Happy move-in day to all my collegiate readers out there. Outside of four weeks in March/April that include the NCAA Tournament, Masters, and start of baseball, this is by far the best time of the year. Enjoy it.

OSU checks in at #416 on Forbes’ list of top colleges. OU is #453. Not that I’m not going to gloat about this but once you get in the 400s aren’t we kind of just drawing names out of a hat anyway? Hat tip to Nolo for finding this. (Forbes)

I helped the guys over at College Football Zealots with their OSU preview. Check it. (CFB Zealots)

Berry Tramel says the Big East could be a play for OSU?! Somebody make this stop. (NewsOK)

Gundy didn’t even know A&M wanted to go to the SEC? (ESPN)

John Helsley writes (correctly) that it’s kind of odd the Arizona game hasn’t gotten more buzz than it has. Although I wasn’t aware Mike Stoops was a “longtime nemesis.” (NewsOK)

More great tidbits from Helsley here on Saturday’s scrimmage. I’m not trying to be the buzzkill here but as my buddy Sheets pointed out in Athens a few years ago, our offense always looks good in the summer because it is going against our defense. (NewsOK)

It looks like OSU is going to SHATTER its record for season ticket sales. As it should. (okstate.com)

Ubben gives Hubert Anyiam and Josh Cooper some love. (ESPN)

Why are we so concerned with Clint Chelf? (okstate.com)

Four Cowgirls on the preseason All-Big 12 soccer team. (Big 12 Sports)

Pete Thamel destroys it here on A&M/Big 12. I wish I’d written this. (New York Times)

Strong stuff here about how deep this A&M story goes. They control the White House too? (Texas Monthly)

Andy Staples also doing his fair share of homicide on this story. I love this: “Another day in college sports, another victory for billable hours.” (Sports Illustrated)

Ton of good content here from Kirk Bohls, including a bit on Texas approaching OSU on being the second Big 12 game on the Longhorn Network this fall. Our response: “not happening.” (Austin American-Statesman)

Last A&M/Big 12 article: Matt Hinton seems to think OSU to the Pac-12 is viable. (Dr. Saturday)

Arizona can’t even score against its own defense? (AZ Central)

Seems like OSU pretty much wrapped up the Rivals Cup this weekend. (Rivals Cup)

Good stuff here from Chris Huston on the best seasons ever that didn’t result in a Heisman. It blows my mind that Colt Brennan threw for 58 TDs and finished 6th. Where would we be at emotionally if that happened to Weeden this year? (Heisman Pundit)

I did a little redesign to the site this weekend, partly for aesthetics, partly for legal reasons, and partly because of advertising. Before you get bummed out that we have more ads up now I implore you to read this piece I wrote a few months ago.
