I’d say this is about as Mike Gundy as it gets when it comes to recruiting. (NewsOK)

I’m not going to address this again because it’s the apex of stupidity but for the final time…in the post I wrote about Greeks leaving Homecoming early I blamed OSU for distributing awards at halftime because it created a scenario in which Greeks who don’t usually come to games come to that one and then are incentivized to leave at halftime. That’s all. Don’t make it something it isn’t. (Odyssey Online)

Is Marcus Mariota really going to win the Heisman? I really can’t see that. (Yahoo)

The Big 12 projections are pretty interesting. There’s still a better than 50/50 chance that OSU goes to a bowl according to advanced metrics. Not sure if there’s a Yurcich factor built into those. (Football Study Hall)

Kansas hired the guy who helped hire Les Miles to OSU to help with its coaching search. (Yahoo)

Pretty good basketball mini-preview here. (Big 12 Sports)

I ranked all the GIA courts. (PFB)

Gordon Hayward, boss. (Big Lead)

Travis Ford favorited some strange tweets and then I posted about them and he un-favorited all but one. Weird. (PFB)

Here’s a video preview of the OSU season.

Other sports

I picked Rickie Fowler to win Shanghai this week. (CBS Sports) He’s in second. I haven’t picked a winner in over a year (how do you still have your job?!) (CBS Sports)

Baylor beat OSU in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 soccer tournament. Bummer. (Big 12 Sports)

Speaking of the Big 12 soccer tournament….KANSAS’ UNIS! (Big 12 Sports)
