The Mid-Morning Dump - 8/2/13

FANFEST SET. Sunday, August 25th will be the date of the annual fanfest, where you can snag gear and interact with Iowa State athletes and coaches.

LESS CHAOTIC CAMP. Having Sam Richardson set as the starting QB will make this year's camp a lot less crazy.

MORE EXTROVERTED ON THE FIELD. Jacques Washington is extremely engaging off the field, but he's working to match as a leader on the field.

GOLF CHALLENGE. Feel like playing some golf with Iowa State golfers while raising some money for them? Enter the Cyclone Golf Challenge.

TCU TAKES A HIT. Starting left tackle Tayo Fabuluje has left the Horned Frogs for personal reasons.

BEST OF MEDIA DAYS. Dennis Dodd gives the Big 12 the best media days "performance".

FOUR IN TOP 25. Oklahoma State leads the four Big 12 teams to make the preseason coaches poll.

NEW BRACKETING RULES DON'T REALLY MATTER TO US. The Big 12 will likely be the conference least affected by the new NCAA basketball bracketing rules.

THIS SEEMS LIKE OVERKILL. Texas A&M-Commerce has the most giant midfield logo you'll ever see.

JUNGLE BIRD PK. Just a dude dressed as a bird invading the pitch and taking penalty kicks.

MORE RILEY COOPER. Teammate LeSean McCoy will no longer be friends with Cooper, even after forgiving him.

BUT FENWAY IS MORE RACIST. Comparing Fenway to Amistad seems like a poor idea.

HERNANDEZ SAYS HE'S INNOCENT. Aaron Hernandez proclaims his innocence in a letter to a pen pal from prison.
