12-0. The ladies are also 1-0 in conference play after a 71-49 rout of TCU. Kidd Blaskowsky led the Cyclones' long range barrage with 7 threes.
FOUR SEED? Joe Lunardi has Iowa State slotted as a four seed right now.
KANE > SMART? Luke Winn has Iowa State at #6 in his power rankings, and also points out that DeAndre Kane is having just as good of a season as Marcus Smart is.

BEHANAN DRAWING ISU INTEREST. In a completely shocking development, Fred Hoiberg is interested in Louisville castoff Chane Behanan.
THE NEXT KO? Wendell Taiese is drawing favorable comparisons to Kelechi Osemele from the coaching staff.

THE PEOPLE'S COACH. Fans remember Johnny Orr as the most pleasant, down to earth coach.
NO MORE GRADUATE TRANSFERS? The NCAA was trying to figure out how to make transfers easier for the student-athlete, so of course now they're thinking about eliminating the graduate transfer rule.
BIG GAME BOB IS BACK. Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight lit up Alabama for 4 TDs, and the Sooners won the Sugar Bowl as a 17 point underdog.

BAMA TEARS. Deadspin has a gallery of all the distraught Tide fans it takes to fulfill your schadenfreude fix.

UPDATE THAT ROLODEX, TEAM USA. A text meant for Team USA forward Ryan Kesler went to a 67 year old Canadian man.
BOBBY RYAN IS PISSED. I guess that's what happens when you don't just leave a guy off the Team USA roster, but you rip his personality apart.
