ANOTHER GAME, ANOTHER BLOWOUT. The Cyclones are rolling through their non-conference schedule so far, demolishing North Carolina A&T 86-57, which is actually closer than the game really was.

ESPN ALL-ACCESS. If you weren't able to check out ESPNU's All-Access look at Iowa State football, it's on again tomorrow, so set your DVRs. Jacques Washington is probably the highlight with his "Watch for me on 30 for 30: Broke 2, the athletes who didn't learn from the first one." comment.

BIG COMMITMENT. 6 foot 5, 270 pound left tackle Shawn Curtis has committed to the Cyclones over a host of other BCS conference teams.

ALL IN. Brent Blum writes that this team may be his favorite to date, because of all the obstacles they overcame to get bowl eligible.

TAVON AUSTIN CAUSES NAUSEA. The Cyclone coaches are concentrating on stopping WVU's Tavon Austin.

SHORT WEEK NON BLUES. West Virginia is happy to have a short week of preparation due to Black Friday.

THE BIG, DUMB, GREEDY, TEN. A Big Ten fan voices his displeasure with Jim Delany's moves.

NERDS! Are killing sports, writes Bill Connelly in this week's numerical.

OH, WE'RE DOING THIS ALREADY. USC QB Max Wittek will be making his first start against Notre Dame, and is starting with a 1:1 games started to win guarantee ratio.

GRINNELL AT IT AGAIN. Jack Taylor scored 138 points last night on 108 shots in a 179-104 win.

ULTIMATUM TIME! The NCAA is threatening former Miami players with implied guilt unless they talk. The NCAA: where you're guilty until proven not mute.

JON GRUDEN IS COMING BACK, Y'ALL. Maybe. Maybe Not. EDSBS has his exclusive thoughts on the matter though.
