This Moody lawsuit is going to get worse before it gets better. Plus a goalie fight! Kinda.

Iowa State Women's Basketball

TRIAL BY THE PUBLIC. Nikki Moody's lawsuit against Iowa State has taken a long and winding road to end up where we are today, and technically it has yet to be served to the university.

CLOAKED IN SECRECY. Moody's lawyers have no issues talking about this publicly, and stated yesterday that they have one whole signed affidavit from a teammate.

Iowa State Football

NEEDS MORE GROWTH. The offensive line grew this spring, but is still a work in progress according to Matt Campbell.

MORE FOOTBALL TALK. Campbell was on his first Big 12 teleconference yesterday and had more thoughts about spring ball and the Cyclones.

THOSE THAT STOOD OUT. Chris Williams writes about five Cyclones who had a great spring and I agree with his assessment. Many of these guys were all over the field on Saturday afternoon.

JACK & THE MOVIE NIGHT. The Jr. Cyclone Club is hosting their annual movie night at Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday, May 14th with a showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

NCAA News

NCAA DID SOMETHING GOOD. The NCAA finally ruled to allow parents/guardians to accompany recruits on official visits. This was something the old football staff had pushed for and now the new staff will benefit.

FOX DOES SOMETHING... INTERESTING. Fox has agreed to buy up half of the Big Ten's second tier media rights, which includes up to 25 football games per year and assorted basketball games. The expiration of the contract will sync up with expiration of other media rights contracts and likely bring about the next chapter of conference realignment.

Around the Country

LUDAPACKAGING. Ludacris performed at Georgia's spring game and came away with $65K, condoms, and other assorted items.

IS HE DONE? Conor McGregor announced his retirement from fighting yesterday and got yanked from UFC 200, but is he actually done fighting?

GOALIE RAGE. Corey Crawford finally got tired of having his net crashed by the St. Louis Blue and took it out on Robby Fabbri.

NOT SO PERFECT. Deadspin is chronicling the 10 losses of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls and this morning's entry is about Sir Charles and the Phoenix Suns.
