Football

GameDay to Dallas. (PFB)

At least no one can doubt the research bona fides of the athletics department interns who went through the list of every recent grad to see if any of them ever played sports. The APR thing really is great. How many grad assistants did it take to find and convince one of the Lindsay brothers to come back? (Deadspin)

CoffeeGood stuff here from Berry on Joe Mixon. He’s been good throughout (Berry, not Mixon). (NewsOK)

Who’s more pissed about the new TU-OSU contract between Travis Ford and Mike Gundy? (News6)

Not a good helmet game for La Tech. (CBS Sports)

I asked a bunch of writers and OSU personalities questions about this season. Here’s Peter Uihlein leading us off. (PFB)

Nice lede here: OSU football is out of the NCAA academic hoosegow. (NewsOK)

I agree with Trotter here, there’s no way OSU is going 5-7. (ESPN)

Gundy on Yurcich: “We’ve taken pride in trying to develop an offense each year that fit what the strength would be of our quarterback play and also the ability we have to get the ball to players to make a play on the perimeter. So I would say that he’s more comfortable and has adjusted to being and competing at this level.” (Ada News)

A Johnny Football game-worn jersey is expected to sell for $100,000. Amateur athletics, baby. (Yahoo)

Athlon has its breakout players for 2014, lots of OSU guys mentioned. (Athlon)

Maybe the football gods will frown upon this and deliver the Pokes a W in four and a half weeks. (Yahoo)

Ranking the unis: No. 29. (PFB)

On OSU’s 2015 recruiting class: For whatever reason, Oklahoma State seems to be the team many forget about. The Cowboys proved that was a bad idea last year, and Mike Gundy’s group is making sure it remains relevant with a solid 2015 class. Of the eight total commits, three are ESPN 300 players. (ESPN Insider)

Hoops

SMU only sold $350,000 in alcohol for home games last year? (CBS Sports)

Marcus Smart is helping launch an Adidas shoe. 🙁 (Twitter)

Rickie Fowler will definitely make the Ryder Cup team. (CBS Sports)

Random stuff

“If I’m like a dick, then they’re like New Zealand guys are dicks. If you’ve just got a normal Kiwi attitude then they’re fine with it. That’s one of the key thing.” (Daily Thunder)

KD to Washington? (Yahoo)

Phi Delts, gone. (NewsOK)

How your giant American fridge is making you fat and poor. Pretty good stuff in here. (Gawker)

And that’s why we text and drive. People are willing to risk taking a life and ruining their own because they don’t want to be alone for a second because it’s so hard. (NYT)

Oh my gosh.

Nice.
