The Mid-Morning Dump - 8/7/13

SEASON TICKET SALES RECORD. For the third straight year, Iowa State has broken the season ticket sales record. The incredible stat is that the season ticket base has increased 20% since Rhoads, and 81% since Pollard.

KLENAKIS IN CHARGE. Chris Klenakis is going old school to help get the much maligned offensive line turned around.

ALMOST AS TERRIBLE AS CARLY RAE. Raul Ibanez does his best Carly Rae Jepsen first pitch impression.
