Iowa State Football
HEY THERE DE LIRA. Quarterback Dom De Lira has left the Iowa State football program, leaving the Cyclones with three scholarship QBs once Jacob Park arrives.
GOODB-AYENI. Senior defensive lineman, Terry Ayeni has also left the team and decided to forgo his senior season due to injury issues.
Iowa State Basketball
GOOD RIDDER-ANCE. Just hours after Iowa State offered the next Matt Thomas...
He committed to Xavier.
Scratch this. He just committed to Xavier. https://t.co/J6wizGXgoG— Alex Halsted (@AlexHalsted) June 9, 2016
WE'RE NUMBER...16! Iowa State Men's Basketball finished number sixteen in the country in attendance last season, which is actually the ceiling for this program as number fifteen, Arizona, averaged more than Hilton's capacity.
THAT'S AN F-#3 TWISTER. Even though Bill Fennely's squad went just 13-17 (5-13) last season and missed the NCAA tournament for the first time in the last decade, the fans still showed love.
THROWBACK THURSDAY. Yesterday was the first anniversary of the Steve Prohm hire.
Looks like the campers celebrated accordingly.
CyclONEnation! Check out this year's basketball camp version of "the Running Man" championship Thursday tomorrow pic.twitter.com/iMPXWdZD3t— Steve Prohm (@CoachProhm) June 8, 2016
Iowa State Softball
BYE-SON. Iowa State Softball has hired former Co-Head Coach of the North Dakota State Bison, Jamie Trachsel as its next head coach. Pending a background check of course.
Around the Country
SHARA-DOPE-A. Five-time Grand Slam champion, Maria Sharapova, has been suspended from Tennis for two years (backdated to January 2016) due to a positive test for a prohibited substance.
BOO-BY BROWN. Bobby Brown is claiming to have had sex with a ghost. No, really.
NON-EXPANSION BIG 12 THINGS. ESPN says the best pregame tradition in the Big 12 is Kansas State's 'Wabash Canonball". So there's that.
FORGET THE ROSTER, LET'S MAKE THE HOF! Trent Richardson has awfully lofty goals for himself.
SNOOOOOOOOOOOPS. I'm beginning to think that there's some sort of secret competition/rap beef about who can throw the worst first pitch.
IT'S DRAFT DAY! The first two rounds of the MLB Draft will happen today with rounds 3-10 taking place tomorrow. The other 400-ish rounds, or whatever, will take place Saturday. You can follow along on the mothership. If you're curious about the draft, the Ringer has you covered.
CANCER SUCKS. This 7-year old lost his eye, due to retinoblasoma, but replaced it with a prosthetic Cubs eye and got the chance to show the team.
SHOCKING, LEBRON IS GOOD AT THE HOOPY. The Cleveland Cavaliers got their first win of the NBA Finals last night (by 30 because the NBA loves blowouts) and LeBron was doing LeBron things.
LeBron got wayyy up for that dunk! https://t.co/w74eWkTRKH— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) June 9, 2016
