Good roundtable here from CRFF. I liked this from Taylor York: I want to see the offense come out looking complete. They don’t have to win, I just don’t want then to look like a bunch of freshman, even if they are.” (CRFF)

Speaking of things I liked from Taylor York, I missed this piece on Mike Yurcich from earlier. It’s good. (CRFF)

Hill has the tools to be the best big-play back in the conference. He also figures to be the focal point of the Oklahoma State attack. Up until last season, the Cowboys had enjoyed a 1,000-yard rusher in six consecutive seasons. Hill will start another 1,000-yard rushing streak for the Pokes in a big way in 2014.  (ESPN)

Gundy: J.W. still hasn’t played one full season. He’s been in a lot of practices. He came in a semester early, and he’s been here a long time, so it’s like he’s been here for 10 years.” (NewsOK)
