Blackmon and Hunter All-Americans – And deservedly so. It was fairly humorous that Broyles got snubbed in favor of Alshon Jeffery. Here’s what Stoops had to say about that, “I find it hard to believe how Ryan Broyles would not be a first-team All-American, he’s had an unbelievable year, and has been consistently a huge big-play guy for us in every single game all year. We’re at the top of the league in most every offensive category, and largely because of him. He’s had a huge year, so that’s disappointing that he wouldn’t be on that, because he’s a special player.” Sorry Bobby!

Gilbert named special teams player of the week – I should get special fan of the week for the show I put on during his kick return. I was like Tom Cruise in Rain Man crossed with Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire.

Good take by Pete Thamel on the TCU move to the Big East – “T.C.U.’s scintillating season, which has it just on the outside of the national title race, will count for the Big East toward automatic qualification in the next cycle. The Big East is locked into the B.C.S. through the 2013 season, as it is included in the television and bowl contracts. The automatic qualification criteria for the B.C.S. after 2014 have not been determined. If the Big East were subject to a review of its past performance, T.C.U.’s 2010 season would count for the Big East in that review. That would help offset a poor 2010 for the Big East.”

Cory McCartney has Blackmon 5th in Heisman race – “A severely sprained ankle didn’t keep him from keeping up his torrid pace, or winning a Biletnikoff finalist showdown with Oklahoma’s Ryan Broyles. Blackmon became the fourth player in FBS history with at least 100 yards receiving in 11 games and the third player to do it in 11 straight games (the last player to do either was BYU’s Austin Collie in 2008). But breaking Larry Fitzgerald’s sophomore record of 1,672 yards will have to wait until the postseason as he’s still seven yards away.”

Weeden finalist for Manning award – If I’m choosing from the 10 finalists to start a team with it goes like this: 1. (an eligible) Cam 2. Luck 3. Weeden 4. Kellen 5. Dalton 6. Mallett 7. Kaepernick 8. Robinson 9. Pryor 10. Thomas

Ubben on the Big-XII “middle class” – “Oklahoma State and Missouri have built solid foundations, racking up big win totals for the past four seasons — 40 for the Tigers and 35 for the Cowboys — and are teetering on becoming annual top 25 mainstays. ”

Broderick Brown and Shaun Lewis are famous – I think 2.6M hits means something has “gone viral.” I just love that 2.6M people have seen Ryan Broyles get obliterated.

LeBryan Nash update by Paul Biancardi – I don’t like the “when fired up and focused” part of this article.
