The Mid-Morning Dump - 10/1/12

A daily collection of links about the Cyclones and sports in general.

OUR PUNTER IS OUR BEST PLAYER! Kirby Van Der Kamp is awesome.. though I think most of us would like to see him less.

TIME FOR A QB CHANGE? Bryce Miller of the Des Moines Register certainly thinks so, while Chris Williams urges us to look at the bigger picture.

TECH DEFENSE IS FOR REAL. Even Steve Malchow is buying into the Texas Tech defensive hype.

BUT OUR DEFENSE ISN'T BAD EITHER. Ian Smith writes about the Cyclones' defensive effort given the lack of help from the offense.

UBBEN STILL LIKES AJ. Klein picked up Ubben's award for best defensive performance for matching Iowa State's offensive output.

TECH WEEKEND. The soccer team also lost to Texas Tech this weekend, 2-1.

AT LEAST VOLLEYBALL'S GOOD. The Cyclone ladies swept TCU this weekend.

GENO SMITH GETS SHUTDOWN FULLBACK EXCITED. Just like the rest of us, the Fullbackers loved them some Baylor- West Virginia.

RIDICULOUS GRAB. Lost in the Geno Smith hype was J.D. Woods' INSANE one handed grab.

CHIP KELLY IS THE MASTER OF HALFTIME ADJUSTMENTS. Bill Connelly looks into the puzzle that is Oregon.

MS. JONES IS SAD. Whitney Hand talks about how hard it is to see Landry Jones struggle this year.

HOW DID I MISS THIS? Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud played the cat game on Sportscenter. My new favorite player.
