Last night’s meltdown against Clemson was just wondrous, wasn’t it? (NewsOK)

Also, this is beautiful.

Somebody on A&M’s sideline basically punched two WVU players yesterday. Bizarre stuff. (CBS)

Also, Josh Lambert got hit in the junk. The WVU-A&M game was borderline dangerous. (Yahoo)

Gundy on Ben Grogan: “We played him as a freshman. He didn’t get a chance to develop. He’s come a long way in the last nine months.” (Tulsa World)

Let’s talk about that Mike Gundy-Boone Pickens article. (PFB)

Good work here on the infographical preview of the OSU-UDub game. I like. (NewsOK)

It would appear that Mike Yurcich will return as OSU’s offensive coordinator in 2015. (PFB)

Really solid preview of what we can expect from Washington on Friday from a UW blogger. Their fans are more in love with Petersen than we are. (CRFF)

More bowl practice photos. I have no idea who the warrior-looking fella is or what he’s doing. (Flickr)

Gundy said he doesn’t know what Tyreek’s future holds:“You would have to ask him, and I would think he would have multiple options with both sports (football and track).” (Scout)

Texas was historically bad against Arkansas. They couldn’t even reach 60 yards. 60! Just a tremendous day for the Big 12 on Monday. (Yahoo)

Baylor doesn’t think its nonconference schedule is why it didn’t get in the Playoff. I’m pretty sure I agree with that. I think it’s sort of just an easy fall guy. (Fox SW)

On OSU’s dearth of running backs: “Hill went from Bedlam hero to zero faster than he can run the 40.” But really, you could have had a fivesome of Herschel Sims, Ronald Jones, Tyreek Hill, Devon Thomas and Rennie Childs in 2015. Have mercy. (CRFF)

Bryce Petty is pissed and Antwan Goodley isn’t wrong when he says the committee picked tOSU because it is tOSU. (CBS)

Gundy: “In reality you only get 13 practices in the spring and as tomorrow for us it will be 12, so we’ve really had another spring ball at this point and those guys have got a lot of work.” (Scout)

Justin Gilbert’s first year as a pro went very very badly. (PFB)

Shawn Oakman is coming back for 2015. Yikes. (Fox SW)

Travis Ford is considering switching things up and “uglying up” games more often. I’m intrigued to see if this applies to the game tonight. (NewsOK)

Cowgirls finish the nonconference portion of the schedule 10-1. (okstate)

You better get used to seeing Juwan Staten’s name here. (Big 12 Sports)

OSU has been awful from beyond the arc this year. (Tulsa World)

And since the 2010-11 season it actually ranks No. 262 in the country in 3-point percentage. (CBB Reference)

Wow, Kentucky is a 1-1 favorite to win it all this year. (CBS)

Kansas State was up four on Texas Southern on Sunday with four seconds left…they lost by two. Nice. (Yahoo)

Self-published authors are really mad at Amazon for creating the Netflix for books (also known as “paying $120 a year for a library card”). I find this article pretty fascinating. The lesson? Build a good platform and do things on your own. (NYT)

But more likely, the model will stay profitable until resources are so scarce that consumers won’t want to throw anything away. Ironically, the razor-and-blades model is bringing that day ever closer. (Foreign Policy)
