Happy (late) Veterans Day.

Photos from the WVU game. The Gilbert one is unreal. (NewsOK)

I don’t know if the productivity from the passing game was necessarily unexpected…but that’s a great pic of Dana and Gundy. (Tulsa World)

This game was a lot more encouraging than it would appear. (NewsOK)

Jimmie Tramel hands out grades, I concur…and the special teams were terrific. (Tulsa World)

I don’t understand how the Chelf train thing has made it this far. (NewsOK)

Ubben has us 4th in his power rankings. Fair. (ESPN)

There are times you’re human (and think), ‘We’ve lost this guy and that guy.’ And you’ve got to pull your pants up and say, ‘So what? We’ve got to figure it out.’ That’s what we’re supposed to do.(NewsOK)

There’s a Tommy Tuberville-GA incident connection at OSU. (Tulsa World)

Chelf made the right decision on 48 out of 50 tries. (NewsOK)

Quotes from the game. (okstate)

Good recap here from Slater. (NewsOK)

Interesting that Gundy wasn’t upset about the penalties. (O’Colly)

Berry with a good question: how many teams have ever had three guys with conference wins? Also, Chelf’s starting next week I bet. (NewsOK)

Some good thoughts on the game from Cincy Joe. (CRFF)

Gundy points to A&M as a reason OSU could have won it all last year. (Tulsa World)

There’s a lot of truth in this. (NewsOK)

So excellent. (Facebook)

I didn’t see the game on TV but this seems to sum up the broadcast pretty well. (NewsOK)

OSU bumped to #24 in the Coaches Poll. (ESPN)

Dana can’t believe Chelf’s progress. (NewsOK)

Ubben has us in the Alamo Bowl. I’d be down with that. (ESPN)

On who QB1 should be. (O’Colly)

Great football notebook here. I love the stat about how every player who has scored a TD this year is returning next year. (NewsOK)

Chelf gets a helmet sticker. (ESPN)

The Monken rant at the end of this article is so awesome. (NewsOK)

Interesting: CBS has OSU in the BWW Bowl and also has Baylor in a bowl which means they thing Baylor wins two of their final games against KSU, Tech, and us. (CBS Sports)

Oh boy, the Alamo against SC would be amazing. (NewsOK)

Game notes for Tech. (okstate)

Cool description of Justin Gilbert’s kick return. (NewsOK)

Joe DeForest has a tough return. (NewsOK)

For those who missed the terrific halftime show on Saturday.

    Gilbert’s ability to go from 0-60 in 2 steps never ceases to amazing me. And for the same reason I’m also amazed when he gets beat. How does he ever get beat on defense with that speed and acceleration?

    • OSUaggie

      It looks like he plays just a step or two off than he should, particularly on 3rd down…..

    • Cowboy-KS

      You’re kidding, right? Enough “postulating” on Justin Gilbert.
      FYI: Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, Tyler Lockett, and Chris Harper are all as fast or faster than Justin Gilbert and shockingly the receiver has a little edge on knowing where they are going.

      Cowboy’s – we’re done with the Justin Gilbert bashing. Time to zip it and support him.

    Consider me one of those on the Chelf train, at least for this year. I understand the arguments for starting Lunt, but I think there’s also something to be said for who gives us the best chance this year.

    OK, a question….If OSU were to beat OU, then OSU would be 7-2 in conference, OU would be 7-2 in conference (assumes both teams win their other games). Texas would have to win against KSU to finish 7-2. Who ends up #2 in the conference (and with a better bowl game by holding that spot)…..?

    • Sean

      We would end up in 4th place because we don’t pass the eye test and because the other teams would travel better.

      • Cowboy-KS

        A Bedlam win will lock us as #2 due to H2H, assuming KState dispatches the Horns.It’s highly unlikely a 3 Loss (remember that nighmare in the desert) OState would get a second BCS slot. Hence, we’d be looking for a Cotton Bowl berth.

        But don’t be surprised if the Horns still get the Cotton Bowl berth for $’s. An A&M vs Horns Cotton Bowl would be pretty epic, even if grossly “unfair”. Guess it depends on final BCS rankings.

        If you notice, Michigan got a huge bump for betting an unranked team. Don’t be surprised if OU or Horns get the same. i.e. An OState Bedlam win might only drop OU 1 or 2 in BCS rankings.

          You might remember just two years ago the Cotton Bowl did that same thing! They jumped us for A&M and we ended up in the Alamo! You might also remember that both bowls ended up in blowouts! A&M got killed in the Cotton and we killed Arizona in the Alamo! Reverse the teams like it should have been and we’d a had two really good games!

    However, if us and ou finish 7-2, tex 6-3, that would put us in the fiesta bowl again!… No? We would have head to head over ou!

  • Cowboy-KS

    Holy Cowboy Shite…….. This is HUGE! Tracy Moore is BACK IN 2013!

    Two players listed as seniors — Kye Staley and Tracy Moore — have scored touchdowns this season. Staley was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA this week, and it has been revealed by OSU that Moore will be out for the season and qualifies for a redshirt for medical reasons.

    First of all the Fiesta bowl is not obligated to take the “#2″ team, and even if they were according to the new Big 12 rules even though we would be tied for 2nd with OU if we were to win Bedlam, then we would both be just that: tied. The new rules do not use head to head as a tie breaker. The same reason that if 2 teams finish with the same record at the top of the conference they are just declared “Co-Big 12 Champs”

  • KS1010

    I think we are Alamo Bowl bound regardless of if we finish 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. The Fiesta Bowl will pick OU over a repeat OSU team from last year, and the Cotton Bowl will die to pickup a Texas-Texas A&M matchup. So by default I think we’ll be going to Alamo Bowl.

  • ChivalricOutlaw

    The CBS bowl projections of us in the BWW bowl can’t be right. They’ve got WVU ahead of us and taking the Alamo Bowl slot. We’re now 2 games ahead of them in the loss column which means for them to be ahead of us at the end not just one, but TWO nearly impossible things have to happen. One, we would have to LOSE out, and two WVU would have to WIN out which means we would have to lose to both TT and at Baylor not to mention at OU and WVU would have to beat OU and go to Ames and beat Iowa St. (which we all know to well is no picnic). The chances of one of those is slim enough, but BOTH!? Don’t think so. Really, if we win 2 of 3 the only team that can possibly keep us from at least the Alamo Bowl is Texas Tech. Unless of course, they are one of the 2 of 3 we beat. :-) Also, we still have a shot at the Cotton Bowl. That however, would take us winning out and K-State beating Texas due to a horribly missed called fumble that turned into Texas TD. UGH!

    Is CincyJoe actually from Cincy? I thought myself, Matt Pilgrim, and Tom Belza were the only three OSU Cowboys from Cincinnati in history
