Last night I sat down with Patrick Vint of BHGP and contributed to their "Hate Week" version of the Black Heart Gold Podcast. We discuss the apparent jinx-iness of certain blog posts, the merits of the engineering schools, compare Jantz to Seneca Wallace and Drew Tate, and realize that hating Nebraska can be the unifying presence our state will need after this weekend.

CYCLONE OLYMPIC ALERT: WOMEN'S 10KM FINAL

Lisa Uhl, Former Cyclone, 2-time NCAA Champion, and she-who-qualified-with-one-shoe will be competing in the Women's 10km final today at 3:20 CST. The link above should take you to the live feed of the event provided by NBC. (That is, assuming you have a compatible cable provider, i.e. the same crap that ESPN3 pulls during football season. Which seriously can not come soon enough at this point.)

Hey! It's apparently RELEGATION WEEK here in the SBNation blogosphere. And we here at WRNL had decided to see what would happen if, say, the Big12 were to relegate one team to C-USA over the years....

End-of-game and locker room footage from last night's game. The first 10 seconds has Scotty kissing the I-State logo at half court and fans rushing on to the court. Fred's strictly business persona in the locker room doesn't have the compelling watchability that Paul Rhoads' locker room speeches have, but it's pretty clear why the team buys into what he's selling. Iowa State fans last night also contributed to further research into the court-and-field rushing sciences, determining that it is acceptable to rush the court after a win over a top 10 team, even if Vegas has you favored by two points. (Also, I don't think there's ever an instance where Jamie Pollard doesn't come off as incredibly awkward. But, his last few hires as an AD seem absolutely brilliant now, so we'll go easy on him.)
