The Morning Fade – 1.10.11



Title game day. Should be a blast, I’ve got Auburn by 10 but I’ll be pulling for the Ducks. I love my Ducks.

Chatmon on OSUs 2011 schedule – He ranks them OU at home, at A&M, at Texas, at Mizzou, at Tech, Arizona at home, Baylor at home, at Tulsa, at Iowa St., K-state at home, KU at home, and UL-LA at home. I agree with that list although I might swap Baylor and Arizona. Little Stoops’s squad did NOT impress me in the bowl game.

John Helsley on OSU winning ugly in hoops – “It’s a scuffling bunch that rarely gets easy points — even from the foul line — and labors for everything they get. And it can be painful to watch. Sexy they’re not. Unless you’re turned on by toughness, which these Cowboys appear to have in excess. And that, folks, is a valuable trait.”

Tramel on OSU in the title game – “Over the last 10 years, when talking about how far Oklahoma State football could climb, Auburn and Oregon have been two of the most-mentioned schools as guideposts for the Cowboys.” Auburn is kind of who we are: land-grant school playing (and recruiting) in the wake of one of college football’s traditional powerhouses. Now if we could just get Malone Mitchell to find us a Cam Newton…

Frank Martin with high praise of Keiton Page – “I love Keiton,” said Wildcats coach Frank Martin. “I say this in all form of respect, because I’m a lot like him, he’s just a little smaller. But when someone that’s his size, not very athletic, can dominate a Big 12 game like he has shown he does on a consistent basis, that shows a lot about the character of the young man and what he’s all about.”

Great Tom Dirato profile in NewsOK – “Dating back to the 1970s, Tom Dirato first covered the Cowboys as a newspaper man, then later crossed over to the other side, where he spent 30 seasons in the athletic department and on air providing color commentary for a combined 1,367 basketball, football and baseball broadcasts, along with another 1,292 coaches shows.”

Haisten on JWs arrival on campus – “On Saturday, he quarterbacked the West squad during the nationally televised U.S. Army All-American Bowl at San Antonio’s Alamodome. On Sunday, after traveling back to the Metroplex, Walsh will load his belongings into the back of his pickup and head north on I-35. His destination – the Oklahoma State University campus. On Monday, as an OSU freshman, Walsh will attend class and become one of the more highly regarded rookie QBs in Cowboy football history.”

Haisten with “state of the program” update – The Herschel Sims thing feels like Broyles all over again. Do I want to switch my commitment to the team that just went undefeated and won the Rose Bowl or do I want to stay with the squad that doesn’t have a coach for my position? Hmm…

The Dagger ranked OSUs win over KSU as the 10th biggest upset from Saturday – “A loss at Oklahoma State isn’t typically cause for concern because the Cowboys are so good at home, but there’s something about the way Kansas State lost this game that only adds to the questions about this team. The Wildcats squandered an eight-point lead in the final 10 minutes, showed little toughness down the stretch and then left the locker room without talking to reporters afterward. Give credit to Oklahoma State for a far stronger start than anyone expected after James Anderson turned pro, but this game might say more about where Kansas State is at than anything else. From the suspensions to Curtis Kelly and Jacob Pullen to the inconsistent play from Wally Judge, it’s hard to believe that Kansas State was touted as the Big 12 favorite just two months ago.”
