Matt Campbell: National Championship Head Coach

TOLEDO IS THE BIGGEST WINNER. The transitive property never, ever lies and we now know that Toledo won the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12, and Big 12 this year and should be handed the National Championship right this second.

CATALINA'S PARADISE. Graduate transfer offensive tackle Tyler Catalina is coming to Ames after finishing his degree at Rhode Island.

RECAPPING THE BIG FIVE. National Championship Head Coach Matt Campbell signed five recruits in this year's early signing period and the Ames Tribune has a breakdown of each and all look to be immediate contributors.

LEARNING THE RIGHT WAY. Offensive lineman Oge Udeogu learned to play football by playing the NCAA Football series on the Xbox 360. Further proof that this tactic will eventually get recognized for wannabe coaches throughout the country.

NIANG HAS THE VISION. Georges Niang watched UNI's upset of North Carolina in person back in November, and he knows what to expect on Saturday.

NO ONE MAN SHOULD HAVE ALL THAT POWER. Iowa State checks in at #5 in Luke Winn's latest Power Rankings in Sports Illustrated, and Winn goes in to detail about what Deonte Burton could add, or might not add, to the lineup.

BOWL SCHEDULE.simple, glossy schedule for all the bowls this season, which starts tomorrow with four games.

STAGG BOWL. Aka the DIII National Championship that will be played between Mount Union (Matt Campbell's alma mater) and St. Thomas tonight.

ROLL DAMN TITLE. Alabama ignores the transitive property and is ESPN's pick to win the national championship, plus other bowl predictions.

2015 LOOK BACK. The mothership put together a video of 2015 to illustrate how great of a year it was for sports.

MESS IN MONTANA. Everyone's favorite former offensive coordinator is now the new offensive coordinator at Montana State.

aTm's QBS ARE A DISASTER. Texas A&M has said goodbye to two quarterbacks this week and is left with an unproven 3rd stringer as their starter.

MORE S-E-C TOMFOOLERY. LSU might have changed John Chavis' contract after he signed it.

FOOTBALL ALL AMERICANS. In a shocking move, Iowa State does not represent on the 2015 All-American list.

BYU ISN'T IN GREAT SHAPE EITHER. Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said, "lolololol, no thanks" to BYU and so now they turn to Oregon State's defensive coordinator as their last hope to replace Bronco Mendenhall.

KOBE FLASHBACK. Kobe looks like he's in his 20s with this dunk from last night.

LEBRON IS A FREIGHT TRAIN. LeBron bowled over golfer Jason Day's wife last night in Oklahoma City. It sounds like she's ok, though.

BASKETBALL IS DUMB, EUROPE IS DUMB. Aggregate scoring works for soccer, but it doesn't for basketball and leads to two teams missing free throws intentionally down the stretch.
