Monte Morris shoots better three pointers with his off hand than any of us can dream.

Iowa State Basketball

BRACKETOLOGY. Monday is clearly bracketology dump day for all of the major scrubs. You could find Iowa State as a 6 seed in New York City, a 5 seed in Denver like Joey Brackets and Jerry 'I hate Wichita State' Palm. Perhaps a 5 seed in OKC is more your style as the mothership predicts. Sports Illustrated says 4 seed, but we know you're all waiting for NarbTom 4.0, which drops today.

MORRIS GETS A BREATHER. Rob Gray writes that Iowa State's Iron Man is getting a much needed couple of days off, but you can't keep him off of the court.

SURPRISE, MORRIS IS A LEFTY. Don't believe me? Just watch.

A NICER COUSY THAN YOU HAVE. Can't get enough Monte? He's also a Cousy Award finalist. We know that Cyclone fans love online voting, and guess what? You can help him win!

Iowa State Football

1 SHOT AINT ENOUGH JACK, BETTER MAKE IT 3. Iowa State opens its spring football practices today and Jared Stansbury has three questions that he wants answered.

ICYMI. In case you missed it and are in need of a daily sad, Levi Peters is calling it a career. Tommy Birch has you covered.

News From Around the Country

DRUNK IN YOUR EAR HOLES ON A TUESDAY. Ted Flint and his merry brethren are at it again with a new 'We're Not That Drunk' podcast.

ALL TIME BIG 12 TOURNAMENT TEAM. Iowa State gets some mention from the Kansas City Star's All Time Big 12 Tournament Team.

WISKY MAKES IT OFFICIAL. Greg Gard > Bo Ryan? Maybe this year at least, and it was good enough to earn Gard a job that he probably would have gotten anyway.

WISKY GETS EJECTED. Here's to hoping John Walters and Eric Heft have better luck than the Wisconsin Green Bay announcer that got ejected from the Horizon League Semifinal game.

MANNING EJECTS HIMSELF. Peyton Manning calls it quits on the same day as Levi Peters. One could argue that Levi was a more accurate tackler than Manning was a passer in their respective final seasons.

EAGLES CLEAN HOUSE? The Philadelphia Eagles are apparently trying to rid themselves of the Chip Kelly stink by trading everyone, including Demarco Murray who played just one year of his 5-year $40 million contract in Philly.

AUTO BIDS ARE BEING CLAIMED. 3 more automatic bids to the 2016 NCAA Tournament were claimed Monday night, including Iona potentially benching Monmouth's bench for the rest of the season, UNC Wilmington doing UNC type things, and Iowa State non-conference foe, Chattanooga claiming their seat at the table as well.

THE DREW FAMILY KNOWS QUARTERBACKS. Remember when Scott Drew and his Baylor Bears heaved a full court pass to get Rico Gathers his first 3-pointer of the season at the halftime buzzer against Kansas in Waco? Well apparently, his brother Bryce Drew took note and used this play to force overtime in last night's Horizon League Semifinal.
