CAPTAINS ANNOUNCED. Farniok, Bibbs, and Morrissey are this year's football captains.

RECAPPING DAY ONE. Paul Rhoads talks about how the first day of fall practice went.

QB RACE STILL MURKY. As if you thought Iowa State could go two straight fall camps without a QB race. Rhoads is using the same checklist to determine a starter.

FLIP-FLOPPING ON LAZARD? After declarations that Allen Lazard would be unavailable for the media, he was made available yesterday.

JUCOS IMPRESSING BURNHAM. Despite being on campus for a very short time, two JUCO defensive lineman impressed Wally.

OFFENSE IS IMPROVING. Mark Mangino is happy with the progress of his offensive players.

NO EFFING WAY. There's a chance that Dorial Green-Beckham might be eligible to play for Oklahoma this year.

IT'S BETTER WHEN YOU REMEMBER NONE OF THESE GUYS CAN BE DRUNK. BYU players have a grand old time lip syncing and dancing the night away.

PLAYERS STAND BY STRONG. Charlie Strong has come off as a disciplinarian with all the player dismissals, but current players are in approval.

SCALABRINE'S COMING HOME. He might not be as talented as LeBron (or even an active player), but Brian Scalabrine parodied James' announcement letter.

LOVE TRADE DONE? The Wolves and Cavs have a "handshake agreement" in place for a Wiggins-Love trade.

LEBRON'S DROPPING THE POUNDS. Apparently cutting carbs has this effect.

AD'S BIGGEST RIVAL. Adrian Peterson speaks out not about a player... but about allergies?

EVERYONE HATES THE BRUINS AND YANKEES. The NHL hate map and MLB hate map indicate what we probably already knew.
