Based off of yesterday’s meeting of Big 12 athletic directors, I thought it was appropriate to throw together a links compilation today. Here’s some reading material for your Tuesday morning. 

— To sum yesterday up, the Big 12 still wants to explore alliances with other conferences, namely the ACC, before doing anything brash. Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News has more. 

— Jeremy Fowler writes that the Big 12 discussed a lot of "what ifs" yesterday, specifically which schools the Big Ten and the SEC might target should those leagues decide to expand once again. — CBSSports.com

— A strong column by Dennis Dodd, who writes that an alliance between the Big 12 and the ACC makes a lot of sense. — CBSSports.com 

— Predictably, the Big 12’s basketball coaches toed the company line in yesterday’s teleconference when it comes to expansion. — The Oklahoman 

— If you missed it yesterday, here’s my take on the current state of the Big 12. — Cyclone Fanatic 

On Iowa State/Big 12 Basketball…

Might as well throw some Cyclone hoops links in this bad boy right?

— Fred Hoiberg hit the recruiting trail last Saturday night. — Cyclone Fanatic 

— Video coverage from yesterday’s press conference featuring Hoiberg, Will Clyburn, Tyrus McGee and Korie Lucious. — Cyclone Fanatic 

— More details on this players-only meeting that Korie Lucious through on Friday night…— Cyclone Fanatic 

— The Cyclones could be going with a smaller lineup more often going forward writes Travis Hines.— Ames Tribune

— The 14-4 Iowa State women’s basketball team shouldn’t have to worry about being on the bubble for this year’s NCAA Tournament writes Cody Westerland. — Ames Tribune

administrator

Chris was hired as Cyclone Fanatic’s publisher in the fall of 2009. He is Iowa State football's postgame show host on the Cyclone Radio Network and can be heard daily from 4-7 on Des Moines' top-rated sports station, 1460 KXnO. Williams, a 2007 graduate of Iowa State’s Greenlee School of Journalism, is the former publisher of the old CycloneNation.com (Scout.com). He has also written for the Des Moines Register, the Ames Tribune, CycloneReport.com and is the former sports director at KMA Radio. When Williams isn’t working, you can usually find him doing something outdoors with his wife Ashley, daughter Camryn, and Golden Retriever Dierks. He enjoys golfing, boating, country music, the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Braves and is passionate about any and all motor sports so finding Williams at a local dirt track is very common.
