Iowa State Football

JOEL LANNING THROWIN' HUNNIDS'. Uncle Randy breaks down the 100 minutes (give or take) that Lanning has been the quarterback for.

WULFF ON VACATION. Apparently our volunteer coach is in London this week, probably trying to bring back new football ideas to the coaching staff.

NATIONAL TEAM OF THE WEEK. Yep, you read that correctly. The Football Writers named Iowa State their National Team of the Week.

ONE WEEK, TWO AWARDS. You read that correctly. Jordan Harris was also named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week for being everywhere against Texas.

CONFIDENCE IS KEY. Much like trying to pick up a girl at the bar, confidence can make a big difference when it comes to playing winning football.

Iowa State Men's Basketball

LUCKY NUMBER 7! Iowa State will enter the season as a top-10 team, with a #7 ranking from the AP.

MORE RANKINGS. ESPN ranked the top 100 players in the country, and 3 Cyclones made the top 60!

Iowa State Women's Basketball

FEMALE LUCCA STAIGER? When asked to describe her game, new Cyclone commit from Germany Aliyah Konate, said: "I like to shoot."

Around The Country

BURN IT ALL DOWN. After the ACC suspended the officials from the Duke-Miami game for blowing several calls, they went ahead and named the Miami player who scored the last TD their Player of the Week!

PEOPLE DON'T LIKE READING I GUESS. Great read on why Grantland was shut down, and what the future of sports media looks like.

HE RAN FROM OKC TO HOUSTON. Check out this epic travel from the NBA last night, and of course it wasn't called.

AT LEAST YOU TRIED. The Texans punter tried to make a tackle on Sunday...

CAUGHT IN A PICKLE. No, this isn't about baseball. Yes, a basketball game was delayed due to a pickle being on the court. No, I'm not sure if anyone ended up eating it.

ONCE YOU GO BLACK YOU CAN GO BACK. The Washington Nationals pulled a complete 180 and hired Dusty Baker after basically offering the job to Bud Black.

TITANS COACH FIRED. After firing Ken Whisenhunt, it looks like the Titans will be on the "hunt" for a new coach next year.

OH KRISTOP IT. Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis posterized LaMarcus Aldridge last night. Say that 5 times fast.

SHOELESS JOE DURANT? Kevin Durant apparently doesn't need shoes to get buckets.

KAEPERNICK IS KAEPERDONE. How can you tell if your team's starting QB sucks? If he gets benched for Blaine Gabbert, that's how.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS HILARITY. Check out this legal brief footnote the Washington Redskins submitted, most of which is unprintable.
