Iowa State Head Coach Paul Rhoads met with the media ahead of the Cyclones Thursday night tilt with the Texas Longhorns. The following are excerpts and quotes obtained via Cyclone Report.
Can you talk about the Big 12 being wild and unpredictable this year?
Rhoads: I think a lot of people accurately said this was going to be wide-open league as the season approached. I think it’s holding true. There’s a lot of talent in this league. There’s a lot of great coaching in this league. Certainly a high rate of competitive people in the league. So you’re going to have upsets, you’re going to have that play out and every now and then you’re going to have lopsided games as well. This is a league that’s as good as it gets in the country that’s showing a little bit of its youth and inexperience with a number of the programs this particular season.
Can you analyze the progression of some of the younger guys on the offensive line?
Rhoads: Oni’s [Omoile] really come on and given ...

Iowa State University played Texas Thursday night in a tight game that came down to a controversial goal line stand. ISU was holding onto a 30-24 lead with just over a minute to play, when Texas running back Johnathan Gray attempted to punch it in on 1st and Goal. An ISU defender ripped the ball from Gray’s hands, and took a few steps towards a game-clinching defensive touchdown...
It’s been a very rough year for the Texas Longhorns to this point, especially for head coach Mack Brown. But apparently it is affecting other UT personnel as well. Rod Babers, a former Longhorn player and sideline reporter for the Longhorn IMG Radio Network, announced yesterday on Twitter that he is resigning from his position.

Mike Davis is an incredible talent; a definite bright spot on a Texas team that is lacking. He will be drafted in one of the higher rounds this year, but until then and until someone else does something dirty he will be one of the most despised players in college football.
Why? Because of this:

Hallie Christofferson goes about her work with the Iowa State women's basketball team quietly, at least in coach Bill Fennelly's view.
He doesn't expect pep talks and long speeches and a lot of backslapping from the 6-foot-3 senior, only results. And in that area, her play speaks volumes.
''She's very understated,'' Fennelly said Wednesday at the...
The Texas Longhorns (2-2) and Iowa State Cyclones (1-2) will meet Thursday night in a match-up of two Big-12 schools.
Things have not been good for the Longhorns this season and head coach Mack Brown may ultimately pay with his job for his inability to bring in a capable quarterback. Last week the Longhorns weathered the storm beating Kansas State after convincing losses to...

Hook em T…Kevin Durant’s love for his days in Austin comes to life in the KD VI Texas. An upcoming “Texas” colorway of the Nike KD 6 pays tribute to the player’s brief yet significant college career, featuring the Long Horns’ signature burnt orange coloring with green glow accents for a pop of color. A matching backpack and Elite socks are set to release alongside the...
Though news was originally broken by Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com over two weeks ago, today it became official: Texas Mens Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds, one of the most influential and divisive figures in major college athletics, announced his retirement today. Dodds will transition out of his role no later than August 31, 2014 and remain with Texas in an advisory capacity until...
The Texas Longhorns were trying to score a touchdown to tie the game against Iowa State when runningback Jonathan Gray put the ball on the turf twice. On the first fumble it appeared that the ball came out before Gray was down and Iowa State recovered the fumble, but the call on the field stood. On his next carry, Gray clearly fumbled the ball but was able to recover it before...
Following Iowa State's loss to Texas, Paul Rhoads went off on the Big 12 officials for their blown fumble call during his post-game press conference.
The offensive skill core of Sam Richardson, Aaron Wimberly, Quenton Bundrage and E.J. Bibbs will keep the Cyclones competitive in every Big 12 game
Texas Longhorns wide receiver Mike Davis took a total cheap shot on the Iowa State defensive back who was covering him during their Thursday night game.
After more than a few questionable calls tonight, Iowa State lost at home to Texas 31-30. Most notably, there was a fumble by Longhorns RB Johnathan Gray that everyone outside of Austin thought should have been called that wasn’t. Rhoads is a pretty excitable coach so we know the rant would be good after this one. He does have a legit gripe here.

Well, until another loss they have as good a shot as anyone to win the Big 12 championship. But, I know as well as you do that the Longhorns are more than likely going to surrender that opportunity in the form of a few conference losses.
So, what are the Texas Longhorns waiting for when it comes to the quarterback situation?
According to reports...
Iowa State's offense cruised to 38 points against a bad Tulsa defense, aided by a new toy in Wimberly who slashed and sliced his way to rushing gains of 35, 24, 16 and 12
