The Morning Fade – 1.11.11

Published

on

I’m loving all these binary days. Hope you enjoyed that atrocious title game last night, I have a few thoughts and what it meant for OSU coming a little bit later. Until then enjoy the all the orange the internet has to offer…

Jenni Carlson on why Blackmon should come back – She compares him to AJ Green and Julio Jones saying those guys “Both fit the mold of a prototypical pro receiver mold, physical specimens who are tall and sculpted. They look like linebackers but run like tailbacks.” That’s fine, the article is well thought out but I’m not sure when I see AJ Green I think, “yeah…budding outside linebacker body right there.”

John Helsley with some football and hoops thoughts – Good stuff here from Helsley including a solid assessment of JPO, “You saw some of the same stuff with Ray Penn when he wasn’t starting early. Ford was trying to mold him into a complete player. And until he bought in, he wasn’t cracking the lineup. Olukemi is playing starter minutes, so I’m not sure it reallyu matters. But he does give the Cowboys a major wild card going forward.”

Ubben with some insight on the OC search – “Monday was Jan. 10. What’s the progress of coach Mike Gundy’s search for Holgorsen’s replacement? Well, he hasn’t done anything. He doesn’t plan to until his quarterback, All-Big 12 first-teamer Brandon Weeden, and his top receiver, Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon, announce whether or not they’ll return to Stillwater in 2011 or enter the NFL draft.”

OSU ranked 32nd in the new hoops poll

Texas is nearing that TV deal we heard about all of last summer – This effect of this isn’t as great on Big XII football and basketball programs as it is on entire universities. Texas is swinging the hammer and everybody else is too scared (and not prominent enough) to do anything about it.

Joe Lunardi has OSU as a #12 seed in his new bracket – That’s probably about what we are: a 9-12 seed that’s going to struggle to keep its head above water for conference play.

I continue to say it, but Stewart Mandel is the best college football writer there is. Here’s his column from the ugly national championship last night.
