, ISU really didn't have a good year, as it turned out.
