Hopefully not the last time I’m quoted on Grantland. Great stuff (as always) from Brian Phillips. He writes beautifully. (Grantland)

Great idea here from John Rhode on what OSU fans can do to affect the national title picture for OSU. (NewsOK)

Our first 2011 OSU book. (O’Colly)

Stewart Mandel seems impressed that OSU isn’t disappointed. (Sports Illustrated)

Pretty interesting article arguing for the merits of the BCS in lieu of a playoff. (ESPN Insider)

Great stuff here from Anthony Slater on how OSU has come full circle. (O’Colly)

Truth from a Cowboy FB here:

Bron Bron weighs in:

One of the many great scenes from Saturday night:

  • Chris Wright

    It was WAY more than just 8 years of frustration. Try about 65 years of frustration.

  • Chance

    So you’re the OSU-blogger friend? I wondered if that was you.

    Berry Tramel is correct here: we should enjoy the Fiesta Bowl.

    I agree. I don’t want OSU fans to become bitter – not that we can’t hope for eventual change in the system.

  • CTC

    If the BCS wants to keep up its image the first thing they need to do is no longer let Greg Aumen be a harris voter (or maybe harris poll has to fire him). A 28 pt loss at home to S.Miss isn’t worse than a 6 pt loss in double ot at Iowa St, who by the way beat his beloved Hawkeyes this year? Yea I bet it does pay really well when Nick Saban calls you up and says that there is an extra 20K in it for voting OSU 6. Blows my mind

  • Texastln

    Yes–Relax and don’t be bitter. Remember these guys have been hit hard by the lobbying for Alabama.

    “ESPN is to SEC fotball as Fox is to the Republican party”–biggest water carriers ever!!

  • Dustin

    Griffin’s quote doesn’t so much personify “swag” as it does “arrogance” Ubbs…

    Either way gimme Weeden any day.

    And yeah-after my initial nonsense-I think the Fiesta is going to be a blast. The Pokes-Stanford sub plot (both lay claim to the same space) has been interesting too. Gonna be a fun one!

    And who knows, eventually the BC$ will get dissolved, and this year could be a major impetus for that.

    So proud of the Pokes!

  • TJ

    What great defensive plays were made by Baylor against us? What play/s is/are Ubben refering to?

  • ryan

    We didnt get snubbed, we lost to Iowa state, yes iowa state..how is this so hard to figure out? alabama lost to number 1 LSU. home or away doesnt matter! national championship teams dont lose to the iowa states of the world, we had a great season, but we are not ready for the big stage until we can beat the unranked teams period!

    • Kyle Porter

      Was Florida ready for the big stage when they lost at home to unranked Ole Miss as a 20+ point favorite and went on to win the title…or no?
