Russel Okung helped this recruit pick Oklahoma State. (NewsOK)

Speaking of recruits, if you missed my post over the weekend on the two new guys Travis Ford picked up, here it is.

And here’s what ESPN had to say about them. (ESPN)

Spectacular 9/11 piece by Jimmie Tramel. (Tulsa World)

Clay Travis outlines why it might be financially detrimental for Burns and Co. to pack up and head west. (Outkick the Coverage)

Crazy story about a guy going to 30 college football games this year, he was in Stillwater last Thursday. (O’Colly)

Thanks to BJax for passing this along, a recruit skips out on Baylor because…they’re Adidas and they have “ugly colors.” I love how Oregon being Nike makes their green and yellow that much better. (The Dagger)

Really cool view of Brandon Weeden from somebody who knows him better than you. (NewsOK)

Bill Haisten points out that OSU will be .500 overall with a W on Saturday. (Tulsa World)

OSU sits at #8 in the AP and #7 in the Coaches Poll, now they’ve jumped A&M in Ubben’s power rankings as well. (ESPN)

Really agree with Gina on Nick Foles’ passing yards being overrated and the OSU defensive line being underrated. (NewsOK)

If you like SEC football (or college football for that matter) you’re going to want to watch this. (Holy Turf)

Great point that with A&M going east recruiting in Oklahoma is going to be much more vital for OSU. (NewsOK)

Great line from Ubben here: “Oklahoma State is all kinds of legit.” (ESPN)

Tom Fornelli says OSU’s defense is improving, even if it doesn’t seem like it. (CBS Sports)

Phenomenal column by Brett McMurphy on Brandon Weeden and why he was so upset after Week 1. (CBS Sports)

Cowgirls moved to 9-0-0 on the year with a 1-0 W over USC and a 2-1 affair against SDSU. (okstate.com)

Love seeing this on the front of the Big 12 site.

Brandon Weeden needs some votes in the Davey O’Brien award race. The fan vote counts as 5% of the overall vote so get over there and log in. (Vote O’Brien)

Despite Peter Uihlein’s strong play, the U.S. relinquished the Walker Cup for the first time since 2003 on Sunday. (Golf Digest)

Good news on the recruiting front, 2012 QB Wes Lunt has hopes for returning this week from a broken foot. (Go Pokes)

Ubben hands out a helmet sticker for week 2 to Joseph Randle. (ESPN)

If you have time today, here’s a great podcast with Brett McMurphy about Oklahoma State’s national title hopes. (CBS Sports)

Only Gundy…

    Can’t believe ESPN and Foz weren’t smart enough to write the TV contracts with an out if a significant number of schools leave the Big 12. They negotiated those rights fess based on Nebraska, Colorado, A&M, OU & OSU being included not KSU vs Baylor every week. There’s no way the Baylors of the world could sue ESPN or Fox.
