• We’re all arm chair college football commissioners at this point – but this is a pretty solid “BIG” Big 12 plan dwelling on long-term viability compared to what the Big 12 has been (small).
For the record, I don’t like that plan until OSU has to do it (when the current grant of TV rights expires).
• Tay Martin is “poised for a breakout”, Blaine Green is a monster, and Brennan Presley sounds like Stoner 2.0
They’re all pretty unique in where they’re at in their career and what they bring to the table but it doesn’t feel like we’ve got a guy that Spencer Sanders just lasers in on and rides for 75 yards a game, does it?
• This piece does a solid job of playing through the Dave Wannstedt report, OSU’s Pac-12 candidacy and the political aspects of a West Coast league adding midwestern teams
• Aden Kelley will be the defender I’m most excited to watch in a year or two – he’s a bruiser and he fits the cultural mold to a “t”.
“All the way back to when he was in a booster chair, he would sit in the pickup or the Ranger when we were quail hunting when he was too little to get out and go, he’d just sit and watch,” Martin said. “When he was just big enough to go, he was going.”
Kelley fits the ideal mold of an Oklahoma State student, perfectly.
• It’s so weird but I’m more excited to see OSU on the field for third down on defense than I am for them to see a third down on offense
• Has there been a sports week in OSU history that felt longer than this one?
