    Votes, still winning 43%-29%. The name we came up with is "The Iowa State Cyclones Starting Varsity Defense."

    How about Rhoad's Rogues? or Special K (Knott & Klein). Just throwing them out there.

    Cares



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    KSU is second? They just let KU put up 400 yards on them.

    Maybe we could name them "The Pride of Iowa State".... I cringe every time the PA announcer refers to the band as the pride of Iowa State. If the band is the thing we are most proud of... well then we suck at football and should just close up shop on the entire program.

    Wally's Wankers?

    It's got the alliteration, but I think it might send the wrong message.
