DeForest has Gundy’s full support – “Special teams coach Joe DeForest could be a leading candidate to become the next head coach at Louisiana-Lafayette. Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said he’s likely to allow DeForest to begin his new job immediately if the long-time assistant is hired at ULL within the next two weeks.” Good to see that, JD really got it together after the Nebraska game and the special teams played well in the 2nd half of the season. I hope he gets the job.

This might be the last OSU basketball game in Tulsa for a while – I wonder what there is to “work out.” Surely the basketball is just a tack-on to the football contract but what’s holding it up? Do we not give them enough money? Do they want a home and home and we want a 2 for 1? I’d like to see us get this done, I like playing Oklahoma teams who aren’t from Norman.

Von Miller wins the Butkus and Sam Acho wins the academic Heisman – Good for them, they both seem like good guys. Plus they had to give Texas something, right? I’m actually semi-surprised they didn’t just create a bowl for them to play in. The first team could have played the second team, it probably would have been one of the ten best attended bowls…

I got this about 5 different times yesterday from various people. As one of my friends said, “I’m surprised it doesn’t come with a foam finger as well…”

SI doing it right with a self-simulation playoff bracket – I was only on here for about 45 minutes….the farthest I could get OSU was to the Final Four. Yeah, NCAA, don’t do this, it’s not exciting or fun for anyone. None of us would be captivated.

Stewart Mandel ranks the Alamo Bowl as the 8th best bowl – “Justin Blackmon, meet Juron Criner. You’re both exceptionally talented receivers, and since defense is optional in bowl games, we fully expect you to combine for about 23 catches and 283 yards.”

CBS blog blowing a Blackmon quote – It was Weeden who had the “Sam Bradford money” quote, not Blackmon, come on guys.

Boise’s president is unhappy about BCS mix-up – I fully support any opportunity taken to blast the BCS and the NCAA for allowing it to happen. Go Boise.

Gregg Doyel on the BCS – “Want to appreciate your spouse more today than you did yesterday? Compare him or her to the gross slob down the street.That was the old bowl system — the gross slob down the street. That’s what the college football season went home to every night. Now we’ve got the BCS. Most of you hate it, but most of you love Oregon vs. Auburn. Hate to tell you, but Oregon vs. Auburn is the BCS.” If you’re Bill Hancock are you excited about this comparison…or no?

Does this picture scare anyone else?
