Great article that kind of got buried last Friday about some late night class time between Todd Monken and Brandon Weeden. (Sports Illustrated)

Great Bedlam series recap by Anthony Slater. There’s a quote in here from Davis Duren about how OSU might lead the country in walkoff hits, I think he might be right. It feels like they’ve had one every week for the last two months. (O’Colly)

I’m not real sure how to feel about Cezar CJ Guerrero yet. (News OK)

Also, here’s a video of him getting choked up during his speech on signing day. If you watch it will you let me know whether or not you think that’s a Steve Young mural on wall behind him? (Los Angeles Wave)

Great story by James Poling (and terrific slideshow by Adam Kemp) on the spring game from Saturday. Spring games are…worthless for the most part, but let’s be honest, Justin Gilbert could run back 97-yard kicks on the intramural fields with nobody out there and I’d be interested. (O’Colly)

How about the quote of the year so far from Todd Monken:

The reality is you (play) this game to win the Big 12. The goal is to win the Big 12 and beat those jokers down south; that’s it.

Mike Baldwin with some good points here that the old Big 12 north is about to get torched. (News OK)

Golf team finished second at the Aggie Invitational and were led by Peter Uihlein’s 6-under medal-winning score. (okstate.com)

16,000 turned out for the spring game, where does that rank amongst other Big 12 spring game attendances? (Holy Turf)

Good synopsis here by Chatmon on this spring’s breakout stars. (News OK)

And lastly, some observations/thought from Chatmon to end the spring game hoopla. If you can get through this and not be ecstatic about this September then we need to do some re-evaluating of your sports fandom. (News OK)

Spring game highlights. My favorite parts about this video are 1.) the swing pass TD to Randle (omg) 2.) how elite Jeremy Smith looks and 3. Chatmon standing behind Gundy in a lime green shirt and blazer trying to get some quotes.
