The Mid-Morning Dump - 10/17/12

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

MORE HONORS FOR FRED. Coach Hoiberg will receive the Ray Pillar of Character Award.

HIGH IMPACT NIANG. Georges Niang may be just a freshman, but he possesses intangibles beyond his years.

F/+ LOVES US. The rankings system that usually dislikes Iowa State sees us as the 14th best team in the country right now.

OVERACHIEVING YET AGAIN. Ubben's Iowa State midseason report.

SNYDER DOESN'T TEACH GEOGRAPHY.

A TEXAS-CENTRIC THIS WEEK IN SCHADENFREUDE. So much Longhorn anger, including yet another attractive female's anger being caught on camera. Even in defeat, those Longhorns come out better than Texas Tech (dancing ginger), Baylor (dancing nerd), and A&M (yell leaders - no link necessary to explain this one). Personally, I enjoy this Shaggy Bevo thread about how long Longhorn fans have been suffering.

MAC WINS! Dan McCarney's North Texas squad pulled off an upset win on the strength of a 78(!) yard TD pass. Yeah, I don't believe it either.

PAT FORDE IS GANKING CYENTIST'S IDEAS. A very politically driven Forde-Yard Dash.

SOLID #2. The Big 12 falls further behind the SEC in conference power rankings this week.

COCKY MOUNTAINEERS? Texas Tech safety Cody Davis writes about how unbelievably cocky WVU players were on Saturday..

COWBOY OFFENSE FOR DUMMIES. Grantland breaks down Oklahoma State's high-octane offense.

THE ALPHABETICAL IS WRITING LETTERS FOR SABAN. Apologies for all!

LAST WIN IN STILLWATER. The highlight is the fumble at 0:20. Positively Nebraska-esque.
