Cyclone Roundup: 8-5 Edition

By Chris Williams, PublisherFollow Chris on Twitter @ChrisMWilliams

Thursday was nuts. Football media day went down. That’s always a zoo.

On top of that, Iowa State’s men’s basketball schedule was released.

While your calendar might not indicate it, one thing is for sure. Summer is over folks.

DEPTH ADDED AT DT: This comes courtesy of the @CycloneFB Twitter page earlier today.

"Freshman Oni Omoile has switched positions. He is now a defensive tackle."

Interesting. I’ll be sure to ask Paul Rhoads about this later today after practice.

Another commitment?: That’s what these Tampa media outlets are reporting anyway.
