  1. Iowa State's win is Iowa's squandered shot

    Eamonn Brennan

    Iowa State's 85-82 victory over Iowa on Friday night was many things. It was a seminal moment, a truly great game, and a line of demarcation for two basketball programs that haven't had a truly marquee rivalry game since 1987, in a state that reall...

  2. Everybody's coming after Andrew Wiggins

    Eamonn Brennan

    No, we're not talking about the imbeciles on Twitter, the people who take time out of their day to write horrible things to an 18-year-old kid because he chose to attend a school different from the one they root for (and probably didn't even attend t...

  4. Hoiberg has Cyclones running and winning

    Eamonn Brennan

    DAYTON, Ohio -- Three years ago, Fred Hoiberg almost looked lonely. It was Hoiberg's first Big 12 media day as the coach at Iowa State, his alma mater, and when each coach sat down to field questions at their own folding table, the media scrum wen...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Pardon my saying, but it is the opinion of this blog that you should immediately go read Jason King's distinctly fun collection of pixels ready for your retinas on something called today. Jason looks at college coaches who, despite all their...

  7. Fred Hoiberg rewarded with big extension

    Eamonn Brennan

  8. Fred Hoiberg was better than you think

    Eamonn Brennan

  10. Royce White morphs into Cyclones' leader

    Eamonn Brennan

    All things considered, this was a rough start to the week for Iowa State forward Royce White. His much-improved, NCAA tourney-bid-hunting team had a big game at Texas Tuesday, and it nearly pulled off a road win. But "nearly" is the operative word...

  11. Xavier comeback highlights 'other' games

    Eamonn Brennan

  12. Iowa State fans stoked on Royce White

    Eamonn Brennan

    We don't know how good Royce White is. We know that he was a well-regarded high school player, the No. 35 overall player in the class of 2009 to be exact. But because White self-destructed so fabulously at Minnesota -- a stretch that included his fam...

  14. Royce White will wait a year, but oh well

    Eamonn Brennan

  16. Royce White ends up a Cyclone

    Eamonn Brennan

    Royce White's first year as a college basketball player -- a huge misnomer, since White didn't play college basketball at all last year -- was a total whirlwind. So perhaps it's fitting White will end up a Cyclone. (Or maybe it's not fitting, and I j...
