Here’s your introduction to the new Oklahoma State beat writer for the Oklahoman. (NewsOK)

Great read from John Helsley on basically the only positional battle left for Gundy to solve. (NewsOK)

Good story from Jenni Carlson on how Boone’s millions almost went to Texas Tech. (NewsOK)

PGA tee times/pairings today: Rickie Fowler (1:25) with Sergio and Dustin Johnson. Bo Van Pelt (8:40) with John Senden and Scott Stallings. Hunter Mahan (1:35) with Justin Rose and Louis Oosthuizen. Alex Noren (9:30) with Rob Moss and J.J. Henry. Chuck Howell (9:15) with Bill Haas and J.B. Holmes. Scotty Verplank (9:25) with Jerry Kelly and Stuart Smith. (ESPN)

I wish I could wager on “Brandon Weeden’s name will be on this screen on Christmas morning” in Vegas. I’d put a lot of money down. (ESPN)

“I just go out and try to make every kick” (dallascowboys.com)

Cool photo gallery of football players from Oklahoma arriving at training camp. (NewsOK)

Kendall Hunter has a blog that @coachgundy just tweeted about. Not much insight in it but kinda fun that Spud is writing about training camp. Also I guess the AD is cool with blogs now or how’s that working? (49ers.com)

Andy Staples sets his first college football theme to musicians. I like it. Even if I don’t agree with A&M at #6 and OSU at #9. (Sports Illustrated)

If you read one thing about the “A&M to the SEC” rumors make it either this (from the Austin American-Statesman) or this (from mysanantonio.com). Both are informative, neither is sensationalize, and both paint a clear picture for where all of this is headed.

Hilarious email from a reader: “Looks like Kansas gets the stretchy adidas treatment this fall. Look forward to seeing everybody’s armpits!” (KU Sports)

This is old, but a great read by Thayer Evans on Dez Bryant and his family. Hat top to Bryan Jackson. (NYT)

The best names in college football. My favorite is Boyblue Aoelua. Who names their kid Boyblue?!?!?! (CNBC)

You can vote on Tech’s 3rd quarter song. Where was this during the C4E fiasco? Do you think the AD would have still released the song if 98% of people voted against it? (texastech.com)

Great “where are they now” by Jeff Goodmann for the 2002 McDonald’s All-Americans. I’m such a sucker for “where are they nows.” I’ll read them no matter who they’re about. (CBS Sports)

Fascinating read on ESPN vs. Yahoo. If you love sports media then read this. Crazy stat: Rick Reilly makes $60 a word. (Outkick the Coverage)

How one dude got a sweet job at foursquare via email. Hat tip to Jeremy Greenfield. (San Francisco Chronicle)

Here are some clips of your new Oklahoma State beat writer for the Oklahoman. My favorite part is the kid at the 30-second mark.
