The Mid-Morning Dump - 4/2/15

Iowa State Basketball

BACK AT HOME. CF has two great articles on what spurred T.J. Otzelberger to return to Ames and pass up head coaching opportunities.

EVERYTHING WORKS OUT. And in the end, how the Abdelmassih-Otzelberger trade worked out for everyone.

CHEICK HIM OUT. Cheick Diallo was the MVP of the McDonald's All-American game last night, looking like a rich man's McKay. He also said he will announce around April 17th.

AND HIS TWO BEST PLAYS FROM LAST NIGHT. Stupid athletic.

HEAD RECRUITER MARCUS FIZER. With Matt Abdelmassih gone, Marcus Fizer is picking up his slack on Diallo's recruitment.

3SUS IS RISEN. A bit early considering Easter isn't til Sunday, but still good news.

Iowa State Football

ADAPTATION. Darius White is finally grasping what it takes to succeed at his new position on the line.

Around The Country

BOOMSHAKALAKA. Shaka Smart to Texas is well on its way to being a thing.

TROLL TIDE? Gregg Marshall is staying at Wichita State for over 3 million a year. So much for being a mid-major.

BOOKER OUT. Frank Booker is leaving Oklahoma.

OUCH GENO. Geno Auriemma drops some truth bombs on the state of men's college basketball. His criticism would probably be received better if he didn't coach a team that routinely blew out teams by 30 though.

MINUS THAT IOWA STATE THING. Michigan State's run is eerily similar to UConn's last year.

RECRUITING NEVER STOPS. How did Calipari get the early in on Karl-Anthony Towns?

FURIOUSER. Furious 7 might be the best/worst in the entire franchise.
