PAUL RHOADS PRESS CONFERENCE. Here's video of Paul Rhoads talking about his class, and getting pretty testy about "a school in Northern Indiana" wasting a bunch of money to try to flip Allen Lazard. If you prefer the text version, here you go.

BIG DAY. National Signing Day was a big deal to a lot of members of Iowa State's 2014 class.

COMPLETED STAFF. After announcing Tommy Mangino and Brandon Blaney, the coaching staff is complete.

KRON GONE. During his press conference Rhoads confirmed the departure of defensive linemen Brandon Jensen and Nick Kron.

MANGINO INTERVIEW. Mark Mangino talks to Chris Williams about coaching with his son and Brandon Blaney again, as well as a variety of other topics.

IOWA STATE LOVES CANADA. Now Naz has another Canadian to hang out with when Melvin graduates.

KANE FEATURE. DeAndre Kane gets the SI treatment from Luke Winn, and it's an interesting look at a very "unique personality" who Royce White even weighs in on. Winn's assessment of the Erik Mika incident is a point of debate.

SOCHI IS A MESS. It's not like they had years and years to avoid a situation like this.
