The Mid-Morning Dump - 11/7/13

WE'RE SMART AND GOOD.. OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. The Cyclones are 25th nationally in the ratio between grad rates and Director's Cup finish.

NEALY'S TURN. DeVondrick Nealy had to watch the revolving door of ISU running backs, but now he has his shot, and he's making the most of it.

HEY, WE'RE PICKED TO LOSE CLOSE! Jake Trotter and the guest picker both go TCU, but both are close losses!

LATEST ON QBS. Paul Rhoads talks after practice about the open QB competition, as well as the injury situation.

TCU PREVIEW. Frogs o' War previews Iowa State, and they're picking Iowa State to win (probably in jest).

SUNDAY OPENER. Iowa State takes on UNC-Wilmington on Sunday to kick off the real basketball season.

KANE'S A CHANGED MAN. DeAndre Kane had issues with anger in the past, but the loss of his father changed him. There's also more about the homeless man he gave his shoes to. Million pair of shoes? NCAA violation!

MCKAY HIGHLIGHTS. Here's a good video of new Cyclone Jameel McKay destroying the competition while at Indian Hills.

SALT THEIR CAMPUS TOO. Iowa State women's basketball beat up Carthage 78-49.

RHOADS 59TH. USA Today's annual list of coaching salaries/proof of America's misplaced priorities is out and Paul Rhoads is right in the middle.

BEST THURSDAY EVER? The matchups between Oregon-Stanford and Oklahoma-Baylor might make this the best Thursday of college football ever.

SO, JUST LIKE "I WILL NOT BE THE ALABAMA COACH?" Nick Saban denies rumors he is interested in the Texas job, which means he's taking the job, based on past history.

WIGGINS CAN THROW DOWN. Andrew Wiggins took exactly one game to show why he's so hyped.

AN HONORARY BLACK GUY? Some of his Dolphins teammates have taken to defending Richie Incognito's racial slurs by saying he's an honorary black guy.

HE NEEDS THE HELMET FOR THE FALLING GLASS. Winnipeg's Adam Pardy was checked through the plexiglass, then a drunk Chicago fan stole his helmet while his lady friend poured beer on Pardy's head.
