Cool Bedlam Storyboard – We need more of this. Who do I call to get one for every game? Somebody get Chatmon on this.

Broderick Brown could win an ESPY – Great! The least our offense could have done is turned the play of the year into like, I dunno, 3 points or something…

Jenni on why this loss hurt more than all the others – “Even as this magical season crescendoed toward Saturday night’s game, there was a great yet unspoken worry that all of the hopes and all of the dreams of Cowboys everywhere would come crashing down around them at the hands of the hated Sooners.”

Bill Haisten interestingly points out all of OSUs 10-2 seasons have included losses to Nebraska and OU – “If the 1984, 1987, 1988 and 2010 Cowboys convene for a reunion one day, they can bond as the only 10-game winners in school history – and they can reflect on their shared experience of frustration against OU and Nebraska.n A bowl game remains for the 2010 Cowboys, so they would be wise to delete the Sooners and Huskers from their collective memory. An OSU bowl victory would result in an unprecedented 11th victory. The opponent will not be OU or Nebraska.”

Eric Sorensen’s stat of the weekend – “Oklahoma 16 of 27 on third down in the 47-41 win over Oklahoma State” Awesome.

Stewart Mandel’s always good take on Bedlam – “Rarely has the Oklahoma-Oklahoma State “Bedlam” game lived up to its moniker as vividly as it did Saturday night. The teams combined for 40 points in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma’s Landry Jones threw for touchdowns of 86 and 76 yards. He and Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden combined for six touchdowns and six interceptions. When all was said and done, the Sooners (10-2) had prevailed, 47-41, with Jones finally earning his first signature road win and Bob Stoops earning his eighth trip to the Big 12 title game. The Cowboys (10-2) missed what may have been their last and best chance to win the division before the league goes to 10 teams next year.”

Dr. Saturday blog’s take on Bedlam – “Oklahoma “held” Oklahoma State to 379 yards on 5.7 per play in the Sooners’ 47-41 win in Stillwater, only the second time this year the Cowboys’ top-ranked offense has failed to reach 490 yards or 6.5 yards per play. And OSU still scored 41 points, thanks to interception and kickoff returns for touchdowns that required Oklahoma to keep the pedal down to the tune of 588 total yards of its own.”
