    I did this so that you don't have to...

    So, during a break at work today (that I'm still on, really) I went over to the CBSSportsline.com website to check out college basketball scores, and decided to visit the conference standings section. Next to each team, in addition to overall record, etc., they also list the NET rating. As of...

    "I'm not a cat"

    I thought this site could use a good laugh, what with the frustration with basketball and the bickering that accompanies that. I was literally crying with laughter the first time I watched it.

    Al Davis vs. The NFL

    Did anyone else watch this on Thursday night? The newest offering from 30 for 30 from ESPN? I thought it was a really good and interesting story, and brought back some memories from my early childhood of the NFL in the late '70's and early '80s, and they did a good job of explaining the rivalry...

    Big 12 Buy and Sell from The Athletic (Prohm on the "Hot Seat")

    Good read here. There is a paywall, so for those non-subscribers Prohm is mentioned along with Bruce Weber about whose seat is hotter, and both writers think CSP is in more trouble than Bruce. They both made the argument that due to Bruce's longer tenure, and that he made an Elite Eight three...

    Twisted Tea Knockout

    So, SIAP, but I had seen Twisted Tea, of all things, going viral in the last couple of days, but I had no idea why until I took the time to look it up. I am attaching one of the most satisfying videos I've seen in a while...

    Fantastic article on Breece Hall...

    It is from the Athletic, so you do need a subscription to read it, but once again real high quality sports journalism from my new favorite sports website. https://theathletic.com/2237205/2020/12/04/iowa-state-breece-hall-highlights/?source=dailyemail

    2019 Hyundai Elantra?

    I'm seriously considering one of these as my next car by the end of the month, but before I pull the trigger I thought I would see if anyone on here owns or has driven one of these. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    A great read on Brock Purdy from The Athletic

    You do have to go through a paywall to read it, but I think a subscription to The Athletic is a great investment for any self-respecting sports fan. You might even be able to take advantage of any holiday deals they might have going on at the moment...

    "Good Boys"

    I saw this movie last night, and I have not laughed that hard in a movie theater since seeing "The Hangover" a long time ago. I was literally crying from laughing so hard towards the end of the movie. It's profane and "dumb" humor, but if you like that kind of humor and enjoy movies like...

    Great article from The Athletic on yesterday's win

    There is a paywall involved, but I think you might be able to get a free weekly trial. And even if that's no longer available, I think it's worth the cost. The Athletic is quickly becoming one of my new favorite sports websites...

    To all the Prohm Haters...

    And you know who you are... Coach Fred Hoiberg, for as much of a legend as he deservedly is, will NEVER coach at Iowa State again, and the sooner you dumba$$es can get that through your thick skulls the better. Steve Prohm is our coach. He may not have played basketball at Iowa State or be...

    This one is on me guys...

    We were leading the game right up until I got back home from my evening work shift and turned the game on. As soon as I did our lead started to melt away. If I had not watched the game, we would have won. I'm only half-joking here. I'm enough of a nut to believe in superstition when it comes to...

    War for the Planet of the Apes

    Did anyone else see it when it opened this last weekend? I've been a big fan of the remakes ever since "Rise" back in 2011, and this movie is near perfect. Just an amazing movie in every way, and a perfect end to the series.

    New Assistant Coach Search?

    SIAP, but are there any recent updates on finding a replacement for TJ yet?

    Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook Preview

    I think I've mentioned it before in this forum, but before every college basketball season begins I always make sure to buy the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook. It is IMO the best college BB yearbook out there, head and shoulders ahead of everything else. Every single Division I team...

    Good article from Hines on Prohm's background

    I came across this article today online and thought it was worth sharing. My apologies if it's already been linked. http://amestrib.com/sports/men-s-basketball-dungeon-big-12-steve-prohm-s-rise-volunteer-assistant-iowa-state-head-coach

    "The Sandlot" character rankings.

    So, now that basketball season is over and done with, I find myself surfing the net looking for interesting, funny stories here and there and came across this gem from Grantland. Pretty funny stuff, especially the part about Squints...

    Predictions on final ranking?

    I don't remember if it's the USA Today Coaches Poll or the AP that does one last ranking the Tuesday morning after the championship game, but for whichever one it is, where do you fellow Cyclone fans think we'll be ranked in it? I would guess somewhere between 15th-20th, possibly closer to 20th...

    Marcus Paige

    My apologies if this has already been discussed or answered in a different thread, but did CFH ever offer or even recruit Marcus Paige? I watched the last part of the UNC-Arkansas game last night, and for a very important stretch of that game Paige was the dominant player. I would have loved to...
