The Mid-Morning Dump - 3/7/14

SENIOR DAY. Since doesn't have anything up yet regarding our departing seniors I thought I'd take the time to link to our tributes.  First there's CanAzn's great write up on what Melvin Ejim has meant to the program.  There's my follow up with Ejim by the numbers, and finally Cylentbutdeadly's Oklahoma State preview goes more in-depth on what DeAndre Kane has meant to this year's team.

THAT OTHER SENIOR. No, not #ELLERMANTIME, but rather Bubu Palo and how this might not be his true Senior Day if he gets his sixth year of eligibility at another school.

CHRISTOFFERSON FIRST TEAM. Hallie Christofferson leads the Cyclone women with an All Big XII First Team selection.

WRESTLING. We previewed the Big XII Championships earlier this week, but here's's preview of the event.

BRACKETOLOGY CHANGES. The mothership has updated their Bracketology after last night's games and two interesting changes have happened.  While Iowa State remains a four seed out West they now could have a potential Round of 32 date with the newly minted five seed Michigan State.  Second, Iowa is now projecting at an eight seed and facing Baylor in the Round of 64.  No word on if Zach McCabe will be hip tossing Cory Jefferson.

CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT CHEAT SHEET. With conference tournaments beginning in earnest this weekend the mothership has put together this handy guide on what to expect.

FINALLY SOME RECOGNITION. Troy Davis, the only running back to run for over 2,000 yards in multiple seasons, is finally nominated for the College Football Hall of Fame... six years after first becoming eligible.

THROWBACK TO THE RUN. In yesterday's Throwback Thursday on Pick Six Previews we get to see Seneca Wallace's run from the 2002 game against Texas Tech.

FERCH DEPARTS. Walk-on running back Dalton Ferch has left the team.  We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

HOMER PREDICTIONS. Jason Kirk has a hilarious break down of everyone's optimism for their football team when spring rolls around.

YOUR ARGUMENT, IT HOLDS NO WATER. Roll Bama Roll tries to justify the 10 second run off rule that was struck down by the NCAA this week.  All I could think about while reading the article was: A. Bad sampling, and B. There would be no complaints if Kevin Sumlin was their coach.

STILL #SOCHIPROBLEMS. The Paralympics have moved in to Sochi and they're having the same problems their counterparts did.

CHILL OUT BRO. Hawaii coach gets technical, gets confronted by UC-Santa Barbara bro.

REMAKING HARVARD. Mothership long form about how Tommy Amaker has remade the Harvard basketball program.
