KLENAKIS IS VOCAL. New Iowa State OL line coach Chris Klenakis almost makes Paul Rhoads seem shy.

RHOADS IS MAKING IT RAIN. Football revenue has gone from $19.9 million when Paul Rhoads took over to almost $30 million in 2012.

BRACKENS FINDS NEW HOME. Jared Brackens is being moved from safety to linebacker to fill the gap left by Knott and Klein's departures, and he's looking to make a big splash.

FRED TALKS TYRUS. Coach Hoiberg talks about Tyrus McGee's participation in the State Farm 3 point shooting challenge.

THE TWILIGHT OF BLALOCK'S CAREER. Will Blalock is either going overseas or retiring from basketball after this year.

SAINA DISAPPOINTED IN SECOND. Expectations are sky high for Betsy Saina, who finished second in the 5,000 meters.

PASSED UP BY WICHITA. Only three schools have been away from the Final Four longer than Wichita State, and it includes Iowa State. Here's everything you need to know about the "cinderella" of the Final Four.

KEVIN WARE INJURY. The broken leg itself is too gross for me to link in good conscience, but if you haven't seen it, just watch reactions from other players and you'll get an idea of how bad it was. Ware was comforted in his hospital bed with a regional trophy.

ELIJAH'S BACK! After pissing off Hilton Coliseum, Elijah Johnson is back to being hated, delivering a low blow cheapshot to Michigan's Mitch McGary. Johnson was somehow not ejected, but karma did rear its ugly head when Elijah faltered down the stretch for KU.

KIM MULKEY LOSES HER SHIT. The Baylor women went down to Louisville yesterday, and after a controversial call, Kim Mulkey goes insane and tries to strip for everyone.

UCLA GETS ALFORD. Days after signing an extension with New Mexico, Steve Alford is taking his history of postseason success to UCLA to succeed Ben Howland. Bruins Nation has all the reactions on the hire.

FGCU SADNESS. The dream run is over for the Eagles, but what's even crazier is that they're having issues with fundraising because THEIR OLDEST ALUM IS 37 YEARS OLD. To make up for the sadness, here's the 2013 FGCU NCAA tournament dunk reel.

ANDRE DRUMMOND STILL CAN'T SHOOT FREE THROWS. Remember when the former UConn player made Royce White look good at free throw shooting? He's still at it.

GOOGLE NOSE IS A REAL THING! Google's new invention is pretty awesome. I'm signing up to be a beta tester.
