John Helsley giving my boy Joseph Randle some love – “Randle totaled just eight touches against the Jayhawks. Almost all were electrifying. Randle, becoming a major weapon in the offense, particularly in the passing game, turned four screen-play receptions into 58 yards.”

Jenni Carlson already looking ahead – “This is the biggest game in the program’s history. There have been other times when OSU has played with high stakes, but never have they been any loftier than next week. Take everything that’s in play for the Cowboys, add in the Bedlam rivalry, and you have a game like no other in program history.”

Great article by Chatmon on the KU game – Some epic quotes in this one about from Holgorsen, “I wouldn’t replace [Joseph Randle] with anybody” and Weeden, “I tell them all the time, run good routes and I’m going to throw it to you.” Oh, it’s that easy, huh?

Rivals on why Gundy should be coach of the year – Ya think? Take a rebuilding team centered around a QB who had played 2 quarters, no proven WRs, and a freshman-laden D to the brink of the Big XII title and a BCS game, duh. IMO it’s between him, Mark Dantonio, Chizik, Peterson, and Patterson.

Dave Sittler’s case that this could be the biggest Bedlam game ever – “newcomers to this great rivalry won’t be wrong if they contend that this OU-OSU showdown should be billed as a Bedlam match-up for the ages. All ages of sports fans will certainly long remember what should be a historic build up for the 7 p.m. contest.” Hope it’s not a 9-6 thriller like A&M and Nebraska played yesterday. Was Nebraska just prepping for the Big 10 a little early?

GREAT piece by Matt Hinton on OSUs success so far – “There was no option for a top-10 team that leads the nation in total offense, cruises past Texas in Austin and (as of today) matches the school record for wins in a season with Oklahoma still to come. Weeden has turned Holgorsen’s “Air Raid” inspired scheme into the most prolific passing attack in America. Blackmon is the best receiver in America. Hunter is the best running back in the Big 12, at least. The Sooners come into Stillwater next week with all the big season goals on the line: The Big 12 South, a ticket to the Big 12 Championship Game, a ticket to the BCS. As for the really big goal, though – building a stable contender that holds its ground even in supposed “down” years – Oklahoma State has never been closer than it is right now.”

Gary Bedore doing a nice job here for the Lawrence Journal-World – Quotes in here by Gundy about boy scouts and gumballs. Quite the comedian, that Gundy. Weeden also takes a pretty funny, good-natured shot at some of his lineman.
