Yesterday, Luke Sobba made his major league Bring on the Cats debut as his usual "Fantasy Fandom" was promoted to the front page. His excellent work recapping "Game of Thrones" continued and it appears Sobba will make a strong case for rookie of the year. If you are a Thrones fan and haven't watched last week's episode you'll want to avoid the article, otherwise go check out Sobba's "Missions of the Reborn".

Differing opinions from one of the major conference teams, Oklahoma, has expansion talks in doubt as the Chairman of the Board of Regents for OU, Max Weitzenhoffer, believe expansion for the sake of expansion is a bad thing. This runs counter to what Oklahoma President David Boren wishes, which is for the Big 12 to expand as soon as possible. (Kevin Haskin, Capital Journal)
