A daily collection of links on the Cyclones and sports in general.
DOWN GO THE FIGHTING CAMELS! Iowa State defeated Campbell by a 88-68 score last night in Chris Babb's return from suspension.
PASSING THE EYE TEST. Sam Richardson's debut was met with resounding approval from Steve Malchow.
JAKE AND JARED ALSO APPROVE.
S/O to the chief @sbrichardson12 Great game!! Lil bro is a baller for sure! I'm not at all surprised by his performance tho.— Jared Barnett (@JB_seven) November 18, 2012
ROYCE DRAMA ENSUES. Royce White is now saying he's willing to walk away from the NBA. This resulted in the Harlem Globetrotters offering him a job. Adrian Wojnarowski says all of Royce's drama may cost him his NBA career.
BOWL PROJECTION TIME. Perhaps expect Baylor to be eligible for a bowl, Jason Kirk has moved Iowa State to the Independence Bowl as a fill in, David Ubben still has the Cyclones going to the Meineke Car Care Bowl, while ESPN's main site has Iowa State going to the Buffalo Wild Wings bowl in Tempe.
LADIES ROLL. The women destroyed North Dakota 73-34, highlighted by Brynn Williamson's career game.
REALIGNMENT NEVER SLEEPS. Maryland is meeting today to decide if they want to accept an invite to the Big Ten, Rutgers will follow if Maryland decides to go. The only question left is how Maryland will pay the massive ACC buyout.
ALL ABOUT MONEY. The two moves could result in an additional 200 million for the Big Ten's cable television revenues.
LES MILES IS AWESOME. The four stages of a Les press conference. What a character.
DOOLEY IS OUT. Tennessee fired Derek Dooley after 3 years of disappointing results. Cue another round of Paul Rhoads rumors. Not sure if Tennessee has any interest, but this is the open/will be open job that would concern me most.
AN ODE TO COLLEGE FOOTBALL. After another crazy weekend, Spencer Hall writes an ode to the game we love.
