I posted this yesterday but here’s the non-Insider version. OSU projects in the top 15 for football based on advanced stats. (ESPN)
Baylor ranked 98th nationally in offensive line experience last year and wound up winning its first Big 12 title. Oklahoma State ranked 109th and won 10 games. (ESPN)
On the best coaching duo on the Big 12. (PFB)
Here’s how you guys voted: ISU (40 percent), OU (27 percent), Baylor (12 percent), OSU (7 percent). Travis Ford, ladies and gentlemen!
OSU with the ninth-best linebackers in the Big 12? Hmm.. (ESPN)
Austin Hays on why he likes playing receiver: “I get to catch the ball and run with it and score.” (okstate)
Why recruiting is overrated (except when it’s not). (PFB)
I actually don’t feel like I’ll miss Smart that much but this is a fun list. (O’Colly)
On the best shooters in the country: There was an impression coming out of high school that the 5-11 Forte was a throw-in with the recruitment of high school teammate Marcus Smart, a McDonald’s All American. Wrong. Forte committed to Oklahoma State before Smart did. There was also talk that he played well for the Cowboys only because Smart was always looking for him. In fact, Forte averaged 15 points a contest in the three games Smart was suspended for by the Big 12. (ESPN)
The Cowboys are also 10-0 in one-run games on the year. (Big 12 Sports)
If you’re into All-Big 12 tennis stuff….. (Big 12 Sports)
OSU is ranked No. 7 in track. Freek gonna Freek. (okstate)
Yeah, this was just incredible. KD is tremendous. (Daily Thunder)
Cool little mini-doc.
This is terrific.
