No one is quite sure what to make of Oklahoma State. | Pistols Firing

“In this week’s Take Two, we debate what Big 12 player had the biggest gripe about being left off ESPN.com’s All-America team, which did include TCU QBTrevone Boykin, Baylor OT Spencer Drango and Baylor DE Shawn Oakman.” | ESPN

What’s Going On At Baylor

Sports Illustrated is claiming Florida refused to accept Ukwuachu due to his past. (Note: Thayer Evans’ name is on this. You’ll remember him as the man behind the widely discredited 5-part series on Oklahoma State) | Campus Rush

If Florida knew about Ukwuachu’s past, they seem to be the only ones. Boise State is officially denying any knowledge of any domestic assault before or during his time at the university. | Idaho Statesman

Ukwuachu’s dismissal from Boise State was due to severe depression, not the alleged domestic incident. Which, as Our Daily Bears points out, is exactly what Ukwuachu also said while on trial. | ESPN

Coach Mike Leach Is The Best

Leach told Jim Rome that he once signed for a package while walking around his yard naked and on the phone doing a radio show… Wow, just wow.

“So I’m sitting back there, and so I jump in the pool to kind of cool off, because it was cool to talk on the radio outside. And then I was also getting Fed Ex’s every week, to prep me for the game I was broadcasting.

“So I get in the pool, and I get out and I’ve got my board shorts on, so then pretty soon every time I get out of the pool I’m sitting on the lawn chair and I got these wet board shorts on so it’s like sitting in a diaper the whole time, you know.So you know nobody is around, fence around, so I think ‘What the heck, I’m taking these things off. And so I don’t have anything on, and I get up and I pace, I’m a pacer, I’m pacing right now. And then talking with my hands on air making just really profound points on radio, and I’m very proud of all the brilliant things I’m saying.

“And then I don’t have a stitch on, and through the gate here comes the Fed Ex guy, here comes the Fed Ex guy watching me pace around naked, talking on the radio about football and all this, and he’s like ‘What the hell?’ and then he hands me the Fed Ex, and of course I can’t break the conversation I have to keep talking. And the funny thing was, I’ve seen him every week, he never said anything, it was like ‘oh well another day.’ But yep, sure enough.”

Who has the worst QB situation in the NFL? | For The Win

Nope, no risk of injury here...

Whoa, someone put all of Jason Statham’s punches into one video. Every. Single. Punch. Thrown!

This takes some serious skill. And he’s not bad on a long board either.
