I could easily retire off some fired coaches’ salaries

Iowa State Football

DUAL THREAT. As Iowa State continues to trot out two quarterbacks, both Lanning and Park are out to prove that it’s a two headed monster and not two headed monstrosity.

OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN. ESPN did a Q&A with Iowa State’s captain, Allen Lazard.

NEW POSITION, SAME JT. Jhaustin Thomas is thriving in a new role and his versatility has led to an improved Cyclones defense.

BAILEY’S EMERGENCE. Perhaps another reason for the improvement of the Cyclones’ defense is the emergence of true freshman JaQuan Bailey.

Iowa State Basketball

WE’RE GOING (going), BACK BACK TO MAUI (maui). Iowa State will play in the 2018 Maui Invitational for the first time since 1990.

JUCO ‘CROOTIN. We’re starting to see a glimpse into coach Prohm’s vision of filling out the 2017 class as JUCO forward Eden Ewing will take an official visit to ISU this weekend before choosing between ISU, Purdue, LSU and Fresno State.

ANOTHER CONFERENCE PREVIEW. Spoiler: KU comes out on top, but you won’t believe where they have ISU. (am I doing this tease thing right?)

TOP POINT GUARDS. It’s usually a good thing when your point guard is the feature image for the article, right?

IOWA STATE CAN GET IT. When asked to describe Iowa State in one word, Monte Morris succinctly says, “buckets.”

RIP BDJ. The Pelicans honored the former Cyclone with their warmups last night.

Around the Country

CUBS FLIP THE SCRIPT. The Chicago Cubs evened the 2016 World Series last night, and Kyle Schwarber is ridiculous.

ANTHONY DAVIS IS GOOD. The Nuggets unfortunately found this out the hard way.

THE REST OF THE NBA IS GOOD TOO. Find out all the important things from last night’s NBA contests, and be sure not to miss this angry 76ers fan.

HIRING AND FIRING. Turns out both hiring a college football coach and firing a college football coach, can be expensive. Not all coaches’ termination clauses are created equal.

THIS IS IMPORTANT. What is Rob Gronkowski going to do when he scores his 69th touchdown?

COLLEGE BASKETBALL’S BEST OFF GUARDS. Who is on track to stand out this year?

MEMPHIS FOOTBALL. Perhaps it’s best that the Big 12 eliminated Memphis from expansion talk earlier, especially if their players are going to shoot at each other.
