The Mid-Morning (Mega)Dump - 2/7/13

So many links, you probably won't have to do any work today.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

EASY WIN. The ladies put up a solid defensive effort and rolled over the Texas Longhorns, 67-48.

JP MAKES DEADSPIN. Rejoice, our athletic director is now as famous as Brett Favre's penis and Lennay Kekua.

MAURICE JONES INELIGIBLE. The NCAA has ruled that Maurice Jones' poor academic standing at USC (It's been spotless in Ames, from what I've heard) has made him ineligible to ever play for the Cyclones.

KJ BLUFORD COMMITS. Never one to dwell on bad news, Fred Hoiberg signed JUCO guard K.J. Bluford, who's taken 244 threes already this season at Northeast CC.

SO IN. Randy Peterson says stop wondering, the Cyclones will be safely into the NCAA tourney on Selection Sunday.

RECRUITING CAMPOS. Even after Jake Campos committed to Missouri, Paul Rhoads didn't give up, and it paid off today.

DOUGLAS SELLS TRIBUNE. Troy Douglas got Nigel Tribune to switch back to Iowa State by ripping on the passing in the Big Ten.

COE'S BIZARRE JOURNEY. Rodney Coe discusses the odd route that he went from a prized Iowa RB commit to an incoming Iowa State defensive lineman. I bet his ACLs would call the journey a relief.


WIMBERLY READY. Aaron Wimberly is excited to get on the field and shed the "JUCO stigma". Being mentioned by Rhoads as an immediate impact player will help his cause.

OL HEAVY CLASS. The Cyclones signed 5 offensive lineman in this class, which excites Paul Rhoads after a lackluster 2012 group. Also of note, Quiton Pompey and Ja'Quarius Daniels are no longer with the team.

NEEDS FILLED. David Ubben assesses the needs filled and remaining holes of Big 12 teams, and Iowa State is included in part one.

JASON KING STILL LOVES US. ESPN's Jason King has some nice things to say about Iowa State and predicts us to beat K-State in Manhattan on Saturday.

GADSON AGAIN. Kyven Gadson was awarded Big 12 wrestler of the week for the third time this season for two wins over top 10 opponents.

TEAM TAHJ. Somebody at the Clemson football offices really loves Twilight.

ESS EEE SEE SPEED RUNS DEEP. Alex Collins wanted to go to Arkansas, but his mom wants him to stay home in Florida, so she ran off with his LOI.

WINNERS AND LOSERS. Andy Hutchins runs over who's happy and who's not on signing day. Texas and Oklahoma had solidly disappointing days.

A PERFECT STORM. Steven Godfrey looks at all the things that had to happen for Ole Miss to land #1 recruit Robert Nkemdiche.

KLOSTERMAN CHATS WITH ORGERON. The nation's finest minds (sort of) talk about what signing day means for America.

NEVER TOO EARLY TO START. How early is too early to start recruiting?

DOWN GOES KANSAS! TCU pulled off the shocker of the season so far, and Frogs O' War is still in a state of disbelief.

NOT A GOOD LOOK? KSU recruit Jamone Boyd was arrested for armed robbery two days before signing day.

JAY CUTLER CHANNELS ROY WILLIAMS. The Bears QB texted a proposal and sent a ring in the the mail, in the most Jay Cutler way to ever propose.
