CAN WE GET ONE WITH THE OTHER? The Cyclones have played well on offense and defense for stretches this season, but have yet to do both at the same time.

WHEN WILL THIS TOPIC DIE. Uncle Rand-dawg thinks Darrell Bowie violated unwritten rules of locker room talk with his post-game comment.

HOOPS PREVIEW. The Cyclones take on the Delta Devils tonight.

WILL WORK FOR... DEFENSE? This year’s WBB squad has been putting up large offensive numbers, but is in need of a little more defense.

UPDATES FROM CAMPBELL CLAUSE. The big man himself has updates on Cotton-Moya as well as our highly touted Junior College signings.

Around The Country

HOLD ON, WHAT? Two-time Wimbledon Champion Petra Kvitova was injured by some deranged person with a knife. The attacker, of course, injured her hand?

DOUBLE STANDARD ALERT. Zeke Elliott used a prop in a touchdown celebration, albeit for a good cause, and didn’t get fined... OBJ has some thoughts on that.

BUYER’S REMORSE. Well at least the Vikings and Texans tried.

PICKS. Week 16 is upon us, and that means big things for playoff hopefuls.

PLAYOFF POLAROID. Who’s in? Who’s out? Who’s in a drought? Who has no clout?

2016 FINALLY PRODUCES SOMETHING NICE. Put the onions away and watch this incredible video involving Notre Dame’s Matt Farrell.

IS GRAYSON ALLEN THE NEW MARCUS SMART? Of course a player from Duke drew a foul on a flop where he wasn’t touched.
