GANNON IS BACK. Tackle Jacob Gannon has returned to the Iowa State football team, and has been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.  The diagnosis, and subsequent help, paved his way for a return to the team.

ALWAYS FIGHTING. DeVondrick Nealy fumbled twice on Saturday, but that didn't dissuade the coaches from using him and his touchdown reception was one of the key plays of the game.

MORE INJURIES. Backup lineman Jacob Dunning is out for the season, and wide receiver P.J. Harris may be as well.

ALWAYS ABOUT LITTLE BROTHER. Opinion columns in college newspapers are always hilarious, and this one from the Daily Iowan is no exception.

GRANTLANDED. Charles Pierce covered the Cy-Hawk game this weekend, and has a fantastic look at Iowa State's victory. For those of you who don't get the Al Shepard reference, here's a history lesson for you.

UNDER THE LIGHTS. Showcasing Ames, Jack Trice, Jacob Gannon's story, and the Cyclone football team against Baylor in prime time spells great things for the program.

NO TALKING! Dana Holgorsen apparently has the exact opposite approach to his kickers as Paul Rhoads does.

DOMINATION. How the Boston College running game destroyed USC, and just kept on doing it.

KVDK IS NOT PROUD. This is not how you execute a fake punt.

NOT PROUD ABOUT THIS EITHER. This is not how you make out in the stands.

SAM PONDERS A HUG. After petting a mullet, Sam Ponder gets roped in to an awkward hug with an NDSU fan.

NUT PUNCH X2. These guys must be Cyclone fans.

RIHANNA SMASH. CBS pulled a few segments from last week's Thursday Night Football, including one with a Rihanna song.  Now they want to use her song again, and the singer is not pleased.

MONEY TALKS. The Adrian Peterson fiasco is ruffling a lot of feathers, and the first sponsor to walk is Radisson Hotel, who just happens to be the primary sponsor for the Vikings.
