Football

Good point here by Yurcich that OSU has endured a lot of football this fall already sans injuries. I always point back to Gundy’s “no hitting” rule in the spring and fall. I think it’s really, really smart and doesn’t get the credit it deserves. (NewsOK)

Wow, Brandon Chatmon thinks Daxx will get a shot at being the starting QB at OSU at some point this season. (ESPN)

Kirk Herbstreit on Gundy and OSU: “The last five or six years, I will pay him the compliment that his team is no longer a rebuilding type of team.” (NewsOK)

Van Malone: “Well, it’s the first day with the guys that we kind of know are going to be travelling and are going to be playing in the game, so it went OK. Coaches never say that after day one – this is what we consider as really day one; really getting into Florida State. We’ve got a lot of work to do, but we can live with today a little bit.” (okstate)

I agree with this from Berry on the reason OSU is now a Big 12 heavyweight. I even wrote about it a little bit yesterday, too (see below). (NewsOK)

Five things we learned from fall camp. (PFB)

Interesting quote from Ra’Shaad Samples here: “I watched Oklahoma State play Texas A&M when Blackmon was there. That was probably one of the most amazing games I’ve seen. After that, I watched closely, every single Oklahoma State game.” (NewsOK)

Pretty fascinating stuff here from the Texas AD on paying student athletes. (Yahoo)

OKC Dave crushes again with his 2014 football survey and results. (PFB)

A really long and interesting Big 12 preview. (Grantland)

But the biggest surprise at the moment is the news that hasn’t happened. More specifically, that J.W. Walsh hasn’t won the starting job yet at Oklahoma State. (ESPN)

Under Armour gonna Under Armour but these new Notre Dame unis aren’t terrible. (CBS Sports)

Van the Man.

Boone gonna Boone.

Sometimes it feels like Travis Ford looks for a million ways to make OSU fans like him in lieu of the one that will actually work: winning games. (NewsOK)

Four-star recruit Joe Burton is not enrolled at Oklahoma State as the university begins classes this week. Burton is still trying to get eligible in time to enroll for this semester. The deadline to add classes for the fall semester is Aug. 29, according to the Office of the Registrar website. (Tulsa World)

I loved this TED talk by a magician/crossword puzzle creator. (TED)

If you want to be more productive and creative, and to have more energy, the science dictates that you should partition your day into project periods. Your social networking should be done during a designated time, not as constant interruptions to your day. (New York Times)

Research shows that 81 percent of people say they have at least one book in them. (Entrepreneur)

Weird? Yeah, so weird.

Awesome.
