Today’s Christmas Eve and that means tomorrow is the day you all get to open up your gifts and have a merry ol’ time.

Being in the giving mood, WRNL decided to get some gifts for a few of the people involved with Iowa State athletics year-round. That means members of the University, athletic squads, and media who cover the ISU beat.

We hope these notable members of Cyclone Nation enjoy their gifts, because we took all the tags off and they definitely can’t be returned.

Merry Christmas!
