    CFN.com Preview: Oklahoma State vs. Texas

    My Clemson alum/fan colleague asked me today if we are going to beat Texas this weekend. Here was my response/forecast: I say yes. By 4-7 points. Rationale – Our D is playing lights out and I think they are up to the challenge. We really shut down Baylor, who has been strong offensively in...

    I am calling it now. We won't score in the 2nd half.

    Big 12 week 6

    Yeah, it is a tough scenario for sure. And to take my orange glasses off for a second, this is what that scenario would look like objectively: Cincinnati - @ a Top 10 ND would be their signature win, followed by an AAC Championship game win vs. someone decent, and a regular season win at home...

    Big 12 week 6

    We're way off the "Week 6 in the Big 12" topic, but since we're not playing that makes sense. It is fun to guess what would happen to the CFP in this strange year. Everyone is fighting for 2 spots. It would take something truly crazy for Bama and Georgia to not make it. But truly crazy and...

    Self BOOM to me. See you again next year.

    Wrestling Schedule

    I think South Dakota State could actually be the 2nd toughest home dual (after Iowa State?). They got AJ Nevills at heavyweight (transfer from the "late" Fresno State wrestling program, filling in a historically weak position for them). They're not one of the crappy affiliates even though they...

    No OU, Texas, USC, Oregon, or UCLA. The new Big 12 could be called the "Blue Collar" conference (no blue bloods but lots of real programs).

    Big 12 week 5

    Going by recent history and my own desire: TCU KSU WV ISU OSU Can you imagine both Texas and UT-Norman losing the same week we beat Baylor? That's a perfect combination. Might as well toss in a loss for Alabama while I'm at it. :)

    Rock and a hard place question

    I have gone through thought processes like this many times, usually involving Bedlam. My thoughts and preferences rarely have any influence on the outcome. ;)

    I am now a Spencer Sanders fan

    Spencer Sanders is 100% our best option this year. I am actually concerned that we don't have a mobile/dual threat backup QB in the room (or do we?).

    Boise state/Game a thread combined

    Just looked up Boise State's punter... he is one of two Boise State punters who each had a punt blocked in Stillwater in 2018. I suspect he hasn't forgotten. Perhaps we can look for a rushed punt or two on Saturday... a rushed line drive punt could setup a return nicely!

    Big 12 Realignment thread, 2021 version

    Maybe I'm just an NCAA conspiracy theorist at heart - but the NCAA going after SMU "as an example" for everyone else is how I see it. They didn't hide it. But I don't think anyone else did either. But the big boys are rarely the example. Still waiting for North Carolina's basketball team to...

    I remember going to an SMU-Arkansas game in the late 70's or early 80's in Texas Stadium and there was a huge crowd. Lots of hogs of course, but lots of Mustang fans too.

    Well, what once made them a power house is now more or less legal. (Side note - even though I have family history with SMU and was a fan during the Pony Express days, I certainly prefer the Houston addition instead of SMU.)
