The Mid-Morning Dump - 10/11/12

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

SCRAPPY. HUSTLES. Josh Lenz's speed is deceptive to many... probably because he's white.

IS UBBEN STARTING TO LIKE THE CYCLONES? He's picking Kansas State at Iowa State as the upset alert of the week, then picks the Cyclones to (only?) lose by 1.

MOST IMPRESSIVE DEFENSE. At this time, Iowa State is leading the Big 12 blog poll for most impressive defense at 41%.

EXCELLENT PROJECTIONS. The Sporting News has Iowa State headed to the Holiday Bowl against Oregon State right now. I wouldn't exactly be disappointed with San Diego.

MORE TRADITIONAL, SAME RESULTS? Iowa State will be actually using a point guard this year, but are hoping for another trip to the tournament.

REBOUNDING TO RUN. Better rebounding leads to more fast breaks.

RIOT VOLLEYBOWL WIN. The Cyclone ladies swept the Mountaineers last night.

THAT OTHER BIG GAME IN THE BIG 12. Bill Connelly previews Texas-Oklahoma and the Red River Rivalry.

SCHADENFREUDE GOES IN DEPTH! Jon Bois charts FSU's misery during their upset at the hands of NC State.

MIKE LEACH IS ANGRY. Perhaps inspired by his time at Texas Tech with Bob Knight, he's doing the whole calling out the seniors thing.
