On This Day in History

AUGUST 25, 1985: Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden becomes the youngest 20-game winner in baseball history — a month younger than when Van Meter's own Bob Feller did it in 1939.

Iowa State Football

THE HYPHEN. Defending Big 12 DFoY Kamari Cotton-Moya brings poise and, yes, experience to the secondary.

COWBOY ROUNDTABLE. Our CRFF bros predict this year's tussle in Ames, roundtable style. It's not pretty.

WHAT WENT WELL. CF looks at five positives to come out of fall camp.

"IT HURTS ME WHEN HE HITS OTHER PEOPLE." Jordan Harris is crushing dudes and making a name for himself.

BACKUP POINT GUARD. By now we should all know it's Georges Niang.

Seattle Mariners

WELL, IT STARTED FUN. Oakland answered the Mariners' five-run 3rd inning with a seven-run 5th inning and took game one in Seattle.

Around The Country

INDYCAR TRAGEDY. After being struck unconscious by debris from another car Sunday at Pocono, 37 year old IndyCar driver Justin Wilson has died.

AWESOME LOGO CONCEPT. A Japanese graphic designer has created a logo concept for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and I can't imagine anyone hates it.

THIS IS WHY YOU UBER. A Polish world champion hammer thrower got blasted and paid his cab fare with his gold medal.

SEASON ENDING ACL TEAR. That's the diagnosis for Packers star WR Jordy Nelson. And this is why you hold your fantasy drafts in September.

NOT GUILTY. Good legal news out of Florida State for once, as RB Dalvin Cook was found not guilty of misdemeanor battery (allegedly punching a woman in the face repeatedly outside a bar).

HAVE A DAMN DAY. The Mets beat the Phillies 16-7 last night, fueled by a franchise record eight home runs and 15 extra base hits.

HAPPY MADDEN DAY! Madden 16 was released at midnight, and this is the only review you'll ever need to read.

LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES. Your one-stop shop for brackets, schedules, teams and scores.

STRAIGHT CASH, PETITE HOMEY. Petite Randy Moss is everything.
