BIG BLUE #8. Kentucky won its 8th National Title last night, marking the 3rd time in the last 4 NCAA appearances for Iowa State that the Cyclones have lost to the eventual National Champions. Sadly, Hampton did not win it all in 2001.

LEXINCOUVER. Rioters took over Lexington, and this resulted in a car crashing through a bar patio, this dude dropping the f-bomb on live tv, and many other arrests.

INSERT COCKBLOCK JOKE HERE. Jeff Woody is working on improving his blocking so the Cyclones can run more 2 RB sets.

PINSTRIPE PROFIT. Iowa State turned a $53,523 profit from its trip to the Pinstripe Bowl. That is, however, less than than the $158,850 profit from the previous Insight Bowl trip.

WONDERLIC SEASON. It's that time of year again... when we find out which players scored single digits on the NFL's intelligence test while somehow never being academically ineligible. This year's low is a 4 scored by LSU CB Morris Claiborne.

SADLY PROUD? is apparently citing Bleacher Report articles when promoting the team. On the bright side, they did name AJ Klein and Jake Knott among the Big 12's 10 best players.

NEBRASK TO THE FUTURE. Nebraska's going to shill some "futuristic" jerseys this year, according to Tom Osborne. Since he's 90 though, futuristic probably just means a sleeve stripe.

ONE SHINING MOMENT. No Royce, but Chris Allen gets some run time.
