Iowa State Football

YOUNG GUY'S GOT WHEELS. Mike Warren is shattering ISU's freshman rushing records, and is still leading the frosh running back in the nation.

NEXT UP: THE IMPOSSIBLE. Iowa State's defense will be tasked with slowing down Baylor's incredible offense this Saturday.

71-7. That was the score of the ISU-Baylor game last time both teams met in Waco, and Sam Richardson considers that outing a total embarrassment.

REDSHIRTING PAID OFF. Linebacker Jordan Harris wasn't fond of the decision to redshirt at first, but is thankful he did now.

RAIN RAIN, GO AWAY. The weather for Saturday isn't looking good according to the latest forecasts.

Iowa State Basketball

MAX THE SEASON OUT. That's Steve Prohm's goal according to his speech at Big 12 basketball media days yesterday.

FRAN'S A FAN. In this short interview with CF's Rob Gray, ESPN announcer/analyst and former head coach, Fran Fraschilla, says he's a big believer that Coach Prohm will succeed at Iowa State.

BETTER ON THE BOARDS. To get better at rebounding, Georges Niang scribbled a message in his apartment using chapstick.

3SUS THE FLOOR GENERAL? Naz Long will probably get some minutes at point guard this season.

ATTACKING AND SCORING. We'll be seeing Monte Morris do a lot of those under Coach Prohm.

TAKE DOWN THE JAYHAWKS. Everyone is set on bringing Kansas' 11 year run to a halt.

HOW HARD IS IT? To not get behind the wheel? Graduate assistant Tim Mannix was jailed for contempt of court after being hit with an OWI back in May.

HOLLA, SWALLA. Hank Swalla, the youngest of the three Swalla brothers, is ready to get his career started at ISU.

Around The Country

THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE. The Cubs returned to being the Cubs last night with a handful of mistakes in the field, and now find themselves down big to the Mets in the NLCS.

POOR FRED. He has to deal with Jimmy Butler, who removed the rearview mirror in his car so he "can't look back."

SMALL GRUDGE. The Minnesota Timberwolves played a game in the Kohl Center, and Wisconsin fans reminded former Duke player Tyus Jones that he isn't loved there.

NOT HIS BEST. Blake Griffin doesn't usually miss dunks like this.

THIS DUNK IS RATED PG-13. In his first season back from a horrible leg injury, Paul George is already throwing it down with authority in the preseason.

BASICALLY TWINS. Jose Bautista snapped a pregame pic with his biggest fan.

FIRST RULE OF DONUT CLUB. The Minnesota Vikings have a sacred Donut Club that operates like Fight Club.

SIMPSONS SERIES. Fox made a World Series promo featuring The Simpsons.
