Cowboys Ride for Free has their breakdown of the K-State/Oklahoma State matchup.

The breakdown doesn't include Justin Blackmon, who is suspended for the game after being arrested on suspicion of DUI outside Dallas early Tuesday morning.

Congrats to K-State student athletes for leading the Big 12 in graduation rate for the fourth consecutive year.

Wally Judge is ready to go after offseason spinal surgery.

(excuse me while I get my soapbox out...)

A Notre Dame student assistant was killed when the tower from which he was videotaping practice "collapsed" (looks more like it was blown over by the 50+ mph winds).  The student made posts to his Facebook page about the wind, including a disturbing one about how he had lived long enough.  After the tower collapse, the football team continued to practice for another 20 or 30 minutes.  You know, no big deal, just a tower taller than a goalpost blowing over with people on top of it.  How could that possibly result in tragedy?

Nebraska backup linebacker Eric Martin is suspended for this weekend's game against Missouri after a vicious helmet-to-helmet block in the Oklahoma State game (hit found after 1:30 in the video).  I don't know the status of the OSU player who was hit, but he had to be helped off the field.  To Nebraska fans, this is no doubt the next sign that there are evil conspiratorial forces in the world, ala the fake Holocaust, fabricated moon landing, the inside forces who carried out the 9/11 attacks, and those Big 12 refs they got for the Texas game.  Never mind that Martin led with the crown of his helmet right to the OSU player's facemask, football is a contact sport, as the guy who posted the video reminds you.  Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is probably something a bunch of Nebraska-hating doctors dreamed up, too, just to stick it to Pelini's boys.
