We will be taking most of today and all of tomorrow off. Hope you guys enjoy the break, and let’s get back at it on Monday with the Alamo Bowl right around the corner. 

OSU arrives in San Antonio

“I like our attitude,” Mike Gundy said. “You know what’s interesting, both teams played in the conference championship game, and I’m sure they wanted to win just as much as we did. And you go through a week or so after you lose what would be a conference championship game, to get the guys back up and going. Our first couple practices, as I shared with local media back home, were pretty average, but since that point the leadership and the chemistry of the team has taken over and they’ve been tremendous.”

Importance of Justice

Speed, agility, vision, creativity, leadership qualities — Hill has it all. Against Colorado, he will get a shot to close his rookie season with a flourish. If he has a good Thursday, then Oklahoma State might be destined for a great Thursday. [Tulsa World]

I think Hill will be a monster on Thursday. Game MVP.

Lane Kiffin Hires Baby Briles

The hire, from a football perspective, makes tons of sense and seems to show that Kiffin learned a lot from Nick Saban about how to put a staff in place as a head coach. Kiffin previously wanted to call plays or at least be very involved in the offensive game plan at his previous coaching stops. The Briles hire shows that Kiffin actually plans to take a step back from the Xs and Os and serve as a CEO, which is what he told FAU faithful at his introductory press conference. [CBS Sports]

That whole FAU situation is going to be … interesting.

Joe Mixon speaks

Berry on Mixon is predictably good.

Mixon has taken a major step toward forgiveness. Way later than it should have been. But when mercy is sought, mercy should be granted. Doesn’t mean the punishment ends. Doesn’t mean the ramifications go away. But it does mean redemption is possible. [NewsOK]

I’m not sure Mixon is the villain here. Did he screw up? Yes. Should he have been kicked off the team? Yes. But it’s not really his fault that he wasn’t, and it’s not really his fault that he hasn’t gotten to speak. He was superb when he needed to be on Friday, and now the spotlight turns back to Stoops and David Boren.
