In today’s edition, I (Clones Confidential lead editor Brian Spaen) will be talking about a variety of news stories throughout the week involving the Iowa State Cyclones and the Big 12 conference.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Remembering the legendary men’s basketball head coach, Johnny Orr.
  • My opinion on what should and shouldn’t pass in the potential new NCAA transfer rules.
  • Recapping Big 12 football appearances in the Fiesta Bowl and Sugar Bowl.
  • A quick look at Iowa State men’s basketball taking on Texas Tech.

The first edition of the AOTC is not much longer than the trial run. It’s less than 15 minutes, making it a quick listen and it’s available when you are!

I appreciate everyone’s thoughts, praise, and constructive criticism on the podcast! Once again, I hope to have guests and possibly another host on the show down the road. As fun as it is to talk Cyclone athletics, it’s even more interesting when there’s two point of views.
