Good profile of Jordan Sterns here. He used to play RB in high school until his high school realized it also had Malcolm Brown. (O’Colly)

The “throw it deep and hope a fast guy runs under it” game plan isn’t working. We should have seen this coming more after the Tech game, I think. (NewsOK)

Ubben did a deep dive on how coaches voted in the crazy 2008 Big 12 finish and Art Briles ain’t gonna like it. (Fox SW)

I’m really impressed by what the CFP committee did yesterday. I didn’t think they’d be this progressive with ranking a one-loss team ahead of an undefeated team and TCU ahead of Baylor. Note to Mike Gundy: Play good teams in the preseason. (CBS Sports)

Uni Roundtable: We ranked the OSU helmets. (PFB)

And a few minutes later they came out with a new one. (PFB)

I sort of disagree that offense is the way to win in the Big 12. Also, Texas defensive efficiency is terrifying. So is its offensive efficiency but in a different way. (NewsOK)

Gundy on Joe Wickline: “It will be a little unusual to look over there and see (Wickline) with his glasses and clipboard. If Joe’s happy with where he’s at in his career, then we’re happy. He was good for us here for a long time. We won a lot of football games together. Those things, you can never change.” (Tulsa World)

I don’t know that Texas and OSU were in the same spot to begin the season. Texas wasn’t hanging with FSU in Dallas in August. But the point remains: Pokes and Horns are going in opposite directions. (Tulsa World)

Tre Flowers: “I think we can bounce back from anything. I know people say we are young, but I think we are all ready to play.” (NewsOK)

I’ve almost run out of way to show how bad we are on offense. (PFB)

I’m getting irrationally excited about Anthony Hickey. (Tulsa World)

Louisville’s new basketball unis? I still can’t get past the camo-y look. (Yahoo)

Read this post from Charlie Pierce for the headline alone (and because the writing is embarrassingly great). (Grantland)

Good little Cowgirls primer here for the forthcoming season. (Big 12 Sports)

I’m fascinated by net neutrality. I’m not totally sure I understand it in full yet, but I’m fascinated by it. (Vox)
