POTW ROYCE. White earned the Lute Olson Award as the collegeinsider.com Player of The Week. Outdueling Thomas Robinson probably didn't hurt.
LETDOWN is what the Cyclones are trying to avoid as they play Purple Kansas today. Under 1000 tickets remain, so if you aren't already going, snatch a ticket up and let's make it 2 sellouts in a row.
GOOD MOOD(Y). Nikki Moody was named Big 12 Freshman of the Week in averaging 13.5 points and 6 rebounds last week.
MORE HONORS FOR KO. Kelechi Osemele picks up The Variety Trophy, awarded to "the outstanding senior football player from Iowa, Northern Iowa, and Iowa State."
A HOME "BOWL GAME"? At least one AD is in favor of keeping only 16 bowl games, and having others on campuses.
AN ALTERNATE HISTORY OF TEBUS AND RG3. What happens if Tim Tebow signed with Alabama? Possibly no Gene Chizik National Championship, that's what. And what happens if RG3 played for Texas? Does our 2010 win happen without Garrett Gilbert's ineptitude?
ALL'S NOT WELL FOR GENE. Speaking of Chizik, despite a National Championship, player attrition is at an all time high at Auburn.
ANOTHER RICK BARNES COACHING CLINIC. After expecting to see man defense, Texas decided to dribble right into Mizzou's zone with a timeout in their back pocket. Predictably, the result was a hurried shot with no chance to go in, and Texas falls 67-66.
