    The only thing that's been able to stop running back Beau Blankenship is a tractor.

    A few weeks before his freshman year at North High School in Norman, Okla., Blankenship parked a tractor on a hill. Once Blankenship, who verbally committed to Iowa State Friday, got off the tractor, it started rolling toward a pond.

    Awesome. I have a really good feeling about this kid. Seems like he is genuinely dedicated and a hard worker. Might already have the mental tools to play at the next level.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see a kid like this playing football on Sundays.


    Kinnick smells like syrup.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I am pumped about this Beau guy. I think he will be phenomenal with his attitude and hyped skill set. I love the fact he hits the field hard.

    you know the kids good if he's tackling tractors on the farm. Homan and him should compare notes.

    Re: interesting story on beau blankenship
