The Mid-Morning Dump - 1/15/14

LUKE WINN'S KEEPING THE FAITH. Still one of his "Magic Eight" teams that will win the NCAA tourney.

DUHHHHHH. Brian Hamilton writes that Iowa State will need to improve their shooting to rebound from a tough two game stretch.

SEASON WRAP. Brandon Chatmon wraps up the 2013 football season for the Cyclones and names Bundrage and George as the MVPs.

BRINSON DECOMMITS. Iowa State recruit Dedric Brinson has de-committed, with his coach (curiously?) citing oversigning as the reason.

GETTING BACK ON TRACK. The women hope to return to their winning ways against West Virginia tonight.

LIVING UP TO EXPECTATIONS. Kyven Gadson is trying to live up to his "Showtime" nickname.

DOWN TO A 3. Chris Dobbertean's projections have ISU falling to a 3 seed.

HIPSTER NFL LOGOS. Oh, this is terrific.

GOOD JOB, ME. Marc Gasol invents the self buttslap.

GOING LATERALLY-ISH. Jeremy Pruitt, FSU's national championship winning DC, is going to Georgia.

ASH TO OSU. Former Cyclone Chris Ash is leaving Arkansas to co-DC the Ohio State defense, adding to former ISU assistant Tom Herman at offense.

POKEMON OVER CLASS. This Reddit thread about student-athletes' treatment at schools is fascinating, particularly the part about Lenzelle Smith Jr.

THE CUBS ARE MAD. All your mean comments about the Cubs new mascot are "despicable".

SOCCER 30 FOR 30s. ESPN's attempt to make soccer big in the US is continuing with eight 30 for 30s which sound pretty damn interesting.
