Morning Links: UTSA Quotes, Oklahoma State Basketball Recruiting, Big 12 Things


A look around the world of noteworthy Oklahoma State Cowboys news and notes, as well as other relevant stories from the Big 12 and sports world in general.

The UTSA game left the pundits with plenty to talk about afterwards, which is a good thing in this case. The crazy action in the Big 12 provided plenty of fodder as well, and then there’s the whole injury situation down in Dallas, which affects plenty of former Stillwater Cowboys.

Stillwater and Beyond

– I’ll admit that I felt kinda bad for the Roadrunners when the Cowboys scored that last offensive touchdown on a long run from Raymond Taylor. This little story made me feel a lot better about it.

– Pistols Firing has a pretty good batch of quotes following the UTSA game, including Glenn Spencer, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite quote providers:

“They kept coming after the coach. ‘Coach that’s three.’ ‘Coach that’s four.’ ‘Coach that’s five.’ I said ‘I know, I’m watching the game too.’

– Brandon Weeden was playing it pretty cool after his 7-of-7 performance in the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the Eagles yesterday.

– 2016 Cowboy quarterback commit Nick Starkel certainly enjoyed the Weeden performance:

– Travis Ford secured his first 2016 recruit over the weekend.

– Expect the Texas Longhorns to be pretty motivated this Saturday in Austin after a loss like that.
