Daily Bullets – 8.10

OSU’s equipment manager on what the team should wear every week: “I hope we decide the entire season before we start so it’s not a distraction every week. And if we do decide, do we put it out there (publicly), or do we keep it to ourselves?” How long is this going to be a story? (NewsOK)

Backup QB Clint Chelf thinks pretty highly of Brandon Weeden’s leadership ability. I wonder if Weeden would have been this good of a leader at 22? (NewsOK)

Ubben with his first Big 12 Heisman watch list of the year. Hard to argue with Landry being #1. I’ll be surprised if Weeden isn’t at least at the ceremony in NYC on December 10th. Oh, and I’m a little surprised Blackmon doesn’t make his top 5, regardless of how long it’s been since a WR won the award. Some real thorough commenting from “DJ_Sooner” on this post as well. Clever, bro. (ESPN)

Dana Holgorsen is looking for a 3rd string QB…from his student body. I would be ALL OVER THIS if I was a student at WVU. (Dr. Saturday)

As you can imagine I’m…um…excited about this.

    So Blackmon goes from being #6 in the 2010 Heisman Voting to being unranked in the 2011 Big 12 Heisman standings… behind James Franklin.

    Okay.

    “Dana Holgorsen is looking for a 3rd string QB…from his student body. I would be ALL OVER THIS if I was a student at WVU.”

    That would be awesome if they made a reality show about this, for no other reason than Holgorsen would be in a reality show.
