Word to the wise: when you’re high on the sticky icky and driving an automobile at night, make sure to drive carefully… … and more importantly, turn on your damn headlights! Defensive end Willie Scott found that out the hard way after a police officer stopped him for a headlight violation and was “able to smell the strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle,” reports...
Today former Iowa State linebacker A.J. Klein suffered a knee injury during drills at the NFL Scouting Combine.

A.J. Klein needs no introduction to anyone paying attention. A monstrous 6/2 240+ pound LB from Iowa State, Klein plays the position the way it was intended- with fire and determination.

Both of Iowa State's potential starters at quarterback had their shining moments last season.

Longevity and college football coaching aren't usually two words or phrases you typically find in the same sentence. Coaches are now fired faster than ever while others always have their eyes on the next job. Sometimes, however, there is a coach that is just a perfect fit.
