Wait, you’re telling me Tulsa and A&M is a tougher two-game stretch than Texas and Missouri? (ESPN Insider)

Wait, so was Blackmon trying to dive or was he trying to celebrate? (NewsOK)

Phenomenal graph that shows where in the country Oklahoma State is underrated and where they’re overrated. (CBS Sports)

TERRIFIC photo by Adam Kemp on the front of the O’Colly yesterday. (O’Colly)

OSU has had a Big 12 player of the week three of the four weeks of the season. Something tells me that’s going to be three of five after this weekend. (Big 12 Sports)

Here are all the awards Cowboys football players won this week. I can’t keep up. (NewsOK)

Blackmon gets ripped in New York for his fumble into the endzone. (New York Post)

Big 12 stays atop ESPN’s conference rankings. (ESPN)

I mean, I love OSU, but having them #1 right now is insane. (Tulsa World)

Great quote from Burns in a fascinating Q&A with Anthony Slater: “We had a lot of success back in the 40s, and believe it or not I wasn’t here then.” (O’Colly)

So OSU slides into the top 5 and now can’t get a game on TV? This response from one fan is classic…

Big thanks to one of our lovely female readers (@rhinds57) for sending me this pic today. That’s Dez in the middle, in case you were wondering…

Is this what you want from your All-American wideout? (h/t @a_wall15)

Ohio team loses their minds over black uniforms (h/t Dr. Saturday)…

There’s also a follow-up Bieber parody that’s pretty humorous.

    Why yes, that is what I want from my All-American WR. The only thing that would make that picture better is if he’d flexed his arm and screamed, ala Muhammad Ali when he KO’ed Sonny Liston.

      It looks to me like Blackmon is just looking down at him wondering what’s wrong.

      I do believe this was in the 4th after numerous AnM players were going down with “cramps” conveniently just as we were ready to snap the ball. It was pretty pathetic.

      • Jamie Wheat

        That uniform intro video was pretty solid. Glad Gundy acknowledges the importance of this stuff for college athletes.

  • Madsenpoke

    It’s a little dated now, but this is a solid article that I hadn’t seen posted (maybe I missed it). Pretty solid accessment of the wonder of WWLS in there as well about 3/4’s in.


  • AKemp

    That was such a fun video with Ohio. With all the talk of whether people like our jerseys, it’s just cool to see that the people that wear them are the ones that probably care the most.

  • Sorry, the Tulsa World article lost all credibility when they gave props to Iowa State.

  • @arin5000

    Ok, so maybe we can lobby Congress or stage a coup or something and have the NCAA brass replaced by Taylor Branch or Bill Simmons and the Grantland contributors. Then there would at least be logic and humor in the organization.

    The relegation idea works everywhere around the world for a hundred years. Duh, hello, America!?

  • G-Block

    Good stuff, Kyle.
