The Mid-Morning Dump - 11/12/12

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

ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER PICK. Leonard Johnson just keeps impressing as his NFL playing time increases. He now has 3 INTs in 3 weeks and the latest was returned for a TD, something he never did at Iowa State or in high school.

MOM KEEPS HIM HUMBLE. Leonard Johnson's mom gives him his drive, and also gives him a hard time: "Listen, for him to get a touchdown is like a miracle, because Leonard is super slow."

VAN DER GUY. Kirby Van Der Kamp is one of 10 semi finalists for the Ray Guy award.

FIRST GAME DOWN, FIRST DOUBLE-DOUBLE. Chelsea Poppens did her usual thing and the Cyclone ladies defeated Western Illinois in their season opener.

SO MUCH FOR THAT SEC THING. The notion that Texas A&M would get stomped in the SEC because it's a huge jump from the paltry Big 12 is a notion that should be dead for good after they defeated Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

KSU MAKES HISTORY. #1 in the BCS for the first time ever.

BUT GARY PATTERSON IS BETTER? Really enjoy how this writer completely forgot how bad Kansas State was before Bill Snyder injected his wizardry in the program.

PATTERSON IS ARKANSAS' #1. Influenced by the article, Arkansas has made Gary Patterson their #1 priority to replace John L. Smith.

BOWL PROJECTIONS: CBS Sports, Scout, and David Ubben have us headed to the Meineke Car Care Bowl, while Jason Kirk has us going to NYC still.

MORE ABUSE? Wide receiver Marquess Wilson alleges he was physically, verbally, and emotionally abused by Mike Leach's staff.

MEANWHILE AT TTU... Tommy Tuberville offers an explanation for why he slapped his assistant. There must be something that makes you abusive in that Lubbock water.

AGGIE SECRET? Prevail and Ride found out A&M's secret to defeating Alabama (Likely NSFW, depending on your workplace's stance on MSPaint dicks).

NASCAR FIGHT! I don't suggest watching NASCAR often, but when I do, it's because an opposing pit crew attacks a driver.
