Had Twitter existed when Iowa linebacker Chad Greenway was improperly whistled offsides during a successful onside kick, it would have become a viral incident.

Past Iowa sporting events that would have broken Twitter

We are tackling the best question supplied by Iowa fans each day. If you’d like to submit a question, tweet to Scott Dochterman here. Look for our Iowa Question of the Day every Monday through Friday. Go here to see all of our previous answers.

ANSWER: As we approach our final week here at Land of 10, let’s have a little fun. The question for Monday deals with how Iowa fans would have responded on Twitter over past sports topics.

Some wanted to gauge the reaction to epic football victories, such as the 1985 No. 1 Iowa defeat of No. 2 Michigan on the game’s final play, or Drew Tate’s 56-yard touchdown pass to Warren Holloway to win the Capital One Bowl in 2005. Other responses range from former men’s basketball coach Lute Olson calling former official Jim Bain “a criminal” to the recruiting incident involving Bruce Pearl and Jimmy Collins over prospect Deon Thomas. Then there are the games,

Then there are the wacky, such as the 2002 storming of the Metrodome or the “Fainting Irish” incident in 1954. Of course, there are the painful, such as Iowa’s 1987 Elite Eight loss to UNLV and an official incorrectly penalizing Chad Greenway for offsides on a successful onside kick in the 2006 Outback Bowl.

Here are your responses. Enjoy!
