Good film study here from one of our new contributors. He looks at both of Josh Furman’s sacks last week in depth. (PFB)

Recruiting help, coming. The absence of Joe Wickline as offensive line coach doesn’t mean the position isn’t as important at Oklahoma State. If anything, it means position play is even more vital. The Cowboys might rely on junior college commits Deya Mhiesenand Brandon Pertile early, but players such as four-star Johnny Wilson and three-starJoshua Jones are expected to be major contributors. (ESPN Insider)

Does OSU’s speed and athleticism wear teams down. (PFB)

Seth Jacobs on coaching youth teams. I think more as a person. It helps you with patience a lot when you’re dealing with kids that are 10 years old. It was fun to do and I liked doing it. It was cool.” (ESPN)

That 5-star DT OSU is chasing thinks Stillwater is “beautiful.” (NewsOK)

It would be fun to see what Gundy could do with a fertile recruiting base and even more resources than T. Boone Pickens can provide. And as those in the industry continue to tell me, internal strife with the school’s administration is what could ultimately lead him to part ways with his alma mater. (ESPN Insider)

And you guys get mad at ME for this stuff! (PFB)

What OSU might do if Daxx loses his helmet. (Tulsa World)

I am outraged by this! (no I’m not, that’s what I expected). (Vice Sports)

How many times has OSU won and OU lost on the same day? (PFB)

Oh my gosh they’re making a 30 for 30 about the Boz! Via Nolan Cox. (ESPN)

Let’s just all be glad that goaltending in football does not exist. (CRFF)

Roll Tide. AJ McCarron can’t keep his mouth shut and then points fingers at the media because that’s what you do when you can’t keep your mouth shut. (FTW)

Seems legit.

Dabo!

Tomorrow = Thursday (as in today). Any guesses on OSU? I’ll say 7th.
