The Mid-Morning Dump - 6/23/14

WHAT MAKES MANGINO TICK? Mark Mangino has lived an interesting life.

#LENGTH. After thriving on a small lineup, Fred Hoiberg finds himself in possession of some actual size on the roster.

QB COMMIT. Dominic DeLira out of Texas powerhouse HS Lake Travis has committed to the Cyclones.

CCL RECAP. CBD wasn't able to get to Friday's games, but Chris Williams has you covered.

#CHILLIN4CHARITY. Watch Bill Fennelly get hit with cold water.

MOCK DRAFT MANIA. CF rounds up all the projections on draft day for Melvin Ejim and DeAndre Kane.

GUT PUNCH. The USMNT was all ready to advance to the next round thanks to Jermaine Jones' beautiful goal, then America was hit with the Cyclone experience.

SO HOW CAN THEY ADVANCE? Group stage tiebreakers are super convoluted, but basically, cheer for Portugal.

EVEN BASEBALL PLAYERS WOULD RATHER WATCH SOCCER. Kole Calhoun was watching Portugal destroy U.S. dreams.

OBVIOUS NEWS IS OBVIOUS. Jurgen Klinsmann says he won't pre-arrange a tie with his home country to ensure both teams advance. You have to appreciate his shot at Mexico though.

AUSTIN OUT. Isaiah Austin was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome and will not play in the NBA.

JIM DELANY, STILL STUPID. Jim Delany is making arguments against paying players by using the Rose Bowl, because B1G.

PATRIOTISM AND JOEL EMBIID DON'T MIX. Joel Embiid is a Real Madrid fan, which means he was sort of cheering for Portugal. Many did not like this.
