MORE SMARTIES. 15 Cyclones were named to the Big 12 All Academic team, including A.J. Klein.

IOWA STATE, TRANSFORMED. Well guys, Ubben's predicting we beat KU and go to a bowl tomorrow, and admitting he (and many others) were wrong about us again this year.

RONDE LIKES LJ. Ronde Barber says Leonard Johnson is a "complete cornerback". High praise from a future Hall of Famer.

WHAT A WACKY SERIES. The series between Kansas and Iowa State has been marked by lots of odd plays.

TJ ON RECRUITS. Chris Williams sat down with T.J. Otzelberger to discuss ISU's 2013 class.

CHELSEA POPPENS ON NAISMITH WATCH LIST. The Cyclone senior is one of eight Big 12 players on the list.

CAMPBELL PREVIEW. previews the game against the Campbell Fighting Camels, one of the most bizarre/awesome names in the NCAA. Of note is the return of Chris Babb from suspension. Also, ISU is currently outrebounding its opponents by a +24.5 margin.

HEY, IT'S KU'S SUPER BOWL TOO! Charlie Weis is handing out free admission to all students on KU's senior day against Iowa State.

PAINFUL FLASHBACKS. Barking Carnival checks out the game film from ISU-UT and how OC Bryan Harsin spiced up the run game.

TWIS. This Week In Schadenfreude is heavy on Alabama sadness (because everyone enjoys that), but the hidden nugget of WTF is the idea by WVU fans to bench Geno Smith.

BUT I'M THE GOVERNOR PAWWWWWWLLLL. Alabama's governor is questioning the Crimson Tide's playcalling too. Seriously.

PROTECTING A SCRAMBLER. Oregon's Carson York weighs in on protecting a scrambling QB such as A&M's Juan Futbol.

MORE BAD LUCK FOR TCU? Amric Fields went down with a knee injury, and it looks like this may be the Horned Frogs' second season ending injury of the season.

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE? Steven Godfrey examines what the post-Obama riots have done to affect the perception of Ole Miss.

SO AWESOME. Watching a day of games inside the RedZone studio sounds incredible.

WHAT IN THE HELL? Punting back and forth is legal in Canadian football. Who knew? Not this Canadian.
