Iowa State Football
CAMPS ARE BACK, BACK AGAIN. The NCAA Board of Directors overturned a lower committee's ban on satellite camps, which will allow Iowa State to barnstorm the Midwest, and yes, Texas with Jim Harbaugh.
ALL OF THE LIGHTS. A proverbial shit show awaits in Iowa City this year as the Cyclones and Hawkeyes will kick off their annual matchup under the lights in Kinnick Stadium.
THIS SHOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE. The Cyclones have a 40 year drought since their last first round pick in the NFL Draft. Help us Mike Warren, you're our only hope.
HOPE FOR THE REST. Numerous Cyclones worked out at Pro Day this year and will hope to hear their names called this weekend.
Iowa State Track & Field
CAPTURING THE WHITE FLAG. Distance runner Bethanie Brown won the 5,000m event at the Drake Relays.
TOP OF THE CHARTS. Cal quarteback Jared Goff went first overall to the Los Angeles Rams and immediately started schilling for everybody.
WENTZ GOES SECOND. North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz went second overall to the Philadelphia Eagles and gets graded the same as LA's pick.

ROUND TWO MOCK. A mock draft of tonight's second round.
MANNING'S MUSINGS. Peyton Manning and Bill Snyder have something in common: handwritten letters.
TUNSILITIS. Laremy Tunsil slid down draft boards after a video of him smoking weed from a gas mask bong surfaced right before the first round started.
HE'S NOT DONE. Tunsil then later admitted to taking money from coaches at Ole Miss and then was quickly ushered off the stage.
PREMEDITATED. According to Deadspin, someone has been trying to shop the bong video for weeks, but this was the best pat of the article:
STILL MADE MILLIONS THO. Tunsil may have slid, but he's still a millionaire and playing for a team that will be able to use his skills.
