-Could T.Boone get his Big 12 Championship before he’s a rotting carcas? You know the old man made a deal with God. That’s the only way a program as cursed as Oklahoma State could be in this position.
God:, “You can have the conference title, but I want the soul of Mike Holder.”
T.Boone: “Deal. He’s probably going to hell anyway. What do you want for a national championship?”
God (chuckles): “Get real. We’re still talking about Oklahoma State, right? You’ll take your Big 12 Title and you’ll like it.” (*unpauses “Glee” from the DVR*)
Of course, instead of reveling in the Cowboys gridiron success, T.Boone is making the media rounds promoting legislation to require cross-country trucks to be powered by natural gas. You want natural gas? (*Author regresses in maturity 15 years, leans over and farts*)
-I’m appreciative that Oklahoma State is frequently on television. But Fox Sports has to work on that ticker. I know I’m watching a Big 12 game. But I don’t need to see the Kansas State-Iowa State score 37 times in five minutes. There’s a slim chance I might be interested in some other scores around the country. I have diaper money running on the Holy Cross over/under.
-Two things I’ve been correct about this season: Jerrod Johnson was over-rated. And Oklahoma State would be much better than pundits (a name that’s never used affectionately for some reason) said they’d be.
-This column by Dave Sittler is one of the best things I’ve read in awhile. In terms of interesting information. These comments by Gundy explain so much as to why he didn’t insert Brandon Weeden into the Bedlam game, despite the fact that Zac Robinson was playing like the wheelchair kid in “Glee.” (*that’s twice I’ve admitted my gayness*). If OSU wasn’t having such a good season and Gundy wasn’t in line to be Big 12 Coach of the Year, I’d be pretty pissed about that move. The Cowboys could have had a chance in the 09 Bedlam game if they’d had ANY offensive attack. And a spot in the Fiesta Bowl. But Gundy kept an injured Robinson in the game because he didn’t like the way Weeden practiced. Despite the fact the 27-year-old (*did you know that Weeden is older than his peers? I just heard!*) could throw a 15-yard-out better than 50% of NFL quarterbacks. Just saying.
-Oklahoma State is a 22-point favorite at Kansas. If I hadn’t lost my shirt and diaper money last week, I’d probably take the Jayhawks. But then again, the Pokes have proved Vegas wrong in every game this year except Troy and Nebraska.
