Iowa State Football

LANNING THE LEARNER. The key to Iowa State's success this fall might be in Joel Lanning's footwork and the ability to use his hands to call plays.

HOW TO SAVE A LIFE. Iowa State football players on spring break dove in to a canal to save a woman who was trapped in her car. This is a must read.


Iowa State Basketball

NIANG IS A CLASS ACT. So much so that he was selected to the Senior CLASS Award All-American team.

AN EVERLASTING IMPACT. Niang's impact on Ames and Iowa State is so prominent that he completely changed Steve Prohm's recruiting strategy.

Around the Country

DISGUSTING APPROACH TO ADMINISTRATION. Baylor is being sued for failure to investigate and prevent a former player's sexual assault habits involving six women who all came to the university seeking help.

MORE BAD ADMINISTERING. This pales in comparison to above, but Michigan guard Spike Albrecht is intending to transfer under the graduate transfer rule and is having restrictions placed on where he can transfer.

GOOGLE FAILS APRIL FOOLS. When Google changed a feature in Gmail for their annual April Fools Day joke they pissed off a lot of people. For a complete list of Google's jokes this year click here.

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME. For those playing in the College Invitational Tournament it's a labor of love and cost to be able to hoist a trophy at the end season.

NOT INVITED CHAMPIONS. The Colonials of George Washington took home the NIT Championship last night.

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT, OC AND RB. Draft Ezekiel Elliott because he'll call out what you need to do on offense!

NO RESPECT. Iowa Energy player D.J. Stephens tried to destroy another rim in Wells Fargo Arena last night.

THANKS OBAMA O'BANNON. The NCAA is probably going to crack down on gambling on college sports, so DraftKings and FanDuel preemptively stopped running college focused contests.

HOPPED OUT. There's one rule in a dunk contest: make sure you can clear whatever you're jumping over.

THE FUTURE? Tesla debuted their Model 3 sedan last night, and here are all the facts and pictures you could possibly want.
