The Mid-Morning Dump - 7/18/14

WAS HOPING FOR HIGH MOTOR. Georges Niang checks in at #10 on The Big Lead's Best Players in College Basketball, and they note his high IQ instead of his time with Nerlens Noel.

GREEK'ED. Georgios Tsalmpouris will play for the Greek U-18 team in this month's European Championships.

MORE POPPENS. Chelsea Poppens will have a chance to play basketball in Poland despite continuing her ACL rehabilitation.

BUILDING A DYNASTY. The All Iowa Attack has branched out from AAU basketball into volleyball and is headed by a familiar face to Cyclone fans.

GREAT ADDITION. Cyclone Fanatic is adding former Cedar Rapids Gazette writer Rob Gray to its staff.  Gray is a great writer and will be the lead writer on their football and basketball coverage.

SICK OF SOCCER? Too bad.  Grantland breaks down what to do next and what leagues to follow.

AHEAD OF HIS TIME. Remember those Tom Emanski commercials about baseball fundamentals?  If you do, be sure to check out this feature on the creation of the videos and where Emanski disappeared to.

TV PERSPECTIVE. Conference USA has a solid deal with ESPN and Fox Sports to air football, but what happens to the games that don't get picked up?  Here's a hint: they air locally.

Slow news day, and in a continuation of yesterday's thread I will pose the following question for you all to ponder and answer: Of the first four football games (NDSU, K-State, Iowa, and Baylor), which one will provide the best measuring stick for the team's progress?
