Here’s the Oklahoma State Texas A&M ABC/ESPN2 coverage map. (ESPN)

Why can’t more interviews be conducted as well as this one between David Ubben and Brandon Weeden? Fantastic job by Ubben asking questions and Weeden was his usual candid self with the answers. Also, I think my “Blackmon looks like TO” thing from last year is finally picking up some steam. (ESPN)

You don’t need to scour the internet for realignment stories on what happened yesterday with the OU/Missouri press conferences and Dan Beebe’s “resignation.” Just read this one by Andy Staples. (Sports Illustrated)

Oh, and here was Burns Hargis’ follow-up. (NewsOK)

I like Berry Tramel, and think he generally does a job, but I think he’s masking the fact that OU got played (and pretty hard) in this post. (NewsOK)

On the other hand, I don’t like Randy Galloway, but he’s 100% right here, OU is Texas’ you-know-what. (Ft. Worth Star-Telegram)

Rece Davis with some great thoughts on Saturday’s game: “I called this game last season. It was wildly entertaining and oddly painful.” (ESPN)

A million times yes on this Dan Wetzel article. (Yahoo)

Bill Trocchi does a great job breaking down the game this weekend. (Sports Illustrated)

Ubben picks the Ags in a tight one. (ESPN)

Awesome, interactive Heisman update from the New York Times. (New York Times)

Weeden: “we’re like clockwork.” (NewsOK)

Shane Ryan: “Whether they like to believe it or not, State and A&M are the little brothers of their respective states. But the little brother who wins this game will have a fighting shot at the big kids.” (Grantland)

Here’s the classic fake Dan Beebe meltdown on Twitter last night. (SB Nation)

And here’s real Dan Beebe talking about fake Dan Beebe. (Kansas City Star)

Berry Tramel on who the Big 12 should target. I agree with his top 3. (NewsOK)

Blackmon + Tom Rinaldi = must-see TV. I wonder who will be tickling the ivories for Tom… (NewsOK)

Jordon Sweatt takes the Aggies by 6. (Holy Turf)

“For all the off-the-field news of the last few weeks, A&M and OSU on the field Saturday afternoon will be everything right about the game. Speed, athletic ability, offensive innovation and strategic game planning between great football minds.” (ESPN)

Anthony Slater is absolutely right, OSU hasn’t had a big time win in quite a while. (O’Colly)

Your #2 Cowgirls soccer team opens conference play against KU tonight. At least I think that’s still conference play. (okstate.com)

Sean Martin breaks down some of the unknowns of your 2011-2012 Cowboy golf team, excluding Uihlein, I think we all know about him. (Golf Week)

Some GREAT stats here, but the one that sticks out most to me is this: “Only 30.3 percent of Blackmon’s targets this year are coming from more than 10 yards downfield, compared to 50 percent last year.” (ESPN)

The front of the O’Colly today is pretty awesome. (O’Colly)

Yes. (h/t to Q for the pic)

This, my friends, is all-time…

  • Chance

    That’s 7 browser tabs open today, I think that’s a record.

  • Chance

    And if Air Force joins the Big 12, I would cry tears of joy. Having Big 12 action a few miles away every other Saturday would be…indescribable.

  • Paul

    Hey Colorado. Guess whose game is being shown in the PAC 12?

  • Katie

    Am I the only one who noticed that the O’Colly PDF has today’s date as Friday, August 23, 2011? (Had to…) BUT, still great front cover! Go Pokes!! So pumped that we get the ABC coverage in Pac 12 country

  • FreeMason10

    Phenomenal video. It should be getting more comments down here. Maybe I just think that because I like Boise more than the average person

    Last big time, statement type win was at Mizzou in 2008. Victory over the booger eater.

    It’s about time for a similar result. This year unlike ’08 there’s not a Texas and Colt or TTU and Leach looming large in the background. And, the Pokes are now definitely a little stronger too (though it would be nice to have Damian Davis).

    I’ve got butterflies for tomorrow’s game. Let’s goooooo!
