Let’s jump right in.

Just like with a band-aid that’s been on a sensitive patch of skin too long, there’s only one thing you can do.

This latest episode of Bedlam was a particularly tough one to stomach. After a pair of all-timers (OSU losses notwithstanding) in 2017 and 2018, we’ve witnessed back-to-back games against OSU that were not even close.

• Marshall Scott laid out his 10 Thoughts on OSU’s loss, they were thoughtful and good as always.

Kyle Boone handed out report cards to the Cowboys after the rout and it was ugly.

The Oklahoman‘s Jacob Unruh on the chaos that could ensue given OSU’s slim chance to still make the Big 12 title game.

*A scenario exists that puts the Sooners at home on Dec. 19 even if they win their remaining games. If OSU wins its next three to finish 7-2, Texas beats Iowa State but then loses to Kansas State, a three-way tie atop the standings is created. The tiebreaker is settled by each team’s record against the fourth-place team, which would be Kansas State. OSU and Iowa State would advance to the title game. [NewsOK]

• Bill Haisten didn’t pull any punches after what he witnessed from Oklahoma State on Saturday. (No reason to.)

For Oklahoma State, this season was expected to be special and include the program’s first Big 12 Championship game appearance. Now, I wonder where the Cowboys are psychologically. I wonder whether they’ll beat Texas Tech, and I wonder who’ll be at quarterback for Gundy. [Tulsa World]

And now some stuff to (hopefully) distract you from the post-Bedlam blues.

• These never get old.

Okay, 2020.

• So there is a spike in wild bear attacks in Japan during the lockdown. This is the actual headline from The Japan Times: Hokkaido city calls in ‘Monster Wolf’ to scare off wild bears

• A much-needed update: We are just three days away from the start of the Cade Cunningham era.
