    ESPN Big 12 blog items

    A couple new entries that I didn't see discussed:

    First is Griffin's "What to watch for in spring practices"

    Spring practice begins: March 24 Spring game: April 18
    What to watch:

    • Paul Rhoads' early assimilation: After his hiring last Dec. 23, Rhoads has concentrated on recruiting and building a coaching staff. Being able to work on the field with his team will likely be a relief for him after such a hectic start.
    • Help in the secondary: The Cyclones lose starters Chris Singleton and Brandon Hunley from a unit that ranked in the bottom 10 nationally in pass efficiency defense and pass defense. Rhoads' specialty is defense, but he'll have his work cut out with his new unit.
    • Finding another starter at wide receiver: Darius Darks is back after an impressive freshman season, but Rhoads needs to find a replacement for 2008 leading receiver R.J. Sumrall. Look for Sedrick Johnson, Marquis Hamilton and Houston Jones all to have their chances at the starting unit during the spring.
    Second is Griffin's "ISU Football Mount Rushmore"

    Iowa State's history isn't as rich as some Big 12 schools, but the Cyclones still have several worthy candidates if they ever constructed a Mount Rushmore for its football history.
    Here are my selections:

    • Earle Bruce -- Taking the Cyclones to a career record above .500 deserves something, doesn't it?
    • Troy Davis -- Two-time rushing leader was second in the Heisman in 1996, narrowly losing to Danny Wuerffel.
    • Jack Trice -- His heroic but fleeting career has served as an inspiration for every Cyclone who followed him.
    • Seneca Wallace -- His knack for making big plays remains memorable seven years after his last game.

    I thought long and hard about Dan McCarney, who holds the school record for victories and had a run of bowl appearances earlier in the decade.
    Anybody I missed?
