Iowa State Athletics

TWO ELEPHANTS. Coach Prohm, Naz Long and Matt Thomas discuss the two elephants in the room, of which we will never speak again.

DISRESPECT. Even if it’s artificial, Iowa State is going to use it to its advantage.

BOWIE’S HOME. Darrell Bowie has overcome adversity this season, just to have his journey come full circle.

UNR NO UAB. These guys remember that game, and they think this year’s chemistry is more important than that year’s talent.

LARD UPDATE. Look like we have another Cyclone that may not like rims very much.

NOT LOOKING AHEAD. You won’t find Coach Fennelly’s squad looking ahead to a potential matchup with the streaking UConn Huskies.

SPECIALISTS. Just when you thought spring football couldn’t get anymore exciting, this preview of the specialists drops.

Around the Country

RINGER DISRESPECT. Another outlet is putting the Cyclones on upset watch and leaving Naz Long off of the Perry Ellis All-Stars.

LOUDMOUTH BALL. Charles Barkley challenged the outspoken Lavar Ball to a game of one on one.

MIZZOU. The Missouri Tigers have reportedly signed Cal coach Cuonzo Martin to a 7-year deal. The Cyclones and Tigers will meet next season. Martin has hired Michael Porter as an assistant, meaning Iowa State will likely play against the future #1 pick in the NBA Draft.

DOOK. In case you’re looking for another think piece on how Grayson Allen became the most hated player.

TRIGGERED. If today’s game becomes too stressful to handle, look for these warning signs and be ready to check out.

TOTAL WRNL MOVE. Matt Norlander previews each first round matchup, in haiku.

GAME OF THE DAY. NBC Collegebasketballtalk lists Iowa State vs. Nevada as the game of the day.

PRESIDENTIAL PROBLEMS. Just because Barack Obama is no longer in office, doesn’t mean he stopped filling out brackets. He should probably avoid West Virginia in the near future though.

RUN, FOREST, RUN. A 70-year old ran seven marathons, in seven days, on seven continents. Seems like a lot of work.
