The Mid-Morning Dump - 10/8/12: Farmageddon Is Upon Us

A daily collection of links about the Cyclones and sports in general.

CORN > WHEAT. It's Farmageddon week, and Bring On The Cats is bringing the smack. Be sure to head over there and troll them in a friendly manner (emphasis on friendly) about how bacon is king.

THE TOM HERMAN CONNECTION. Iowa State and Ohio State are the only two schools to notch road victories over ranked teams in each of the last 3 seasons.

RANKED AT LAST! It's only #25, but the Cyclones are ranked in the coaches poll for the first time since November of 2005. Also hilarious: ZERO Big Ten teams in the poll (Ohio State is ineligible).

UBBEN'S BUYING INTO LENZANITY. A helmet sticker for Josh Lenz for his four touchdown day.

BOWL PROJECTED. Ubben was also sufficiently impressed with the win over the Horned Frogs that he's projecting us for a bowl.

"THEY CAME INTO OUR HOUSE, BEAT US FAIR AND SQUARE AND PUSHED US AROUND." Gary Patterson isn't making excuses for his team's loss.

REVENGE! The Cyclone women's volleyball team gained a measure of revenge for the football team, beating the Red Raiders in four sets.

AUBURN IS JEALOUS OF US NOW? My, how times have changed.

FULL OF MOMENTUM. K-State is coming off a ridiculous beatdown of Charlie Weis and the Jayhawks.

HOLGO SCHOOLS DIAZ. Everybody was raving about Manny Diaz's defense... then Dana Holgorsen came to town.

BYE WEEK BLUES. Micah Hyde headlined a group of Iowa players that were charged with a bunch of alcohol related offenses. Not too big of a deal, but I'm guessing he won't be suspended while Iowa fans will continue telling us what a lawless program Paul Rhoads runs.

SHUTDOWN FULLBACK. Week 7 features a lot of crying about FSU.
