The Mid-Morning Dump - 12/28/12

MEMPHIS DAY TWO. More practice, and a visit to St. Jude Children's Hospital and to see the Peabody Ducks.

MESS' DREAM. Courtney Messingham is living out his dreams as Iowa State's offensive coordinator.

SLOWING DOWN THE RUSH. Keeping Tulsa's pass rush contained will be key for Messingham's crew in the bowl game.

WIRE TO WIRE. Jake Knott and AJ Klein began the year on David Ubben's preseason defensive team and ended the year the exact same way.

UNDERRATED DEFENDERS. Durrell Givens and Jake McDonough both make the list of the Big 12's underrated defensive players.

BEARS RISING. Baylor found a defense and relied on their running game to absolutely smoke UCLA in a game that was actually MORE lopsided than the 49-26 score indicates. Nick Florence broke RG3's single season school passing record.

HUDL CHANGING FOOTBALL. A look at how technology is changing the way Oklahoma does film and game prep.

BWW SHENANIGANS. Mark Dantonio looks completely unamused with his Buffalo Wild Wing sauce gift basket, while Michigan State players beat TCU players in a wing eating challenge. Big Ten fatties indeed.

NATTY LIGHT! In the category of best cheap beer, Natty Light is definitely not one of them.

PLATFORM CHANGES. SB Nation has listened to all your feedback and changes to the United platform will be rolled out soon. As always, if you have additional feedback, leave them in that thread and they'll be answered quickly by SB Nation support.
